Spiritualism

My interpretations of spiritualism are based on the principles of Bhagavad Gita and my life experiences.

My interpretation of spiritualism is when a person has love, patience, peace, truth and justice in one's heart. These are also considered as the five pillars of any righteous character according to the Bhagavad Gita. Spiritualism for me is more about understanding ourself than to focus on spirits. Therefore, spiritualism helps us to gain control over our senses and to deal better with daily life challenges.

When we understand how the smallest of our actions may influence a chain of people around us and elsewhere, we begin to think not just about ourselves, our family, our work, our happiness and our desires but also about others in the society. When any work is done with conviction, without the expectations of results and with the thought of benefitting others, it benefits not just the society but also the doer.

Below I share some of my learnings and thoughts on a few topics of spiritualism that may be interesting to read in practical aspects whether one believes in spiritualism or not.

"We only have the right to our work and not to its results. Therefore, it is neither advisable to give up our work nor to expect any results for the same." - Bhagavad Gita
