NLP Psychology through Bhagwad Geeta
NLP, an offshoot of the positive psychology movement has its basis in one’s ability to achieve what he wants by making choices leading to success. It’s this core belief that generates numerous possibilities and coupled with presuppositions like “There is no failure only feedback”; it encourages seekers to persistently act until they achieve success.
If one looks at the NLP communication model and core presuppositions, one would know that the philosophy behind this entire schema is far beyond the set of techniques that it has been reduced to. The concepts behind NLP techniques (NLP psychology) can really enable a seeker to achieve great success and fulfilment in life and that is what made me look at it from Bhagwad Geeta’s point of view.
Srimad Bhagwad Geeta
Bhagwad Geeta, nested in the core of the greatest epic ever written – The Mahabharata, is unique in many perspectives. One of the most significant is the context, unlike the popular perception that talk of spirituality should only be done towards the end of one’s professional life, it is set up in a battlefield, a place where one needs all his faculties at their peak performance. It goes on to clarify the distinction between action that is directed towards the achievement of goals and action that is misdirected that leads to loss. Behaviour on the battlefield is mostly instinctive, and it is where the changed programming takes place.
It is an amazing conversation between a teacher and seeker, and a testament to how words can affect and create change in one’s thinking.
It is difficult to summarise the uniqueness of Bhagwad Geeta in one document and hence, a complete program, the reality is even the program, no matter how long, would not be enough to completely understand Geeta.
So, to keep it focussed, in 16 sessions that will take place fortnightly, we would learn how we can reprogram our minds and assist other using learnings from Bhagwad Geeta.
