The theme of Man’s duty to fight and struggle clearly permeates the words of Shri Krishna and our Imam Sultan Muhammad Shah.
We all experience the first struggle at the moment of birth, when we gasp for air and learn to breathe on our own. At the same time, the body, responsible for gathering life experiences, pledges to serve as a vessel for our organs, and commits to fighting for life and struggling against death. The mind, responsible for reason, pledges to serve as a vessel for our memories, and commits to fighting for logic and struggling against irrationality. And the heart, responsible for emotion, pledges to serve as a vessel for our sensations, and commits to fighting for love and against fear.
