There arose perplexity in the mind of Arjuna while standing in the middle of Krukshetra’s battlefield. He candidly conveyed his thoughts to Lord Krishna, whom he considered to be his friend. He had entrusted not only the reins of his horses to Krishna but also of his mind. Arjuna sought His guidance which led to the recital of Bhagwad Gita through the divine lips of Lord Himself. This heavenly discourse dispelled Arjuna’s delusions and he grasped what he ought to do. Similarly, we too have our Lord residing within us all the time. If ever called for help, He will instantly appear to lead our senses in the right direction. The underlying factor, however, is the absolute faith. Hence, in the state of despondency, if we sincerely open our heart to God, right direction comes our way. Having Him at the driving seat, we can joyfully pass through the uneven journey of life.
“निकालेगा कश्ती भवर से तुम्हारी,
खुदा को माझी बना कर तो देखो।”
