Bhagavad Gita Quotes

  1. Weapons do not cut this inner Soul, fire does not burn it, water does not make it wet, and the wind does not make it dry. The inner Soul cannot be cut, burned, wetted, or dried. It is eternal, all pervading, unchanging, immovable, and primeval.” (2.23-24)
  2. The Soul is neither born nor does it die at any time. It does not come into being, or cease to exist. It is unborn, eternal, permanent, and primeval. The Soul is not destroyed when the body is destroyed.” (2.20)
  3. “No effort is ever lost in selfless welfare service, and there is no adverse effect. Even a little practice of the discipline of selfless service protects one from the great fear of repeated birth and death.” (2.40)
  4. “The wise knows the truth that: “I do nothing at all.” In seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, eating, walking, sleeping, breathing; and speaking, giving, taking, as well as opening and closing the eyes, the wise believes that only the senses are operating upon their objects.” (5.08-09)
  5. “A lamp in a spot sheltered by the Spirit from the wind of desires does not flicker. This simile is used for the subdued mind of a yogi practicing meditation on the Spirit.” – (6.19)
  6. “The dwellers of all the worlds “up to and including the world of the creator” are subject to the miseries of repeated birth and death. But, after attaining the Supreme Self, O Arjuna, one does not take birth again.” (8.16)
