Rajnath speaks on Bhagwad Gita as the International Gita Mahotsav ends in Haryana

Rajnath Singh said that perhaps this programme is first-of-its kind in the country which was never seen or heard of.

Delhi, December 12, 2016: On the concluding day of the International Gita Mahotsav, Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh made a speech where he talked about Bhagwad Gita. He described it as the essence of life and said its message could rid the world of the problems, including terrorism, the humanity faced.

He further added to the significance of the holy book by saying, ” Our great saints had given the message of vasudev kutumbakam and treated the entire mankind as their family. Every religion in the world has its own Granth that paves the way to God. But Gita is the only Granth by following which spirituality could be achieved while living in this world.”
