Abstract


People are living stress ridden lives, be it stress arising from occupations, career, relationships or finance. Thus they are suffering from various psychosomatic problems because of increasing stressors in life. With the advancement of psychological treatment and planning, we have many kinds of therapies available such as psychotherapy, behavior therapy, cognitive behavior therapy etc. But, our ancient scriptures like the Bhagwad Gita have already described our human day to day worries and how a man should tackle day to day problems. The Bhagwad Gita is a key to all worries and anxieties which was spoken by Lord Krishna in the battle of Kuruksehtra- Mahabharata. Bhagwad Gita shows practical and real life applications of ways to cope with day to day stressors humans face in their day to day life. This paper emphasizes basic understanding of the principles of the Bhagwad Gita and its application in day to day life as an effective tool for management and coping of stress.
