Teachings from Chapter VII of Bhagavad Gita

Among thousands of men, one perchance strives for perfection; even among those successful strivers, only one perchance knows Me in essence.
Four kinds of virtuous men worship me – they are the distressed, the seeker of knowledge, the seeker of wealth and the wise. Of these the wise, ever steadfast and devoted to the One (Supreme Truth) excels; for I am exceedingly dear to the wise, and he is dear to Me.
Noble indeed are the four kind of men; but the wise man, I deem as My very Self; for, steadfast in mind he is established in Me alone, as the Supreme Goal.
At the end of many births the wise man comes to Me, realizing that all this is Vasudeva, the innermost Self, such a great soul is very hard to find.

When we seek to please others, we often end up in defeat and bitterness – Dada J P Vaswani

Happiness is in the mind, not in objects. Money can give us lot of things; in fact, people say money can buy anything – but money cannot buy you happiness! For happiness is not an object – it is a state of mind. It cannot be purchased; it can only be experienced.

When we seek to please others, we often end up in defeat and bitterness. Trying to please others, we build up expectations; we imagine the rewards, the advantages, the appreciation that would accrue to us out of our efforts – and when this is not forthcoming, we end up blaming ourselves and others.
Don’t bother about what other people say! Let them say what they like. But do not let them upset you. What other people say does not really matter; it does not really count in the ultimate analysis. What really matters, what counts is what you do. Do your duty.
Seek only to please Him (God) – seek not to please ‘them,’ whoever they may be.
