Here are 5 life learning lessons from Bhagavad Gita which will surely guide you:

Everything happens, it happens for a reason

One should always remember that everything which has happened in the past was for a reason, what is happening in present is for a reason and what will happen in the future is also for a reason. Every action you take, every work you do is always related to a reason. The above-stated lesson emphasizes the continuance of accepting the ups and downs of life. Don’t repent of the past or worry about the future. Be optimistic and have faith.

Understand that change is the universal law

The best illustration of the fact that change is the universal law, and nothing is permanent is the example of day turning into the night and into the day again. Nothing is permanent, never expect what you have today will always be there with you. People, surroundings, society everything changes with time. One should always embrace the changes and should always try to accept them.

You are born empty-handed and will go empty-handed

Nothing in this world belongs to me or you. The whole universe and everything which lies in between is of almighty. People tend to get attached to materialistic things so much that they forget that they can not take those things with them to their grave. You should always be satisfied with whatever you have and should always try to do good deeds. There is no use in doing evil things.

Be fearless

Fear is one of the basic emotions that everyone has with them. Fear can be related to anything like it can be for materialistic things and can also be in your mind. Fear in other words is known as the doubts in your ability. Never Shrink in fear, fight to the last, and stand your ground. Being fearless not only helps you to concentrate on your goal but also helps you bring success.

Manage your anger

Anger causes delusion. It is one of the three main gates to hell. Anger destroys our ability to reason leading to chaos. It no longer serves a good purpose it decreases the clarity of thoughts and distracts from our goals. One must try to stay calm and handle the situation.

Bhagavad Gita has always guided the lost, have answered the confused, and has provided wisdom to all.

The most popular version of the rhyme/lullaby

As children, singing the rhyme Rock A Bye Baby was a fun thing to do. It was a statement of thrill and adventure to imagine a child climbing to the top of a tree and rocking to sleep. Especially in the Indian context, rocking a baby to sleep by attaching the cradle to the tree is quite a common thing. But the origin of this rhyme, or lullaby, seems rooted in other histories.

The most popular notion associated with this lullaby is of women leaving their babies tied to tree branches, rocking to sleep with the wind. It is believed that at the time this lullaby was written, it was inspired by a coloniser who saw the Native American women tie their children in birch bark cradles to the trees. The babies went to sleep rocked by the gusts of wind while the parents went about their tasks.
