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. 25, 2017)
Lord Krishna refers to many gods who are worshiped by people for their different wishes or goals. He further says that the devotee who worship concentrating on what they want achieve the same by the grace of the god they worship. The question of many gods has been creating many doubts in the minds of many. However, these doubts are highly misplaced and betray gross ignorance. As has been repeated in The Bhagavad Gita, Lord Almighty is omnipresent. He is present everywhere and in everyone. Thus His presence empowers gods who are also His creations. In Hindu traditions if an individual wants wealth, he worships Goddess Lakshmi. If he wants power, he would invoke the grace of Goddess Durga. Likewise for the other human desires.
Popular authors and philosophers the world over profess that you can achieve anything that you may strongly desire. In fact the strength of these desires make us take such actions consistently that the desired objectives are achieved. When we invoke the benevolence of celestial forces our efforts are further strengthened. We achieve wealth, power, reputation or knowledge with our sweat and perseverance for which we receive power through our worship.

In a way The Bhagavad Gita represents the dictum, ‘Faith Conquers All’. But if we look around in the world today, we observe that faith and trust have become rare commodities. In fact, we observe that it is not for no reason that the situation is what it is.
Can students have faith in the education system? Can they trust teachers? Can bankers trust the borrowers? Conversely, can entrepreneurs trust that the bankers will fund the valid enterprise purely on merits without some personal interest? People have lost faith in their chosen representatives. Are they to be blamed for that?
Are doctors pursing ‘the noble profession’ and living up to the trust that patients are compelled to have in their ‘nobility’? And what about hospitals? And what about their fat bills?
