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 (Nov.22, 2017)
Lord Krishna said, “Kuntiputra Arjuna, at the end of human life, whichever aspect is remembered by the dying man, he assumes the same in the next birth. The simple reason for this is that he remained influenced with the particular aspect throughout his life.”
Our future is determined by what we think and what we do from moment to moment throughout the life. Unless we make conscious effort consistently, it’s very difficult to bring in significant change of any kind. Thus, unless consistent efforts are made to bring about any change, it’s hardly possible to achieve the desired results. Your attitude to life, your habits and your actions can change only if these are pursued constantly. There is only one way to achieve success in life and it is the hard way. One has to be self aware at all times and try to bring about the desired change. There is no quick fix. Pursued wholeheartedly and patiently, indeed, anything can be achieved, but one has to be prepared to pay the price of perseverance.

Lord Krishna told Arjuna.
All living beings are born out of grains. Rains are the reason for the growth of grains. ‘Yajna’ brings about rains. And yajna’ is performed by the human beings as a part of their duty. The Vedas are responsible for all efforts towards duty. And the Almighty alone has created the Vedas (holy scriptures). This amply establishes that the omnipotent Almighty is always present amidst the ‘yajnas’.
The progress of society depends on, among other things, the performance of philanthropic people’s activities related to yajna. These are carried out as devotion to the Lord Almighty for the betterment of all His Creations.
Distribution of a part of an individuals wealth is a kind of yajna. The concept of C.S.R. or corporate social responsibility is also yajna. The real intent behind all NGOs is also the same. It is sad that such funds are sometimes misused for selfish motives or even worse some nefarious activities.
