Modern Self help and Ancient Vedic Wisdom


We all have seen the modern self-help industry with a lot of splendid content blooming the most in this age of social media and the internet. Most of us are definitely actively involved in consuming self- improvement content  or reading trending books. We have learned something from each one of the content and  the self-help gurus that we have come across.I too have learned a lot.

But what we should be aware of is that there are  a lot of exaggerations, false content, overly optimistic, unrealistic and contradictory statements.It has a lot of limitations for bringing out  internal change and queries that we are not convinced about.

For any true internal revolution I believe everyone should give a fair try for learning ancient vedic wisdom as I found out it  to be more richer and nobler.It was imparted by such masters who lived the way they preached unlike todays’ modern gurus who are opposite of what they preach.

Ancient vedic wisdom  is above doubt because it was not a commercialized wisdom, it  is more concise and precise.It teaches us not only how to live but to leave the world also.It may sound pessimistic but it is  far better than those that sound optimistic but cannot help deal with the really big  problems of life like  disease,ageing and death.

So it’s really worth trying them out.To explore I recommend “Bhagavad Gita As It Is”  by AC Bhaktivedanta Swami Srila Prabhupada as a starter!
