It has been not a very good journey so far until today when I decided to change my PhotoBlog to my personal blog. I hardly go on PhotoWalks, less than twice in a month I take out my camera. It’s the reason I started thinking “Why am I running a blog which I can’t even update regularly?” This blog will now be about the things I will do in my life which will be worth sharing with the world. I haven’t done anything good in my life. I should say I was only spending my life which from now onwards I want to LIVE.
In the last few days I have been making my mind to study the holy books for spiritual awareness. Now I have decided that I am going to study the “Srimad Bhagvad Gita” (The Bhagvad Gita), also referred to as Gita, the holy book of Hindus which is about teachings of Lord Krishna to his disciple Arjuna in the battlefield of Kurukshetra ahead of the war. The Bhagvad Gita comprises 18 chapters and a total of 700 verses.
The purpose of reading the holy books is to get spiritual awareness and also peace of mind. Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi or Mahatma Gandhi once said, “When doubts haunt me, when disappointments stare me in the face, and I see not one ray of hope on the horizon, I turn to Bhagvad-Gita and find a verse to comfort me; and I immediately begin to smile in the midst of overwhelming sorrow. My life has been full of external tragedies and if they have not left any visible or invisible effect on me, I owe it to the teaching of the Bhagavad Gita.” It is not that I knew this, I found this while searching about influences of the Bhagvad Gita on the web and came across the Wikipedia page of the holy book.
Today, I’ll start reading the Bhagvad Gita and will blog post on what I learn from the teachings. Not only I will post about my learning of the Bhagvad Gita, but will also be sharing every other thing I will feel good to share with the world.
