Chapter VIII: The Yoga of the Indestructible Brahman

SRI BHAGAVAAN UVAACHA:
VIII.3. AKSHARAM BRAHMA PARAMAM SWABHAAVO'DHYAATMAMUCHYATE;
BHOOTABHAAVODBHAVAKARO VISARGAH KARMASAMJNITAH.

The Blessed Lord(Krishna) said(to Arjuna):
Brahman is the Imperishable, the Supreme; His essential nature is
called Self-knowledge; the offering (to the gods) which causes
existence and manifestation of beings and which also sustains them
is called action.

VIII.4. ADHIBHOOTAM KSHARO BHAAVAH PURUSHASHCHAADHIDAIVATAM;
ADHIYAJNO'HAMEVAATRA DEHE DEHABHRITAAM VARA.
Adhibhuta (knowledge of the elements) pertains to My perishable
Nature, and the Purusha or soul is the Adhidaiva; I alone am the
Adhiyajna here in this body, O best among the embodied (men)!

Weekly Poem

25. THE DAWN OF A NEW LIFE

All my sorrow is over,
My heart is now brimming up with joy;
Peace has now entered my soul.
All doubts, fears and delusion have vanished.
I was suddenly lifted out of myself.
There was dawn of a new life.
I experienced the inner world of Reality.
The Unseen filled my soul and heart.
I entered the vast, luminous Silence.
I was bathed in a flood of effulgence ineffable.
I came on the hidden spring of all life.
I am the Light that illumines the entire universe.
