FOUR MANTRAS TO MENTAL WELLBEING FROM THE PAGES OF BHAGAVAT GITA 1. Be Yourself The Gita teaches us that we have a duty to follow our own paths. “It is far better to discharge one’s prescribed duties, even though faultily, than another’s duties perfectly. Destruction in the course of performing one’s own duty is better than engaging in another’s duties, for to follow another’s path is dangerous.” 2. Do Without Expectation You’ve probably read it a thousand times. It’s regurgitated endlessly. The Gita tells us to: “Renounce the fruits of labour.” 3. Moderate Your Life The ancient Greeks echoed the same sentiment repeatedly: “Nothing in excess.” Live a life of moderation. Limit intake and mitigate excessiveness in every domain. 4. Practice Meditation The gateway to equilibrium? The remedy to mental anguish? Meditate.
