MotelGita Initiative

The MotelGita program works with moteliers like you to place Bhagavad Gitas in hotel and motels rooms across the United States. Our goal is to place more than 1 million Gitas in rooms across the United States. Members of our team have worked with single property owners to franchisees with multiple locations. Our seasoned team is available to help you through every step of the process. We have a diverse support team that works with you “shoulder to shoulder” from the time the order is placed until the books have arrived at your property.

The Bhagavad Gita (The Song of God) was spoken by Sri Krishna to his friend Arjuna on the Battlefield of Kurukestra (India) over 5,000 years ago. Their discourse – one of the greatest philosophical and religious dialogues known to man – took place just before the onset of war, a great fratricidal conflict between the sons of Dhrtarasta and on the opposing side their cousins the Pandavas, the sons of Pandu. The ensuing conversation and teachings of Sri Krishna have provided the most profound and influential spiritual teachings of all time. These potent spiritual teachings are as relevant today as they were the day they were spoken. Share this timeless wisdom with your guests!

MotelGita initiative is a regular participant in Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA) conferences promoting distribution of Bhagvad Gita in Hotels & Motels throughout the world. View our participation and support from Hotel owners.

MotelGita and Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA)

Asian-Indians own almost 65% of the total motels available in the United States, primarily Gujarati owners. Acutely aware of the Gita and its importance, they are glad to get the opportunity to spread the wisdom of Lord Krishna throughout the country. One way the MotelGita team reaches out to motel and hotel owners is by attending regional and national conventions. One such organization is the Asian American Hotel Owners Association (AAHOA) that holds annual conferences.

AAHOA is the largest hotel owners association in the nation. The 19,500+ AAHOA Members own almost one in every two hotels in the United States. With billions of dollars in property assets and hundreds of thousands of employees, AAHOA Members are core economic contributors in virtually every community. AAHOA is a proud defender of free enterprise and the foremost current-day example of realizing the American Dream.

Team MotelGita is very grateful to AAHOA for providing us a platform to canvass our cause.

Since 2009, AAHOA has given us a booth in all the Annual conventions and various regional conventions. We are forever grateful to AAHOA and its team for believing in this wonderful cause and providing us the much needed support.

Some Of Our Testimonials

This is very interesting. I curiously picked up this new book lying besides the bible and I found it very nice. It has so much depth. I have taken a copy along with me and will certainly read everything. It has opened a new horizon, hitherto unexplored by me.

Andrew Spencer

Guest at Howard Johnson, Houston

I often see guests coming in for breakfast with Bhagavad-gita in hand and reading it while they are in the lobby or in the reception room. It is satisfying to know that I have contributed in spreading this knowledge.

Nilesh P

Manager, Super 8, Sacramento

One of our guest, a middle age lady, approached me at the reception counter and asked me if she could take the Bhagavad-gita along with her. She said that she picked up this book (Bhagavad-gita) just out of curiousity as she was not able to sleep at night. After reading it she found it so profound that she could just not put it down. I gladly allowed her to take the Bhagavad-gita along.

Dilip Patel

Manager, See Breeze, Pacifica, CA

People here are very inquisitive and would always like to try new and different things. Hence, I kept Bhagavad-gita at both my motels. I see that the guests like it too.

B Patel

Motel Owner, San Francisco, CA

The Bhagavad-gita is a profound literature. I thank the motel authorities who allowed me this opportunity. It has helped me to understand who am I and what is this life about. Life is much happier and less stressful. I still cant believe my luck. Thank you!

Jon Rodriguez

Guest at Best Western, Memphis

I have developed respect for the Hindu culture now that I have read and understood a little about it.

Vivian Browne

Guest at Rodeway Inn at Monrovia, CA

I got my first Gita in a hotel room and ever since I read the first verse my life has been ever increasingly in Krsna Consciousness. Life is a journey back to Krsna. Peace. . .
