Gita 365 App was launched on October 4, 2019 by Global Head of Chinmaya Mission, Pujya Swami Swaroopananda with the auspicious click by Pujya Guruji Swami Tejomayananda.
To provide a memorable start each day Gita 365 delivers a short 2 to 4 minute message from Bhagavad Gita derived from Pujya Gurudeva Swami Chinmayananda’s lifelong Gita Jnana Yajna to every smart phone with the App. With this app, a seeker of any background can claim those personal minutes with a revered Master who can uplift, enlighten, and guide the day to greater meaning. In today’s busy world, when people often lack time to watch a full discourse every day, this App provides invaluable and practical insight into Bhagavad Gita, crisply condensed by Pujya Gurudeva Swami Chinmayananda.
The inspiration for Gita 365 came from an everyday image in this tech-driven world – when Acarya Darshana Nanavaty saw how a railway porter paused one early morning to check his phone for a few minutes before beginning his work. She realized that those few minutes could be a valuable vehicle to impart the message of the Gita in Pujya Gurudeva words in order to change one’s life, and shape the day. With this idea in mind, she and her dedicated team of volunteers from Chinmaya Mission Houston teamed up to design Gita 365. The team’s efforts over two years, is their humble offering to the vision of Pujya Gurudeva Swami Chinmayananda to give maximum happiness to the maximum people for the maximum amount of time.
The App virtually takes Pujya Gurudeva to the seeker, through short multimedia segments, with strikingly clear videos, aesthetically pleasing and creative layouts, and effective audio-visual features.
The chanting of the selected verses of Gita presented in both classical and traditional styles enhances the melodious beauty of Gita 365.
Since the launch there have been close to 30,000 downloads of the Gita 365. It marks just the beginning of a journey with the Master.
Gita 365 is available free in both App Store and Google Play.
