It is said that if you read or listen to Bhagavat Gita then all your sins will be removed. I also believe this. But like to know, how do they remove the sins?

  • Related: Is there any specific deity who cuts sins?. Gita is for liberation. Hence, like double edged sword, it will cut sins and virtues both!

  • Reading Holy texts do remove sins as said in scriptures themselves. Those who are not qualified to read can hear the recitals and benefit similarly. I am not sure though how "How" in ur question can be answered.

Krishna says in Gita 18.70-71 (Swami Nikhilananda translator):

And he who will study this sacred dialogue of ours--by him shall I have been worshiped through knowledge as a sacrifice; such is My judgement.

And the man who hears this [Bhagavad Gita], full of faith and free from malice--even he, liberated from sin, shall attain the happy regions [lokas] of the righteous.

The 'how' does it removes sins - the grace of God as Krishna says so.
