Magazine

Prem Geet is a spiritual magazine published quarterly by Gita Art Publication Welfare Trust in Urdu Language. Brahma-vidya (Supreme Knowledge) is expounded and expressed in the religious Scriptures to impart us peace and liberation from this world. In this age of Kaliyug, people have become so engrossed in the mundane affairs that it has become difficult for them to read and reflect upon the spiritual effulgence enshrined in the broad Vedic scripture. Additionally, there exists a language barrier which precludes an ordinary person to easily comprehend the language of Lord and demi gods in Sanskrit. Hence, majority has deprived them of the spiritual wisdom and suffers material existence birth after birth due to ignorance. Though material wealth and prosperity has escalated but unfortunately devotion for Supreme Godhead has diminished due to our unfamiliarity with the religion. Prem Geet is a spiritual anthology meant to drive away those clouds of ignorance and re-establishes our relationship of eternal love with Supreme Godhead. Thirst for love is an eternal aspiration in a man's heart and the Prem Geet strives to bestow on us the love for God.
