Does learning your own mind aid in self-development….
In this article, we shall try to understand why do we all need to follow Bhagavad Gita and how Yogic practices like meditation help to heal ourselves…
Today humanity is going through a difficult period; everyone is seeking solace not only in terms of financial issues, but also in terms of peace of mind, why life is so relentless, and the meaning of life… This difficult period is taking a toll on both physical and mental health.
The world has to turn to Lord Krishna’s gift of true wisdom to Arjuna in the Bhagavad Gita. The Bhagavad Gita has remedies to all kinds of difficulties faced by everyone, affluent or poor, big or small, elderly or adolescent, from any background, gender, caste, creed, religion, or colour. Knowledge, Action, and Love are the three main sections of the Bhagavad Gita. The Bhagavad Gita gives the way to those who are lost, the answer to those who are perplexed, and wisdom to all.
Even in good circumstances, we are not truly happy because of the mind and its connected dimensions, which are the main cause of never-ending pains in our lives. In the end, this causes a slew of physical, mental, and social issues. The fundamental reason for all of these problems is that we were never taught about these dimensions in our life.
Lord Krishna emphasized Yogic practices, particularly meditation. Meditation practiced over time clears the mind about our potentials, relieves tension, cleans the memory of unwanted thoughts and impressions, and strengthens our connection with the Almighty.
Through the compassion of its message of Universal Love, focus on personal responsibility to one’s self and others, and the underlying interconnectedness of all living things, the Gita has influenced many others, including the well-known Hare Krishna movement of today.
The Gita claims that after one has evolved past the acceptance of appearance to an understanding of reality-as-it-is, the differences people notice in each other, as well as the apparent sorrow of loss and death, are recognized as illusions.
In the end, we are all a part of the Universe’s essence, and we can only begin to move toward this realization by first acknowledging it. The Gita is the complete embodiment of this concept of self-actualization and liberation, freeing the soul from the illusions that cause pain and rewarding one with tranquility in this life and connection with God after death. So no need to say everyone who is seeking peace, love and balance in life needs Bhagavad Gita.
The Bhagvad Gita is one of the most well-known Hindu scriptures, and it has served as a source of inspiration for countless people. Many famous people who believe the Gita has been a guiding influence in their life have quoted verses from it. Some of the great people influenced by the Gita include MK Gandhi, Sri Aurobindo, T. S Eliot, Sunita Williams, Annie Besant, E. Sreedharan, Lord Warren Hastings and the list goes on.
