Holy book Gita popularly known as Bhagavad Gita is a collection of dialogues exchanged between Lord Krishna and Arjuna on the battlefield of Kurukshetra (as described in Mahabharata). Gita is Krishna’s counsel to Arjuna which talks about human’s life cycle and purpose of life of any human being. Lets have a look at 10 most important life changing lessons from Krishna as mentioned in Gita.

  1. Our mind should be our friend: Our mind is our enemy if we do not know how to control it. Slowly slowly with a repeated effort and patience we can control our mind through meditation and make it our friend.
  2. Keep doing your karma (work): Doing our work sincerely and removing the expectations or attachment of result will make our life peaceful.
  3. Achieving perfection: A person achieves perfection in his work only if he finds joy in the work he does. Do what you love or else love what you are doing.
  4. Gift of love: Love is the best gift you can give to any person any time. Gift of love is always pure only when it is given from heart and nothing is expected in return.
  5. Say no to feeling of uncertainty: There is no happiness or satisfaction for the person who always doubts on everything around him. Doubt creates a feeling of uncertainty which gives birth to dissatisfaction in your life. So avoid it always.
  6. Power of Will: Anything in this life can be achieved or overcome through the power of will so keep your WILL stronger always.
  7. Art of giving: Nothing in life is permanent and nothing will be ours forever. What we own today will be owned by someone tomorrow so learn the art of giving and donating for its own good.
  8. Keep balance: Balance is the name of life. Everything in our life should be balanced. Do not over sleep or under sleep, do not over eat or eat less and so on. Maintain perfect balance and harmony in whatever you do in life.
  9. Everything happens for a reason: Krishna said that we all are children of God, the only one creator. Moreover since we are children of God so nothing bad can happen to us under His protection. Everything in life is planned for us by Him. Have faith in Him and accept things as it come and do your best at the present moment and leave rest for Him.
  10. Trust your conscience: Every time we question something, we know we have the answer and it lies within us.Our soul has all the answers to our questions. The human conscience is clean and pure and is guided by a pure light in the right direction. We need to learn to trust our conscience.
