There is profound knowledge in the Bhagavad Gita and reading it’s enlightenment-full pages take us a on a path where we know ourselves better, where we find solutions to even the most complicated questions.

Here is more from the wisdom of the epic to learn from:

1. CHAPTER TWO, VERSE 48:

yoga-stah kuru karmani sangam tyaktva dhananjaya

siddhi-asiddhiyoh samo bhutva samatvam yoga uchyate

This quote tells one to perform their duties without the expectation of success or failure. There should be no attachment to the results of what one does. Such equanimity is called yoga.

2. CHAPTER TWO, VERSE 56:

duhkhesv anudvigna-manah sukhesu vigata-sprhah

vita-raga-bhaya-krodhah stitha-dhir munir uchyate

One who is not disturbed by the three miseries or elated by happiness; one who is free from attachment, fear and anger is called a sage of a steady mind.

3. CHAPTER TWO, VERSE 63:

krodhad bhavati sammohah sammohat smrti-vibhramah

smrti-bhramsad buddhi-naso buddhi-nasat pranasyati

From anger arises complete delusion and from delusion comes  puzzled memory. When memory is puzzled, intelligence is lost. When intelligence is lost, one falls down in life.

4. CHAPTER THREE, VERSE 8:

niyatam kuru karma tvam karma jyayo hy akarmanah

sarira-yatrapi ch te na prasiddyed akarmanah

One should perform their prescribed duty because it is better than not working at all. Work is necessary even to maintain one’s physical body.

5. CHAPTER THREE, VERSE 21:

yad yad acharati sresthas tat tad evetaro janah

sa yat pramanah kurute lokas tad anuvartate

The actions performed by great men are followed by common men. The standards set by a great man are exemplary and pursued by the entire world.
