The setting of the Gita
The setting of the Gita is
symbolic of the battlefield of
life, but more importantly, it is
symbolic of the battlefield
within all of us.
Our life is a constant turmoil
between positive and negative
impulses, between the pleasant
and the better, between our
likes and dislikes, between the
good and the bad.

and most importantly, peaceful co-existence with
fellow human beings.
Bhagwat Gita speaks of 2 types of work cultures – Daivi Sampat and Asuri
Daivi work culture ‐ involves fearlessness, purity, self‐control, sacrifice,
straightforwardness, self-denial, calmness, absence of fault‐finding, absence of
greed, gentleness, modesty, absence of envy and pride.
Asuri work culture ‐ involves egoism, delusion, personal desires, improper
performance, work not oriented towards service.

Utilization of available resources:
The first lesson of management science is to choose wisely and
utilize scarce resources optimally.

Krishna's wisdom for his support.

• Select the best resources.
• Utilize the resources optimally.
Detach yourself from the end reward & concentrate on the work
A popular verse of the Gita advises "detachment" from the fruits or results of
actions performed in the course of one's duty. Being dedicated work has to
mean "working for the sake of work, generating excellence for its own sake.“
• Results in quality in work as mind works without fear of the result.

Krishna asked Arjuna to surrender him to Lord. He should not have any doubts
on the existence of the Lord.
