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.
The core message of The Bhagavad Gita is that everyone should perform his/her duty to the best of ability. The singular dictum can regulate the life of the human being if the meaning of duty is properly understood.
The first duty of the individual is to his own self. He/she must ensure and take all possible steps to maintain good mental and physical health. It is not being selfish or self-centred. It’s developing ability to work in the service of the Lord Almighty. One has to contribute to the progress and growth of humanity as these efforts as to be construed as the true worship.
The next duty of the individuals is to work and establish their loyalty to the employer if you are working for someone. But if you are an entrepreneur, it’s your duty to do your best for the wellbeing and progress of your enterprise and the people who man your establishment.
It’s your duty to look after your family, your parents, spouse and children. All your work need to conform to the needs of the nation, state and community to which you belong.
Lord Krishna said, “Arjuna, whenever religion suffers a setback and sins excel, I assume the form of a living being and appear before mankind.”
“I appear from time to time, for the help and progress of the virtuous and deserving people, and for the destruction of the wicked and sinners. Objective is to safeguard religion and righteousness.”
“My birth and my deeds are divine, pure and transcendental. The person who understands and realises this truth does not take birth after death. Instead, he assumes My form and becomes a part of Me.” History testifies that the pendulum oscillates between the good and the evil. But there is no specific rhythm. Be a witness to whatever is happening around. Expect the unexpected and remain calm and composed. It’s possible when we perform our duty stretching ourselves and covering an extra mile for the growth and progress of humanity.
