BHAGAVAD GITA IN DAILY LIFE AS UNDERSTOOD BY JAGADISH REFERENCE: SWAMI CHINAMAYANANDA

This is a small treatise of information about Bhagavad-Gita and how it can be applied to management and daily life WHY STUDY GEETA IN 21ST CENTURY IN 21st century management problems overall have become much more tougher to solve , people brain power even now hasn’t developed much to the increasing demand of customers . Customers have become much more demanding with increased after sale service notion and other benefits are being asked by them which has made managing them tougher and tougher with coming days

What can Geeta teach to them is now the question? Geeta expounds the relationship between human beings by helping each other in a novel fashion. It teaches youth of today as to how to face the world with gusto, with manliness, sublimity and honesty in making decisions without getting bogged down to daily tensions in office and house Geeta teaches you the change management principle of how a normal individual in daily life faces problems of change in office and how with the help of Geeta he can win laurels in office and house management by applying the principle of ethics etc Geeta has been taught and can be taught in different languages and in different ways but I thought of highlighting in a novel fashion as applicable to managing resources in office mainly and to certain extent house management This is a honest initiative to make Geeta called by Indians as Bhagavad-Gita to bring it closer to the doorstep of management Hope you all would love to read this along with me to explore this beautiful proposition (for or against the topic ) of Bhagavad-Gita In today’s tension field people are looking for spiritualistic growth along with mental growth that is why reading Bhagavad-Gita and understanding it becomes part and parcel of a student, manager and employee’s life to know what is right and wrong in today’s world Chapter One In the story of Bhagavad gita Arjuna is considered to be a human being having personal problem in life . he has to chose in a battlefield whether to fight or leave the battle field , fighting against relatives and friends was the most difficult task assigned to him,. sri krishna atlast understands his problem and gives him a dosage as to how to lead life in times of difficulty

in the same way a human being also encounters problems like arjuna which sometimes is easy to solves and sometimes so tricky that you need guidance, in the battlefield of mahabharata arjuna took the guidance of friend, philosopher in the shape of krishna , the lord. jagadish also states that having a mentor is very crucial in life to solve the day to day problems the great shiv khera in his book you can win talks about having association with high moral ethics gives you greater rewards than being associated with wretched , money minded personalities who are just bothered about themselves. in times of difficulty only moral ethics (on which the book talks about) people give assurance and guidance about lifting people from wretched lives and not the other way round how to select a mentor is now a question that can be asked now ? the answer is simple, child looks out towards parents for guidance, students looks out for guidance in the form of teacher, elders look out for guidance in form of books , now question arises are these mentors perfect mentors or not, the question here is nobody is perfect in life but situations handling determines whether the guy duped a person or gave a helping hand , only high moral ethics , not even lesser moral ethics, it is higher moral ethics association determines whether you are a successful or just another guy in life sent to earth and did a job and left as it is or worked for betterment of humanity with face in the crowd moral of the story 1) get associated with high moral ethics people 2) judge them whether mentors help people in and around them when the chips are down or not 3) even elders make mistake, have decision making skills and 4) financial personal affairs books are very crucial for survival in this 21st century 5) share and read knowledgable books in life , they are the once which tell you whether you are successful or just a laggard in life www.investopedia.com

chapter 2

The lord Krishna talks about STITHPRGNATVA ( balance of mind in times of emergency situation ) also called as sankhya yoga . The lord himself ridicules Arjuna to have balance of mind in life. STITHPRAGNATVA if one person develops over a period of time through meditation automatically attains hold on living life joyfully. it

is just like stoic philosophy of life being of same personality whether happiness or sadness comes to a person through events people take advantage of any person if balance of mind is not their .emotional people can easily be exploited and made fun off by intelligent people. if you do not want to give baton to intelligent people learn to develop stoic philosophy in life which very enthusiastically told by lord krishna in the form of STITHPRAGNATVA how to develop this type of stoic philosophy in life. do a lot of meditation for 1 hour daily . ask a person to ridicule you every now and then , never react to the words and keep your temper and composure towards the person criticizing you with even mindset. how to do meditation is now the question you can do it by praying to the lord by keeping his image in the thought and focussing all your attention towards that photo in the mind. concentrate and develop balance of mind (STITHPRAGNATVA) moral of the story a) read personality books of Anthony robbins b) read personality books of Dale carnegie c) Develop balance of mind through meditation for just 1 hour daily CHAPTER 3

The lord talks about bhakti yoga ( having faith in lord) in times of difficult times. according to jagadish this is the easiest path adopted by people to stay away from problems by an intelligent being. just say to yourself whenever a problem comes if you believe in bhakti yoga The problem has come, now lord wants me to settle the issue , it is his wish so i am performing the act, the lord would take care for the actions taken by me to solve the problem. It is his blessing in disguise the question here now arises that lord krishna himself never advocated entirely to leave it to the god. he also stated to perform actions to solve the problem also and not leave the problem without taking necessary steps to solve the problem. it is belief blindly followed by many thinking action is not needed while lord said do not leave the result to god but do action to solve the problem as much as you can to solve it moral of the story

a) Never leave a problem unsolved , leave the problem to the lord only if you are satisfied that proper action has been taken by you wholeheartedly b) read sprituality books to get solace http://www.sacred-texts.com/index.htm chapter 4

The lord Krishna talks about karma yoga . here he states to arjuna that performing an action is also as good as bhakti yoga. this type of yoga is done by those who believe in performing work for pleasure. work has to be taken seriously but also joyfully. actions determine results of one individual and those who take actions as per their liking give much more results and have much more satisfaction towards life than those who take actions and job for name sake karma yoga talks about leaving action after performing them to satisfaction. the basic difference between bhakti yoga and karma yoga is that bhakti yoga talks about action leaving it to god , karma yoga talks about performing action and leaving action without looking for returns for the action taken vivekananda says that work if you do not perform in karma yoga their is always somebody else in your place to perform the action. it is you who have been given the responsibility to perform the action. if you delegate, you lose the opportunity but their would always be someone who would grab the opportunity and leave a mark in the time zone of humanity

moral of the story a) look for responsibility handling if you can perform them on your own instead of delegating everytime to others intelligently b) read swami vivekananda books for guidance in life http://www.ramakrishnavivekananda.info/vivekananda/complete_works.htm CHAPTER 5 The lord again now talks to arjuna about jnana yoga ( yoga of knowledge ). it is popular belief that jnana yoga if is talked about has to do it in the form of sharing the knowledge with other. what is the use of keeping the knowledge with yourself , you can atleast make somebody life memorable by sharing the knowledge

their are hundreds of intellectuals in this world, but nobody bothered to contribute , they kept the knowledge to themselves and i call them fools because they never bothered to create name for themselves. I believe in sharing knowledge this gives you a upperhand in creating name and fame for yourself in 21st century and coming centuries moral of the story a) write blogs and share knowledge , if luck permits and your hardwork gets rewards, you can be face in the crowd b) if you are afraid of blogs choose google docs or scribd to publish your literature and get money in the process and knowledge and fame c) leave this world a better place by choosing good deeds and knowledge is wealth if shared through action not the other way round CHAPTER 6 The lord again highlights to arjuna that their are three foundation stone on which man has lived upon. they are tamas (lazy life), rajas ( active life) and lastly satvic ( which is combination of tamas and rajas). people mistakenly call satvic as spiritual life but vivekananda defined it this way which is better following ? which gives you better life ? . jagadish states and others also who are intelligent would chose satvic type of lifestyle why satvic and not rajas rajas actually is work work and work without peace of mind or can be termed as tension life, satvic life teaches you balance of life how to handle it effectively your life without undergoing stress, do work leisurely is my concept, tamas on its own is dangerous and you become good for nothing but if done with rajas gives you far fetched results how to be satvic swamijis say do not eat spicy food if one has be in satvic . i call it wastage of words because without spicy food how can you live life completely. one has to be allrounder is life and not one sided life which nobody will neither understand life nor follow nor one can lead by example moral of the story a) be satvic ( enjoy life) by being allrounder b) read autobiography of people who have succeeded in life either spiritually or business or in other areas where they gained success in life

c) chose books intelligently and win laurels of whole world through implementation of modelling told by anthony robbins in his books

CHAPTER 7 lastly before leaving bhagavad gita summation of text is A) live life as per your style not by following others blindfoldedly B) Follow by leading through example by being face in the crowd C) Follow healthy habbits by reading good books and be a vegetarian --- save animals they are also living beings D) Save planet from extinction by writing blogs E) Create awareness for the knowledge you know F) lastly be an allrounder

G) Think on what i wrote and not use it blindfoldedly but discuss with someone intelligently OM TAT SAT END OF BHAGAVAD GITA
