Whatever Be The Task Always Give Our Best

Whatever be the task always give our best. Then our work will not be a drudgery but a source of joy.

For life not to become a burden, develop self-control and self-discipline.

I did the best. Still I did not get the desired result. So I am frustrated, disappointed, hurt and unhappy.

But did you enjoy what you did? Or were you always bothered by the end result. True joy is not in the momentary accolades and recognition from other people, which is forgotten the next moment. If you enjoy what you do, you will not be bothered about results.

Quite often joy lies not in the goal but in how we reach the goal.

Limitations vanish and new opportunities arise the moment we stop clinging to the past.

You need not do anything. Just be unselfish, don’t seek anything and be motherly to all. You will see a miracle happening in your own life.


That one Supreme Being, the embodiment of all-pervading Consciousness, envelops all — within and without. He is the Object of knowledge of all the Vedas; He is the Creator of Vedanta; and He is also the Knower of the Vedas. One who knows this, knows Vedanta. If one does not perceive this, truly one has not understood anything about Vedanta, although one might have studied all the books. (Swami Turiyananda)


There was a hall where Buddha addressed his monks and other disciples. One day, on entering the hall, he surveyed it in a moment to see if everyone was present. One monk was absent. And Buddha asked the others, ‘What about him?’ ‘Well, sir, he is sick. He’s staying in his room,’ was the reply.

‘Is there anyone to serve him?’ Buddha asked. ‘No, sir.’

Buddha got up, slowly walked up to the sick monk’s place, took a towel, soaked it in water, squeezed it and washed him and served him. When the monk was asleep, Buddha came out. The other monks were waiting for him. Buddha was about to go away without a word. Some monks asked him, ‘Sir, what about the sermon?’

‘I rendered the sermon,’ he said.


Although a man has not studied a single system of philosophy, although he does not believe in any God, and never has believed, although he has not prayed even once in his whole life, if the simple power of good actions has brought him to that state where he is ready to give up his life and all else for others, he has arrived at the same point to which the religious man will come through his prayers and the philosopher through his knowledge. (Swami Vivekananda)
