SLOKA OF THE DAY:
Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 18 Text 42
samo damas tapah saucam
ksantir arjavam eva ca
jnanam vijnanam astikyam
samah--peacefulness; damah--self-control; tapah--austerity; saucam--purity; ksantih--tolerance; arjavam--honesty; eva--certainly; ca--and; jnanam--knowledge; vijnanam--wisdom; astikyam--religiousness; brahma--of a brahmana; karma--duty; svabhavajam--born of his own nature.
Peacefulness, self-control, austerity, purity, tolerance, honesty, knowledge, wisdom and religiousness--these are the natural qualities by which the brahmanas work.
While at work I try to remember that this is how I am to act; peacefulness and tolerance being the most important for myself.
