Arjuna asks Krishna, “How could we be happy by hurting our own kinsmen?”
Student’s context : In the context of today’s education scenario, lot of comparison takes place between students, students try and defend on the wrong grounds and use hook or crook to win the race. This needs to be abandoned as said in Bhagavatgeeta that one can never achieve the true happiness on hurting others.
It is best to concentrate on one-self’s positive energy rather than acting for the downfall of others. As such, for a student in higher education sector, it is very important not to hurt others and at the same time work for self-satisfaction.
Krishna says, “A sober person is not bewildered by any change in life. One must learn to tolerate them without being disturbed. In the proper discharge of your duty, one has to learn to tolerate non-permanent appearances and disappearances of happiness and distress.”
Student’s context: Changes are apparent in the lifestyle of a higher education student. As such, one has to accept the change with understanding towards it and without regret.
Act in knowledge and consciousness, not expecting any results in the future.
Student’s Context: There is much difference between working in consciousness and working for fruitful results. With expectation, comes the higher probability of dissatisfaction. So, as a student, it is essential to work for the justification of subject and not doing the same just to meet the deadlines or under the pressure of someone. Such work will never have the quality and will be done mere as an act of work completion.
When your mind is no longer disturbed by the flowery language and when it remains fixed in the trance of self-realization, then one attains the divine consciousness.
Student’s context: Many a times, different people come into the life of student to preach on different things. At that time, there are potential chances of distraction and we tend to change our direction of work. Instead, there should be much concentration towards our own state of mind. This brings inner-pleasure and satisfaction.
