Inertia : Wisdom Stimulus 176 : Application of Bhagvad Gita in Management

Lord Krishna in this verse talks about inertia . Now, what is inertia ? . Can stillness which comes from purity, be equated with inertia . Obviously not. It is true that inertia bind a person into ignorance and he can then fall into the grasp of sleep and indolence. At the same time , Inertia deludes and binds fast, any embodied being to less activity . But, then when people are wise , they are also less active . However the cessation of activity, with wise ness is a positive phenomenon, where one choose to act or not to act on based of deep understanding. In case of inertia, one chooses not to act because of ignorance .
