During the Battle of Kurukshetra, he taught Arjuna many life lessons that we can apply in our own lives.
Here are 5 life-changing lessons of Lord Krishna that you should not miss in Janmashtami 2022.
The meaning of karma
In the sacred scripture Gita, Lord Krishna says that we should focus on our duty, that is, on dharma whenever we are faced with a moral dilemma. This is because emotions make us weak and we deviate from the path of obedience.
According to Lord Krishna, dharma is objective in nature and we should not allow our subjective emotions to get in the way of it.
Everything happens for the best
According to Lord Krishna, whatever happens, happens forever. If you are going through bad times in life, then there is a reason behind it, and you must accept everything that life throws at you.
It is important to live in the present and not worry about the future, because you cannot control it.
Good deeds will always be rewarded
According to Hindu scriptures, Lord Krishna believed that “one who does well never fails.” Anyone who follows his duty will always remain under the protection of Lord Krishna.
Our choices throughout life decide our fate, and those who choose good always remain protected.
No job big or small
Lord Krishna says that no work is menial. You must love your job and give it your best. It doesn’t matter if it’s big or small.
It is extremely important to be truly satisfied with your work and always respect it.
Everyone needs a friend
We all treasure Lord Krishna’s friendship with Sudhama. There is much to learn from the bond they shared with each other. According to the scriptures, their friendship is based on love and respect.
Krishna’s friendship with Draupadi is also highly valued as it teaches us the importance of trust and unity in friendship.
