The Bhagavad Gita Talks 23

The Bhagavad Gita is the ultimate book of knowledge and is duly recognized as such throughout the world. Its wisdom transcends the limits of time and space. I publish daily one message from the book which can be related to our daily life titled: Thought4TheDay
These are widely read and highly appreciated by my connections on LinkedIn, friends on Facebook and followers on twitter totally about 27000 people. As recommended by some friends, I am posting the same here. You may ask questions and/or post your comments which be appreciated. Hope you will find the initiative very rewarding.
Thought4TheDay (21.10.2017)
Lord Almighty said,”I am present in all living beings, with uniform existence. No one is dear to me more than anyone else, nor do I hate anyone. But those who worship Me with love and devotion; they reside in Me and I live in their hearts.”
“Even if a dire sinner worships me sincerely, he is worthy of being known as a sage. I consider him as a decisive person, who has carefully realised that there is nothing as good as the worship of the Almighty.”
Again and again the Lord has repeated that He is present in everyone. So, what is the definition of worship? What does He mean when He says….”even if a dire sinner worships Almighty?” In fact, it is the realisation that working in the interest of humanity is the most significant devotion, one can offer. So, any endeavour dedicated to the service of humanity is nothing short of worship to the Lord Almighty. Surely, this message would give a direction to everyone about where to go and how to live?

Arjuna asks Lord Krishna, “What are the qualities of a person who becomes ‘sthirbudhi’ who is steady and resolute? How does he speak? How does he sit? How does he walk?”
Lord Krishna: “Arjuna, when a person renounces all his desires;when he finds peace and solace in his own soul and remains satisfied; he is known to have acquired ‘sthirbudhi’. He becomes steady and resolute.”
“When a person is not disturbed by the onslaught of sorrow; when he no longer keenly desires tempting pleasures and when he has conquered attachment, fear and anger, he is known to have secured ‘sthirbudhi’.”
In the highly competitive, fast paced and disruptive world today, one needs ‘sthirbudhi’ more than ever before to be at peace and maintain work life balance in life. Please comment, add and share with friends.
