11 Yudhisthira

12 The bewilderment of Maharaj Yudhistir over the sufferings at Kurukshetra are completely negated by the great authority Bhismadev. Bhisma wanted to impress upon Maharaj Yudhisthir that since time immemorial no one, including demigods like Lord Brahma & Lord Shiva, could ascertain the real plan of the Lord. So what can we understand about it? It is useless to even inquire about it. The best policy is to simply abide by the orders of the Lord without argument. Prabhupada Purport SB

13 “I maintain, O Yudhisthir, this is all within the plan of the Lord. Accepting the inconceivable plan of the Lord, you must follow it. You are now the appointed administrative head, and, My Lord, you should now take care of the subjects who are rendered helpless.” Bhisma SB

14 The Lord does not give us strength to face tomorrow’s problems today. He gives us strength to face today’s problems today.

16 If Krishna has given you life, will he not also give you food & drink? If He gave the greater thing, will He not also give the lesser? If He gave you the body, will He not also give clothes? If a father gives basketball court, will he not give basketball?

17  Nityo nitayanam cetanas cetanam  One supplies all needs to the many  If he supplies animals will He not supply humans  Mom feeds the cats, will she not also feed the kids..if father takes care of family car, will he not take care of his kids?

25 Controlling the Mind “ For one who has conquered the mind, he has attained tranquility. For him the mind is the best of friends, but for one who has failed to control the mind, it will be his greatest enemy.” Gita 6/7 “ For one who has conquered the mind, he has attained tranquility. For him the mind is the best of friends, but for one who has failed to control the mind, it will be his greatest enemy.” Gita 6/7

26 “Long did I toil & knew no earthly rest, Far did I roam & found no certain home: At last I sought them in His sheltering breast Who opens his arms & bids the weary come: With him I found a home, a rest divine, & I since then am his, & he is mine. John Quarles

27 When worry comes knocking at the door He will protect you with His peace. What's got you worried? finances? the economy? your health? your marriage relationship? your kids? your career? What makes you anxious, what raises the stress level in your life? Krishna’s alternative to dealing with stress is to "Throw the whole weight of your concern on Krishna because He considers you His personal concern." Give it to Him.
