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

There are innumerable benefits of reading The Bhagavad Gita daily. The most significant of these is that it inspires us to love our jobs. We get committed to performance of our duty.
Today, let’s recall what great people throughout the world have said about The Bhagavad Gita, and also how the thoughts propounded in the great book of knowledge are reflected in what these great men say and/or do:
Albert Einstein: “When I read the Bhagavad Gita and reflect about how Good created this universe everything else seems so superfluous.”
Aldous Huxley: ” The Bhagavad Gita is the most systematic statement of spiritual evolution of endowing value to mankind…” Comments of others as below:
Benefits of reading The Bhagavad Gita Yesterday, I had talked about the first two benefits: that it enhances courage and that we are inspired to pursue knowledge. Now, further:
3. Listening Skills. The entire dialogue between the Lord Almighty and Arjuna makes us understand the importance of listening skills. Most people,today, listen to reply. In the process the moment we find that we strongly differ from what the speaker has said, we stop listening and further. We wait for him/her to stop so that we can express ourselves and prove how wrong they are and how right is the opinion we hold. We find from the great book of knowledge that Arjuna is ignorant of many things which are explained to him. But he carefully listens and then asks such questions which are most relevant for properly understanding what has been said. Many management Gurus rightly say that importance of listening cannot be exaggerated.
2. Emotional Intelligence. The reading helps develop our emotional intelligence. In the beginning of the book, we find that Arjuna is very in this vital human quality. That’s why he tells Lord Krishna that he will not fight. But as the dialogue proceeds, we find Arjuna’s emotional intelligence develop. (to be continued)
