"Sir! I forever advocate following of the 'Golden Mean Path' in our lives. If the powerful man really becomes angry with us, it's sure a problem. Further, it's very difficult to bring a change in the world and in that context, even the Great Men and Women of the Earth at one stage had left it to happen by itself..

As I'm very much limited and infinitesimally small compared to the Great Personalities, I feel I should all along just
  • Listen around, 
  • Look at my own limitations in the situation and 
  • Act as per that clarity alone! 
This discipline exactly fits into what Lord Krishna says thru' Verse 35, Chapter III of Srimad Bhagavad Gita..

'Shreyan swadharmo vigunah paradharmaat swanusshthitaat
Swadharme nidhanam shreyah paradharmo bhayaavahah.'


'Ever safe is one’s own duty than the duty of another even well discharged. Better is even death in one’s own duty than the duty of another full of fear!'

What do you say?"

"Dear! Lord Krishna thru' Verse 60 of earlier Chapter of Srimad Bhagavad Gita equally says..

'yatato hy api kauteya purusasya vipascitah
indriyani pramathini haranthi prasabham manah'


'O Arjuna! The senses are so turbulent they can forcibly carry away even the mind of vigilant person of sound judgement (normal people being no exception there)' 

In that context, as I understand What the Great People of Earth talked of the 'Golden Mean Path', I need to look at my decision a second time without an exception because equally the duty thru' such a Golden Mean Path adapted by me says..

'When once the base living is reasonably ensured and safety established, you should never rest but thru' a certain self sacrifice,

  • Dynamically look at the issues in front, 
  • Start acting as per your duty associated there and thus 
  • Continue your life for the betterment of yourself and others around you!
In the process,
  • Certain criticisms, 
  • Some seclusion and 
  • Few limited oppositions 
Would sure come up without a say. You should take them with a smile yourself never reacting but still insist on the Right to be done. Only when you sense certain threat and dislocation which is likely to cause substantial disturbance to the otherwise stable life of yours going on, You should sure

  • Take care, 
  • Make certain compromise and thus 
  • Continue at that level.. .
As this goes on, people around soon understand you at your own level and they too in time become supportive there..

You thus become stronger in your area/surroundings with the genuine people okaying your doing and with such an added strength, you should start doing the Right much more steadily and thus sail thru' this life with


Giving a meaning to what the Great Personalities have advised us to follow as truly




  1. Very valid point Sir. Reminds me of a popular line from Tamil version of Bhagavad Gita - "Kadamai Sei ; Palanai edhir parathe" - which is roughly translated into "Do your duty; have no expectations of the reward that follows". Whatever be the situation one is in, he must do his duty/dharma, what is right with all his sincerity. Awards and rewards will come on its own. As you said, it makes him a noble person!

    1. Yes, Manasaa.. The Golden Mean Path is ideal for anyone in this world and equally safe too but it forever asserts not to take life cool under the feeling that I am a limited person and expects one to progress within the limits thru' a definite sacrifice and help out the people by the side.. The Path forever says.. SAFE GUARD YOURSELF BUT NEVER REST DOING LIMITED UNDER THAT FEELING! Thanks for the nice comment here!
