5 Answers from GitaGPT that Provide Best Career Advice for Everyone

Now finding solutions to your problems is easy with GitaGPT. It appears to be the era of chatbots. Sukuru Sai Vineet, a software developer for Google India, has developed Gita GPT, a GPT-3-based application that leverages the words of the Bhagavad Gita to offer answers to one's life's problems.

The Bhagwad Geeta is a historic Hindu book that Lord Krishna narrated to the warrior-prince Arjuna when they were fighting on the Kurukshetra battlefield. Even today, several academics and even industry veterans still cite this text. Here is a text that has endured the test of time, whether it is for purely religious or strict professional direction.

These verses and my explanations merely barely touch on the immense knowledge contained in them; to properly understand it, one must reflect and keep these verses in a little compartment of their laptop bag at work. Only then will they become truly applicable and have an impact on their daily lives. Otherwise, they are only phrases that evoke distant lectures from a different era.


Question 1: What to do when hard work fails?

Answer : 

Karmanye vadhika raste,

Ma phaleshu kadachana;

ma karma phala he tur bhuh,

ma te sangvasta karmani

“To action alone hast thou a right and never at all to its fruits; let not the fruits of action be thy motive; neither let there be in thee any attachment to inaction.”

There is no alternative for hard work and hard work always pays off. Here, we learn the important lesson of letting go of the outcomes and not letting them control how we feel about our job. While this does not imply that we must become martyrs, it does indicate that frequently the end goal can become so distracting. This separation from the outcome also shields us from the inevitable disappointment we will experience at some point in our working careers.


Question 2: What kind of quality should one have?


Duhkhesv anudvignamanah

sukhesu vigatasprhah

vita raga bhaya krodhah

sthitadhir munir ucyate


“A person whose mind is unperturbed by sorrow,

who does not crave pleasures, and who is

completely free from attachment, fear, and anger,

is called Sthita-prajna - a sage of steady intellect.”


Here Lord Krishna talks about an incredible leadership quality in one of my favourite verses, which is also one of the most difficult to put into practise. While this should be practiced in all aspects of one's life, it is particularly important to develop Sthita-prajna—steadiness and unwavering—at work. This quality of composure enables us to view the circumstance as a situation rather than a problem, whether it be a professional failure, unfair office politics, or uncooperative team members. When our thoughts are clear, we may make rational decisions while putting our emotions to one side (not reacting).


Question 3: How to grow in professional life?


tad viddhi praṇipātena

paripraśnena sevayā

upadekṣyanti te jñānaṁ

jñāninas tattva-darśinaḥ

“Just try to learn the truth by approaching a spiritual master. The self-realized soul can impart knowledge unto you because he has seen the truth.”

Here, I understand the 'master' as a professional mentor and also a way of saying don't stop learning - ever. To advance in our careers, we should look for a mentor who is similarly concerned with our development. Look for someone who is already on the path, has already succeeded where you wish to, and exemplifies the values and abilities that are important to you. Don't forget to mentor someone as a favour to them.


Question 4: How do our thoughts affect our worklife? 

Answer : 

Rajas tamaś cābhibhūya

sattvaḿ bhavati bhārata

rajaḥ sattvaḿ tamaś caiva

tamaḥ sattvaḿ rajas tathā


“Sometimes the mode of goodness becomes prominent, defeating the modes of passion and ignorance, O son of Bharata. Sometimes the mode of passion defeats goodness and ignorance, and at other times ignorance defeats goodness and passion. In this way there is always competition for supremacy.”

Three qualities—Sattva, Rajas, and Tamas—are discussed in the Geeta. They predominate in various ways in each of us and direct our thoughts and behaviours. It makes me think of the famous saying:

"Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people."

Good leaders and staff members should build good attitudes (Sattva), gradually moving from Tamasic attitudes (laziness, lethargy) to Rajasic attitudes (highly dynamic and action-oriented). Effective CEOs and great leaders are fundamentally Sattvic - unwavering and temperless. They are motivated by ideas bigger than themselves, such as the success of their team, business, organization, and customers. They are visionary thinkers who have an effect on society as their influence rises.

Even as we enter the office today, you will be able to tell if your colleague who manages events is restless at his desk, eager to take action, or dominated by Rajasic inclinations as required by his job. See the department head as he quietly assigns tasks, calmly yet energetically formulating ideas for his company's expansion, getting closer to the Sattvic attributes of calm-action.

The decisions we make, such as how we respond to failure and success, determine how far along in our careers we will progress. Do we allow the temptations of power and authority to sway us or do we preserve mental equilibrium? Should we consider the wider picture when we report to work each day? Are we looking at personal development or just bigger bank accounts? This advice is merely the metaphoric top of the iceberg.


Question 5 : How can I find the balance between my own personal growth and the growth of my relationships?

Answer :

The Bhagavad Gita teaches that we should balance our responsibilities and our own personal growth. We should not be too attached to our responsibilities and we should not be too attached to our own personal growth. We should be like a lotus flower, which is attached to the mud but not to the water. We should be attached to our responsibilities but not to the results. We should pursue our own personal growth but not be attached to it.

These were the questions that I asked GitaGPT and was impressed by its responses. I believe the insights I gained can be beneficial for your professional growth.
