Gita Jayanti Celebrations 2011

Hare Krishna!

In order to please Supreme Lord Sri Krishna, Omaha Gita Group is organizing Gita Jayanti Celebrations this year on December 10th 2011 (Saturday) at Hindu temple in Omaha. Gita Jayanti is the day Supreme Lord Sri Krishna spoke Gita to Arjuna for the benefit of the mankind in the battle field of Kurukshetra. This is celebrated across the world in various ways. We are glad to organize this festival in Omaha, probably first time in history of Omaha.

Besides other programs, we are going to have kid’s programs as well. We will provide training to kids to participate in this event.

Kids can participate in one or more of the following events:

1) Gita Shlokas for the age group (4 yrs to 10 yrs). Adults can also participate.

2) Gita Shlokas for the age group (10 yrs +). Adults can also participate.

3) Mahabharat Quiz (from 4 to 15 yrs)

4) Bhajans/Kirtans (age 4 +). Adults can also participate

We will conduct five to six classes before the event. Each class is expected to last for an hour and fifteen minutes. Each kid is expected to practice the given Shlokas at home for ten minutes daily. We will try to make these classes as fun as possible. Refreshments/snacks will be provided in each class.

There is no cost for training or to participating in the event.

All participating kids will get a gift from Omaha Gita Group on Gita Jayanti celebration Day.
