Dear Editor‘From loss of temper comes delusion, and from delusion the loss of memory. From loss of memory comes the ruin of intellect, and from the ruin of intellect one perishes.’-[Gita:2-66] Why so indispensable is the patience in face of mental impulses so that destruction be averted from swallowing the life itself above verse from Gita enlightens us. The cycle of environment is highly disturbed today; and, not to say, most of all by unbridled material consumption. Here too Gita expounds in its own way the importance of patience or self-restrain to be observed- ‘ The cycle of the Universe runs on ‘give and take’, but that who only takes from it without giving back to it, and thus gets to be responsible for breaking this cycle, the life of that self-indulgent is sinful, and useless.'[ Gita:3-12, 3-16] However, much emphasis on observing patience and renunciation makes many holding the notion that Hindu dharma rejects the worldly-pleasure and action in the life. But fact is that Gita preaches for the performing action to even those who have broken through worldly bondage and living in austerity- ‘As the unwise and materialistic act for self-interests, so should wise and detached act with the desire of guiding the humanity’ [Gita:3-25] E.
