Bhagavad Gita Quote

Chapter V: The Yoga of Renunciation of Action

V.8. NAIVA KINCHIT KAROMEETI YUKTO MANYETA TATTWAVIT;
PASHYAN SHRUNVAN SPRISHAN JIGHRAN NASHNAN GACCHAN SWAPAN SHWASAN.

(Krishna speaking to Arjuna)
"I do nothing at all"-thus will the harmonised knower of
Truth think-seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, eating, going,
sleeping, breathing,

V.9. PRALAPAN VISRIJAN GRIHNAN NUNMISHAN NIMISHANNAPI;
INDRIYAANEENDRIYAARTHESHU VARTANTA ITI DHAARAYAN.
Speaking, letting go, seizing, opening and closing the eyes-
convinced that the senses move among the sense-objects.

COMMENTARY: The liberated sage always remains as a witness
of the activities of the senses as he identifies himself with
the Self.

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.
