Importance of Geeta Chanting

In the “Cintan Dainandini,” Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda gives abeautiful example of the power of chanting – “The child may be in any part of the house;it need not know where the mother is; but the moment the child cries ‘ma ma’, themother appears and gathers the child to her bosom.” In the same way by repeatedlychanting the Bhagavad-Gita with a pure and innocent heart, like that of a child, the Guru’s grace and Sri Bhagavan Krishna’s blessings will be constantly present.

While reciting the Gita creates a positive vibration within the body and the environment around, it also teaches control and voice modulation which improves pronunciation as well as vocal musical skills. The regular chanting of the Gita also helps children with concentration, discipline, time management, responsibility, public speaking finesse, comprehension and deliberation. Learning the Bhagavad-Gita at a very young age has numerous benefits, some of which can be seen immediately and some in the future.

What is Geeta Chanting competition

Geeta Chanting Competition is a unique program that began as a Bala vihar activity, but expanded to include the participation of all age groups, is the Chinmaya Gita Chanting Competition. Swami Chinmayananda's brainchild to motivate children around the world to open the Gita and learn to chant its verses came with the progressive strategy to chant-study-know-live the Gita. Children, parents, and grandparents have thus been encouraging each other to participate in this healthy competition, of which the underlying goal is spiritual evolution. Today, while there are many local organizations that conduct a similar event, none can match the vision, knowledge, love, and training that Mission acharyas and sevaks bring to the table. Over the years, this competition also has been held on various levels: regional, city, state, national, and international (during the 50th-Year Celebrations of the Chinmaya Movement). From inception in the early 1980s to date, the Chinmaya Gita Chanting Competition, annually conducted in regional Mission centres around the world, has seen over six million participants.
