S ages whose sins have been washed away, whose sense of separateness has vanished, who have subdued themselves, and seek only the welfare of all, come to the Eternal Spirit.

F ix thy mind on Me, devote thyself to Me, sacrifice for Me, surrender to Me, make Me the object of thy aspirations, and thou shalt assuredly become one with Me, Who am thine own Self.

9:34 
cf.‘Only by tireless devotion can I be seen and known . . . He whose every action is done for My sake, to whom I am the final goal, who loves Me only and hates no one – O My dearest son, only he can realize Me!’ (The Bhagavad Gita 11:54-55)

   




I am the same to all beings. I favour none, and I hate none. But those who worship Me devotedly, they live in Me, and I in them. Even the most sinful, if he worship Me with his whole heart, shalt be considered righteous, for he is treading the right path.




Hinduism 7610 | 
9:29-30 

   




O Thou Supremest Self, greater than the Powers of creation, the First Cause, Infinite, the Lord of Lords, the Home of the universe, Imperishable, Being and Not-Being, yet transcending both.

Hinduism 7605 | 
15:15 

   




I have no beginning . . . Whenever spirituality decays and materialism is rampant, then, O Arjuna, I reincarnate Myself! To protect the righteous, to destroy the wicked and to establish the kingdom of God, I am reborn from age to age. . . . Howsoever men try to worship Me, so do I welcome them. By whatever path they travel, it leads to Me at last.




Hinduism 7604 | 
4:6-11 

   




W herever the mind wanders, restless and diffuse in its search for satisfaction without, lead it within; train it to rest in the Self.





   




P leasures conceived in the world of the senses have a beginning and an end and give birth to misery, Arjuna. The wise do not look for happiness in them. But those who overcome the impulses of lust and anger which arise in the body are made whole and live in joy. They find their joy, their rest, and their light completely within themselves. United with the Lord, they attain nirvana in Brahman.





   




T he process of offering is Brahman; that which is offered is Brahman. Brahman offers the sacrifice in the fire of Brahman. Brahman is attained by those who see Brahman in every action.





   




T he wise see that there is action in the midst of inaction and inaction in the midst of action. Their consciousness is unified, and every act is done with complete awareness.





   




T hose who possess this wisdom have equal regard for all. They see the same Self in a spiritual aspirant and an outcaste, in an elephant, a cow, and a dog.





   




T hose who renounce attachment in all their deeds live content in the city of nine gates, the body, as its master. They are not driven to act, nor do they involve others in action.





   




T o those who surrender to Brahman, all selfish attachments are like the leaf of a lotus floating clean and dry in water. Sin cannot touch them.





   




A s the heat of a fire reduces wood to ashes, the fire of knowledge burns to ashes all karma.





   




E ven if you were the most sinful of sinners, Arjuna, you could cross beyond all sin by the raft of spiritual wisdom.





   




A pproach those who have realized the purpose of life and question them with reverence and devotion; they will instruct you in this wisdom.





   




D elivered 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.





   




T hose who know me as their own Divine Self break through the belief that they are the body and are not reborn as separate creatures. Such a one, Arjuna, is united with me.





   




W e do not know which weight is worse to bear our conquering them or their conquering us.





   




M y true being is unborn and changeless. I am the Lord who dwells in every creature. Through the power of my own Maya, I manifest myself in a finite form.





   




Y ou must learn to endure fleeting things they come and go!





   




Y ou and I have passed through many births, Arjuna. You have forgotten, but I remember them all.





   




T he senses are higher than the body, the mind higher than the senses; above the mind is the intellect, and above the intellect is the Atman. Thus, knowing that which is supreme, let the Atman rule the ego. Use your mighty arms to slay the fierce enemy that is selfish desire.





   




A n ignorant man is lost, faithless, and filled with self-doubt; A soul that harbours doubt has no joy, not in this world or the next.





   




T he ignorant work for their own profit, Arjuna; the wise work for the welfare of the world, without thought for themselves.





   




Y ou have the right to work, but never to the fruit of work. You should never engage in action for the sake of reward, nor should you long for inaction. Perform work in this world, Arjuna, as a man established within himself – without selfish attachments, and alike in success and defeat. For yoga is perfect evenness of mind.





   




T hey live in wisdom who see themselves in all and all in them, who have renounced every selfish desire and sense-craving tormenting the heart.





   




T he meaning of Karma is in the intention. The intention behind action is what matters. Those who are motivated only by desire for the fruits of action are miserable, for they are constantly anxious about the results of what they do.





   




T hey 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.





   




W hen meditation is mastered, the mind is unwavering like the flame of a lamp in a windless place.





   




T here are three gates to this self-destructive hell: lust, anger, and greed. Renounce these three.





   




D evout men who are intent thereon see the spirit seated in themselves; but the senseless, whose minds are unformed, see it not.





   




W hatever you do, make it an offering to me – the food you eat, the sacrifices you make, the help you give, even your suffering.





   




H e who is the same to friend and foe, and also in honour and dishonour, who is the same in cold and heat, pleasure and pain, who is wholly free from attachment; To whom praise and blame are equal, who is silent, content with every fortune, home-renouncing, steadfast in mind, and worships Me; that man is dear to me.





   




H e who has neither delight nor aversion, who neither mourns nor desires, who renounces good and evil fortune, and worships Me, is dear to Me.





   




T he man who is guileless, pure, upright, unconcerned, free from distress of mind, who renounces every enterprise and worships Me, is dear to Me.





   




T hose who remember me at the time of death will come to me. Do not doubt this. Whatever occupies the mind at the time of death determines the destination of the dying; always they will tend toward that state of being.





   




H e whom the world troubles not, and who troubles not the world, who is free from the emotions of joy, wrath, and fear, is dear to Me.





   




T hose who worship other Gods with faith and devotion also worship me, Arjuna, even if they do not observe the usual forms. I am the object of all worship, its enjoyer and Lord.





   




H e who hates no single being, is friendly and compassionate, free from self-regard and vanity, the same in good and evil, patient; contented, ever devout, subdued in soul, firm in purpose, fixed on Me in heart and mind, and who worships Me is dear to Me.





   




T he Lord dwells in the hearts of all creatures and whirls them round upon the wheel of Maya. Run to him for refuge with all your strength, and peace profound will be yours through his grace.





   




A nd whenever the mind unsteady and restless strays away from the Spirit, let him ever and forever lead it again to the Spirit. Thus joy supreme comes to the Yogi whose heart is still, whose passions are peace, who is pure from sin, who is one with Brahman, with God. The Yogi who pure from sin ever prays in this harmony of soul soon feels the joy of Eternity, the infinite joy of union with God.





   




W ith a drop of my energy I enter the earth and support all creatures. Through the moon, the vessel of life-giving fluid, I nourish all plants. I enter breathing creatures and dwell within as the life-giving breath. I am the fire in the stomach which digests all food.
