Stay happy, healthy and safe- 74

One who has control over the mind is

tranquil in heat and cold,

in pleasure and pain, and in honor and dishonor;

and is ever steadfast with the Supreme Self.

उद्धरेदात्मनाऽऽत्मानं नात्मानमवसादयेत्।

Uplift yourself by yourself, do not deprecate yourself.

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

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:

Work is worship

Set thy heart

               upon thy work,

                             but never on its reward.”

― Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

(writer of Mahabharata)
