Eternal Wisdom and Inspirations from Bhagavad Gita and beyond

Whatever is done without faith,
- whether it is ritual, charity, austerity, or any other act
-- is useless. It has no value here or hereafter.

Bhagavad Gita 17.28




The one who perceives that all works

are done by the powers of Divine
truly understands,
and thus does not consider oneself as the doer.

Bhagavad Gita 13.29

Now please compare the above verse from Gita with the magnificent phrase taught by Muahmmad, the enlightened one:

"La hawla wa la quwwata illa billah"

There is no power of transformation and might except through the Divine.

- Sayings of Prophet Muhammad, blessed be his soul

This phrase is used as chanting after prayer by muslims to bring the consciousness of the Divine and to re-align our mind with the grand mindfulness. The chanting of this phrase is said to have many cures and the least of such cure is worry and distress.

To read a brief, yet beautiful explantion of the phrase, pls visit wahiduddin.net.
