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 said, ” The person whose emotions are fully controlled by wisdom and science, who has conquered his senses and for whom dust, stone or gold are all alike; it is said that such a seeker, a yogi has discovered his self. In other words, he has realised God.”
” He is the greatest among human beings. He is unselfish and interested in the good of everyone. He does not distinguish between a friend and a foe. He treats alike the virtuous and the sinners.”
Such a person will not have any prejudice against anyone. He will have an open mind and will listen to people to understand and not only to reply them. He follows the principle: first understand and then be understood. He does not take anything for granted. Like a devoted scientist, he keeps on studying the cause and effect. He treats acquiring knowledge and achieving wisdom as the ultimate goal of life. He can never be stressful. He is happy and always at peace with himself.
“The person who does not brood over worldly pleasures; who shuts out all trivial thoughts; who fixes his gaze between the eyebrows of his forehead starts regulating his breath meditates with the objective of controlling his mind. He breaths in and out equally. Through meditation he is able to control his mind. He contemplates on My form, My being. He becomes free from all desires. He overpowers anger. All his fears vanish away. In fact, he achieves and experiences true freedom,” thus explained the Lord to Arjuna.
Meditation helps an individual to remain self aware at all times. He/she doesn’t loose track of direction. The life’s big picture, the significance and their goals keep such people motivated. Distractions of any kind do not disturb their vision. They remain wedded to the performance of their duty. Their positive attitude helps them to become stable minded. Truly, they pursue their noble goals and remaining satisfied with life, they happily go through the journey of this life.
