Excerpts from the Gita

” Do all thou dost for Me! Renounce for Me!
Sacrifice heart and mind and will to Me!
Live in the faith of Me!
In faith of Me All dangers thou shalt vanquish, by My grace,
But, trusting to thyself and heeding not,
Thou can’st but perish!”


“O Bharata! Whenever righteousness declines and unrighteousness becomes powerful, then I Myself come to birth. For the protection of the good, for the destruction of evil-doers, for the sake of firmly establishing righteousness I am born from age to age .”

– Sri Krishna


“Thou seest Me as Time who kills, Time who brings all to doom,
The Slayer Time, Ancient of Days, come hither to consume;
Excepting thee, of all these hosts of hostile chiefs arrayed,
There shines not one shall leave alive the battlefield!”

— Krishna, Chapter 11, verse 32

 Quotes on the Bhagavad Gita

“I read the Gita. Because it is the Eye of God. I sing the Gita. Because it is the Life of God. I live the Gita. Because it is the Soul of God. The Gita is God’s Vision immediate. The Gita is God’s Reality direct.”

– Sri Chinmoy

“In the morning I bathe my intellect in the stupendous and cosmogonal philosophy of the Bhagvat-Geeta, since whose composition years of the gods have elapsed, and in comparison with which our modern world and its literature seem puny and trivial; and I doubt if that philosophy is not to be referred to a previous state of existence, so remote is its sublimity from our conceptions.”

– Henry David Thoreaux

“In summation, the sublime essence of the Bhagavad Gita is that right action, nonattachment to the world and to its sense pleasures, and union with God by the highest yoga of pranayama meditation, learned from an enlightened guru, constitute the royal path to God-attainment.”

– Paramahansa Yogananda, “God Talks With Arjuna”
