There was a time in Kurukshetra when Arjun was confused he loses his all hope without even fight, he was needed guidance, so he turned to his charioteer, Lord Krishna, Lord Krishna and consequently this Bhagavad-Gita was spoken. Not only Arjuna, but every one of us is full of anxieties because of this material existence
Bhagavad-Gita is a scripture that has the answers to all our material and problems. Arjuna was into ignorance on the Battlefield of Kurukshetra just to question Lord Krishna about the problems of life so that the Lord could explain them for the benefit of future generations of human beings and chalk out the plan of life.
- Attraction and repulsion for sense objects are felt by embodied beings, but one should not fall under the control of senses and sense objects because they are stumbling blocks on the path of self-realization.
- Whatever happened, happened for the good. Whatever is happening, is happening for the good. Whatever will happen, will also happen for the good.
- The soul is neither born, and nor does it die
- Man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he is.
- One who sees inaction in action, and action in inaction, is intelligent among men, and he is in the transcendental position, although engaged in all sorts of activities.
- when you have thus learned the truth, you will know that all living beings are but part of Me—and that they are in Me, and are Mine.
- Those who are free from anger and all material desires, who are self-realized, self-disciplined and constantly endeavoring for perfection, are assured of liberation in the Supreme in the very near future.
- For him who has conquered the mind, the mind is the best of friends; but for one who has failed to do so, his very mind will be the greatest enemy.
- The whole cosmic order is under Me. By My will it is manifested again and again, and by My will it is annihilated at the end.
- He who has let go of hatred who treats all beings with kindness and compassion, who is always serene, unmoved by pain or pleasure, free of the “I” and “mine,” self-controlled, firm and patient, his whole mind focused on me — that is the man I love best.
