The 'Number One Formula' for Happiness in Life!



For a doubt from Prince Arjuna on who is Sthitaprajna (Man of Steady Wisdom), Lord Krishna answered thus (Chapter 2 Sloka 55-56).....

Prajahaati yadaa kaamaan sarvaan partha manogataan;
aatmanyevaatmanaa tushtah sthitaprajnastadochyate.


When a man completely casts off o Arjuna, all the desires of the mind and is satisfied in the Self alone, then he is said to be one of steady wisdom...

Duhkheshwanudwignamanaah sukheshuvigatasprihah;
Veetaragabhayakrodhah sthitadheer munir uchyate


He, whose mind is not shaken by adversity, who does not hanker after pleasures and who is free from attachment, fear and anger is called a sage of steady wisdom.

A Sage of steady Wisdom  is truly the above but here there is a discrete Message for an ordinary mortal like me too from the Lord….. 'You too should rise in the Path of Sthithaprajna in this life!'

Yes…. It is my first to duty here in this life to do that and further to say, whether I wish for it or not, I am destined to rise in this Path only….

And seen from the other end too, this alone is No One Safe Way of Living my Life happily on the Earth.... And further to say, this Attitude is nothing but a 'Combined Effort' of five Specific Actions from my side all along....

'Refraining from all types of wild behaviors as much as possible
Involve actively taking care of the immediate Responsibilities and thus
Go ahead steadily in life ever
Holding the bridle firmly and finally be ready to
Take whatever comes thru’ in the process!’

To ascertain this further, the very Word ‘RIGHT’ is in the forefront of these five actions together!
