Bhagavad Gita - Anyone can easily sing along!

Please visit for free audio and text downloads of the entire Bhagavad Gita in Simplified Romanized Sanskrit.


Dina Anukampana Das discovered Simplified Romanized Sanskrit more than 15 years ago. He also discovered a simple way of singing the slokas and getting groups of ordinary persons with no sanskrit background to easily sing along.... try it for yourself and see.... even without knowing the minute details and niceties of proper sanskrit pronunciation, anyone who is even slightly familiar with the Roman alphabets (ABCD etc) can easily catch the tune and sing along... this is a *major breakthrough* for the propagation of the Bhagavad Gita (the main scripture for hindus) and for the popularization of Sanskrit.

Apart from singing, he has also developed a way of teaching perfect Sanskrit pronunciation in just 4 lessons of 2 hours each, using very enjoyable accelerated learning techniques. (** please see for some sanskrit professors reviews of Dina's discoveries and the course he has developed.)

I have collected my sanskrit pronunciation course resources on one page now on our Gita Jayanti Int'l Network on - here's the easy-to-remember shortcut for it::

Singing the Gita. The story starts back in the late 1990's........

By the incredible mercy of my beloved Guru Maharaj, Śrīla Bhaktisvarūpa Dāmodara Swāmī Śrīpād Mahārāj (who is also known as Dr T D Singh in the academic world for his work on Science & Spirituality and in the interfaith world), I discovered a highly simplified way of getting people of all different backgrounds & languages to read and pronounce Romanized Sanskrit accurtely as well as a highly simplified way of singing the Bhagavad Gita with a nursery-rhyme-type, basic, simple tune.

Along with that, I found that if we displayed the fonts on a very large screen and marked out all the looooong vowels (dīrghas) with a big red slash, it immensely helped even the novice to know which sounds to draaaag. The field testing results in Auckland were amazing, by Lord Krishna's incredible mercy! ....

With the help of HG Padma Sambhava Prabhu and Rasaparayana Prabhu, we gathered about 200 hindus from the various local Indian / Hindu organizations in Auckland, NZ. They all came to the Hare Krishna temple of Śrī Śrī Rādhā-Giridhari on a Sunday morning to join us in singing the entire Bhagavad Gīta. No one there had ever sung the Gīta before.

Later, HG Rasaprayana Prabhu (who organized this event) told me that up till the time we started, he was sure no one would sing along with me!! But with the help of the simple tune, slow speed and big screen with bright red slashes, we had the entire audience singing along in full volume by the 3rd chapter!

We did all 18 chapters that memorable day (with a break in the middle for the regular Sunday sat sang and feast program) and the whole temple was reverberating with the lovely sound of devotees singing the entire Gita in unison. It was like a dream-come-true for me, and it was proof that anyone could easily sing the Bhagavad Gita. HG Rāsaparāyaṇa prabhu liked it so much, that, a few days later, he arranged for this memorable recording to be done (at one sitting) at his home: !

It was my beloved Guru Maharaj's vision that the holy day of Gita Jayanti (Birthday of the Gita) should be promoted as a common platform for Intra-Faith unity and cooperation amongst the various branches of Sanātana Dharma (loosely called 'Hinduism', a misnomer).

The first time we held such a program in the name of Hindu unity and cooperation was in 1998, Singapore, Śrīla Gurudev personally invited HH Swami Harihar ji Maharaj, the founder of 700 Gita Ashrams all over the world, to join Gurudev for the first Gita Jayanti singalong program. The program was a big success and it has continued as a grand annual event, growing from strength to strength each year. It has now become the biggest platform for Hindu cooperation and interaction between 36 temples and Indian/Hindu organizations in tiny Singapore. (Their website is

If you like this video, and if you love the Gīta, then my humble appeal to you is this: please PUT YOUR PRECIOUS FAITH INTO ACTION.... HOW? By mastering this art of singing the Gita and actually singing it in your home every day - it takes ONLY 5 MINS to sing Chapter 12 or 15. Please make this scripture-singing a part of your home's Daily Spiritual Routine (sādhana). Even if you can't get the tune, you can play the recording (download from )

If you do start singing the Gita daily at home, it will become your family tradition, an heirloom to be passed on to the future generations. Thus the sacred teachings of the Gīta will be propagated to your children and your grandchildren... If this is not done, the Gīta will be forgotten within a generation or two and the great Bharatiya Samskṛti (Vedic Culture of India) will be wiped out within our own families within the next two generations, because all younger generation Indians are intoxicated with aping the Western culture and languages.

How to get that skill of singing the Gita? Just keep hearing the tune daily or while you work. The mp3 recordings of all these tracks can be freely downloaded or played online via and the quick links to find the SIMPLIFIED ROMANIZED text via and (All these links can be found on this easy-to-remember page

And if you want to get into the details of how to improve your pronunciation, or to understand the diacritics (the little dots and lines used in Romanized Sanskrt such as ā, ṛ, ś, ṣ, ñ etc, then beginners guides can be found on this page

Singing the Gita is fun, simple, highly purifying and absolutely & divinely blissful. Please make it your Personal Daily Offering to Lord Krishna for His spiritual pleasure that you loudly SING His lovely Bhagavad Gita in your home every day and make your home a place of pilgrimage.. for it is said in the Gīta Māhatmyaṁ:

“Wherever the Bhagavad Gītā book is kept or wherever the Gītā is studied, that placebecomes the dwelling place of all the sacred places such as Prayaāg. At that place reside all the Devas, Ṛṣis, Yogīs, divine serpents, the Gopas, the Gopīs, Nārada, Uddhava and the whole host of their associates.”

Gītā mātā kī……. Jaya!
