Our acts define the stock’s worth
Bhagwad Gita is one of the finest teachers of finance especially in today’s world where spirituality seems to have lost its meaning, hence, the materialistic world. Those who have had the opportunity of going through the text of the holy book (even at least once) must have surely realized that the universe is a very intricate structure.
According to the Bhagwad Gita, we all possess a part of the supreme authority within us and therefore the Almighty is ever present around us.
Anything that happens in the world bears some significance and is pre-planned by God. It is ‘He’ who controls the universe including our lives.
In a way, the universe could be equated to an organization controlled by a supreme authority where every human being is a member who works as per the role/s assigned to him.
Similarly, the vast universe can also play parallel to the bourses/stock markets in the country and all the humans can be the participatory companies. The stock markets are regulated by SEBI and on its framed policies they work, exactly what the function of the Supreme body is—to work as a regulator.
In case any of the participatory companies does not adhere to the pre-set rules and works in fraudulent ways, it is bound to be punished in time by the regulator (though sometimes it takes some time, the punishment is bound to come its way sooner or later).
In addition, each company is divided into contributory shares equal to its worth and issued to the investors in the market. Each trading day the entire stock market plays according to the rise or fall in the shares’ worth.
Now, this is similar to what we humans do in everyday life. Our acts in the day-to-day life decide what would be our worth in another person’s eyes and hence decide our financial worth at the end of the day.
Therefore, in order to augment the value of shares so that each one of us earns more, we should abide by the rules of the Almighty completely.
Although it may take lots of hard work and challenges to grow on a particular path, the long-term unhindered growth is a surety for all of us and the world around.
