7 Easy Lessons from the Bhagavad Gita for the Youth

The Bhagavad Gita is one of the most comprehensive religious books ever written in the history of mankind. The meaning of the phrase “Bhagavad Gita” is the song of the Spirit, the song of the Lord. Covering every aspect of life, the book answers every possible question.

It is the scientific handbook of life for once and all including the youth. Perhaps, it has the power to take one individual from spiritual infancy to the heights of perfection without a shadow of a doubt. Contrary to the popular belief, this discourse is not only for the elder citizens but very much relevant for Gen Z and the millennials. If perceived in the right way, each chapter can be resonated with everyone.

The Battle of Everyday

For both the informed and uninformed, Bhagavad Gita is a dialogue between Lord Krishna and Arjuna in the middle of a battlefield.Before the start of the war, Arjuna was in a catch-22 situation as he did not want to harm his own kins to gain power.

In this context, Lord Krishna explained to him that this fight wasn’t just between two cousins, but between a virtuous ruler and an anarchic group. His teachings to Arjuna are considered to be ultimate.

While the youth may not be in the exact situation as Aruna was, there are hundreds of more battles they are confronting in daily life. Mostly, without any guidance! So, reading this spiritual discourse will pave the path to the lost, answer the confused, and wisdom to the young vibrant minds.

Today, we will be talking about 7 life-changing lessons every youth should absorb from the Bhagavad Gita to live a better and purposeful life.

The 7 Life Changing Lessons of Bhagavad Gita

1. Faith Can Move Mountains

Faith Can Move Mountains

Faith, trust, and belief are supreme forces within an individual. When a young mind brims with faith and conviction, s/he holds the power to resist against external causes of danger or fear. If you are someone who is lacking faith in whatever task you take upon, it’s time to retrospect.

Gita will teach that the treasure of the heart is to have unwavering faith. There may be times when retaining faith becomes difficult. However, it is through such instances you need to hold your wits together to do the impossible and achieve the unachievable. Always remember, true growth comes from experiencing the gamut of emotions without abandoning the faith.

2. Live Life Fully

Live Life Fully

As mentioned earlier, your life can be no less than a battlefield. Moreover, you may not win in every battle. And that’s quite OKAY!

Irrespective of the situation, living life fully is the mantra that youth should take from Bhagavad Gita. To live life to the fullest, explore all there is to explore within and without yourself! Take some time and contemplate whether you are playing your part fully?

The essence of a happy life is to accept whatever comes across and play it along. Give yourself to LIFE in the purest and the most disciplined version of yours. It is bound to give you back something amazing, sooner or later.

3. Unravel the Inner Strength

Unravel the Inner Strength

The millennials and Gen Z are characterized by boundless energy and restlessness. This often leads to a chaotic mind hampering inner strength. Bhagavad Gita teaches to unleash the power of inner strength, especially at times of helplessness.

Ever-victorious are those who continually triumph over adverse circumstances by tapping on their inner strength. If you ever feel that, you are alone, wait for a moment, and look inside your soul. A vast universe awaits!

4. Progress is the Rule of the Universe

Progress is the Rule of the Universe

Nothing is permanent. Things and circumstances change. As cliche as it may sound, change is the only constant. However, young fragile minds can’t accept changes.

It is crucial to understand that progress is impossible without change and vice versa. Even if the progress is slow, have patience. A little progress each day adds up to amazing results.

5. Meditate to Find Strength

Meditate to Find Strength

Prominent filmmaker David Lynch once said, “The thing about meditation is, you become more and more you! The Bhagavad Gita taught the same thing 5000 years back.

The constant battle that goes inside the mind can be won over through meditation and yoga. In the 10th chapter (Vibhuti-Vistara-Yoga) of the Bhagavad Gita, it is said that when one meditates miracles happen in life.

Give a chance for miracles to happen with little devotion and mindfulness. Try it!

6. Power of a Mentor

Power of a Mentor

Tell me I forget, teach me I remember.

This is exactly where the role of a mentor comes into the picture. Mentors are the trusted advisors who listen to every unfiltered talk and navigate the mentee to the right path. In Gita, the importance of having a mentor has been highly emphasized.

A mentor doesn’t necessarily mean your teacher or professor. It can be your parents, siblings, or best friend- the one who will always guide you and accept you the way you are without any judgEment.

7. Focus on Work, not Result

Focus on Work, not Result

Tough yet true.

The young generation tends to pay heed more to the results without working much. In Gita, the term “Nishkama Karma” is often used. It means do your deeds without caring about the results. The idea is not to stay unaware but to focus more on work.

Individuals give up on things as they don’t see immediate results. This eventually leads to unproductive occurrences. Therefore, to bring the best in you, act like a true Karmayogi.


Bhagavad Gita is a synthesis of different ideas and solutions for every mood (as the millennials and Gen Z says). An important thing for the readers, living life according to the philosophies of Bhagavad Gita won’t make you a more Hindu or less Christian.

It talks about human struggles, emotions, and acts as evidence of life. So, irrespective of you being an atheist or theist have no relation with the teachings of Bhagavad Gita. The words were, are, and will be applicable to every being for a brighter future!

Hey, wait, if reading is not a habit, don’t overburden yourself to read the Bhagavad Gita. Switch on to Spotify podcasts or YouTube channels and listen to the teachings to unearth the hidden meaning of life and much more.
