Mahaabhaarat | Geetaa | Teachings
There are three major problems with every human being -
(1) One is of inadequacy - A person always feel that he is inadequate
or incomplete - he wants more comfort, more wealth, more rights, more knowledge, more
everything, but he never feels satisfied. In other words his desires are never-ending.
While other beings or living creatures do not have these problems, these are the causes of sorrow and discontentment and take him far from God. Since the origin of these problems is directly related to brain given by Bhagavaan to him, these problems cannot be solved generally. It takes really a Herculean effort to achieve that. That is what Geetaa is trying to achieve.
That is why it teaches to be a Sthit-pragya (a detached one) so that a man can restrict his desires (no inadequacy), and be happy what is available to him (no choice)
