“Atal or Vitthal means that which is specially still.
Your body is Panduranga. It is made up of the five elements.
The soul (atma) is Vitthala.
Vitthala, who is still.
The one who does not move, but moves others.
The one who is still.
And the one who is the base or root.
This is called Vithhala.”
— Sri Sri Ravi Shankar
Likewise we have matter & spirit. Science & Spirituality.
We need soft skills to excel in the world of matter and life skills or spiritual knowledge to excel in matters of the spirit.
Like a bird flies on two wings, one needs both for holistic development.
Like the statue of Krishna, one leg in the material and one slightly in the air, representing the mystical existence, on this auspicious occasion of Ashadhi Ekadashi and World Skill Day, let’s pledge to develop our skills and Achieve Consistent Excellence (ACE) in being Pandurang in the outer world and Vitthala in the inner world!
🌺🌺 Wishing everyone Happy Ashadi Ekadashi & abundance of Skills 🌺🌺
