Efforts Attain Highest State of Wisdom
Arjuna says, I don’t want to fight, as there are big warriors in front of me and in their comparison, I am not so.
Then Lord Krishna said,
taktwa hriday duryabalyam uttishth param tapa.
Meaning that, keep aside the weakness of your heart and do your karma. Srimad Bhagwad Gita never teaches that, you abandon your duties and work and be dependent on your destiny. Whatever lord will give, I will accept, NO…..
In Yoga Vashishtha MahaRamayana (famous Hindu Scripture), it is written, that
“O’ Lord Rama ! The one who always remain dependent on the destiny and resists one self from doing karma, is a coward, & the one who does purusharth (efforts) is blessed with enlightenment. Here efforts win, not the destiny. Even destiny is made out of efforts. A farmer was ploughing a field, suddenly a bird collided with the plough , he caught & sold the bird. He thought the amount which i gained by farming for so many days, can be gained just by selling a bird. Hence from today onwards,no farming just selling the birds. No, everyday he would go to the field and waited for a bird to collide, and in this manner waited for long , but thereafter ,neither a bird collided nor he could sell & earn money. Many people become happy by incidental profits, “Today is sorrow, Tomorrow will be happiness”. Dont wait for incidental profits, do efforts. Doing work is your duty and rewarding for that is the duty of God.
Uddeme na sidhhyanti karyani na manorathayi,
nahi suptasya sinhasya pravishyanti mukhe mriga.
meaning that , if a lion opens his mouth and keep sitting with the expectation that a deer will enter his mouth automatically ,then lion is mistaken. Similarly, If you want to eat chapatti and the flour , roller , chapati board as well as vegetables are near you, efforts have to be put in by you, so that your stomach gets filled. Therefore, one should always perform duties . Bhagvad Gita says that one who coordinates his work, knowledge and devotion, remains detached to materialistic world even though living in it. Just as Lotus grows into the water but remains unaffected by water. Like tongue remains inside your mouth, tastes lot of Ghee, Oil and butter but never becomes lube, similarly, while living in this materialistic world one should always take shelter of spiritual discourses and wisdom of Bhagwad Gita so that one can attain enlightment.
