One of the rare and little known Suktas of The Vedas , is the Sankalpa Suktam.
Sankalpa means, Right Determination.
The power of determination and auto suggestion play a vital part in ensuring the success of any endeavour.
Though there are various factors determining the results of any action, the individual plays a vital part.
The effort of the individual is not to be assailed by self-doubt or negative thoughts on the performance or the result that may accrue.
The Dhruda or strong determination is required.
If the Determination is Right favourable results will ensue.
The Vedas have a Sukta devoted to this aspect, called Sankalpa Sutkam.
It is traditionally recited before the beginning of any new endeavor, enterprise,Going to work and it is also recited on waking up and before going to bed.
