Pujya Swami Adityananda of Mandya Centre conducted a Gita Jnana Yajna at Kabir Math, Kengeri Satellite town from 12/06/06/2016 to 19/06/2016 taking Bhagavad Gita chapter 7. The Yajna was inaugurated by senior Mission member, Sri Krishna Bhargava. Pujya Swamiji stressed upon the fact that we should try to get detached from the wrong notion that we are the body, mind and intellect but dwell on the fact that we are in reality the all pervading ocean of supreme joy and bliss. It is only through knowledge that we can get rid of this ignorance and the Truth will blossom on its own. The Yajna was well attended.
