Arise, Awake and Stop not till the Goal is reached

Swami Vivekananda

Swami Vivekananda

As per the golden words of Swami Vivekananda, we must arise, awake, and must not stop till the goal is achieved. It means, whenever we start a new activity, we must completely finish it, without leaving it in a half-baked manner. This golden word suits small children those who have just entered into their school. From their young age onwards, parents must motivate their child, by teachings subjects to them. Apart from teaching school subjects, they must have to teach our holy Vedas, Ramayana and Mahabharata, in order to inculcate the essence of our ancient Hinduism.

Those who prepare for competitive exams, must keep on studying the respective subjects, and must appear the exams with full of confidence in their mind. If a person fails in his exam for the first time, he should not lose hope, but must start freshly like the phoenix bird, which is believed to have arisen from the fire, after it was burnt into ashes. With regard to maintaining bhakti on the almighty, we should keep on worshipping him, till our goal is achieved. But our prayers must be reasonable one, and it must melt the almighty.

If we take the examples of the great Panduranga Devotees, Like Meerabai, Janabai and Sakkubai, they have dedicated their entire lives on worshipping Lord Vittala, and in their souls, Lord Vittala was filled up. They didn’t leave their bhakti till their goal is reached. Likewise, while working in our office, we must keep great interest with our work, and must not get boredom till the completion of work.

Ancient kings would bravely fight with their enemy kings, till they achieve victory in the battle field. As per the teachings of Lord Krishna in the Bhagavat Gita, “Always be active, don’t become lazy, do your work with a smile, and think about me while doing your work. Whenever you are unable to do your work, I myself would discharge your duties on your behalf, if you keep utmost faith on me”.
