This global forum will introduce the essence of Bhagavad Gita to all the participants, and will further deepen the understanding of the text to those already familiar. The Convention is organized under the inspiration and guidance of Swami Bhoomananda Tirtha, a renowned spiritual master from India. A distinguished panel of speakers, including leading scholars, thinkers, and professionals, will share timeless wisdom from Gita along with its practical applications in everyday life.

The first Convention was at the University of California, Irvine, in the year 2017. The second one happened at George Mason University, Virginia, in 2018. The broader participation in both these Conventions and the tremendous interest they invoked in the minds of the participants to pursue the subject further, led the Silicon Valley community to demand a similar third Convention to be held in the Bay Area.

The goal of this Bhagavad Gita convention is to introduce the teachings of this wonderful text and to deepen the knowledge of those already familiar with it. The philosophical foundation provided by the Gita will serve as our springboard and strong inspiration for discussion at the convention. Attendees from every walk of life will discover how spiritual wisdom enriches and empowers one's inner personality, thereby enabling them to assimilate various impacts from the world and feel a sense of inner expansion and elevation.

Admission to the convention is free. Interested participants are encouraged to register early and confirm their participation by visiting
