This Janmashtami, TV actors share their favourite Lord Krishna teaching and why it means so much to them.
Rajesh Kumar: For me, karm kiye ja phal ki chinta na kar is an all-time favourite and yet relevant as the only thing in your hand is the process and not the fruit. Lord Krishna was ahead of his times. He is alive in Geeta. His teachings are forever relevant.
Ansh Bagri: I follow Lord Krishna. I feel connected and used to go to Mathura and used to do parikrama. He followed human Dharm of sticking with what is right in terms of humanity. Mahabharat was fight of right and wrong. He always said there is nothing bigger than work. Lord Krishna respected women always and he was not a flirt but very kind-hearted toward women. Visiting Mathura is always on my list. I feel Lord Krishna’s essence when I visit Mathura. Lord Krishna was human God and real.
Jasmin Bhasin: For one who has conquered his mind, his mind is his best friend. But for the one who has failed to do so, his mind is his greatest enemy. I meditate regularly. Lord Krishna’s words of wisdom are contemporary and people of all generations can relate with them. Krishna was the first one to teach us the value of Karm and Karma. What goes around comes around is a reality.
Ssharad Malhotra: There are three gates to the self-destructive hell: lust, anger and greed. This still holds true in modern times. Lord Krishna has left his inner richness in our hearts and minds. I feel very peaceful when I think of Lord Krishna.
Shashank Vyas: A man is made by his belief, as he believes so he will become. If we have positive thoughts, we will become positive. Lord Krishna teachings are practical and Geeta saar and Karma theory is a reality. It is coincidence my mother name is Geeta and people often call me kanhaiya. Lord Krishna was a perfect balance of mind and heart.
