Vicious and virtuous cycles are a sequence of events where one event leads to another and results in either disaster or joy respectively. If expenses are more than income, leading to borrowing and debt trap, it's a vicious cycle. If expenses are less than income, resulting in savings and wealth creation, it's a virtuous cycle. Krishna refers to these cycles in verses 2.62 to 2.64.

Quote From Bhagavad Gita


"We would incur no sin when we perform any karma (deed/action) if we were to treat sukh (pleasure) and dukh (pain); labh (gain) and nasht (losses); and jaya (victory) and apajaya (defeat) with equipoise." - Verse- 2.38

Glimpses

Liberating Oneself

In the Gita, some words like anaasakti and veet-raag represent the crux of the Gita. While aasakthi (attachment) and virakti (detachment) are two polarities, anaasakti transcends these polarities.

Facets of Sin

The question of vikarma (prohibited action) or sin is very intriguing. Arjun is also in this very dilemma and says that sin alone will accrue by killing relations in battle (1.36).

Ever Content

A hungry fox tried to reach for grapes hanging high above, failed and moved on bringing itself to think that the grapes were sour.

Drop both Lust and Resolve

Every culture evolved some dos and don'ts for peace in society and with the evolution of justice systems, some donโ€™ts have become punishable crimes.

Karma, Akarma and Vikarma

โ€˜Acts of commission and omission' is a phrase commonly used in the legal lexicon. A driver failing to apply brakes at the appropriate moment has committed an act of omission resulting in an accident.

Ways of Liberated Souls

Krishna says that actions do not taint him nor does he have a longing for fruits of action. He also says that whoever realises him is thus not bound by actions (4.14).

Dropping sense of doership

In the verse 2.48, Krishna asks Arjun, "To be steadfast in yoga (yoga being equanimity) while performing karma (actions) by renouncing the sangam (union/identify) with polarities like success and failure."

Repetition is the key to mastery

Karna and Arjun were born to Kunti but ended up fighting for the opposite sides.

Karma Phal might not be what it seems

Krishna says that we have the right to do karma (action) but have no right over karma-phal (fruits of action).
