Upcoming Events

Throughout the year a series of important events such as celebration of Geeta Jayanti, Janamashtami, Community Yagnas, Geeta recitals, Lectures and Baccalaureate services are organized by Geeta society to meet the social, educational, cultural and religious needs of the community. These events promote peace and harmony among the families and bring them closer in a relaxed spiritual bond.


Celebrations bring together several ethnic groups enlightening them about the basic belief of vedic ritualistic philosophy and necessity of spirituality in day-today life. On these occasions when people meditate and sing the glories of God, cook and eat together sharing their common experiences a special bond of relaxed understanding is developed, which results in increased desire for service. The spirit of mutual co-operation engenders other special virtues like sense of belonging, attenuation of ego and increased co-ordination in all respects.
