The Bhagavad Gita Talks 29

Posted on

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. 3, 2017)

We, humans suffer from many inherent fears. Our education and upbringing help us to conquer some, most or all these fears. But do they? Or at times, do they add to these fears? Unfounded as these could be, at times, we live with them throughout our lives. ‘Loag Kaya Kahen ge?’ The question prevents us from doing many things that we may.

These form the root cause of all negativity in our lives. Reading The Bhagavad Gita gives us one strong message. The message is that fear of criticism or failure should never deter us from performance of our duty.

At the battlefield, Arjuna tells Krishna that he would not fight and be responsible for the killing of his close relatives. But he also tells him that he does not know whether he would win or face a defeat. Uncertainty breeds fear of failure. Fear discourages any new enterprise. There is nothing worthwhile to achieve without any risk. Taking no risk is the biggest risk of life.

Thought 4TheDay (Nov. 2, 2017)

It’s a myth that The Bhagavad Gita doesn’t encourage one to have goals. Unless you have specific, measurable and clear goals, how will you know what you must do at any particular time?

Your goals determine the direction of your activities. These will help specifying your desired actions. Strategy to achieve your goals will enable you to make decisions about your actions. Movement towards your targets for achieving these goals is, in fact, journey of your life.

Your employer, or if you are a business owner, the needs of your business define your responsibilities. So also, your family friends and other connections. They all play their respective roles during the course of your journey.

Your conduct, interaction with others, hard work and ability to persevere cumulatively determine your rewards.

Please share this post with your friends for greater awareness, should you like it. Thanks.
