Young minds get enlightened about man-making and nation-building

Students of Apeejay School, Saket attend informative session on the teachings of Shrimad Bhagavad Gita.



The main idea of the Karma yoga as per the Shrimad Bhagavad Gita is that one should work without attachment  – that is, a man should do his work without having any desire. We experience happiness and sorrow in life only because of our desire to satisfy our senses. But this happiness and sorrow are temporary, that’s why we don’t even need to be affected by them.

To guide young minds about the same through shlokas of Shrimad Bhagavad Gita, Apeejay School, Saket recently organised a special ‘Gita Varta’ session for the students of classes 6 to 8.

Dr A.K Bhatt, Deputy Director of Education, Zone-23, District South, graced the occasion as the Special Guest. The speaker, Mr Arvind, enlightened the students about man-making and nation-building. He recited shlokas and narrated instances from Shrimad Bhagwat Gita.

Further, Dr Bhatt interacted with the students and shared Gita’s teachings and their meaning. The interactive session with the students made the series spirited and lively.

The session also highlighted different ways of practicing on how to be happy and unaffected by temporary happenings. One of them is concentration as it helps in increasing mental strength and stamina. With the help of this, one is able to control one’s internal and external senses. Meditation is another process that helps in striking balances and strengthens our inner powers and energies. Lastly, prayer is to help achieve the object of desire, whether it is mental clarity or a certain goal. Prayer helps in attaining maturity to become a worthy recipient of spiritual knowledge. Wisdom teaches identity with this nature and adoration and helps one discover freedom and happiness, the nature of the Self.

At the informative event, a student of Class 7 B, Nevan Dutta said, “Listening to the esteemed speakers was a wonderful experience. They stressed on the importance of hard work in life and focused on maintaining a good body posture while conducting our daily affairs. I am definitely going to imbibe it in my life.”

Another student, Devangee Deka of class 8 A expressed, “I learned a lot from the session and was even enlightened about the importance of knowledge and the ability to distinguish between right and wrong. The session also highlighted the teachings of Lord Krishna and how we can imbibe them in our daily life.”
