To whom praise and blame are equal, who is silent, content with every fortune, home-renouncing, steadfast in mind, and worships Me, that person is dear to me.
Whenever there is a decline of righteousness, O Arjuna, and the rise of unrighteousness, then I manifest myself.
For the soul there is neither birth nor death at any time. He has not come into being, does not come into being, and will not come into being. He is unborn, eternal, ever-existing and primeval. He is not slain when the body is slain.
As men approach Me, so I receive them. All paths, Arjuna, lead to Me.
The faith of every man, O Arjuna, accords with his nature, Man is made up of faith; as is his faith, so is he. The threefold austerity practiced with faith by men of balanced mind, without any expectation of reward, is said to be pure.
Under the influence of false ego one thinks himself to be the doer of activities, while in reality all activities are carried out by nature as a natural process.
A person whose mind is unattached to sensual pleasures, who discovers the joy of the Self, and whose mind is in union with Brahmn through meditation, enjoys eternal bliss.
No one who does good deeds will ever come to a bad end, either here or in the world to come. When such people die, they go to other realms where the righteous live.
By this attitude of complete renunciation you shall be freed from bondage, good and bad, of karma. You shall be liberated, and come to Me.
