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. 5, 2017)
“The four orders of society (viz. the Brahmana, the Kshatriya, the Vaishya and the Shudra) were created by Me classifying them according to the mode of Prakriti predominant in each and assigning corresponding duties to them; yet the creator Me, the Almighty remain a non-doer.” This is how Krishna explained the order of the society to Arjuna.
Indeed, the society needs all these four classes of people for proper functioning of the civil order. Unfortunately, over a period of time lower class/classes were looked down upon and our society was inflicted with the malady of untouchability. In fact, everything in this world keeps on changing. Any necessary principle when misdirected due to any reason can take form of an abominable disease, and so did this one in our country.
Noted British novelist named these four categories of people as Alpha, Beta, Gamma and Delta in his famous book, ‘The Brave New World’. In a bid to create an ideal society, humans are ‘manufactured’ in factories and conditioned as per requirement which again is shown as a curse to humanity.
We need to respect all human beings as they are, and that’s the message of The Bhagavad Gita.
Thought4TheDay (Nov. 4, 2017)
While explaining the qualities of a stable minded person, Krishna emphasises one quality which, I think, has assumed more importance today than at any other time due to so many means of distractions and that is:
‘Vayarth ki cheshta ka abhaav’ or no indulgence in futile efforts; that’s another extremely important lesson that we learn by the study of The Bhagavad Gita. The meaning or the significance of life and how to live it in the book of knowledge leaves no scope for engaging oneself into wasteful activities. We all know it well. We all realise it even better. Yet if we scrutinise any of our day, we may find that some of our time does get wasted with the avoidable and unnecessary activities. While it’s important to make a ‘to do’ list everyday, it is even more important to make ‘not to do’ a list also. And, everyday!
Read The Bhagavad Gita. Know the significance of your live. Be happy and spread happiness.
