Prajna Astra
(also known as Prajnastra, Pragnastra, Pragna Astra)

Prajna Astra is a celestial weapon in Hindu mythology which revitalizes the mind and restores the senses. It is often used as a counter in response to Sammohana Astra. In the Mahabharata it is sometimes mentioned as Pragna Astra: (Vana Parva section 20)

"And then, O mighty king, the dome of heaven blazed as with a hundred suns, and, O son of Kunti with one hundred moons, and thousands and ten thousands of stars! And then none could ascertain whether it was day or night, or distinguish the points of the horizon. And, becoming bewildered, I fixed on my bowstring the weapon called Pragnastra. And, O son of Kunti, the weapon went like unto flakes of pure cotton blown away by the winds! And a great fight took place, calculated to make the down on one's body stand on end. And O best of monarchs, having regained, light, I again fought with the enemy!'"

Correct, David. The more gentle with oreselvus we are, and the more relaxed we can be, the higher the quality of work we produce, and the more people we can help. It is about changing habits, which can take practice over time. This gentler way of being in business is new. We have been living in the old ways for so long that the gentler approach of being more loving with oreselvus as we build our business seems foreign, sometimes even impossible. Once we make it a conscious habit, we begin to feel happier, more vibrant, more productive, clearer and more alive. <3
