Gita Jayanti Celebrations in District Jail, Kurukshetra

Antarkranti organized a special 3 days spiritual session in District Jail Kurukshetra on the occasion of Gita Jayanti, a day celebrated as the birthday of ‘Shrimad Bhagvad Gita’. Gita Jayanti is celebrated with full fervor across the whole region because of the connection the place has with the scripture.

The event organized from 19th - 21st December, 2015 was graced by the august presence of Sw. Abhedanand Ji, Sw. Dheeranand Ji (preachers (DJJS)), Sh. Subhash Sudha (MLA Kurukshetra) and Superintendent (District Jail Kurukshetra). The inmates marked a good attendance and the numbers witnessed a spike on consecutive days. On an average 325 male inmates and 14 female inmates attended the session daily.

On all the three days of the event, the atmosphere reverberated with the recitation of verses of the holy Shrimad Bhagvad Gita, the meanings of which were beautifully explained by the preachers. The preachers emphasized on the relevance the holy scripture carries in everyone’s lives even in modern times and also brought to fore the eternally vital and indispensable message to mankind coming from the infinite ocean of knowledge. The message of knowing thyself, the presence of the divinity within, which enlightens humans to lead a righteous life.

The inmates were deeply moved by the insights communicated by the preachers. Many of them also registered themselves for initiation into Brahm Gyan.

The jail authorities and eminent guests were highly appreciative of the efforts of Antarkranti and duly honored all the preachers towards the conclusion of the event. Antarkranti was also felicitated with a special memento, a token of appreciation in recognition of the amazing work the program has been doing.
