Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 2, Verse 2 and 3

श्रीभगवानुवाच |

कुतस्त्वा कश्मलमिदं विषमे समुपस्थितम् |

अनार्यजुष्टमस्वर्ग्यमकीर्तिकरमर्जुन || 2||

क्लैब्यं मा स्म गम: पार्थ नैतत्त्वय्युपपद्यते |

क्षुद्रं हृदयदौर्बल्यं त्यक्त्वोत्तिष्ठ परन्तप || 3||

Translation – “The Supreme Lord said: My dear Arjun, how has this delusion overcome you in this hour of peril? It is not befitting an honorable person. It leads not to the higher abodes, but to disgrace. O Parth, it does not befit you to yield to this unmanliness. Give up such petty weakness of heart and arise, O vanquisher of enemies.”. Lord Shree Krishna makes Arjun uncomfortable about his current state.

We all feel uncomfortable when we are confused because it is not the natural condition of the soul. That feeling of discontentment, if properly channeled, can become a powerful motivation to search for true knowledge. The suitable resolution of doubt helps a person acquire a deeper understanding than before.

Thus, God sometimes deliberately puts a person in turmoil, so that he or she may be forced to search for knowledge to remove the confusion. And when the doubt is finally resolved, that person reaches a higher level of understanding.

All equity investors are currently in this uncomfortable situation. Self-claimed Experts may portray apocalyptic scenario. But no one knew such drastic economic situation due to Corona in advance. All advices, suggesting, expert calls are post event. But primary medicine for all diseases is to make own self brave and confidant. Time heals deepest wounds. Let us not time the crisis but give time to crisis.
