ESSENCE OF LIFE – BHAGAVAD GITA
I am thankful to Mr. Gagan Guptaji who helped us to understand Gita. So, I would like to write my reflection by giving thanks to him….
गुरुर्ब्रह्मा ग्रुरुर्विष्णुः गुरुर्देवो महेश्वरः । गुरुः साक्षात् परं ब्रह्म तस्मै श्री गुरवे नमः ॥
It bring brightness in my eyes when I listen the word ‘BHAGAVAD GITA CLASS’.
I was reading this holy book and I have experience that everytime when I was searching for any solution I was reading any page and connect it with my problem and get the solution. In this classes also same thing happen with me.
I brought to my knowledge that it is ‘good to be have desire’ but do not get disappointed when it is not fulfilled as it can be the learning that the way or the formula which you have used can be wrong and you can try something else and new for the same. Rather than to be disappoint you should start thinking about other way.
‘Situation can be up and down we need to be balance.’ We all know this but to manage with this, is difficult for me. I have started keeping some quotes in my mind and continuously remind me for the same. It helps me to manage with the situation. I can connect well this thing with the example given by Ankita ma’am that we need to teach our students how to be patience as every time it is not possible that the situation is in your favour.
‘Take the result as Prasada‘- it is motivating for me. As we always think negative for the situation doesn’t turned my way/as I expected. I realise that when I have connected with my experiences that whenever something bad happen I crib for that but after some time I realise that the reason for that is good. I would like to share my personal experience about it. Previously I was living in join family and very happy as all are there to take care of my kids and I was free to go anywhere but after sometime situation was not the same and due to some reasons we(my spouse and kids) have to be nuclear. At that time my mind was full of the thoughts and judgements about others and so many thoughts and reasons came to my mind. At that time my relation was spoil with my in laws. Now when my sister in law comes to me and shared her feelings with me, I feel that that is good that I am here. she get the space and close to me and we build our trust that she is comfortable to shared her thoughts and feelings with me.
‘For Ashanti you have to do so many things but for shanti you have to do nothing’
I can connect it with my life as it is true that we always crib for the things we don’t have and then says that we have problem. if we reduce our needs then there will be happiness.
‘Do not give advice, it is the insult of others intellectual’
listen to the person is more important to give advice. If you listen to that person he/she feels satisfaction. If you can see the ‘why’ behind any action it will be enlightening for you.
“Gita is the blueprint of your life”
Yes but it is very difficult to follow. As I am trying to control my anger I am observing that it comes more. I still doing good then the last year. As I come to know that it is an emotion but I don’t want others to be the victim of it. So I would like to take sankalp that I will take care not to hurt others by my anger. I hope Lord Krishna help me in the same. I will do my Dharma in any condition. I will think positively for any worst condition that this is good for me as it has taken all my bad karmas.
