Our thinking, consciousness is our future. We need to protect, nourish and develop it to lead a meaningful life. Even a superficial analysis of the variety of exposures a person receives today, is enough to scare us about our future consciousness. Consciousness works like sponges that can absorb anything dropped into it. The television, movies and the internet together expose our minds to violence, pornography and insanity that we can easily get influenced and succumb.
The solution is to give a positive and morale-boosting exposure to our mind, help it remain focused; assist it in taking ethical decisions, empower to think with a balanced mind. As there is a hidden Arjuna in everyone; we should be able to discover that Arjuna within and allow him to grow. This can be best done with the teachings of Bhagavad gita. Many management colleges & elite corporate have already implemented courses based on the Bhagavad Gita in their curriculum, to shape the future managers.
WHY GITA LEADS
To serve this purpose, the International Society For Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON) is organizing a Bhagavad Gita contest entitled, Gita Leads (GL). This contest will be a fun, inspiring and motivating way to help us absorb in the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita, enrich and refocus our lives in the correct manner. Realizing the divine culture of India, we should emerge with superior human values. Gita Leads will be a helping hand to learn self-discipline and build a strong value system for the participants.
GITA LEADS GOES INTERNATIONAL
In last several years many organizers, under various brand names like Gita Champions League, Gita premier League, Gita contests etc. have conducted Gita competition in cities like Pune, Mumbai, Ujjain, Mauritians, Malaysia, Kanpur, Chennai and many other cities. Collectively over 1,00,000 participants from all these cities have participated in these contests in two categories of students and adults. Many national news papers have applauded these events.
Due to demand of participants and Bhagavad Gita’s experts some of these Gita contest brands have come together to give best material and experience to its participants. Many of these brands conducting Gita leagues have created a national brand with few international centers like Mauritius and Malaysia. The new contest would be called as Gita Leads and would host central online competition for all of its participants. This national platform would give high quality interface and pristine material from distinguished experts of Bhagavad Gita.
