Stay happy, healthy and safe – 21

उद्धरेदात्मनाऽऽत्मानं नात्मानमवसादयेत्।

आत्मैव ह्यात्मनो बन्धुरात्मैव रिपुरात्मनः।।6.5।।

uddharedaatmanaatmaanam naatmaanamavasaadayet |
aatmaiva hyaatmano bandhuraatmaiva ripuraatmanaha || 6.5 ||

Translation
Uplift yourself by yourself, do not deprecate yourself.

For only you are your friend, and only you are your enemy.

Meaning:
In order to progress in the spiritual path, in fact, any undertaking, we have to lift ourselves by our own efforts. We are our own friend if we do so, and if we don’t, we become our own enemy. In other words, our success and failure is entirely in our hands. No other person can help or hurt us.

The Bhagavad Gita:

      2. Thanks for appreciation Rishabh.
        Don’t worry, there is no rule for nomination. You may nominate any blogger. I believe that upcoming/ new blogger should be motivated by these awards so I prefer not to be go for them. 😊
