The country is celebrating Janmashtami today. Janmashtami is an occasion to celebrate Shri Krishna’s birthday. Shri Krishna is not just a deity for many but also a source of unquestionable wisdom and guidance in the form of Bhagvad Gita.
Bhagvad Gita has philosophies which can help students fight issues like anxiety and self-doubt in student life.
Few teachings by Shri Krishna in Bhagvad Gita which can be useful for a student:
1. Change is the law of the Universe:
Students can learn from this teaching that nothing is permanent and if they have failed in their endeavor it does not mean that it would remain so forever.
Work is indeed worship and student’s should not shy away from hard work.
2. Man is made by his belief:
In the age of social media, students mostly suffer from self-doubt and low self- confidence. Belief in their own capabilities is what sets most of the successful students apart.
Meditation has been proven to have lasting effect on students and can help immensely with anxiety during exams or other stressful situations in student life.
4. Dream big:
In Bhagvad Gita, Krishna says that we are kept from our goals not by obstacles but by a clear path to a lesser goal.
So person should dream big and should not be deterred by obstacles in the path to achieve those dreams.
