Mass Bhagawad Geeta Chanting 

In Commemoration of the Mahasamadhi of Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda, the Mass Chanting of Chapter -1 of the Bhagawad Geeta was organized in the School Premises on 02.08.19 (Friday).

  • Students of Std.V to X assembled during the Morning Assembly for the Chanting. Before the commencement of the resonating Mass Chanting, the message of H.H.Swami Mitrananda, distinguished disciple of H.H. Swami Chinmayananda and spiritual Mentor of  Chinmaya Mission, Chennai was read out.
  • The message highlighted the significance of Geeta Chanting  which is a ritual forming part of the Hindu Culture, that enables the Vedantic Wisdom in our scriptures to survive the test of  time and be practically useful to mankind. Chapter-1, essentially deals with Arjuna Vishada Yoga (The Yoga of Arjuna’s Grief). It focuses on  the scene in Kurukshetra where Arjuna’s condition  of  utter  despair and the mental attitude  allows the seeds of Geeta to be sown and attain Lord Krishna’s philosophy of perfection.
  • The Learning and Chanting of the Geeta was an endeavour to equip the students with the  timeless wisdom enshrined in the Geeta to face life’s vicissitudes.

The message was also circulated among teachers and parents for creating greater awareness about World Peace.
