Bhagavad Gita Quote

Chapter V: The Yoga of Renunciation of Action

V.6. SANNYAASASTU MAHAABAAHO DUHKHAM AAPTUMA YOGATAH;
YOGAYUKTO MUNIR BRAHMA NA CHIRENAADHIGACCHATI.

(Krishna speaking to Arjuna)
But renunciation, O mighty-armed Arjuna, is hard to
attain without Yoga; the Yoga-harmonised sage proceeds
quickly to Brahman!

V.7. YOGAYUKTO VISHUDDHAATMAA VIJITAATMAA JITENDRIYAH;
SARVABHOOTAATMABHOOTAATMAA KURVANNAPI NA LIPYATE.
He who is devoted to the path of action, whose mind is
quite pure, who has conquered the self, who has subdued his
senses and who has realised his Self as the Self in all beings,
though acting, he is not tainted.

Daily Quote

All are manifestations of the Lord. It is a shameful slur on you if you bear a grudge or ill-will towards anybody.

Weekly Poem

47. WHAT IS GOD?

What is God?
It is hard to tell.
But when I llok at the Ganges,
I know it is God.
When I see the jassamine,
I know it is God.
When I behold the blue sky,
I know it is God.
When I hear the chirping of birds,
I know it is God.
When I taste honey,
I know it is God.
