WHO are you? It is one of the biggest puzzles of personality.
The same question is turned 360 degrees in the Bhagavad Gita, but the question, whether pointed at you or me, is still reminiscent of a universal enquiry of the self.
According to the Hindu Scriptures, you are the soul or ATMA that eventually seeks the PARAMATMA or the Supersoul, which invariably resides in each of us. Let’s cast a new light on this and why it’s relevant to know who you really are.
With self-enquiry comes enlightenment and a broad view of how the world works and how you are a part of it. Lord Krishna simply says that if you are not happy, society will not seem pleased, nor will anyone else around you.
In other words, if you, the CEO who runs the company, are not happy with yourself, you cannot keep your employees happy either. Therefore, enquiry into the self ‘Who am I’ or ‘Who are you’ eventually leads to our search for happiness. Always seek to find yourself, and you will discover how smooth the world around you runs.
