THE ZEROED IN 'DUTY OF MINE!'
'na karmanam anarambhan naiskarmyam puruso snute
na ca sannyasanad eva siddhim samadhigacchati!'
..Srimad Bhagavad Gita
'A person can never achieve freedom from reactions to activities without first performing the Vedic duties prescribed; neither perfection would be attained by renouncing them as well!'
'Do your duty'
is the oft taught Precept in life. And equally the most important aspect of this Precept is knowing well the so called duty!
The 3 golden ways of assessing this duty of mine to a reasonable level with an ever open mind to modify the same for betterment of me as well the world are
Thru' the oft emphasized guidelines given by my religion, tradition, customs, culture and the law of the land..
Thru' what the people around me feel I should do in the situation.. and
Thru' what my inner consciousness feels as the Right in that context!
As long as there is no conflict between these 3,
my basic duty
forever lies in accepting all the 3 guidelines as they are and following the same a 100%!
But when a conflict surfaces, I should never hurry up here but pause, study carefully the whole effect of doing a particular activity and then only go ahead with my doing there
my safety and peace of mind
All along, I should again remember that
I myself is never a static personality in the situation being subjected to cognizable changes within me with the passage of time.. and
Equally me changing drastically too when a threat situation of serious nature prevails!
When I take such a well-knit Care with me, naturally I can say that I've well planned in my life with my own adjustment in a trifling situation!
And when I go ahead thus along with a firm faith in
that ultimately He alone steers my sails for my betterment in this life..
No doubt.. I have done the best in my life respecting every element of Mother Nature around me and all along never neglected an inch of care from me!
Seen thus, the
Traditional Austerities, Rituals and Practices
involved in my day to day life invariably amount to performing this single activity with all due care in my life Viz.;
