A Quote by Bhagavad-Gita on hinduism, buddhism, non-duality, reality, and spirituality

Content with getting what arrives of itself. Passed beyond the pairs, free from envy, not attached to success or failure. Even acting, he is not bound. He is recognized as eternally free, who neither loathes nor craves; For he that is freed from the pairs, is easily freed from conflict.

A Quote by Bhagavad-Gita on death, meditation, practice, service, teachers, wisdom, and path

Some realize the Self within them through the practice of meditation, some by the path of wisdom, and others by selfless service. Others may not know these paths; but hearing and following the instructions of an illumined teacher, they too go beyond death.

A Quote by Bhagavad-Gita on darkness, goals, heart, knowledge, and separation

. . . the beginningless Brahman, . . . can be called neither being nor nonbeing. It is both near and far, both within and without every creature; it moves and is unmoving. In its subtlety it is beyond comprehension. It is indivisible, yet appears divided in separate creatures. Know it to be the creator, the preserver, and the destroyer. Dwelling in every heart, it is beyond darkness. It is called the light of lights, the object and goal of knowledge, and knowledge itself.

A Quote by Bhagavad-Gita on control, dedication, desires, fear, goals, god, heart, joy, meditation, mind, peace, and senses

Make your mind one-pointed in meditation, and your heart will be purified. . . . With all fears dissolved in the peace of the Self and all desires dedicated to Brahman, controlling the mind and fixing it on me (God), sit in meditation with me as your only goal. With senses and mind constantly controlled through meditation, united with the Self within, an aspirant attains nirvana, the state of abiding joy and peace in me.

A Quote by Bhagavad-Gita on food, heart, pain, sacrifice, suffering, and yoga

Whatever you do, make it an offering to me - the food you eat, the sacrifices you make, the help you give, even your suffering. In this way you will be freed from the bondage of karma, and from its results both pleasant and painful. Then, firm in renunciation and yoga, with your heart free, you will come to me.
