- The Bhagavad Gita Chapter 18, Verse 78
Even as we are trying to understand the mysteries of our life and try to figure out the reality from all the illusion around us, we still do have to deal with day-to-day activities like paying the bills and dealing with colleagues and coworkers!
Throughout the Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna explained Dharma to Arjun- explaining to how, the ways and means by which he can figure out what is right from wrong. He also showed Arjun (who was also his friend) his true Divine form. All of this helped to clear all doubts which Arjun felt.
It helped to clear all his apprehensions and finally- at the very end of his narration, Lord Krishna said this shloka- further giving assurance to Arjun- that the one who follows the path of ‘correct action’ will have the Divine by their side.
And once one has the power of the Divine, the Universal power, then success is bound to be attained.
Now- this message, this quote from The Bhagavad Gita is reminding us, it is assuring us- that till our goals, our ambitions are for beneficial and for the higher good (in accordance to our Dharma) and we continue to proceed on our chosen path with faith and devotion, then we can be assured that we will have divine support and presence in our life and work- when we perform action, that is in accordance to our dharma and we do it to the best of our ability, acquiring the required skills (as necessary), honing and bettering our self (as needed)… and with the divine by our side, we are bound to be successful in all our ventures.
What a wonderful message to get for this week ahead. I hope you take help and heart from this quote… and have a fantastic week ahead… I wish you the very best…
