Nitivakyam Day 14


We all want to know the secret to have Luck in our Life. Whatever we possess in life is due to the grace of God and religion. The fruits of religion is what we have in our life today. Then why don’t we have any attraction towards religion. Why don’t we have the heart to donate and give to others? Whatever we have got due to the grace of our religion, are we investing it in doing good or bad? Why don’t we have the heart to do good for others as well?

In order to have LUCK in LIFE there are four things we have to check:

1. Lifestyle:

Have we checked our lifestyle? There is fulfillment at the end of requirement but there will be no satisfaction at the end of desire. When one mobile, TV, car, phone etc is sufficient, why more? Though we have a lot of wealth, how much have we controlled our desires? Why is our lifestyle so expensive? We run when we don’t have money and we run when we have enough money as well.



“Your lifestyle – how you live, eat, emote, and think – determines your health. To prevent disease, you may have to change how you live.”

Advertisements today are targeted towards women and kids as they are insistent on having what they want. If we want to be happy, we will have to change our lifestyle. What is our mentality about this? Our lifestyle will end our wealth.

2. Unwanted Habits:



“Bad habits are like a comfortable bed, easy to get into, but hard to get out of.”

We should know how to neglect unwanted habits for the betterment of our life. We have to say NO to unwanted habits in eating, drinking, sitting, walking and talking. Why have we given such a big position to unwanted habits in our life? These will end our inner strength so we have to control them. If we want to see someone’s happiness in this world we have to see that of a poised person and look at the pain of a devotee. The pain of a devotee brings him closer to God. We have become slaves to advanced technology. This will never bring luck in our life.

“Habit is either the best of servants or the worst of masters”

3. Character:

Character is when we have tears of shame left in our eyes. The shame for family, society and Guru has all come to an end. In India, the dress code of school girls has become very vulgar. Are short dresses a necessity? Girls are openly smoking and drinking. We worship Ram and do friendship with Ravan. Everything has ended in the name of character. Luck never comes from the sky, we have to create luck. Today’s youth has forgotten all shame. Every day new advanced technology is being invented that is putting an end to our shame. We must never neglect shame in our life. We have to save our character.

Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become action. Watch your action, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become your character!

4. Killing Time:

Time is precious. We have to know how to invest and use time properly. We waste time on social networking websites which is of no use.



“Time is free, but it’s priceless. You can’t
own it, but you can use it. You can’t keep
it, but you can spend it. Once you’ve lost it
you can never get it back”

So have Luck in life, we have to change our lifestyle, remove unwanted habits, check our character and use time efficiently.
