Many people know that Saraswathi (Saraswati) is the Goddess of Learning. Learning of course is important. On google you will find a lot of articles which say “what i learnt from Warren Buffet”, “what I learnt from Peter Lynch” or what I learnt from Rakesh Jhunjhunwala” or “what I learnt from Charles Munger” or “What I learnt from Vallabh Bhansali”. Good learning is always a nice thing, but is it enough?
The role of the Guru is very much underplayed in this day and age. Really sad. Parents talk so disparagingly about teachers that kids are convinced (by the time they are in class 7) that teachers are teaching in schools and colleges because they did not get a better job elsewhere. SO THEY ARE ROTTING TEACHING ….and have no great career ahead of them.
Having said that, let us look at the learning process from our mythology point of view……
Many people know that Hanuman is the Guru according to Hindu mythology (for the very philosophically minded, Hanuman caused the Atma (Sita) to join the Parmatma (Ram) – and that is the essence of Ramayana. So you need a Guru to teach you from the learnings of all the great people mentioned above. However is that enough?
Many people know – and many others may not know – that Parvati (Uma) is the Hindu Goddess of Wisdom. Wisdom is about doing what you know. This is the crucial link. Training, Learning is all fine – but for it to translate into action, you need wisdom. That is the crux.
So knowing that compounding creates wealth, living a simple life gives peace, tobacco free, alcohol free, stress free living gives peace is not enough.
Seeking a simple life, doing a simple sip (and sitting tight during turbulent times), having a term insurance, one credit card, IS ABOUT DOING all that you know. That will give you nirvana. So as Nike says, Just Do it.
