Important questions for person who wants to improve himself

Important questions for person who wants to improve himself

Questions and answers

You cannot get the right answers unless you ask the right questions.

Lie to me.

Question and answers play a key role in the theoretical knowledge of oneself and the world. Questions and answers consist of the cognitive part of work on oneself, which is a key work for understanding oneself. When we think about ourselves, loved ones, about circumstances and the rest – we ask ourselves a question and try to get an answer to it. The scope of the questions may be different, as well as the direction. But to get an answer, you need to ask questions correctly.

Correctly asking questions means correctly formulating the question, making it possible to get a clear and understandable answer. A person must be in the right frame of mind when he asks a question. If a person really wants to get an answer, he should be attentive to himself and to the source of the answer. It happens that we ask questions not in order to get an answer, but in order to test a person or show our knowledge. In fact, such questions are useless and harmful to dialogue and relations with a person. Indeed, at such moments, we are not listening to the interlocutor, but are preparing the next question or some kind of counterargument, waiting for our turn to speak. This form of questions cannot be useful or good.

Success in theory depends on understanding the correct answers, and success in practice depends on the implementation of these answers. If we do not have sufficient knowledge and act at random – it is very difficult to call the correct course of action. The realization of the knowledge contained in the answers received by a person is a method of transforming personality and character. Achieving results with the right answers is a matter of time and effort.

What questions should I ask myself?

Any intelligent person should ask himself fundamental questions. You can’t answer them stereotyped or memorized, as well-read people are used to doing it. They must be passed through the heart and then the answers to the questions will be alive and bring good to the person.

If we simply memorize one answer to a specific question, then knowledge begins to feel dry, lifeless and hard. This greatly undermines our desire to follow the path. It is necessary to deeply understand and try to approach the question and answer from different angles. Such an analysis will allow not only to understand your ignorance, but also to gain more experience in the process of finding the answer to the question.

When we carefully ask ourselves the most important questions, we will find a huge opportunity for reflection, which will give us good results. The correct answer to the most important question can change a person’s life for the better, give him meaning and motivation to act and live. Many answers bring peace, harmony and happiness. However, the more complex the question, the greater the reward for answering it.

Questions to ask yourself:

Who am I?
What is happiness?
What do I want?
Why am I living?
What is death? What will happen after death?
Why am I scared?
What am I suffering for?
Does God exist?

Who is God?
What is the most important thing in my life?
What is my purpose?
What am I ready to become better?

These are the cornerstones of human existence. These important questions should be considered more often than others. Answers to such questions should be carefully sought. Great work gives great results, and if we sacrifice the whole for the sake of the fragment, we lose both the fragment and the whole. Thus, it is important to maintain an understanding of the issue and not be too concerned with details.

Do not rush to answer them, these questions are not so simple that asking them for the first time you can definitely answer them. And if these questions do not arise for the first time, then we should look at them in a new way and sincerely answer them. Such an answer would be beneficial.

Do not rush to answer them, these questions are not so simple that asking them for the first time you can definitely answer them. And if these questions do not arise for the first time, then we should look at them in a new way and sincerely answer them. Such an answer would be beneficial.

The path of self-knowledge is to find key answers that can change our lives. Some people struggle to get up early in the morning, not quite understanding what they will do this morning. As a result, their aspiration fades, as the key answer was not received: “For what?”

The correct answers will generate enthusiasm and desire to become better in us. They will give new opportunities and forces for their implementation. Therefore, it is important to carefully ask yourself questions and always be aware of what we are acting for. If we act with higher motives, we should be aware that we are committed to higher activities. Otherwise, it will become a heavy burdensome ceremony or slogan of our life, which prevents us from living peacefully.

How and where to look for answers?

We must look for answers from reliable sources and pass them through ourselves. You should be aware of your level, understand your nature and feelings that arise when in contact with a particular knowledge. Sometimes, gaining knowledge, we can feel very good, although outwardly it seems to us that such knowledge is difficult to apply. Sometimes, receiving practical advice that can bring us some good, everything inside us begins to protest. These are important signals of how our intuition reacts to certain things. When we feel a protest or a sense of immunity of information, this does not necessarily mean that this information is harmful. It also happens that the time for this knowledge has not yet come.


Answers help us move forward, and the lack of correct answers stops our progress. Sometimes, not understanding ourselves, we begin to go the way intended not for us. Getting on the path of error, we move away from our goal and go to failure. A clear understanding of the answers allows a person to always be vigilant, not to miss the opportunity to take a step forward and keep balance. Good luck finding answers to your questions.

Dharma – the eternal path of the living being

Dharma – the eternal path of the living being

Dharma

If you were interested in Eastern philosophy, then you should have heard the word “Dharma”, used in different meanings. This word seems one-sided, but it has many meanings, which we will analyze and combine this concept into one definition, as far as possible. To understand this word will be extremely useful for those who want to understand the important points of practical philosophy.

Dharma – duty

In this understanding, dharma is the duty of man. This debt is predetermined before its birth. The fulfillment of such a duty is the main task of man. The fulfillment of such a duty leads one to happiness in all aspects of life. Those who follow their dharma achieve perfection.

Krishna speaks about this in the Bhagavad Gita in two places: 3.8 and 18.45.

Perform your prescribed duty, for action is better than inaction. A man cannot even maintain his physical body without work.

By following his qualities of work, every man can become perfect. Now please hear from Me how this can be done.

In the following verses, He explains that any person performing his duties can achieve perfection by worshiping the Supreme Lord. He also explains:

It is far better to discharge one’s prescribed duties, even though they may be faulty, than another’s duties. Destruction in the course of performing one’s own duty is better than engaging in another’s duties, for to follow another’s path is dangerous.

Bhagavad-Gita. 3.35

However, it also states that any activity has a flaw. Therefore, it is forbidden to refuse any activity if it is not sinful, under the pretext of its imperfection. However, such an activity must be consistent with the nature of man, his dharma.

In the comments, Srila Prabhupada explains that: killing in war, cunning during trade, serving a bad master who gives the wrong orders — such flaws are found in the activities of a person who, with all this, should not refuse this kind of activity.

I repeat: murder in war, not in peace, cunning during trade, not in everyday life, and so on. It is necessary to learn to see the line between a permitted activity and an unauthorized activity. This requires knowledge.

Perfection man achieves from the performance of their duties. Perfection gives a person the opportunity to find all the benefits he needs: abundance, happiness, love, wealth and everything else. But perfection is different for everyone: one needs to be incredibly strong and courageous, another needs to be the wisest and so on.

Dharmo Rakshati Rakshitah – protect your dharma and your dharma will protect you.

Everyone has their own perfection. And the duties from which perfection comes are also different for everyone. There are certain types of human psychophysical nature that give him a set of responsibilities. These duties are different for each person and are performed in accordance with the time, place and circumstance.

The rulers of different countries rule differently, fulfilling their obligations in accordance with necessity. Also, any person should know what to do, how to do it, and even better so that he knows more and when to do it. Responsibilities are a way of life that a person must lead. Understanding their duties and performing them in a timely manner, a person is able to fulfill them fully.

It is also a series of things that he needs to do: the mother must take care of the child, care for her husband, and the trader must watch the prices, buy and sell, advertise the goods. Every person has a lot of things to do. From this comes all the diversity of labor in human society.

The Сhaitanya-charitamrita also states that it is the duty of all to take care of the welfare of all sentient beings through their wealth, reason, speech and action.

Nonviolence, truthfulness, honesty, desire for the happiness and welfare of all others and freedom from lust, anger and greed constitute duties for all members of society.

Shrimad-Bhagavatam 11.17.21

However, the ultimate goal of all sacred texts comes down to the highest duty of all living beings — devotional service to the Supreme Lord. It is said that the Supreme Lord – the owner of all wealth, pleasure, happiness, knowledge, virtues and other goods, and therefore striving to receive these material and spiritual goods – should strive to serve Him. In India, rich businessmen dedicate weekends to serving in temples: they wash floors, dishes, and carry food to get the opportunity to faithfully serve the Lord. Dharma is a duty.

Dharma is an activity.

Now specifically about individual activities. In total there are 4 human nature and their corresponding activities. This is stated in the Bhagavad-Gita and Srimad-Bhagavatam:

Brahmanas, ksatriyas, vaisyas and sudras are distinguished by their qualities of work, O chastiser of the enemy, in accordance with the modes of nature.

Peacefulness, self-control, austerity, purity, tolerance, honesty, wisdom, knowledge, and religiousness-these are the qualities by which the brahmanas work.

Heroism, power, determination, resourcefulness, courage in battle, generosity, and leadership are the qualities of work for the ksatriyas.

Farming, cattle raising and business are the qualities of work for the vaisyas, and for the sudras there is labor and service to others.

Bhagavad-Gita. 18.41-44.

Brahman – knowledge holder

Dharma Brahman: perform religious rites, teach people to preach, advice, stories and own example of correct life. To educate people directly is to take as disciples. Do research, both scientific and philosophical. Brahmins perform the role of teachers, ministers, priests, priests, scholars, researchers. Intellectual work.
Develop knowledge and humility.

Kshatriy – Warrior

Dharma Kshatriya – to protect, provide everything necessary, care and rule over his people, support the Brahmins and respects their advice. Fight, lead and organize people, take part in competitions and win them, improve physical abilities, perform austerity, public service. Administrative, administrative and organizational work. Battle and fight.
Develop courage and calm.

Vaishya – merchant

Dharma Vaisyas – to trade, raise animals, engage in agriculture and crafts, engage in charity, earn money and increase material wealth. Labor aimed at making a profit, commercial direction.
To develop generosity and selflessness.

Sudra – servant

Dharma sudra – serve others, engage in physical labor. In the modern world also engaged in creativity and crafts.
Develop dedication and hard work.

In the majority, very few people perform an activity that suits its nature. Psychophysical nature is fixed from birth. You can, of course, instill in a person some kind of love for knowledge, an interest. But he doesn’t compare with the innate talent of spending hours, from childhood, on books and exploring everything. No interest can be concealed as natural inclinations.

If you suppress them or try to “retrain” a child, then you can spoil the fate of a person very much. There are masters who are engaged in the favorite craft get a lot of money, self-taught. It was just on enthusiasm that we developed such abilities and became experts from innate talent.

Dharma – way of life

According to the Vedic knowledge that we are now considering, addressing the topic of Dharma, there are 4 lifestyles.

Brahmacharya – disciple

Brahmacharya – young students. They study in special educational institutions – gurkulah, where not only knowledge is invested in them, but they also place great emphasis on the development of morality, talents, abilities and virtues. Brahmacharyas refrain from sexual intercourse, serve the teacher and receive knowledge.

Education was free and lasted in different ways – from 10 to 20 years. However, at the end of the training, a large donation should have been given to the guru — what kind of student family could afford. The youngest age for admission to the gurkul is 5-7 years old, at 25 years old, the maximum, the training ends and the student must decide whether to remain as a monk apprentice or start a grihastha family life.

Grihastha – the head of the family

Grhastha – family life. After training, the student who decides to start a family life returns home, where he is selected a suitable bride. After the magnificent wedding ceremonies, a young family man begins a family life and making money, in accordance with the innate nature – traders began to trade, engage in crafts, soldiers entered the army or public service, priests began to perform the duties of priests or teachers.

Raising children, doing charity and economic activities, visiting holy places, cultivating a pure consciousness in oneself are the duties of a grihastha. Grhastha lasts about 30-40 years. Upon reaching 45-60 years, the head of the family went into a renounced way of life. The mother was transferred to the care of the eldest son, who became the owner of all property and the head of the family.

Vanaprasha – Hermit

Vanaprasha is a renounced way of life. A renounced lifestyle means settling in an ashram, wandering, or living in a forest or mountains. In the mountains or in the forest, a person indulged in austerities, clearing his mind of material desires and curbing his mind.

In the case of living in the forest, a person eats the roots and fruits, which themselves come to him. If a person wanders, he lives the life of a sadhu, a saint, and lives on the alms given to him by the grihasthas. When living in a monastery, one engages in devotional service and prepares to become a sannyasi.

Sannyasi – preacher

Sannyasi is a wandering preacher. Sannyasis become young brahmacharies who wish to remain in the gurkula, grhasthas who are disillusioned with family life and vanaprastha. Sannyas means that a person devotes the rest of his life to preaching or otherwise serving the Supreme Lord. Such a person abandons the property and, with a minimum set of necessary items, sends to preach and spread knowledge, devoting the rest of his life to devotional service.

Dharma – religion

The concept of dharma-religion can denote two types of religion: karma yoga and sanatana-dharma.

Karma-yoga

Karma yoga is religiosity aimed at achieving the 4 goals of life: Kama (pleasure), artha (well-being), dharma (duty) and moksha (liberation). From this point of view, religion is only a regulating principle in enjoyment and a means for achieving material enjoyment and abundance.

Performing ceremonies such as weddings, burials, prayers, sacrifices, funerals, and so on. Following a wide range of prescriptions and rules, as well as the worship of deities. All this is directed more towards the material side of life – for getting something: worthy sons, wealth, health, success in earning and so on.

This is a materialistic religion that we can observe everywhere. The main idea of this religion is: “God is omnipotent, which means he can punish or reward me, so I’d rather serve him.” This mercenary ministry, although it transcends the absence of ministry, is far from pure devotional service.

The main engine of such a religion is fear and desire. Fear of punishment and desire for rewards. In this case, God is just another master who can very painfully punish disobedience. Such a view is found everywhere and is a consequence of universal human ignorance, which subjugates everything for deliverance from suffering and the acquisition of pleasures.

Sanatana-dharma

Sanatana-Dharma is an eternal religion — it is devotional service to God. It is an eternal religion because the subject of service is not a person, but the soul that carries this service from life to life.

In other words, this kind of religion is not related to the temporary body of a person, but interacts directly with the soul. Since the soul is eternal and immortal, the reward of such a ministry are also eternal and immortal, as they relate directly to the soul.

Sanatana Dharma is a method of bhakti yoga, devotional service. Sanatana-dharma is an exclusively spiritual type of activity, although it does not deny economic, political and social activity, but all this must be subordinated to the highest goal – Krishna.

The submission of all activities to the Supreme Lord, complete surrender and submission to Him, as well as the rejection of matter as the goal of existence, is Sanata-Dharma – the eternal religion, the religion of the living soul, which serves its Creator – Bhagavan.

Dharma – destination

Each person has a series of events that should happen in his life. This may be the consequences of past actions or a pre-selected mission. A mission can be very large-scale, and maybe even quite small, although sometimes without small events that are almost not noticeable in a causal relationship, large ones would not have happened. An example of purpose is a specific task in a person’s life, without fulfilling which a person feels acute dissatisfaction and dissatisfaction with life.

In this sense, dharma appears as fate – a person must fulfill something – this is his purpose and duty. In case of refusal of debt – he is mistaken, which will lead him to a worse outcome. Krishna speaks about this to the great warrior Arjuna, who needed to accept the battle, but who was seized with compassion for his relatives, friends and mentors, against whom he would have to fight:

O Krsna, maintainer of the people, I have heard by disciplic succession that those who destroy family traditions dwell always in hell. Alas, how strange it is that we are preparing to commit greatly sinful acts, driven by the desire to enjoy royal happiness. I would consider it better for the sons of Dhrtarastra to kill me unarmed and unresisting, rather than fight with them.

Sanjaya said: Arjuna, having thus spoken on the battlefield, cast aside his bow and arrows and sat down on the chariot, his mind overwhelmed with grief.

Then Krishna reminded him of his duty as a warrior:

Sanjaya said: Seeing Arjuna full of compassion and very sorrowful, his eyes brimming with tears, Madhusudana, Krsna, spoke the following words.

The Supreme Person [Bhagavan] said: My dear Arjuna, how have these impurities come upon you? They are not at all befitting a man who knows the progressive values of life. They do not lead to higher planets, but to infamy.

O son of Prtha, do not yield to this degrading impotence. It does not become you. Give up such petty weakness of heart and arise, O chastiser of the enemy.

Fate and choice

The phrase: “ They do not lead to higher planets, but to infamy” means a lot in the context of spiritual life and understanding of real renunciation and surrender to your Dharma and the Lord. Arjuna’s Dharma was in battle, the Lord instructed him:

Therefore get up and prepare to fight. After conquering your enemies you will enjoy a flourishing kingdom. They are already put to death by My arrangement, and you, O Savyasacin, can be but an instmment in the fight.

Destiny means to be an instrument in the hands of the Lord. If the tool refuses to work, it is considered broken and they either try to repair it or throw it away. If a person is trying to “fix” a difficult millstone test, he will wait until he recognizes his fate and accepts it.

Everyone has his own millstone, Jesus said, “Everyone has his own cross” – this means that everyone has his own destiny and his own burden of trials. The second option is when the instrument is recognized as so inoperative that it is thrown out. In this case, a person comes to a disappointing outcome of life in the form of a voluntary renunciation of it – suicide.

What happens to a warrior who works as a porter? In addition to a life that does not correspond to his nature, he gets an acute sense of dissatisfaction, depression, and total disappointment in a life that seeks to score something. Most often alcohol. In this way, decent people who refuse to fulfill their duty do not come to higher planets, but to infamy.

Dharma – way

If we combine all this, then we will get that Dharma is an individual way of a person that he has to go through in order to understand himself, to fulfill his destiny and to benefit the whole society. If a person sincerely wants to develop, he must understand that gold is purified only through the flame. And diamonds arise only under pressure. Hardened steel breaks the usual. Difficulties harden.

There are many metaphors, but the meaning is one – it will be hard and the stronger the desire to fulfill your dharma, the more success there will be, but the more you will have to suffer in order to achieve the desired consistency, which will be the image of the ideal yourself. For the sake of happiness is to work hard, because this is the most honest exchange – happiness to work. Honest deal simply does not exist.

Varna – how to define your varna and destination?

Varna – how to define your varna and destination?

Varna

Varna is the definition of a certain psychotype of a person, according to which a certain activity will be more suitable for him.

In total there are 4 types of Varna:

Brahmins are scholar.

Kshatriyas are warriors.

Vaishyas are businessmen.

Sudras are workers.

This system has a hierarchy: Brahmin-Kshatriya-Vaishya-Sudra.

Varna or the psychotype of man is innate nature. That is, it is predetermined in advance. Therefore, in order to understand your varna, it will be important to analyze your whole life: who did you want to become in childhood, what qualities did you most clearly show, what role did you take among your peers, what did you do and how did you build relationships?

It is important to understand that a person’s varna can be mixed. In other words, a person may contain signs of several, most often two, varn. For example, ksatriya-sudra or brahman-vaishya. Thus, the qualities of two varnas will manifest themselves in his life. This is neither good nor bad, it just is. Of course, it is always better to strive for evolution and try to show the qualities of the highest varna, but you should not break yourself to disgust.

It is also important to ask yourself a few important questions: how would you like to work, how would you like to earn, which lifestyle would suit you best, etc. Varna is determined by the qualities of a person:

Brahmanas, ksatriyas, vaisyas and sudras are distinguished by their qualities of work, O chastiser of the enemy, in accordance with the modes of nature.

Bhagavad Gita 18.41

The quality of various varn

Different psycho-types manifest different qualities of character when they are in action. This predetermines the area of their labor.

Peacefulness, self-control, austerity, purity, tolerance, honesty, wisdom, knowledge, and religiousness-these are the qualities by which the brahmanas work.

Heroism, power, determination, resourcefulness, courage in battle, generosity, and leadership are the qualities of work for the ksatriyas.

Farming, cattle raising and business are the qualities of work for the vaisyas, and for the sudras there is labor and service to others.

Bhagavad Gita 18.42-44.

Thus, the desire to engage in activities that correspond to the qualities of a particular psycho-type will also be a confirmation of the definition of a person’s varna. The question here is not in profit, power or convenience, but in the inner comfort. Someone more pleasant to serve others, helping and providing comfort, someone to earn money in various ways, someone to lead, manage and overcome, and someone to comprehend knowledge and pass them on to others.

It is important to remove some patterns that are imposed on us from the outside and just start to understand our nature, ourselves and our place in life.

Follow another’s path is dangerous

Bhagavad-Gita. 3.35

Qualities are best manifested in communicating with others and building relationships. But they are best revealed in the most critical moments of life. At such moments, a person is forced to use all his qualities in the brightest manifestation and the nature of the person himself becomes immediately apparent.

Manifestation of Varna in various circumstances

At the time of material difficulties, the brahman will turn to knowledge, the ksatriya to his own powers or to the support of the brahmanas, the vaishya to relations and money, and the sudras to work.

Brahmans are characterized by satisfaction, detachment from material wealth, striving for truth, mercy, a natural tendency to improve their being, curiosity, intellectual and analytical skills, as well as high skills in acquiring and transmitting knowledge.

Kshatriya is characterized by determination, courage, resilience, durability, pride, generosity, honor, desire for fame and power, desire for leadership and a spirit of rivalry, as well as strong self-discipline, strong-willed character and desire to protect the weak.

Vaishye is characterized by the ability and desire to earn, a soft heart,strong activity in business, attachment to children, the desire to start various kinds of communication, sociability, openness, quickness of mind and ability to adapt, the ability to withstand stress and difficulties for a long time. As well as the pursuit of beauty and purity, tidiness.

Sudram is characterized by diligence, reliability, simplicity, attentiveness to duties, helpfulness, patience in work, endurance, lack of desire to occupy leadership positions or to fight for supremacy. As well as a high skill of manual labor, the ability to create and the inclination to help others.

Brahmins strive to receive, understand and impart knowledge, kshatriyas lead, vaisyas earn, and sudras work. These are natural manifestations of qualities in different areas of activity.

Brahmins rely on wisdom and intelligence, kshatriyas – on their own strength, vaisyas – on intuition and understanding, and sudras – on their abilities.

In childhood, brahmanas, most often singles, kshatriyas take leading positions, vaisyas make a large number of friends among all, and sudras are the majority and occupy various positions.

Brahman will act guided by the concepts of “right and wrong”, ksatriy will act in order to gain superiority, success, power, vaishya will strive to acquire material benefits and arrange life for himself and his children, and Shudr will try to build a stable, comfortable life with simple joys.

Varna – lifestyle

Varna will define a general way of life, a way of communication, a type of activity, a way to state with the world, goals, talents and the whole environment of a person. Varnas is understood in combination of practice with theory, if you know certain boundaries of various types of activities, then you are able to determine your psycho-type by engaging in certain activities. But without an active experience of self-comprehension, both in activity and in the inner life, it is impossible to fully understand yourself.

The natural sign of self-understanding is relief, lightness, a feeling of light inside, joy and the desire to engage in your activities disinterestedly. The desire to live a certain way in accordance with your varna. That is, understanding yourself gives you an understanding of your place. This generates in the heart a great endowment and a sense of great gain.

Understanding yourself

However, people often mistakenly identify themselves with this or that psychotype, both under the influence of upbringing and under the influence of other people and their way of life. The profession and the environment of a person do not define his psycho-type, but the psycho-type is manifested in the selection of a certain environment and a certain profession.

Understanding your varna will lead a person to the ability to fulfill his mission, his dharma. Honestly fulfilling his duty, a person can hope to achieve all his goals, including excellence and happiness.

Warrior’s purpose – fighting. What does it mean to be a warrior?

Warrior’s purpose – fighting. What does it mean to be a warrior?

Warrior’s purpose

The word kshatriya (warrior) itself consists of two words: kshat and trayate. Kshat is “harm” and trayate is “liberation”. Thus, the word warrior carries the meaning of the liberator from danger, harm and all sorts of attacks, whether it is war or cataclysm. The warrior’s purpose is to protect weaker people from all kinds of dangers with the help of their strength and intelligence.

A warrior must fight for justice and try to adhere to a specific set of rules so as not to harm those whom he protects.

Heroism, power, determination, resourcefulness, courage in battle, generosity, and leadership are the qualities of work for the ksatriyas.

Bhagavad-Gita. 18.43

Born to be a warrior

A warrior (kshatriya) is the congenital nature of personality. Warrior can not be one who is not a warrior and it can not be faked. Either you are a warrior by nature, or you are not a warrior. Having assumed the warrior’s way, a person who does not have the nature of a warrior, is likely to break on it.

People who born with the warrior’s purpose often differ from their peers by physical indicators, have good health, increased activity, high intelligence and often aggressiveness if the energy is not directed in the right direction.

For a warrior, superiority, power, strength and respect are in the first place in outer life. The warrior is committed to these indicators. The desire to be in the first place can result in both exploits and heroism, as well as crimes, depending on how such a person was raised.

The strengths of such a person are justice, dignity, firmness, endurance, dedication and courage. They also have increased physical activity, because they can not without physical exertion. They also differ in independence, straightness, resistance to stress and willpower – these are neutral qualities that can both help and hinder a soldier on the way, depending on the direction that such a person has chosen.

Negative qualities of such people are pride, aggressiveness, rudeness and exactingness. Such qualities are often found in people with the nature of a warrior, but they should be offset by good education and work on themselves.

Warrior’s qualities

Valor and courage.

In wartime, the use of this quality is obvious. But even in peacetime, courage and valor are necessary for the performance of duty and the restoration of justice. To protect their honor, to protect the weak, to defend their principles, prowess is necessary.

Strength and durability

Warrior lives differently than others. He sets big goals and achieves them, despite the severities. On the path of very high goals, durability is extremely important. On the way to the goal, we often encounter difficulties, look for workarounds, change roads, but warriors are used to overcoming difficulties, making the game from what ordinary people give up.

Fearlessness.

The most distinctive quality of a warrior is fearlessness. Often, due to the manifestation of this quality, they may seem unnecessarily independent or unattainable. After all, a person who is not afraid to look less humane. The feeling of fear is either not inherent in them, or is successfully overcome by their will. For them, there is simply no way to go back from a sense of fear — this is unacceptable for them.

Even being in the most unfavorable situation, the warrior will go further. He is not amenable to fear. Thus, a warrior can meet both a triumphant success and a dizzying fall. This comes from the inability to admit one’s own inconsistency.

Resourcefulness

Warriors are accustomed to rely in all matters on their own strength. Theory is replaced by practice, and knowledge is replaced by resourcefulness.

Warriors are accustomed to rely in all matters on their own strength. Theory is replaced by practice, and knowledge is replaced by resourcefulness. They are intellectual, but too direct and not flexible enough to act according to knowledge. For this reason, ingenuity is an innate tool that allows you to find ways that are invisible to others. Warriors are pioneers, researchers and leaders because of this quality.

Generosity

The warrior’s generosity comes from his patronizing attitude toward others. From a sense of need to take responsibility and help others in case of trouble. The mind of a warrior allows him not to become attached to pleasures and to be magnanimous both to friends and to enemies. Than the warrior earns his fame and honor.

Warriors often occupy high positions in society, in companies and among people. Occupying high positions, having certain advantages, a warrior must learn generosity. Generosity for the warrior has several paramount values:

It makes him giving, which allows him to occupy a higher position in the eyes of others and earn the respect of society, which often helps in business;

Generosity teaches not to become attached to riches and not to amass them unnecessarily. If a warrior is attached to riches, then his path of a warrior ends and the path of a rich man begins, which will actually kill a warrior. Warrior can be rich. But his wealth serves his purposes, and not he serves his wealth.

A generous man has many friends and few enemies. Allies for the warrior is an important indicator that his path is not only successful for him, but also useful to those around him.

Asceticism

Often a warrior suffers hardship, as his way is difficult. This is not a path that implies quiet, comfort and stability. Today, a warrior can rule the kingdom, and yesterday he wandered through the mountains.

So the ability to endure hardships, to be able to endure feelings of hunger and thirst, resistance to heat and cold are necessary qualities for a warrior. Asceticism is not only the ability to endure inconvenience, but also the limitation of oneself in what prevents one from moving towards the goal.

Mercy

This quality is more commonly referred to as “compassion,” but mercy has a more positive meaning. Compassionate, you can be to weak and defeated enemies, but merciful to all. The strength of a warrior gives him the opportunity not only to make his life successful, but also to improve society a lot and make happier other people.

Merciful conquers the hearts of others and this allows people to lead. If a warrior is cruel, it will be hard for him to follow the path, because often the path lies in defeating other people without resorting to violence. The ultimate victory is a victory without a fight, wrapping the enemy in a friend, which cannot be done without mercy.

Cheerfulness and susceptibility to despondency

When difficulties are overtaken by a warrior, he not only remains calm, he goes to meet them. After this, the difficulties already begin to be afraid of the warrior and run away from him. With ordinary people, the opposite is true – they run away from problems, and problems run after them.

A warrior should not only be able to overcome difficulties, but also do it cheerfully and absolutely not be susceptible to such types of despondency as: regret, grief, doubts, fears, apathy, laziness. In this way, a warrior overcomes difficulties and sets an example for others how to live. Legendary warriors teach by example how to live.

Honesty

Or principled. Honesty allows you to be fair and clean from lies. Lying to a warrior means that he cannot defeat something and he has to resort to lies. But a lie always does a disservice. In the beginning she gives, and then takes her whole life.

A warrior is always free from lies, due to the fact that he is not afraid to be himself and does not commit acts that he would have to hide. Such honesty in front of themselves and others gives the ability not to become entangled in oneself and to be as free as possible.

The warrior is reasonable , but it is very important for him to listen to the opinion of wiser people. By accepting their help and assisting them, he will be able to quickly overcome obstacles in an honest way – through cooperation.

Because a wise adviser was with any successful king, and often great warriors turned to the wise men for advice, where they gained the necessary support.

The main thing is that pride and excessive own authority should not prevent the warrior from missing a worthy person. Due to the case of extreme pride, many have lost the ability and strength to fulfill the warrior’s purpose.

Warrior’s soul flourishes in battle

The first thing a warrior must do is fight. In peacetime – a peaceful battle. An undeveloped warrior must fight for development, a developed warrior must fight for the idea, justice, or protection of the weak and unprotected people.

If a warrior fights with dignity – he achieves all goals, but if he sets himself petty, small goals – he becomes an ordinary person. The harder the challenge for a warrior, the more enthusiastic the awakening of the challenge. The bigger the beast – the greater the glory. The challenge must be worthy and be a blessing to all.

If a warrior simply sets a goal to harm someone, this is the path of the criminal, not the warrior. A warrior can achieve any goals, both peacefully and by force, but experienced warriors know that the best victory is victory without a fight.

The duty of a warrior in battle and this battle must be worthy. The battle against injustice, the battle against evil and the violation of the present order, as well as that which violates the safety of people. This is his mission.

Warriors are excellent in high government positions, the posts of rulers, military and other responsible positions, from where they have the tools and power to set high ideals and justice through strict control.

With power and qualities, a warrior can change the world. And it is better that he has a high goal that ignites his soul and makes him get up early in the morning and go on his way. Only such a life can make a warrior happy and contented.

Otherwise, it will fade, and the warrior’s purpose will remain for him something distant and unimportant that we make a person with such a character unhappy.


The warrior’s purpose is to protect from danger, primarily from the danger that a warrior himself can cause.

A warrior is a congenital type of people, but this does not mean superiority from birth. The warrior’s purpose obliges him to discharge his duty resolutely and energetically. Having defined his duty, having set himself a goal and having developed the necessary qualities in himself, the soldier should achieve the goal.

There is no chance of losing a warrior who has all the qualities, has a decent environment and sincerely seeks to improve the world, being ready for various difficulties. A warrior must fight – it is his duty, and without battle the warrior dies even before the battle. There is always a place for battle, you just need to find it.
