New Delhi: Bhagavad Gita is a part of the great Hindu epic Mahabharata.

The holy scripture is set in a narrative framework of a dialogue between Pandava prince Arjuna and his guide and charioteer Lord Krishna.

Considered to be a doctrine of universal truth, Bhagavad Gita has long been influencing people not only in India but around the world also.

The Bhagavad Gita teaches us various important principles that relate to work, life, religion, philosophy and spirituality.

India TV brings to you 10 lessons which we, human, should learn from Bhagavad Gita:

1. We came to this world empty handed. We have made everything over here, be it relations, money, love or respect. We cannot take anything with us when we die. Everything would be left over here.

2. World is perishable and whoever comes to this world surely has to go one day. Soul can never be destroyed. Always remember you are a soul not a body. Death is just the passing of the soul from the material world to the spirit realm.

3. A truth can never be destroyed. One should not be afraid of doing good.

4. Whatever happened was good, whatever is happening is good and what all will happen in the future will be good.

5. Work is of utmost importance and one must work with dedication without always worrying about results.

6. It talks a lot about meditation. Meditation is considered extremely helpful for inner peace and 'sadhna'.

7. Things may not be the same, the way they used to be. Things and circumstances change. We should neither expect people, nor surroundings, not even society to be same. They all change with time.

8. Desires come and go, but you should remain a dispassionate witness, simply watching and enjoying the show. Desires should not bother a person.

9. It tells us that God is always with us and around us no matter what we are doing.

10. Ill feelings towards other living beings is the cause of man's inner destruction. It must be avoided.
