The Bhagavad Gita, as we now have it from Vyasa's pen as reported by Sanjaya and as witnessed through his divine faculty of vision, comprises the expressed Slokas of the Lord and Arjuna, as also what was read by Sanjaya from the high impressions, on the etheric (akasic) tablet, of their inward interchange of question and response.
The age of the Gita, according to the Suddhas, may be said to he about a hundred and thirty centuries ago, as a result of the computation of the Kali epoch this has been referred to on page 150 of the English Summary of the Upodghata already published along with its text in Sanskrit. The discourse has also been referred to as administered on the seventh day of the bright fortnight of Kartika month, that the occasion was marked by the asterism 'Sravana', and that the day was Sunday, the time of the day being 'Srikala' or before 10 A.M. Thus, according to Them, "Gita-Jayanti" has to be celebrated on Kartika Suddha Saptami.
The present constitution of Suddha Dharma Mandalam at Badari was organized after a few centuries following the period of the Mahabharata War -it is said that this time corresponds to more than five-hundred Sankalpas of 24 years each-, on Vishaka Suddha Pournima day, so that the age of the present constitution of the Mandalam is now about more than twelve-thousand years.
Sri Yoga Devi as Durga as Invoked by Arjuna
After invoking Narayana and Nara the prime of Men, Sri Yoga Devi, Saraswati and Vyasa, proclaim Victory.
I ever bow unto Krishna and Arjuna incarnating from Narayana and Nara, who are engaged in the protection of the Worlds and that are the progenitors of Suddha ideation.
