This day is also famous as Mokshda Ekadashi. During the Mahabharat war between the Pandavas and Kauravas at Kurukshetra, Lord Shree Krishna offer Gita Gyan to the world and Arjun was just nimitta.

Gita taught Brahmana to do the tap and save culture, Kshatriya to save world, Vaishya to do business and save cow and Shudra to help in fluffing the above. Gita teaches student to get the Vidhya with curiosity, young to take risk and work for Lord, older to use their experience for society, sanyasi to become sanyasi from inside and sacrifice. Gita teaches to women that, lady is symbol of Laxmi or glory so speech must be lovely and inspirational, lady is born for the great work that must be remembered, advisory to man, as lady is mother so naturally she is greater than man but if lady try to become like man then it is ultimately degrading their self.
