GORAKHPUR: Gita Press, the world's largest publisher of Hindu religious texts, will kick off its year-long centenary celebrations from Saturday and has invited President Ram Nath Kovind to attend one of the programmes.
Lal Mani Tripathi, the manager of the press, said they have sent an invite to the President, but the date has not been confirmed yet. However, sources said Kovind is likely to visit the press in the first week of June. Talking about the centenary celebrations, Tripathi said the event would start at Lila Chitra Mandir in Gita Press at 9.30am on Saturday with 'pujan', 'Gita path' and 'sankirtan'. Not just Gorakhpur, events would be simultaneously held in different centres of Gita Press like Churu and Ratangarh in Rajasthan, Kolkata in West Bengal and Bengaluru in Karnataka.
Gita Press was founded on April 29, 1923, by Jaydayal Goyandka to spread the knowledge emanating from the Bhagavad Gita.
Striving at spreading 'Sanatan literature' at minimum cost, the press sells its publications at a price lower than their input costs. Till March 2021, it had published 71.77 crore books, including 15.58 crore copies of Gita and 11.39 crore copies of Ramcharitmanas and Tulsi literature, and 261 lakh copies of the purans and Upanishads.
