Good Work done never perishes (by Shiva Kant Jha)

Good Work done never perishes

“ I would end this Part telling you what Krishna had told Arjuna when he had asked Krishna, in the battlefield of Kurukshetra: of what worth is the entire endeavour if it turns out futile in the end. A ‘movement’, or a ‘revolution’ is a march with a mission towards the future. We are scripting our deeds only on the passing moments of the living present. What the Lord told Arjuna is valid in all times as what He said is the very existential truth:

पार्थ न एव इह न अमुत्र विनाशः तस्य विद्यते
न हि कल्याण कृत कः चित् दुर्गतिं तात गच्छति
(‘O, Partha (Arjuna), neither in this life nor hereafter is there destruction for him; for never does anyone who does good, dear friend, tread the path of woe.’ Chapter VI.40)”
