Hari Om !
Greetings from Chinmaya Mission, Madurai !
Madurai Chinmaya Mission is conducting Gita Chanting Competition for various school students in and around Madurai for the past 17 years. In all these years school children numbering more than 1, 00,000 were given training to chant Gita Slokas of various chapters and prizes were distributed to the winners. Many schools send more number of entries. As a matter of surprise not only the children learn about Gita but also their parents come to know about the Gita slokas to see that their children get prizes. That means in addition to 1, 00,000 children 2, 00,000 parents also understand the idea about Gita and incidentally about our culture and tradition.
We are immensely pleased to inform you that this year we are celebrating birth centenary of Pujya Gurudev Swami Chinmayananda. Hence this year Gita Chanting Competition will be at the International level.
The man power to organize the competition at the preliminary level, at the selection level and at the final level a huge number is provided by the Chinmaya Mission through voluntary services of Chinmaya Mission Devi group, Yuva Kendra members, Sanskrit professors and Lecturers from Educational Institutions and many spiritual people drawn from across the society.However, money power is also very important for organizing these events. The competitors are provided with necessary coaching materials, certificate of participation, presentation of prizes, providing lunch, tea, biscuits etc., for more than 2000 persons during final day competitions. All these need money and provided by many good hearted philanthropists, pious and religious minded persons.
May I take this opportunity to request your good self to help for conducting the Gita Chanting Competition to inculcate the values of Hindu philosophy in the young minds. The school level competition starts from the month of June and the city level final competition will be held in October 2015 at Sethupati Higher Secondary School, Madurai. Your help will go in a long way in spreading the spiritual message of Gita.
Gita Chanting Competition 2015 Budget Total .. Rs. 4,00,000.00
The payments may be made by way of a Cheque or Demand draft, in favour of ‘Chinmaya Seva Trust’ payable at Madurai.
With best wishes and Hari Om.
