Christmas gift for the Bhagavad-gita: 200,000 Facebook followers on Gitadaily
On the sacred day of Christmas, when Jesus Christ descended to raise human consciousness, I am humbled to see this significant landmark scaled by our small effort to share the wisdom of the Gita, which too is meant for raising human consciousness.
I thank all those who have joined in the journey of delving into the wisdom of the Gita daily. And I thank especially those who have pioneered this phenomenal social media outreach: Eshant and Sapna Garg.
I seek the blessings of Jesus on this day so that I can continue to serve lifelong his and my Lord – indeed the Lord of all of us.
And drawing strength from the Lord’s promise in the Gita (10.11-12), I pray fervently that he mercifully continue to illumine the life-journey of all of us with the light of the Gita.
As a Christmas meditation, here are three similar verses from the Gita and the Bible
Bhagavad-gita: “Those who worship me with devotion, they are in me and I in them.” (Ch. VI. 29)
Bible: “I in them, thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one.” (John 28.23)
Bhagavad Gita: I am the beginning, the middle and the end of all beings. (10.20)
