Good Morning friends, Thursday, September 04, 2008. Today is Thursday, so day starts with prayer at dadaji’s house. At AMA, y’day it was time of Swami Atmaanda of Vedanta Mission. HE said we need to dare to dream Big. Following is complete news.
The important thing in one’s life is to set a goal for oneself and strive hard to achieve it, said founder of Vedanta Mission, Indore, Swami Atmananda.
Speaking at the lecture series being held at Ahmedabad Management Association (AMA) on ‘Inspirations for purposeful living symbolized by Lord Ganesha’ , Swamiji said, “To set a goal, we need to dream and dare to dream big. One then prepares himself to take on challenges and responsibilities to discover one’s real potential. Your limits to achieve the set goal are decided by you. One makes one’s own destiny. And, this is the crux of life.”
The problems will be there. The amount of patience to tackle the problems reflects the real limits of persons facing problems, he added.
For goal seekers, there is no better role model than Lord Ganesha. Rather than focusing on issues like his big ears or big belly, the right thing to is to accept that Lord Ganesha represents a holistic view and embodiment of all the best values . Lord Ganesha is unique.
“To achieve a goal, belief is necessary. The foremost thing is what the goal in your mind is. A great goal can make a great person. If one is unable to think of a goal, no actions, not even a miracle can help one to become great. Two important attitudes are also necessary to attain the set goal. One is “attention” and the other is “attentiveness.” A focused attention helps to increase the “concentration power,” which makes it easy to reach the goal. But to concentrate, one must practice it.”
“We must focus on ‘ dhyaan ‘ to build power concentration. The power of concentration is already there, but we have to polish it and use it with efficacy. A particular point has to be chosen and attention has to be focused on that. This is a ‘sadhana’ , which has to be practised with ‘shradda’ ,” Swamiji said.
The Swamiji, who has done considerable work on “stress management” and methods to combat it, had a simple advice for all those under stress. “To overcome stress, de clutch from problems” , he added.
He said it’s a mistaken belief that stress cannot be eliminated. “It is an important part of life. The men of medicine advise people to fight stress or flee from it. But there is a better way and that is to start each day as a fresh day. Leave the problems of the past behind. Do not get into the anxieties of future.”
God has created wonderful things for the mankind to ponder, appreciate and experience . The best way to handle stress is to focus on these and move ahead rather than invite stressful conditions and become victims of psychosomatic ailments, Swamiji added.
