Why do some people have a better memory? Why are some people more intelligent than others?
A person may have a good memory, but machines and computers have a better memory. To
have a better memory than others is not important. It is important that we have
more love, compassion, understanding, and dedication to life. It is nice to have
a good memory, but what is more important is love, compassion, dedication and
helping the poor or less fortunate.
Everybody can do these things. Everybody has been equally given these feelings. They don't need to have a good
memory, good looks, or even wealth. What
we really need is given to us by God. What we don't need we tend to make important and then we feel depressed,
competitive and look down upon others. The Gita will teach us how to
look upon everything properly and not to have false values.
