In India science and religion are never considered two separate things. All Indian Scriptures talks about science and spirituality at the same platform and these two are never compartmentalized. It is because of this reason we can see that Vedas are not just the Instruction Manuals for Spiritual Practices, but also a vast sea of knowledge pertaining to different fields of science and advance technology.
Failures in life often disappoint us and weaken our belief in self. In the beginning we start to undertake our journey with full zeal and enthusiasm and resort to face all the obstacles in the way to success with a positive outlook.
We promise ourselves that hardships of life will not be the hindrance to our goals and there will not be any shortfall in our efforts to achieve long term and short term goals of our life. With all our ambitions and aspirations, when we face failure at the very first place, it is like all our dreams are broken and lost forever, and inspite of all our efforts to recover from that sudden setback, we feel that negative forces originating from our emotions, are driving us in the entirely opposite direction and are not allowing us to arise and try again to reconstruct our dreams.

The timeless poetry from the mouth of Lord is although the part of the Mahabharata, but is considered as self sufficient Upanishad in itself.
Gita stresses on taming mind for better control over our actions as per Dharma. Mind is one such tool given to mankind free of cost by nature but is worthy of a life time wealth. A crystal clear mind helps one to take better decisions in life leading to all types of success at personal, professional and offcourse spiritual front.
Bhoge rogabhayam kule chyutibhayam vitte nrpaladbhayam,
Mane dainyabhayam bale ripubhayam rupe jaraya bhayam.
Shastre vadibhayam gune khalbhayam kay ekratantadbhayam,
Sarv vastu bhayanvitam bhuvi nranam vairagyamevabhayam.
