A Value like Ahimsa is Universal. It is so because every human being through his or her common sense knows it. Preaching a value, therefore, has no value. But each value is to be assimilated so that it does not get compromised under pressure of greed, pride, infatuation and so on.
This book initiates the process of assimilation of certain important values and healthy attitudes discussed in the Bhagavad Gita. A well-assimilated value becomes part of oneself like even the value of hygiene. Deliberate living of a chosen value is a must to complete the process of assimilation. May this book help the reader grow into one totally acceptable to oneself.
"The Expression of My Life is Just the Expression of My well -Assimilated Value structure. What I do is but an Expression of what is Valuable to me.
For comfort to be enjoyed I must be there to Enjoy them. When I am split with guilt, I tarelyoh Where but with my anxieties, regrets and guilt. When I clearly see this fact, will see the value of applying universal ethical standards to myself.Therefore, a value, universal or situational, is a value for me only when I see the value of the value as valuable to me"
