Balancing the Bhagavad
Applying the Wisdom of the Gita
Here are some bits and pieces of the Bhagavad Gita where I’ve put myself in Krishna’s perspective as he guides Arjuna to understanding the path to self realization. I am both Arjuna and Krishna and they are both me. I am contained in everyone and everything and everyone and everything in contained in me.
I have nothing to grieve
for any being as the Self,
who dwells in this body is
I shall lift up my self by my Self
and not sink into the selfish;
for my self is the only friend
of my Self, and its only foe.
The woman who sees herself in everything
and everything within her
will not be lost to herself
nor will she ever be lost to anything or anyone.
I will practice yoga sincerely
with single minded devotion;
(for self and Self will be united)
love yourself with perfect faith
bring your whole self within.
