Rajamahendravaram, Aug 6: Two NRI sisters — Sindhu Vagdevi Vipparthy (12) and Shruti Vagdevi Vipparthy (9) — won appreciation from one and all when they recited 700 slokas in Bhagavad Gita from memory at Datta Mukthi Kshetram, on the banks of the Godavari, here on Saturday.
Devotees from Iskcon temple, near Datta Mukthi Kshetram, also were mesmerised by the recitation. The Krishnashtami celebrations are also going to begin from Monday at the Iskcon temple.
Naresh Kumar Bhavaraju, manager of Datta Mukthi Kshetram, said that it was commendable for children born and brought up in USA to learn Bhagavad Gita slokas.
Both Sindhu and Shruti completed their 7 and 3 Grades respectively from California, USA. Their parents Anand Murthy and Vijayalakshmi hailed from Rajamahendravaram and Secunderabad. Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda Swamiji blessed the children when they were born and named them. Both of them participated in 24-hour Hanuman Chalisa chanting event conducted in Texas (USA) which was a Guinness World Record.
With this motivation they memorised all 700 slokas of Bhagavad Gita. On July16 this year, they chanted Sampoorna Gita Parayana, Gita Mahatyam, Gita Dhyanam, Gita Sara and Gita Aarti in four hours from memory in the presence of Sri Ganapathi Sachchidananda Swamiji in Mysuru. They are part of Tataji Sena (a group formed by the seer for children).
