The 9 Rules for Being Human According To The Ancient Sanskrit

One of the oldest ever recorded languages on this planet is the Sanskrit language. The beliefs and the language itself date back thousands of years but they are just as valid now as they were back then. Here are the translated rules with some brief explanation according to their beliefs.

  1. You will receive a body.

It doesn’t matter whether you will like it or not, the body will be yours for the entire period of living.

  1. You will learn lessons.

Your life is a full-time enrolled informal school. Every day you will have an opportunity to learn lessons in this school even though  you will think that they are irrelevant sometimes.

  1. There are no mistakes, only lessons.

In order to grow as a human, you need to experience errors and experiments. The failure is just as important as the success.

  1. A lesson is repeated until it is learned.

You will face the same lesson many times but in different forms. Only when you’ve learned it in those many forms will you be able to proceed to the next lesson.

  1. Learning lessons does not end.

There isn’t a part of life that isn’t filled with lessons. As long as you are alive, there are still lessons to be learned.

  1. “There” is no better than “Here”.

When your there becomes a here, you will obtain a new there that will be better than your here.

  1. Others are merely mirrors of you.

You can’t hate or love something about another person unless it truly reflects to you something you hate or love about yourself.

  1. What you make of your life is up to you.

You contain all of the necessary resources and tools. What you do with them is up to you and your choice.

  1. The answers lie within you.

All of the answers to life’s questions lie within you. Look, listen and trust yourself.
