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.

The ignorant individual is full of doubts. Having no faith, he always remains below sword of fear. Fear also leads to indecision which acts as a handicap in performance. The person who pursues material objects becomes a victim of multifaceted fear. Whether he will achieve the object that he desired or not disturbs him all the time. Ignorance and peace and he remains under stress.
But according to Lord Krishna the individual who has achieved the transcendental knowledge rises all the materialistic desires. It is doubts are demolished completely.
Said Lord Krishna, Therefore, the doubts which have come to your mind out of ignorance must be killed with the sword of knowledge. These armed with confidence and knowledge stand up and fight the battle.
One should not be swayed away by the feelings of attraction or repulsion. These emotions are rooted in all sense objects. When these are not controlled, these emotions act as enemies and dont allow the individual to grow. They act as hurdles in the path of mans redemption.
One should never breed a longing for doing someone elses job because it is more likeable. Your own work may not have glamour or merit or status, yet it is the best job for you. Performing your own duty well brings you blessings and peace and must be appreciated as such. Wanting to be someone else is unbecoming and fraught with fear.
