February 13 - The holy sanskrit script come alive in laser beams as the Union HRD Minister Murli Manohar Joshi will launch the final stage of the Bhagavad-Gita Experience at ISKCON Hinduja Glory of India Vedic Cultural Center in East of Kailash, New Delhi.

The innovative exhibit draws on state-of-the-art multimedia technology to reveal the Gita's views to the modern skeptical mind. As the cyberguide walks unsuspecting visitors through, they will get a first-hand, sometimes even startling, experience of what the Gita really has to say. Here guests will delve into their bodies in search for atma, peep through their lives into the next, and find collective escape from the invisible Matrix of maya.

"By using interactive multimedia in the service of the Gita," says ISKCON New Delhi president Mahamantra Das, "we want to prove its message relevant to the widest possible range of people - from young kids to erudite intellectuals and all those in between."

The inaugural ceremony will start at 10:00 am with auspicious Vedic hymns. Delhi Mayor Jai Shri Pawar, All-India Congress Treasurer Moti Lal Vohra and Samajwadi General Secretary Amar Singh will be among the special guests of the function.

ISKCON (International Society for Krishna Consciousness) was founded in 1966 by the eminent Indian philosopher and spiritual leader A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada (1896-1977). It presently counts over 450 temples and cultural centers worldwide. ISKCON seeks to establish India's spiritual heritage globally and offers spiritual solutions to contemporary problems.
