Understanding Bhagavad Gita through NLP

Shreemad Bhagavad Gita is the most sacred and holy book of Hinduism. The quality, which sets Gita apart from other holy scriptures, is the propagation of selfless action without getting attached to consequences.

It lays huge emphasis on renunciation between mind, body and soul and ultimate realisation of the divine. In a nutshell, it teaches us the liberated way to live life. NLP (Neuro Linguistic Program) various training programs are immensely inspired from Bhagavad Gita designed to eradicate all the fears and have faith in the divine

The idea is to release all the hurtful and negative feelings, emotions, thoughts and restore peace and solitude in the mind.  So, here we are trying to understand the essence of Geeta through NLP perspective:-

Illusion and action- What is illusion? It is nothing, but wrong or misinterpreted perception of our mental and sensor organs. Therefore, NLP always lays stress on taking decisions and not lucrative decisions. A decision is a decision, results are not in our hands, so there is no reason to take stress and enormous tension.

Concept of enjoying the materialistic world- In our life spans, time changes, but we don’t. We keep living the past for decades and never enjoy the present. NLP promotes the concept of enjoying materialistic world and fulfill all desires, but without getting attached.

There is always the choice- There is a famous quote from the movie Spiderman stating “Whatever comes our way, whatever battle we have raging inside us, we always have a choice”. NLP core concept is to diminish the fear of failure as it sucks all the skills and talent of the person. Failure is first step towards success and there is always a choice in your hand.

Management of emotional states- Both Bhagavad Gita and NLP lays great stress on maintaining cordial balance between different emotional states and using them to your advantage. This method is extremely effective for achieving goal.
