A Quote by Bhagavad-Gita on senses, sleep, truth, and understanding

Those who know this truth, whose consciousness is unified, think always, "I am not the doer" While seeing or hearing, touching or smelling; eating, moving about, or sleeping; breathing or speaking, letting go or holding on, even opening or closing the eyes, they understand that these are only the movements of the senses among sense objects.

A Quote by Bhagavad-Gita on anger, belief, body, divinity, fear, selfishness, separation, unity, and attachment

He who knows me as his own divine Self breaks through the belief that he is the body and is not reborn as a separate creature. Such a one is united with me. Delivered from selfish attachment, fear, and anger, filled with me, surrendering themselves to me, purified in the fire of my being, many have reached the state of unity in me.

A Quote by Bhagavad-Gita on cosmology, eternity, heart, separation, spirit, wisdom, world, and worship

In this world there are two orders of being: the perishable, separate creature and the changeless spirit. But beyond these there is another, the supreme Self, the eternal Lord, who enters into the entire cosmos and supports it from within. I am that supreme Self, praised by the scriptures as beyond the changing and the changeless. Those who see in me that supreme Self see truly. They have found the source of all wisdom, . . . and they worship me with all their heart.

A Quote by Bhagavad-Gita on abuse, anger, arrogance, darkness, delusion, destruction, enemies, envy, generosity, gifts, god, greed, happiness, hell, ignorance, mind, pride, purpose, sacrifice, success, violence, and wealth

"I got this today," they say; "tomorrow I shall get that. This wealth is mine, and that will be mine too. I have destroyed my enemies. I shall destroy others too! Am I not like God? I enjoy what I want. I am successful. I am powerful. I am happy. I am rich and well-born. Who is equal to me? I will perform sacrifices and give gifts, and rejoice in my own generosity." This is how they go on, deluded by ignorance. Bound by their greed and entangled in a web of delusion, whirled about by a fragmented mind, they fall into a dark hell. Self-important, obstinate, swept away by the pride of wealth, they ostentatiously perform sacrifices without any regard for their purpose. Egotistical, violent, arrogant, lustful, angry, envious of everyone, they abuse my presence within their own bodies and in the bodies of others.

A Quote by Bhagavad-Gita on death, desires, egotism, immortality, and selfishness

They are forever free who renounce all selfish desires and break away from the ego-cage of "I", "me", and "mine" to be united with the Lord. This is the supreme state. Attain to this, and pass from death to immortality.
