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.
There are many benefits that we can draw from reading The Bhagavad Gita daily. On one side it grants us knowledge, so very important to live life significantly, on the other, we become capable to face ups and downs of life. To my mind, the following benefits are very significant for human personality.
- The reading develops courage. In the first chapter, we find that Arjuna is tormented with grief and feels so weak that he cannot even hold his bow and arrow. In life, whenever one faces such highly emotional situations, unless you are in control, you tend to become weak. But Lord Krishna helps Arjuna to control his emotions and not loose his valour for which he is known. Since the Lord Almighty is always with us, we must never loose our courage and deal with the difficulties upfront.
- Importance of pursuit of knowledge for all human beings is both the explicit and implicit message of the great book of knowledge. We never know enough. Anyone who looses quest for knowledge, in fact, looses interest in life. It becomes a burden, whereas, actually it’s a unique gift. (to be continued)
Lord Krishna said, “The person who remembers Me even at the time of his life and leaves the body while remembering Me, in fact, attains Me undoubtedly”.
“At the end of the human life, whichever aspect is remembered by the dying man, he assumes the same form in the next birth. The simple reason for this is that he remained with that particular aspect throughout his life”.
Performance of one’s duty without selfish motive constitutes the work which is dedicated to the Lord Almighty. Because there is no selfish motive; such actions contribute to the development of society. It’s for the benefit and progress of humanity.
Any ethical enterprise which meets the human needs and helps the human development or the society at large is recommended. Greed and lust for power should not be allowed to replace the genuine effort for growth. These are not even good even for the entrepreneur as greed has no limits and lust for power is never satisfied. Both lead to disastrous results.
