Some Motivational and Spiritual Insights from Gaur Gopal Das
Das and The Concept of Beauty
The real Beauty according to Das, lies in the soul, and how much a person can be helpful to others. He once said:
In most of his lectures and speeches, he always focuses on the importance of pulling out the best of your soul. “We need to combine Beauty, Intelligence and kindness.”
Das and Success
Another worth mentioning insight is about success:” In order to be successful: you need to work Hard, have a great determination, alongside with patience. You will face challenges & failures that will come along your way. Remember, you need to never give up, till you reach success.”
Das, Decision Making and Choices
Also, Das always motivates people and assists them in dealing with tough decision making they may face. He always says:
The ability to do correct choices in order to live our lives in the correct form that we deserve is a very important subject to Das. He always tries to guide and enlighten people in this matter. Once he said that the journey in an airplane is a sample of a journey of our life, in which the takeoff is beyond the passenger’s control which stands for our birth. Landing is beyond our control as well, and this stands for our death. Turbulences come in the way are always beyond our control, which stands for problems in our life. However, what lies in our hands, is how we choice to spend our journey and react to life’s problems.
He believes that life is between the “two alphabets, B for Birth, and D for Death. We don’t choose our parents, family, nationality, race, ethnicity, religion, look, skin etc..the same applies for the Death we can not choose when, how and where to die. But we have full control over the letter in the middle, C, which stands for CHOICES.
Choices have a great influence on the course of our lives, either positively or negatively. Therefore, Choose well!
He has a very well-said phrase sums the idea of choices as follow; “Being a Male is a matter of Birth, being a man is a matter of Age, Being A gentleman is a matter of choice”.
Gaur Gopal Das Relationships and Social life
In Relationships between couples, friends, colleagues and people in general, Das believes that root of our problems comes from “the gap between Technical Rightness and Practical Rightness, in which Technical Rightness is what actual clearly seen and obvious, while Practical Rightness is what is hidden.”
One of his thoughtful and meaning full advise regarding choosing your spouse or partner is his simple straight forward sentence: “When I is replaced by We, Illness becomes Wellness”, So Whenever you find a person whom you believe will make this phrase comes true, then this person is the right one to spend your life with.
Das and Education System.
Das tries to draw attention towards the education system in India. He believes urgent, immediate and serious changes have to be made. He spreads awareness among people in the society to drive people to act accordingly. The education system focuses on numbers, not talents or improvements, and this has placed a huge burden and great stress over the student’s shoulders. Many of them have gone so far and ended their lives as a result to end the pressure on them.
Das & Self-Discovery.
Gaur Gopal Das believes that inside every one of us is a treasure which no one else can see it, help you to find it, but yourself. Therefore, we need to dig in deep to pull out the treasure within ourselves, and dig-out the dirt of self-doubt, until our Self-Discovery is in place.
Das & The Concept of Wisdom.
Das has pictured the Wisdom as an alarm, that rings to every one of us. However, people’s reactions towards this alarm differ. There are people whom Das refers to as SLEEPERS. This category of people never notices the alarm of wisdom no matter how loud it is. They will never change, or struggle to reach a better successful life.
Another group of people, whom Das refers to as SNEEZERS. They hear the alarm of wisdom, but they always postpone their plans till later. A third category is the FALLERS who wake up and respond to the wisdom call. They start changing their lives to be better, but they will soon, stop their attempts and fall back to sleep.
The fourth category is the WAKERS, who actually wake up, start living, planning for their better life and reach their success.
