The Bhagavad Gita is the beautiful story of a battle. The Lord Krishna says: "I am God. You have to listen to me. The battle will take place whether you win or lose, whether you die or live. Your only choice is to win or lose consciously. It is not a battle of your death. It is a battle of your inner life. If your side wins all of you are dead. If you surrender to me, all will be well. I will come and be with you at moments of crisis, giving you the right advice."
Krishna was an incarnation of Vishnu. He was divine. He was not a dictator. He was loving. He wanted to help Arjuna take his destiny in his own hands.
In today’s modern time we all have to do things that we don’t like to do like working long hours. We have to tolerate office politics and needless people who are always happy to pass on tasks and are never at work. You have to take the call in all these matters. Giving up is not an option. We must carry on and do the work we were trained to do and do it faithfully. We must do it with great enthusiasm and maintain our enthusiasm. If you get tired, take time out and re-charge. There is no fixed schedule. Just get back to your job.
Do not be a cynic and think that you will not gain from your job. One day you will gain from all your efforts. It may not be money! It may be a promotion. It may be a grateful son or daughter. There are many other gains. You will see good things growing from your efforts. Do your work to the best of your abilities, faithfully.
One of the teachings of the Bhagavad Gita by Lord Krishna is that pursuit of the mystical leads one to detachment. Krishna was also a warrior. He embodied the best of both worlds. He was wise and deep. But at the same time he was warm and compassionate. He was a lover of the people. You and I have to have a growth mindset. We work hard to get where we want to be but should not forget to enjoy the success.
I see many people at the office who rattle on about their family life and social life. They just want to be seen. They want other people to talk about how they have traveled, done their business, met new people and so on.
Don’t waste your time on such people. No one will care or remember. Make your time count. Make your money count. Make your achievements count. But also make your relationships count. Heart is in the center. A balanced life: hard work, travel, family, community. Make every aspect count.
Do not make the mistake of working hard only to quit when you get your promotion. Hold on. Use your new responsibility to get better at your job. It is what you do well that works out for you. What is important in the matter is not the fact that your friend has a better job than you. The fact is that he or she still depends on you. This is a good thing. They will be supportive of you in all ways. This is a good relationship. This is a good bank balance. It is not your goal. It is transitory. It is like seeds dropped in the hot sun. They do not die. They just change variety. Except for a few, they change into something else. A few should not be seen as an exception. They are the strongest and cleverest, not necessarily the wealthiest, who make the greatest inroads into the world. Use this opportunity to build your own business and learn how to promote your company and take it places. Not all your efforts will be successful. That is the way it is. But it will always be better to be a failure as a boy than as a bureaucrat.
There is a fine balance between being too anxious and being too relaxed. If you are too anxious, you cannot be effective. If you are too relaxed, you waste your time and your life. Look at Steve Jobs. He was too anxious. He changed the world. He was too critical. He crushed his own workers. He was a tough and a cruel boss. That was the cost of being so successful. Thomas Edison took ten thousand attempts. That is what it means to be really good.
To rise and not crush others, to be intensely successful and yet not be cynical or brutal, that is the power of the great human soul , a human soul that has more power then the world, a soul that is beyond our comprehension, a great soul. It is that great soul who showed the world the way. It is our great responsibility to follow that great soul. He is our guide to the path of wealth, success, fulfilment and happiness. He is not just the Hindu god, Lord Krishna. He is also our own Lord Krishna. It is we who have to make the choice.
We have to realise our potentials in the world. We are going to do this anyway. All we have to do is make the best of it. We have to go ahead with our ambitions. We have to learn to enjoy the good things in life and think less of the bad ones. The bad ones are just stepping stones but that does not mean we want to see them as stepping stones. That is the key. You will always find them as stepping stones. Do not let them be stepping stones. Crush them. We have to build that pressure.
People say the Bhagavad Gita is meant to be a prayer. What prayer? The Bhagavad Gita is not a prayer. It is a battle, one against an enemy. The enemy is the ego and the ignorance. The battle is one against ignorance and the ego. The Bhagavad Gita is not a prayer. It is a war cry, a battle cry. It is a riotous battle. It is a fight. It is a fiesta. It is a celebration of all the hopes and dreams of all mankind. It is a pep talk. It is a roar. It is a call to all those in the battle field. It is a call to the world. It is a call to the life everlasting, a call to the eternal life. It is not a call to the religion. It is a call to humanity. It is a call beyond religion. It is a call for life. It is a call to the eternal life. It is a direct call to the eternal existence. .
