How I Came to Krishna Consciousness | MBA to LBA
It was about 5 years from now when I was desperate to proceed in my academic career. Those days, I was in a very confused state of mind regarding my career and family life. I was trapped in a tough situation in my family. To make the matter worse, the work atmosphere at the office was also not very congenial to me. I was becoming very upset and frustrated as I felt everything was slipping from my grip. I thought, pursuing higher studies might be a solution to all my problems and would give me peace of mind.

Those days, one of my friends was doing PhD, so I thought to seek her advice. She advised me to do MBA and I thought deeply over the matter. To set up my mind properly, I met some people who had pursued MBA. I noticed that although they passed management courses from reputed institutes, they totally failed to manage their own life, work and business problems. So there was definitely some fault or incompleteness in the course. I gave up the thought of doing MBA.

The hollowness of our modern education system became clear to me, by which we only get the information, not the wisdom which will actually give us the strength to cope with the challenging situation of life. I was heartbroken as I couldn't find any ray of hope which will show me the right direction in my life. I bought some motivational books and also went in search of some psychological guidance.

In that scorching summer of my life when I was very thirsty to get some cold water of peace, Krishna came in my life. In May 2016, he drenched my life with the shower of hope and peace. He held my hand and dragged me to Krishna Consciousness in the form of  “Summer Camp” organized by ISKCON Kolkata.

It was like an oasis in the desert, barren struggling of my life. Krishna Consciousness which is a movement started by “Srila A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada” gave me a strong shade over my head and a strong ground under my feet.

From my very childhood, I was familiar with the picture of Srila Prabhupada, as my father used to take us to the Rath Yatra organized by ISKCON Kolkata, yet I didn’t get a complete association then. However, Srila Prabhupada’s dedicated army with “Harinam Sankirtan” rescued me from the ditch, and with the help of “Bhagavad Gita” I am trying to overcome this situation.

The lesson of Bhagavad Gita is the only knowledge through which we can set and manage all the hurdles, problems, cyclones in our life. So I think the course of Bhagavad Gita is the Real Management Course - “Life Business Administration (LBA)”.

To make our life peaceful,  successful and beautiful we must go to this “Bhagavad Gita Course”.

I am grateful with all my heart to Srila Prabhupada, for if it was not for him, then thousands of people like me would have been bereft of this bliss of Krishna Consciousness.
