Gita Jnana Yajna in V V Puram

Pujya Swami Adityananda of Mandya center conducted a Gita Jnana Yajna in Kannada from 11/05/2023 to 16/05/2023 taking Bhagavad Gita for Daily Life in Prashanta Ganapati Temple, Prashantanagar. The Yajna was inaugurated by Pujya Swamiji himself in the presence of temple trustees.

Pujya Swamiji focused his discourse on chapters 7 to 12 stressing the need to understand that meaningful living is possible only when sincerely understand that outer world cannot be held responsible for our condition. We ourselves create heaven or hell in the present life with our reactions to individuals, objects & situations that just should be accepted as they are using our viveka. This is possible only when we develop a vision of oneness experiencing the Lord / Self in all manifest world of plurality accepting the fruits of our actions as His will and continuing to perform selfless actions for the benefit of society.

The Yajna was a grand success with participation of sincere devotees.
