Bhagavad Gita Quote

Chapter III: The Yoga of Action

III.38. DHOOMENAAVRIYATE VAHNIR YATHAADARSHO MALENA CHA;
YATHOLBENAAVRITO GARBHAS TATHAA TENEDAM AAVRITAM.

(Krishna speaking to Arjuna)
'As fire is enveloped by smoke, as a mirror by dust,
and as an embryo by the amnion, so is this enveloped by that.'

III.39. AAVRITAM JNAANAM ETENA JNAANINO NITYAVAIRINAA;
KAAMAROOPENA KAUNTEYA DUSHPOORENAANALENA CHA.
'O Arjuna, wisdom is enveloped by this constant enemy of
the wise in the form of desire, which is unappeasable as fire!'

Daily Quote

Be good. Do good. Serve, love, give, purify, meditate, realise. This is the religion of Siva. This is the religion of the members of the Divine Life Society.

Raja Yoga Selection Number 101, for Monday, August 3, 2015


[from Discourse II: "Sadhana Pada- On Spiritual Disciplines"]
II.42. SAMTOSAD ANUTTAMAH SUKHA-LABHAH
'From contentment comes supreme happiness.'

Commentary:
Man is ever searching for happiness in external objects, but it can
only be attained when the mind is satisfied with what has been allotted
and is no longer looking. When the mind is stilled and contented,
happiness is automatic.

43. LOOK AND FIND ME

Look at the cup of tea,
There you will find me.
Look at the sun,k
There I am.
Look at a flower,
There you wil find me.
Look at a river,
There I am.
Look at the fire,
There you will find me.
