श्रीमद्भगवद्गीता तथा दुर्गा सप्तशती हमारे पाठ ग्रंथ हैं अर्थात् घर घर में इनके पाठ का चलन है जो हमारी संस्कृति का अभिन्न अंग है। गीता के सारे अध्याय आप यहाँ देख व सुन सकते हैं। पाठ किया है पूज्य पिताजी प्रो. डॉ बलराम सदाशिव अग्निहोत्री ने। तब वह 86 वर्ष की आयु के थे। उन्हे पूरी गीता करीब करीब कंठस्थ थी और हम बच्चों को भी वही संस्कार दिया। उनकी बाबत जानकारी के लिये देख सकते हैं उनका ब्लॉग.

Geeta Recitals by Dr. Balram S. Agnihotri -- गीता पाठ
Intro --
SrimadBhagavGeeta and Durga Saptashati are called PATH GRANTH which means that they are to be recited as a daily rite. Thousands of Indian households have this tradition.
My father Dr. Balram Sadashiv Agnihotri, Prof of Sanskrit and Philosophy guided research students for M. Phil and Ph. D. at Mithila Research Institute, Darbhanga, Bihar. He was a great student of Geeta and made it an every-evening habit for us children to sit with him for Geeta recital. That is how we all learnt Geeta by heart. Much later, when he was 86, I was able to get complete recording of Bhagvadgeeta done by him. Even at that age he was able to record all the 18 chapters in 1 sitting.
Around same time he managed to finish writing his book BuddhiYog, which he was planning for years. It is said in Geeta – “ ददामि बुद्धियोगं तं येन मामुपयांति ते -- I give good wisdom to people with which they can reach me” To whom does God give the Wisdom and how do we go about getting His Blessings? My father has tried to explain it in his book BuddhiYog.
I have been able to put his Geeta recitals on YouTube. Here are the links.

I deeply appreciate it.

I have translated Geeta in Maithili in prose.
