Today’s post idea came from a cousin who has his own tailoring business and today was 28th anniversary. I was telling him to start teaching once a week at a community place and earn good karma.
Vedas has laid down 4 stages also know as ashrams of life which is relevant even in today’s world and tells us how to live life .
- Brahamcharyashram – 0 to 24 age. This time is the student life where you learn and learn and learn.
- Grihsthashram – 24 to 48 . This time you start earning , start family , raise kids.
- Vanaprasthashram – 48 to 72. This time you start second career in today’s term. Like you can start teaching what you worked on in 2nd stage . If you were housewife then you start showing , advising like cooking to next generation. Or something that was your dream, start working on it. Slowly let go of 2nd stage work.
- Sannyasa- 72 to end – continue 3rd stage and live simple life .
As ppl reach near to 50, start questioning what’s next ? Start planning your next career , inning that you can count on for another 20-30 years . You may make less money but something you enjoy and have fun with it . I have been thinking too.
Hope this helps !
