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.
Lord Krishna says, “Arjuna, I am the pure smell of the earth, the heat and energy of fire, life in all living beings, and the devotion and penance of all seekers.” “I am the immortal seed of life on Earth. I am the wisdom of the wise and I am the divinity of the divine.”
“I am the power and the ability, without attachment or ego of the powerful. In all living beings, the presence of Kama or the sexual desire as laid down in the scriptures is also Me.”
The power and force behind all progress is the embodiment of the Lord Almighty. Therefore, excellence in any worldly activity is not possible without His grace. This knowledge inspires us to pursue perfection in performance of our duty, as the force behind the pursuit is also created by Him. All achievements, material or spiritual, realised in an effort for the upliftment of the society and growth of human values constitute our service and devotion to the Lord Almighty. Thus, there is no time to loose.
The Lord Almighty says, “Arjuna, once you understand the advice given to you by the wise, you will no longer get into the fits of attachment and emotions. You will first understand yourself and then observe My presence in everything, everywhere.” “Even if you are a sinner, you will cross over the sea of sins with the help of the boat created by knowledge and wisdom. All your sins will die out.”
“Because, Arjuna, just as the raging fire burns away the entire fuel, the fire of wisdom will burn away all your ill actions and the effects thereof.”
That is the importance and result of pursuit of knowledge and imbibing wisdom in your being. If we look back, each one of us may have been involved in such actions as our conscience would not have allowed, but emotions were too strong to be stopped by the conscience. So, what is the remedy? The strong desire for the pursuit of knowledge and perseverance to acquire it. Propagating knowledge is the best service to humanity, the Lord Almighty.
