Rarely have some ancient books rung so much to truth to humanity as Bhagwat Gita does. It is one of the must relevant spiritual texts even in these modern times. The best thing about it that regardless of times it still makes so much sense.Recording the incidents of Mahabharata it gives us the most valuable of lessons in life. Here are some quotes from the spiritual text that we think has the power to change your life ! Have a look ( the quotes are mere english translations of the original pieces, for reader convenience ).
1. About Non Attachment To The Action
“Abandon all the attachment to the results of action and attain supreme peace”. Well that is something to be cherished and paid attention to.
2. An Interpretation On Life Path
“On this path, effort never goes to waste, and there is no failure. Even a little effort towards spiritual awareness will protect you from the greatest fear.” Precisely something our generation can learn from.
3. About Perceiving Others
“They live in wisdom who see themselves in all and all in them. who have renounced every selfish desire and sense craving tormenting the heart”.
4. About Materialism
“Pleasures conceived in the world of the senses have a beginning and an end and give birth to misery.” According to Bhagwat Geeta, desire for continuous materialistic stimulation is the root cause of misery. So one must learn to accept circumstances and live at peace with all ups and downs.
5. About Empathy
Easily one of the best quotes from Bhagwat Geeta : “when a person responds to joys and sorrows of others, as if they were his own, he has attained the highest state of spiritual union”.
6. About Knowledge And Mindfulness
“better indeed is knowledge than mechanical practice. better than knowledge is meditation.” Something so subtle but if understood fully has worth it’s weight in gold !
7. About The Three States Of Mind
“calmness, gentleness, silence, self restraint and purity : these three are the disciplines of the mind”
8. About Karma And Intention
” the meaning of karma is in the intention. the intention behind action is what matters.” Priceless indeed !
9. The Best Quote About Fear
” fear not what is not real, never was and never will be. what is real always was and cannot be destroyed” Interpretation : Nothing real can be destroyed, nothing unreal exists !!
10. About Trusting
“whatever happened, happened for the good. whatever is happening is happening for the good. whatever will happen, will happen for the good.” And therefore we understand that there is no point in regretting our past as everything happens in divine order.
11. About Goals
“we’re kept from our goal not by obstacles. but by a clear path to a lesser goal.” That explains if you fail to attain something, there is something even better coming !
