“Even though it lasts for only a brief moment, the human form of life is very rare and valuable. In the same way the brief month of Karttika is also very rare and valuable.” – Kartika Mahatmya by Srila Sanatana Goswami
‘Kartik 2014 – CHAD challenge’ aims to inspire every intelligent human being to read one chapter of Bhagavad Gita every day during the all-auspicious Kartik month from 08 Oct 2014 to 06 Nov 2014. CHAD founder H.G Vaisesika Prabhu recommends Bhagavad-Gita Chapter 15.
We welcome you take up CHAD Gita challenge and spread it around by nominating your friends/family/acquaintances by tagging them on your Facebook page. Please also tag ISV Chad page while doing so. Thank you for your consideration!
Greatest Gift & CHAD
When the Indian President Narendra Modi presented Bhagavad Gita to Japanese Emperor, he mentioned, “I don’t think that I have anything more to give and the world also does not have anything more to get than this.” That remark triggered a big round of applause from the assembled gathering. Yes, Bhagavad-Gita is Lord Krishna’s greatest gift to humanity!
Bhagavad-Gita CHAD (CHapter A Day) is an amazingly easy way to practically apply this gift of timeless wisdom to our daily life and integrate it into our real-world, modern-day existence.
The auspicious Kartik month is soon approaching, a favorite month of Lord Krishna. During this month devotional service is enhanced a thousand-fold and brings the devotee immense spiritual benefits.

Let us make a sincere effort to read Bhagavad-Gita every day. This is our only real protection. As Vaisesika Prabhu writes “The devotee who hears Krsna’s words with a submissive heart immediately feels an ingress of causeless knowledge and detachment. Krsna is attentively watching us at every second and is ready to guide and shelter us. Therefore, today, and everyday, may we recite the divine slokas in Bhagavad-gita not by rote. Rather, with the urgency of a man or woman trapped in a burning house, let sing them aloud, calling for Krsna’s protection.”
