The Geeta is considered the Bible of Hinduism. In the image below, the central message of the Geeta is written in Gujurati along with an image of a Hindu God, Yogeshwar. The interviewer’s mother frequently tells him to remember the message of the Geeta when he “complains too often” or is “too lazy”.
Without efforts there is no gain – do not desire anything free
Efforts are never in vain – do not despair
You have the capacity to make efforts – do not feel diffident
Continue to make efforts pray for help and help is assured – do not lose faith
–Rev. Pandurangshastri Athavale
These four statements neatly explain the overall message behind the Hindu Bible, the Geeta. In short, if you make the effort in life to do what is necessary, you will be aided by God in achieving your goals. It is important to have faith in this process and to remain confident in your ability to make change in your life.
