Welcome to my Blog!!
About a year ago on this page I wrote this –
“After a year of personal blogging I have decided that it’s time for me to find a niche. I have been looking for a topic that will benefit my readers as well as myself. I am happy to report that I found one in “Leadership”. “
However, things did not go as planned. As I started on this leadership exploratory journey, I got sidetracked.
I discovered that my children and other children in my neighborhood had limited knowledge about our religion – Hinduism. I found that even I had much to learn even though I have always declared myself to be a proud Hindu. So this journey had to begin with me.
I started reading about Hinduism. At the same time I started teaching what I was learning to my kids and other kids in the neighborhood. Our weekly classes which were to last one week ending up lasting for many months.
In my constant exploration of this subject on the internet, the teachings of Bhagavad Gita, which is considered a holy book of Hindus caught my interest. The name of this 700 verse book translates in English to “Song Of God”. It is written in Sanskrit and is said to epitomize the entire teaching of Hinduism. I decided to hone in on this book and to my delight, found it to be an absolute joy.
While “teaching” the teachings of this book, I learned the core of leadership, which is that leadership needs to come from within. It is an offshoot of personal passion. And passion is what leads to leadership.
My passion and love for this book made me develop “leadership qualities” in this subject area. The leadership qualities of dedication, hard-work, public speaking, commitment, integrity, enthusiasm, compassion, service and many more, appeared in me without me working on any of them consciously.
I do not profess to be a scholar and an expert on this book. Every time I read it, I learn something new.
In this blog, I have attempted to write in a concise manner the simplified teachings of this great masterpiece. Even though it is a holy book for the Hindus, it is actually the best self-help book ever written.
I hope you will enjoy it and learn something from it
