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 person whose likes and dislikes are replaced with wisdom and science, whose intentions are beyond any blemishes, who has thoroughly conquered his senses, and for whom dust, stone and gold are all alike; it is said such a yogi (ascetic) is complete and is on the right path or in other words, he has realized God. He is the purest and most worthy among human beings. He is unselfish and interested in the good of everyone. He does not distinguish between friend and foe. He treats alike, the virtous and the sinners.
The person who keeps complete control over his body including his senses and his mind, he who does not live on vain hopes and is free from greed is a yogi. He should often seek a solitary place and meditate continuously with his devoted mind about the marvels of the Almighty.
If we spend sometime daily on contemplating what has been said above life would peaceful and stress free.
I request all friends to share these words of Lord Krishna for benefit of others.
Thought4TheDay (22. 09.2017)
“The person who has controlled his mind, and gets endowed with the purity of thoughts, his ‘atma’ (soul) is no less than Almighty, as he is the embodiment of atma in all beings; Such a karamyogi carries on performing his duties without attachment”
“The man of wisdom, Sankhyayogi; when he touches or when he smells; when he speaks or he listens; when he eats or walks or sleeps or breathes; when he relinquishes or receives, and even when he closes his eyes or opens them, when he walks or sits, considers that all his senses carry on with their functions. He thinks that he, in fact, is not doing anything whatsoever.”
Thus the person who has dedicated all his actions to the Almighty (society, or humanity at large) gets rid of attachments of all kinds and performs his duty peacefully. He is like a lotus flower in muddy waters and doesn’t get affected by sins of any kind. When the focus is just on doing what you are doing, the performance would be at par excellence,undoubtedly.
