Tulsi Gabbard to Take Oath over Bhagavad Gita

After an election night victory, Tulsi Gabbard will be the first Hindu-American in U.S. Congress. Jezebel reported that Gabbard, a Democrat from Hawaii, will be taking her oath with one hand on top of the Bhagavad Gita.

Download a free copy of that sacred text at this link. The Bhagavad Gita, sometimes referred to as “Gita,” comes from an ancient Indian epic called the Mahabharata. The Gita itself contains 18 chapters and 700 verses. This Sanskirt text is written in a poetic style.

Here’s more from The Huffington Post: “Gabbard, whose first name refers to a tree sacred to Hindus, fully embraced Hinduism as a teenager, and follows the Vaishnava branch that believes in the Supreme Lord Vishnu, and his 10 primary incarnations. Her primary scripture is the centuries-old Bhagavad Gita, whose themes include selfless action, spirituality, war, and serving God and humanity.”
