Dear Lovers of the Bhagavad-Gitä
Writing is very important for the forgetful people of Kali-Yuga. Prior to Kali-Yuga, all Vedic knowledge was coming down through aural reception, submissive hearing and memorization. As Kali-Yuga advanced, Srila Vyåsadeva introduced the process of writing by revealing all Vedic literatures in written form. Our attempt is to engage anyone and everyone in the task of writing the entire Bhagavad-Gita , with its 700 verses. Through this method, we can all come in contact with the teachings of the Gita more closely. This devotional activity will help people to meditate on the Bhagavad-Gita more apt attention. During writing, we can simultaneously see, hear, recite, and the verses of the GitÄ. For this Purpose we have started this transcendental initiative of
to engage one crore of devotees In writing all the verses of the entire Bhagavad-Gitä, taking a vow to complete the writing within one or two years. Every day, we can easily write one or two verses of the Gilä while reading the translations. Every day, we can commit to writing and reciting a few verses. Adding this program to our daily schedule will surely make our life sublime, peaceful, and joyful. Finally, it will help us to attain the supreme goal of life, pure love of God or love for Lord Krsna. In addition to the
program, we have introduced the Harinama Lekhana Maha-Yagna program. We urge participants to "'write one Mahamantra (Hare Krishna Hare Krishna Krishna krishna Hare Hare. Hare Rama Hare Rama Rama Rama Hare Hare) daily, alongside the Gita verses, in a separate notebook provided for this purpose. After completing the writing of the Gita and the Maharnantra, these books will be brought to Mayapur to be offered to Sri Sri Radha Madhava when they are relocated to the TOVP. The Gita writing book can be taken back by the writers to their respective homes as a cherished item for their own lives and future generations. However, the Harinam writing books will be kept in Mayapur, under a dome in the TOVP campus. We request all Gita lovers to kindly assist us by participating wholeheartedly in this program, either by taking a vow to write the entire Gitå, by sponsoring others to write the Gitå, by inspiring and enrolling others to take the vow of writing the Gitå, and by spreading this practice far and wide among all humanity.
Yours in the service to Lord Sri Krsna
