Vedic Wisdom for the Modern Age

If you are going through hell, keep going.” Churchill said. That helps! But think twice. Probably thats the way to deal with it. As another saying goes, “The only way is through it and not around it.”
Shvetashvatara Upanishad declares loud and clear to the whole humanity in unequivocal terms, that we humans are born of immortality! Needless to say, not out of sin or bondage. Human birth is the first and the biggest reward we should all celebrate every moment, unconditionally.
To appreciate Moksha, we need to understand life. Life flows through ups and downs – we spend a lot of time managing problems on a daily basis. What are we hunting for in life? Where does all the achievements lead us to? Deeper analysis will reveal that, a feeling or emotion of happiness is what we go after. In Bhagavad Gita, Krishna describes this life driven by Raga and Dvesha: attraction to things that bring happiness and staying away from things that brings sadness. This is programmed and very natural, so every one behaves the same way. No choice in this for us and hence no need to judge ourselves because of this.
