The anniversary of the day when Lord Krishna spoke divine knowledge to his disciple Arjuna is a sacred day in the Vaishnava calendar. When the Supreme Lord speaks, it is like music or poetry. When He instructs and teaches, it is for the benefit of humanity, and when He dispels ignorance by His profound words, it is out of divine love and compassion. In this way Lord Krishna spoke the Bhagavad-gita to His dear devotee Arjuna, and through him, to all of us. This sublime “song of God” is renowned as the jewel of the Vedas, the essence of all Vedic scriptures, and the supreme guide to spiritual perfection.
Srila Prabhupada presented the Bhagavadgita As It Is without the slightest change or adulteration—as Lord Krishna spoke it five thousand years ago and as Arjuna understood it. The occasion is celebrated by reciting the 700 verses of the Bhagavad-gita.
