Hindus say Bon Jovi echos Bhagavad-Gita tenets

For immediate release

Hindus say Bon Jovi echoed Bhagavad-Gita tenets by free Madrid concert

Commending American rock star Jon Bon Jovi, 51, for waiving fee for his upcoming concert in Madrid (Spain), Hindus argue that he is following “Bhagavad-Gita principles”.

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed, in a statement in Nevada (USA) today, pointed out that Bon Jovi’s selfless act to waive concert fee in crisis-hit Spain was directly out of ancient Hindu scripture Bhagavad-Gita (Song of the Lord), which said: “Act selflessly, without any thought of personal profit.”

Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, urged other popular singers/groups like Madonna, U2, AC/DC, Bruce Springsteen, Britney Spears, Beyonce Knowles, Jay-Z, Lady Gaga, Elton John, etc., also to deliver some free concerts in countries hit by economic crisis and developing nations.

Rajan Zed further said that Bhagavad-Gita clearly stated: “Strive constantly to serve the welfare of the world; by devotion to selfless one attains the supreme goal of life. Do your work with the welfare of others always in mind.” Such free concerts would be a step in the right direction in their divine journeys, Zed added.
