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.
Arjuna said, "Yoga which you have defined, as maintaining the steady state of the mind amidst diverse situations, due to the fickle nature of the mind, is very difficult to achieve.”
"Mind is extremely capricious and obstinate. Therefore I consider controlling the mind is as difficult as stopping the wind.”
Lord Almighty said; “There is no doubt that the mind is extremely fickle and difficult to control, but with continuous practice of unattachment and constant efforts, it can come under control.”
“For the person who is unable to control his mind, yoga is unachievable, but the person who has controlled his mind, can attain yoga easily. This is my considered opinion.”
Making decisions under challenging circumstances is extremely difficult but critical. Unless we keep our mind in control, it is very difficult not to be led in negative emotions which poorly reflect in our decisions. Procrastination is the worst enemy of someone who wants to progress. If the mind is not stable and resolute, procrastination is likely to overpower. But with continuous practice, one can achieve the stability of mind which is one of the most desirable assets in the management principles.
Thought4The Day (24.09.2017)
“The yoga, which eradicates unhappiness altogether can be achieved only by someone who eats what is necessary and sleeps or keeps awake only as required by the body, He carries out only such actions as his duty demands.”
“When the mind, which is in complete control stabilises in the meditation of the Alminghty, when there remains no animal desire to enjoy wordly objects, it is said, that is the status of the person who becomes a yogi and is unaffected by all wordly affairs.”
“Just as in a place, where there is a lamp that does not flicker, because there is no wind that can disturb the placidness of the flame, the same simile applies to a yogi engaged in meditation about the Almighty. His concentration is never affected. His peace is never disturbed."
When we look at life we find the principle true and relevant to a aspects of life. Now, what is the principle, and how does it help?
The principle of putting your mind and soul in what you are doing. In way we start enjoying what we do. Needless to say that productivity is improved and it brings satisfaction.
