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: Thought 4 The Day.
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.
Thought 4 The Day (14.09.2017)
Right knowledge of self and the relationship with the Lord Almighty creates within the seeker that fire which can burn away the darkness of doubt, lack of faith and ignorance. The situations happen unexpectedly. There is little control an individual can have over what might happen. But how you react to these situations and/or circumstances is an area where you can exercise your control. Partly it depends on your attitude and partly on the knowledge that you may have acquired. Your attitude is formed over the years due to various influences. You acquire knowledge from your Guru or mentor or with your own efforts. Knowledge which is not followed by appropriate action loses its significance or even power. One should never allow that to happen.
We find from The Bhagavad Gita that whatever Lord Krishna explains to Arjuna eventually leads to one principle of life; follow the path of your duty selflessly under all circumstances.
Thought 4 The Day (07.09.2017)
Knowledge is covered by its adversary which is desire. Desire spreads like fire if not kept under control. Senses, mind and intellect are places of its sojourn. Often the desire with its evil designs deludes the soul. It is, therefore, necessary to curb it and keep it restrained.
Senses are greater than the body; mind can be stronger than the senses; intellect is more powerful than the mind and what is higher than the intellect is ones soul. Knowing this, one must kill the enemy in the garb of desire.
