These horses, running behind their subjects, without any control – can they win the battle called ‘life’ with this way of working?

Who should be in charge? While riding in a chariot, who should have the final say? Should it be the chariot, the charioteer, the reigns or the horses! Actually, none of the above! The chariot, charioteer, the horses, all are required to take orders from the rider. He is the one who knows his goal, his destination.

Thoughts (विचार), contemplation(मनन) and concentration(ध्यान) – make it part of life to become honest and efficient रथी.
