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 knowledgeable and the wise understands that our significance in this life is best served if we serve the Almighty, the Super soul incorporating the entire humanity selflessly. This service is the greatest form of worship. No rituals are required for the service of mankind. All that is needed is performance of one's duty which is dedicated to the upliftment of those who are suffering and who need help. Some people, who strive to work hard to get the rewards of their efforts in achieving what they want in the form of worldly possessions, they get them. But these are transient, perishable, because all these are left behind when we depart and leave this body.
The wise does not get attached. All achievement are made for the progress of society. There is no doubt that nothing worthwhile is achieved without contributions from the other members of the society.
The worst is suffered by the person of tamasik nature, when the person hates to work. Laziness, procrastination and indecision leading to inaction produce guilt in the mind and the concerned one suffers.
" Duty first, always in mind, greater joy you will never find."
Lord Krishna says, "Hidden amidst My yoga maya (illusion), I am not visible to everyone. Therefore, ordinary people are not in a position to realise My presence everywhere. I am birth less and immortal unlike common human beings". "Whoever has lived and whatever has happened in the past, I know it all. I know about the present and the future. But whoever is not My true devotee will never understand Me, realise Me".
"Born out of desire and envy, people get pleasure or pain. These are the ones who are enamoured by My maya and remain in their own ignorant world. They are not the seekers of truth. They remain devoid of knowledge".
Quest for knowledge is the first step towards self realisation. Who am I? What am I doing? what is my significance? What is the purpose of my life? When you contemplate on these pertinent perennial questions, your anxiety, worry or stress of any kind is bound to vanish. You start understanding life. You realise that life does not offer poetic justice. You start accepting life as it is and become a person at peace with self.
