ANONYMOUS – Bhagavad Gita

Bhagavad Gita

In battle, in the forest, at the precipice in the mountains,

on the dark great sea,in the midst of javelins and arrows,

in sleep, in confusion,in the depths of shame,

the good deeds a man has done before defend him.

A man’s own self is his friend.

A man’s own self is his foe.

It is better to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody else’s life with perfection.

The mind acts like an enemy for those who do not control it.

Hypocrisy, arrogance, pride, anger, harshness, and ignorance;

these are the marks of those who are born with demonic qualities.

Knowing is not enough; we must apply.

Willing is not enough; we must do.

Among the purifiers I am the wind

and among the weapon wielders I am Rama.

Among the sea creatures I am the crocodile

and among the rivers I am Ganga

Now I have become Death,

the destroyer of worlds.
