Bhagvad Gita for Tiger

People born in India could hardly relate to golf back then when Tiger was roaring in the woods on PGA tour. An unmatched champion competing only with himself at one point referring to the Canadian open shot.

I have seen him play life and admire the concentration level, unfazed by all means, determined to win till the point of theoretical possibility.The year of 2000 was magical for him, a legend in the making him.

None knew what he did off the field and it never mattered. Rather, nobody bothered.

Its like the warrior, his goal is to achieve on the battlefield.

Hence, what happend of-late to his personal life should be none of concern of any of his fans. It has happened to the best and it takes courage to admit to anything of the sort he has done. The whole golfing community awaits his accentuated performance of highest delivery.

The nail in the coffin has been struck with he deciding not to play golf for indefinite period. Now, that is not only loss to game of golf; but challenging his privy is a matter of what we have become of society. If all his fans, the sports lover love the game of golf, we can let him settle those dispute on his own. He knows best, he understand the situation, he and only the direct concerned are aware of the facts.

It shame to make it a public gimmick and make a Champion fall from his pinnacle and drop his armor.

As the Bhagvad Gita Says,

akirtim capi bhutani
kathayisyanti te 'vyayam
sambhavitasya cakirtir
maranad atiricyate
People will always speak of your infamy, and for one who has been
honored, dishonor is worse than death.

karmany evadhikaras te
ma phalesu kadacana
ma karma-phala-hetur bhur
ma te sango 'stv akarmani
You have a right to perform your prescribed duty, but you are not
entitled to the fruits of action. Never consider yourself to be the
cause of the results of your activities, and never be attached to not
doing your duty.

niyatam kuru karma tvam
karma jyayo hy akarmanah
sarira-yatrapi ca te
na prasiddhyed akarmanah
Perform your prescribed duty, for action is better than inaction. A man
cannot even maintain his physical body without work.

naiva tasya krtenartho
nakrteneha kascana
na casya sarva-bhutesu
kascid artha-vyapasrayah
A self-realized man has no purpose to fulfill in the discharge of his
prescribed duties, nor has he any reason not to perform such work. Nor
has he any need to depend on any other living being.

tasmat sarvesu kalesu
mam anusmara yudhya ca
mayy arpita-mano-buddhir
mam evaisyasy asamsayah
"Therefore, Arjuna, you should always think of Me, and at the same time
you should continue your prescribed duty and fight. With your mind and
activities always fixed on Me and everything engaged in Me, you will
attain to Me without any doubt."

Thus, Woods please take the to the TEE whack it hard for all the condor, albatross, eagle, birdie and at least par in hole to fill all the bogeys of golfing green of life.

!!Golf awaits the Tiger of the Green Woods!!
