The Bhagavad Gita Quotes in English on Success, Love, Karma

“Krishna introduces the idea that it is not enough to master all selfish desires; it is also necessary to subdue possessiveness and egocentricity.”
― Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

“The rajasic person is full of energy; the tamasic person is sluggish, indifferent, insensitive; the sattvic person, calm, resourceful, compassionate, and selfless. Yet all three are always present at some level of awareness, and their proportions change: their interplay is the dynamics of personality. The same individual will have times when he is bursting with energy and times when inertia descends and paralyzes his will, times when he is thoughtful and other times when he is moving so fast that he never notices those around him. The person is the same; he is simply experiencing the play of the gunas. As long as he identifies with his body and mind, he is at the mercy of this play.”
― Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

The Bhagavad Gita Quotes in English on Success, Love, Karma

― Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

“Actions do not cling to me because I am not attached to their results. Those who understand this and practice it live in freedom.”
― Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

The Bhagavad Gita Quotes On Life

“When your mind has overcome the confusion of duality, you will attain the state of holy indifference to things you hear and things you have heard.”
― Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

“The law of karma states unequivocally that though we cannot see the connections, we can be sure that everything that happens to us, good and bad, originated once in something we did or thought. We ourselves are responsible for what happens to us, whether or not we can understand how. It follows that we can change what happens to us by changing ourselves; we can take our destiny into our own hands.”
― Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

The Bhagavad Gita Quotes in English on Life, Love, Karma

“The work of a man who is unattached to the modes of material nature and who is fully situated in transcendental knowledge merges entirely into transcendence.”
― Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

“The image of God is found essentially and personally in all mankind. Each possesses it whole, entire and undivided, and all together not more than one alone. In this way, we are all one, intimately united in our eternal image, which is the image of God and the source in us of all our life.”
― Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

The Bhagavad Gita Quotes in English on Life, Love, Karma

“Now listen, Arjuna: there are also three kinds of happiness. By sustained effort, one comes to the end of sorrow. 37 That which seems like poison at first, but tastes like nectar in the end – this is the joy of sattva, born of a mind at peace with itself. 38 Pleasure from the senses seems like nectar at first, but it is bitter as poison in the end. This is the kind of happiness that comes to the rajasic. 39 Those who are tamasic draw their pleasures from sleep, indolence, and intoxication. Both in the beginning and in the end, this happiness is a delusion.”
― Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

“The battlefield is a perfect backdrop, but Gita’s subject is the war within, the struggle for self-mastery that every human being must wage if he or she is to emerge from life victorious. THE”
― Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

The Bhagavad Gita Quotes in English on Life, Love, Karma

“Those who remember me at the time of death will come to me. Do not doubt this. 6 Whatever occupies the mind at the time of death determines the destination of the dying; always they will tend toward that state of being. 7 Therefore, remember me at all times and fight on. With your heart and mind intent on me, you will surely come to me. 8”
― Ved Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

“The Self is one, the same in every creature. This is not some peculiar tenet of the Hindu scriptures; it is the testimony of everyone who has undergone these experiments in the depths of consciousness and followed them through to the end. Here is Ruysbroeck, a great mystic of medieval Europe; every word is most carefully chosen: The image of God is found essentially and personally in all mankind. Each possesses it whole, entire and undivided, and altogether not more than one alone. In this way, we are all one, intimately united in our eternal image, which is the image of God and the source in us of all our life. Maya In the unitive experience, every trace of separateness disappears; life is a seamless whole. But the body cannot remain in this state for long. After a while, awareness of mind and body returns, and then the conventional world of multiplicity rushes in again with such vigor and vividness that the memory of unity, though stamped with reality, seems as distant as a dream. The unitive state has to be entered over and over until a person is established in it. But once established, even in the midst of ordinary life, one sees the One underlying the many, the Eternal beneath the ephemeral.”
― Veda Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

The Bhagavad Gita Quotes in English on Life, Love, Karma

“Be fearless and pure; never waver in your determination or your dedication to the spiritual life. Give freely. Be self-controlled, sincere, truthful, loving, and full of the desire to serve. Realize the truth of the scriptures; learn to be detached and to take joy in renunciation. 2 Do not get angry or harm any living creature, but be compassionate and gentle; show goodwill to all. 3 Cultivate vigor, patience, will, purity; avoid malice and pride.”
― Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

“The law of karma states simply that every event is both a cause and an effect. Every act has consequences of a similar kind, which in turn have further consequences and so on; and every act, every karma, is also the consequence of some previous karma.”
― Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

The Bhagavad Gita Quotes in English on Life, Love, Karma

Bhagwat Geeta Thoughts

“When the mind constantly runs
after the wandering senses,
it drives away wisdom, like the wind
blowing a ship off course.”
― Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

“Yet there are always a few who are not content to spend their lives indoors. Simply knowing there is something unknown beyond their reach makes them acutely restless. They have to see what lies outside – if only, as George Mallory said of Everest, “because it’s there.”
― Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

“Krishna warns Arjuna that a life of work, even successful work, cannot be fulfilling without Self-knowledge. Ultimately, the true Self within him is not affected by what he does, whether good or bad. Only knowledge of the Self, which rises like the sun at dawn, can fulfill the purpose of his life and lead him beyond rebirth. This”
― Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

“In sleep a person passes in and out of two stages, dreaming and dreamless sleep. In the first, consciousness is withdrawn from the body and senses but still engaged in the mind. In dreamless sleep, however, consciousness is withdrawn from the mind as well. Then the thinking process – even the sense of “I” – is temporarily suspended, and consciousness is said to rest in the Self. In this state a person ceases to be a separate creature, a separate personality. In dreamless sleep, the Upanishads say, a king is not a king nor a pauper poor; no one is old or young, male or female, educated or ignorant. When consciousness returns to the mind, however, the thinking process starts up again, and personality returns to the body.”
― Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

“Earth, water, fire, air, akasha, mind, intellect, and ego – these are the eight divisions of my prakriti.”
― Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

“While seeing or hearing, touching or smelling; eating, moving about, or sleeping; breathing 9 or speaking, letting go or holding on, even opening or closing the eyes, they understand that these are only the movements of the senses among sense objects. 10”
― Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

“Everything we do produces karma in the mind. In fact, it is in the mind rather than the world that karma’s seeds are planted. Aptly, Indian philosophy compares a thought to a seed: very tiny, but it can grow into a huge, deep-rooted, wide-spreading tree. I have seen places where a seed in a crack of a pavement grew into a tree that tore up the sidewalk. It is difficult to remove such a tree, and terribly difficult to undo the effects of a lifetime of negative thinking, which can extend into many other people’s lives. But it can be done, and the purpose of the Gita is to show how.”
― Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita

“Your own duty done imperfectly is better than another man’s done well.”
― Krishna-Dwaipayana Vyasa, The Bhagavad Gita
