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.
The importance of a teacher or a guru or mentor should never be undermined in this life, according to The Bhagavad Gita.
We need to learn the truth of life and be guided by our mentor at every stage of our life. Choose a knowledgeable mentor. Be humble to him, but ask him any question that may arise in your mind during the journey of your life. Clear all your doubts. The self realized soul (your guru), who has experienced the truth will impart all knowledge to you.
"When you have learnt the truth or known life in the real sense, you will see that all living beings are but a part of Me (an Ansh, maybe a drop in the ocean). In fact I am the 'whole' of the living souls. When you have acquired such knowledge of 'self', you will find that neither any worldly difficulty nor any challenge can deter you from your mission; no pursuit of futile material pleasures will tempt you away from your path of righteousness," said the Lord.
All the sins stand burnt away by the purging fire of the transcendental knowledge, according to Lord Krishna.
Lord the Almighty, God is always present everywhere. Such an awareness keeps us blessed, and also keeps us motivated.
Whenever righteousness is overpowered by the evil, Lord manifests in bodily form. The world is a battleground where Evil and Good are always fighting each other. They are invariably on a warpath. It's only at a time when righteousness diminishes though never extinct, Lord appears to correct the balance. Undoubtedly the birth and activities of the Lord are divine and beyond the compression of an ordinary human being. Just its awareness helps us to choose the path of righteousness and maintain our peace.
History tells us that whenever there is excess of anything, change emerges in the form of a revolution to bring back the balance.
We also find that with the passage of time and many generations the strong becomes weak and the weak becomes strong. This is true for families, communities, societies and even countries.
