The Bhagavad Gita Talks 7



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 (19.09.2017) 
Through the meditative technique which is described as follows, the practitioner can focus his attention and control his mind. He should fix mindfulness by thinking and visualising his gaze in the middle of eyes on his forehead. 


This will enable him to be rid of thinking of worldly objects. So, focusing mind in the middle of forehead, practitioner has to observe his breathing in and breathing out. The process of inhaling and exhaling of breath, then, needs to be equated. It means the same measure of breath should be inhaled and exhaled in equal duration. When it is achieved, the practitioner should meditate on God the Almighty, the all pervading being. Eventually, he develops his ability to perceive oneness with The Lord. 

In this manner, the selfless person will be able to realise that there is nothings more important than his presence in Lord the Almighty and presence of the Lord in him. There remains nothing for him which is more precious when compared to his experience. With this practice, he achieves highest form of peace, which is a far cry for humans attached and engaged in the worldly affairs, trying to fulfil their wishes and desires, which are all so short lived.

Thought4TheDay (18.09.2017) 
It is recommended that some time one must spend alone during the day. These moments need to be spent on contemplating one's own place or status in reference to life's vision one has defined and the mission and the goals set. 

Lord Krishna says, "The person who decisively listens to his soul and not his senses, who comforts with not what he has achieved in respect of material possessions, but who discovers joy in the good deeds carried out as devotion towards 'ME' for the good of the society is happy and truly wise. 

The person who finds his happiness only in his own atma (soul) and dwells in his atma, guided by his atma can alone experience oneness with 'ME' the all pervading, all powerful Almighty Lord. With such matchless position, he attains peace and tranquility."

The Bhagavad Gita Talks 6

Thought4TheDay (16.09.2017)

Lord Krishnaexplained to Arjuna in response to his question whether renunciation of work is better or working with devotion is superior.

According to Lord Krishna Karamsanyas yoga, in other words yoga of renunciation of work is difficult for human beings.
It is difficult to eradicate ego from whatever efforts one makes. It is difficult to carry out .your duty believing at the same time that you are not the doer.

Your work, in any case, you have to do and you must do it to the best of your ability.

As compared to renunciation of work, carrying out your duty with devotion is easier. Here, you are not expecting any personal reward or fruit of the efforts. You are not expecting any profit. You are not acting because of any selfish motive. You are dedicating your efforts to 'ME' said the Lord. In fact, you are dedicating your efforts to the humanity. Because as I said earlier all beings, living beings are parts of 'Mine'. So, any efforts.of yours if these are bringing good to the society; these are in reality serving 'ME'.

Therefore, for us the common people, doing our work without selfish motive, or for the good of society or Karmayoga is a path we need to follow.

Thought4TheDay (05.09.2017)





Actions are the results of the 3 human 'gunas' or tendencies and their interaction in the human mind. These three attributes are: Satva, Rajas and Tamas. At different times one or the other dominates overpowering the remaining two. Each of these are responsible for particular activity or inactivity.
Satva, when in power, motivates the individual to engage in spirituality, charitable activities, gratitude, compassion, devotion to God etc.

Likewise, when 'Rajas' is prominent, the person becomes engaged in physical endeavours. Material desires take charge of him. At such moments, Satva tendencies are subdued. Such times are replete with human emotions. Happiness, anguish, sufferings, exhilarations etc. dominate life.

But when 'Tamas' dominates, the person becomes victim of laziness, indolence, dunes of mind, feeling of helplessness, negativity, pessimism etc.
