Our consciousness shapes our vision. External world may not change for us or will never change for us but if we purify our consciousness then the way we see the world will drastically change. Just before the Mahabharata war Arjuna was in a miserable situation failing to understand the righteous and unrighteous path. But Krishna’s guidance completely transformed his life. The situation for Arjuna remained the same. He had to fight the war; he had to fight against his great grandfather Bhisma, guru Drona and his cousin brothers. But Krishna’s timely intervention dispelled all his ignorance. Arjuna’s consciousness changed and he became ready to battle against mammoth army of Kaurava.
If we imbibe the true spirit of Gita then we won’t get bewildered when we encounter difficulties. Gita’s wisdom nourishes intelligence, strengthens will power and imparts discriminatory power. Armed with these weapons we can face the challenges of life with vigour.
