Gita Mahatmya

small-vector Here are a few things that Srila Prabhupada Said about chanting and reading Bhagavad-Gita:
"If one commits any of the above offenses, [offences to be avoided while worshiping the deity are listed] one must read at least one chapter of Bhagavad-Gita. This is confirmed in the Skanda-Purana, Avanti-khanda" (SB 7.5.23 Purport)
"Please try to read this Bhagavad-Gita As It Is. It is science of God. You will understand... You will realize. And chant this Hare Krsna Mantra, This Hare Krishna Mantra will cleanse your heart. And after cleansing your heart, if you read one chapter of Bhagavad-Gita, you will understand gradually What is God. What you are, What is your relationship with God. And when you understand all these things and you develop your love of God, you become perfectly happy." (Srila Prabhupada conversation May,12, 1969)
"Anywhere Bhagavad-Gita is chanted, that place becomes a tirth [a holy place]." (Srila Prabhupada quoted in Lilamrta)
"When you study very carefully all of the Literatures which are available, especially Bhagavad Gita As It Is, you will have in your grasp answers to all questions that may be put to you, Please encourage the others to read this Bhagavad Gita at least one chapter every day." (Letter to Upendra, January 6, 1969)
