Chapter 18 The Bhagavad- Gita is considered by eastern and western scholars alike to be among the greatest spiritual books the world has ever known. In a very clear and wonderful way the Supreme Lord Krishna describes the science of self-realization and the exact process by which a human being can establish their eternal relationship with God. In terms of pure, spiritual knowledge the Bhagavad- Gita is incomparable. Its intrinsic beauty is that its knowledge applies to all human beings and does not postulate any sectarian idealogy or secular view. It is appproachable from the sanctified realms of all religions and is glorified as the epitome of all spiritual teachings. This is because proficiency in the Bhagavad- Gita reveals the eternal principles which are fundamental and essential for spiritual life from all perspectives and allows one to perfectly understand the esoteric truths hidden within all religious scriptures.

Everyone faces challenges, big and small, in their everyday life. At the critical moment, he seeks advice from his charioteer, Lord Krishna who has revealed some profound words of advice that still relevant today. Bhagavad-Gita is verse Hindu scripture, written in Sanskrit, contains a vast sea of knowledge and practical guide to life.
In short, this epic scripture has the answers to all our problems. Here I give you my favorite list of Bhagavad-Gita quotes that will enlighten you.
Change is the law of the universe. Nature teaches us about change. We have to understand that nothing is permanent in our lives. Even our mere existence on Earth is just temporary. In the cycle of life, there are neither losers nor winners. We are kept from our goal not by obstacles, but by a clear path to a lesser goal.
Are you dreaming big enough? Having a lack of clarity is why many people settle for less than they can be. Often, people will abandon their dreams and take the easier path.
Man is made by his belief. As he believes, so he is. The mind is everything. Remember what you perceive is what you believe.
If you let negative thoughts take over your mind, you may feel unhappy, depressed and miserable. If you feed your mind with positive thoughts, you become happy. The beauty is that our mind is under our control. Be the master of your own minds. When meditation is mastered, the mind is unwavering like the flame of a lamp in a windless place. Meditation is the best way to calm your mind and give you immense peace of mind.
Even sitting still with eyes closed our minds race a million miles an hour. When eyes open, we take in a barrage of images that stir our minds and emotions. Think meditation is boring?
But the truth is sometimes we tend to overcomplicate things. Simply spend few minutes every day and sit in dhyana to attain inner peace. Or just take a long breath. Lust Kaam , anger Krodh and greed Lobh have done us no good. They disturb the balance of our soul and mind. Hence we should be extremely vigilant to avoid these 3 doors and stay far away at a safe distance. You have the right to work, but never to the fruit of work.
Understand that we have control over actions and work but we have no command of the results. We all live in this modern, result-oriented world, we only care about the outcome and will do anything to achieve the results.
We always look for the shortcuts. But Krishna stated that we should avoid this attachment to the results. Because when expectations are not met, emotional attachment to the fruit of work will lead to bitterness.
Whatever happened, happened for the good. Whatever is happening, is happening for the good. Whatever will happen, will also happen for the good. Stuck in a worry loop? Everyone worries. Face it and learn to accept it. The present is the only moment that you ever have. You came empty handed and you will leave empty-handed. Living in this materialistic world, we focus mainly on tangible material things.
We get so attached to material items. We want a bigger house, a shinier car, and more cash in the bank. But what we forget is that we can never take all these things with us to the grave. We came to this world as naked and empty-handed and we will take nothing with us at death. Learn not to attach to material things before things start possessing us. Our own mind acts like an Enemy if we do not control it. Our mind is our best friend and also our worst enemy.
The power of will can overcome anything.

Nomenclature[ edit ] The Gita in the title of the text "Bhagavad Gita" means "song". Religious leaders and scholars interpret the word "Bhagavad" in a number of ways. Accordingly, the title has been interpreted as "the Song of God" by the theistic schools,  "the Song of the Lord",  "the Divine Song",   and "Celestial Song" by others. This is not to be confused with the Shrimad Bhagavatam , which is a Purana dealing with the life of the Hindu God Krishna and various avatars of Vishnu. According to Kashi Nath Upadhyaya, a Gita scholar, it is possible that a number of different individuals with the same name compiled different texts. This is evidenced by the discontinuous intermixing of philosophical verses with theistic or passionately theistic verses, according to Basham.
