Consistency: The bridge to connect talent and success

Once upon a time, there were two barbers named Kanu and Manu living in a small village of Gujarat, India. Both of them had a barber shop in their village. Kanu had done a course on hair cutting from the city and was very skilled in hair cutting. While Manu had learnt hair cutting from his father and was comparatively less skilled than Kanu. Despite this, Manu was making more money than Kanu. Kanu was surprised with this and approached a wise scholar in the village to inquire the reason.

Although performing all kinds of actions, they are yogis and masters of all their actions. " - Bhagavad Gita (Chapter - 4, Verse - 18) The above verse seems quite contradictory, but if it is understood and absorbed in day to day lives properly, it can be the solution to many of the modern problems. Ignorance of science of Karma: the cause of sorrow: If any task in the world is to be successfully accomplished, it requires a particular skill. In the same way to live happily is also requires a skill. And that skill taught by Hindu scriptures is Karma Yoga. " योग :  कर्मसु कौशलम् " (Bhagavad Gita - 2.50) which means "Yoga is skill in work."
