In the middle of a battlefield, Arjuna, the great warrior was struck with the dilemma of how to battle his own kin; his relatives, his teacher and the head of his family. Bhagavad Gita, is the sacred conversation between Arjuna and his charioteer which silenced the ever worrying mind of Arjuna. The philosophy of life shared by the Lord has become one of the most inspirational texts. Whether religious or not, whether spiritual or not, these pearls of wisdom are sure to find a home in your head and heart.
You have the right to action, but, not to the fruits of your action
Choose to live your destiny imperfectly rather than imitating somebody else’s life perfectly
No one who does good work will ever come to a bad end, either here or in the world to come
It is Nature that causes all movement. Deluded by the ego, some harbor the perception that says “I did it”
When meditation is mastered, the mind is unwavering, like the flame of a lamp in a windless place
Strive constantly to serve the welfare of the world; by devotion to selfless work one attains the supreme goal of life.
Spread over 18 chapter and more than 700 verses, the Gita leaves behind a message of love, service, devotion, action and much more. A text that inspires every mind in ways one can’t even fathom.
