This historic, worldwide movement of re-awakening to the Gita’s treasures is starting right here, in California, and it needs generous donors like you to make it happen. Our target goal is to raise $70,000 for this life-transforming project. Your tax-deductible donation will help inspire and uplift the community so that we can join hands to spread the unifying message of the Gita to the world. Future events based on this vision are also being planned on a grand scale in India’s capital, New Delhi, and elsewhere with the generous help of patrons such as yourself.

We invite you to be an important part of this mighty mission, and attend the 2017 Bhagavad Gita Convention in person with your family and friends. We also humbly request you to donate generously so that we can collectively achieve our goal of making the world a better place for us all.
