How to be victorious / Haar Chale Gurumukh jag Jeeta

The easiest way to be victorious in this world is to lose.

Sounds strange?  But it’s true.

To be happy, to be victorious, we have to lose lot of things; such as arrogance, jealousy, ego, excessive pride and anger.

We can never win anyone by being jealous or showing arrogance and anger towards them.

By using other people for our selfish motives, we eventually push them away.
We can win them by ‘losing selfishness’.

 “While among the apes leadership was earned by how much one could grab, among the primitive bands of early man, how much one gave away determined whether others would follow him and listen to what he has to say.” (From World History page 14)

Parents earn respect and love by sacrificing their own comfort and even ambitions for the happiness of their children.

The great emperors and warriors in the past history may have won many lands and peoples but their victory was limited to only the land and people’s bodies; not the hearts.

But those, who gave up everything and sacrificed their lives for the welfare of the masses, won the hearts and minds of millions for ever.

Losing is the key to victory.

Haar Chale Gurumukh jag Jeeta (Bhai Gurudas ji)

Let’s try to ‘lose’ the arrogance, pride and jealousy, and be victorious.
