STRESS A spiritual dimension Stress - An unavoidable phenomenon in this ‘Material World’

Slide46:

The Bhagavad Gita states that this world is temporary, and is abode of miseries. Stress, Anxiety, Tension, Conflict, etc. are natural to this world.

Slide47:

We, being ‘conditioned souls’, are part of this world, and hence undergo various types of sufferings.

Slide48:

Most common sufferings are: Janma (birth) Mrityu (death) Jara (old age) Vyadhi (diseases)

Apart from that we all face 3-fold miseries: Adhyatmika - due to the body & the mind Adhidaivika - due to superior natural forces Adhibhautika - due to other living entities

Solution to Stress Management lies beyond this world. Any attempt to find solution to this problem in anything of this world will be futile.

Accept that we need help. Just like Arjuna did.

Slide54:

They arise from sense perception, O scion of Bharata, and one must learn to tolerate them without being disturbed. - Bhagavad Gita As It Is [2.14]
