Chinmaya Mission Boston is pleased to announce the 2017 Gita Chanting competition. The aim of Geeta Chanting is to encourage everyone to chant, study and live the essence of the Upanishadic knowledge that Bhagavan Shri Krishna imparted to Arjuna. Our Pujya Gurudev, Swami Chinmayananda, is synonymous with Gita Jnana yagna. He carried the message of Gita to kindle the knowledge of the Self to millions world wide! 
Chapter chosen for this year is Chapter 17 - Shraddha traya vibhaga yoga
