Ref : Students duty to study, and not politics; Teachers duty to teach, and not politics, Today, few teachers and students take stupid lessons from some foolish political parties and leaders, such as Communists, Congress, and stupid bunch; Listen What Swami Vivekananda says -
If we take care of the cause, the effect will take care of itself.
The realization of the ideal is the effect.
The means are the cause: attention to the means, therefore, is the great secret of life.
We also read this in the Gita and learn that we have to work, constantly work with all our power; to put our whole mind in the work, whatever it be, that we are doing.
At the same time, we must not be attached.
That is to say, we must not be drawn away from the work by anything else; still, we must be able to quit the work whenever we like.
If we examine our own lives, we find that the greatest cause of sorrow is this : - we take up something, and put our whole energy on it — perhaps it is a failure and yet we cannot give it up.
We know that it is hurting us, that any further clinging to it is simply bringing misery on us; still, we cannot tear ourselves away from it.
The bee came to sip the honey, but its feet stuck to the honey-pot and it could not get away.
Again and again, we are finding ourselves in that state.
That is the whole secret of existence.
Why are we here?
