Rajasthan to provide Bhagawad Gita to government schools

After introducing major changes in the syllabus of primary and secondary schools in Rajasthan, State Education Minister Vasudev Devnani on Monday said the Bhagawad Gita would now be made available in the libraries of Government Higher Secondary schools.

Speaking at a function in Ajmer on ‘Gita Jayanti’ — annual celebration marking the birth of the Bhagawad Gita — Mr. Devnani said the Gita was the foundation of human life.

“Gita means life’s philosophy and success is possible only for those who live by the philosophy of the Gita,” he said.

Emphasising that every individual must read the Gita, Mr. Devnani declared that copies of the Gita would be made available in the 13,500 government higher secondary schools in Rajasthan.
