Brief wisdom of THE BHAGAWAD GITA  is one of the clearest and most comprehensive summaries of the perennial philosophy ever to have been done. Such is the obvious teaching of this sacred book. It is composed of the beautiful flowers of spiritual truths as collected from the voluminous Upanishads. Gita’s   door is wide open to anyone who knocks. It occurs in the Bhishma parva of Mahabharatha and comprises of eighteen chapters from 25th to 42nd.This good book of practical living marked a positive revolution in Hinduism.


I have simplified it as follows for easy and quick reference 

Why do you worry without cause? 
Whom do you fear without reason? 
Who can kill you? 
The soul is neither born, nor does it die. 

Whatever happened, 
happened for the good; 
whatever is happening, 
is happening for the good; 
whatever will happen, 
will also happen for the good only. 

You need not have any regrets for the past. 
You need not worry for the future. 

The present is happening... 
What did you lose that you cry about? 

What did you bring with you, 
which you think you have lost? 

What did you produce, 
which you think got destroyed? 

You did not bring anything, 
Whatever you have, you received from here. 
Whatever you have given, you have given only here. 

Whatever you took, you took from God. 

Whatever you gave, you gave to Him. 
You came empty handed, 
you will leave empty handed. 

What is yours today, 
belonged to someone else yesterday, and 
will belong to someone else the 
day after tomorrow. 
You are mistakenly enjoying the thought 
that this is yours. 

It is this false happiness that is 
the cause of your sorrows. 

Change is the law of the universe. 
What you think of as death, 
is indeed life. 

In one instance you can be 
a millionaire, and 
in the other instance you can 
be steeped 
in poverty. 

Yours and mine, big and small 
erase these ideas from your mind. 

Then everything is yours and 
you belong to everyone. 
This body is not yours, 
neither are you of the body. 

The body is made of fire, water, air, earth and 
ether, and will disappear into these elements. 
But the soul is permanent -so who are you? 

Dedicate your being to God. 
He is the one to be ultimately relied upon. 
Those who know of his support are forever 
free from fear, worry and sorrow. 

Whatever you do, 
do it as a dedication to God. 
This will bring you the 
tremendous experience of 
joy and life-freedom forever. 

Honestly live to the ideals 
Implement the way taught, 
in your Day to Day Life
Be regular in your pursuits.
Be sincere in your studies.
Be heroic enough to live to the postulates.
Don’t blindly believe.
Keep smiling, live every moment with bliss.
