maamakA: pandavAschaiva kimakurvatu sanjaya |

– Dhrutarashtra asked Sanjaya – After having assembled at the holy Kurukshetra, what are my sons and pandu’s sons are doing?

Arjuna was confused whether to fight or not against his Pithamaha Bheeshmacharyaru, Gurugalu Dronacharyaru, Brothers Duryodanaadigalu, and other elder Kauravas in Kurukshetra.  He decided not to fight and asked suggestion of Geethacharya – Srikrishna.

Then Srikrishna gave him Vishnuroopa Darshana and gave a good lecture  – Srimadbhagavad Geetha.

Every moment a confused Arjuna opens the Gita to take the advice of Krishna . And through the immortal Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna has been discussing and debating and finding solutions to the various problems faced by the confused Arjunas for centuries and will continue to do the same forever..

The day is observed all around the world with the reading of Bhagavad Gita, which is referred outside India as the Bible of the Hindus.
