Without Discipline No Success is Possible – Swami Tejomayananda

Success comes only to a person who is well disciplined in his life, for without discipline no success is possible.

The Vedas tell us to be steadfast in our duties whether they are only simple, daily duties or duties enjoined on us by others. Do not consider what others are doing or not doing; be only concerned about fulfilling your own duty.

We should not indulge in prohibited karmas, meaning actions that are below our human dignity, such as stealing or killing. Prohibited actions are generally motivated by desires that force us to do anything to anybody to satisfy the desire.

Often we ask, “Why are you binding us?” “Why are you giving us all these injunctions and commandments?” The rishis and the Vedas reply, “We are not binding you because you are already bound by all your likes and dislikes, desires and anger. We are actually releasing you from your bondage.
