As a continuation to the previous post this post has Slokas from Chapter 11,12 of Bhagavad Gita. 


 bhaktya tv ananyaya sakya          aham evam-vidho ‘rjuna             jnatum drastum ca tattven  pravestum ca parantap



My dear Arjuna, only by undivided devotional service can I be understood as I am, standing before you, and can thus be seen directly. Only in this way can you enter into the mysteries of My understanding.


mayy eva mana adhats

mayi buddhim nivesay

nivasisyasi mayy ev

ata urdhvam na samsayah

atha cittam samadhat

na saknosi mayi sthira

abhyasa-yogena tat

mam icchaptum dhananjay

abhyase ‘py asamartho 

mat-karma-paramo bhav

mad-artham api karman

kurvan siddhim avapsyas

athaitad apy asakto 

kartum mad-yogam asrita


tatah kuru yatatmava

sreyo hi jnanam abhyas

jnanad dhyanam visisyat

dhyānāt karma-phala-tyāga

tyagac chantir anantara



Just fix your mind upon Me, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and engage all your intelligence in Me. Thus you will live in Me always, without a doubt

My dear Arjuna, O winner of wealth, if you cannot fix your mind upon Me without deviation, then follow the regulated principles of bhakti-yoga In this way you will develop a desire to attain to Me.

If you cannot practice the regulations of bhakti-yoga, then just try to work for Me, because by working for Me you will come to the perfect stage.

If, however, you are unable to work in this consciousness, then try to act giving up all results of your work and try to be self-situated.

If you cannot take to this practice, then engage yourself in the cultivation of knowledge. Better than knowledge, however, is meditation, and better than meditation is renunciation of the fruits of action, for by such renunciation one can attain peace of mind.


advesta sarva-bhutana

maitrau karuna eva ca

nirmamo nirahankara

sama-duhkha-sukhah ksam

santustah satatam yo

yatatma drdha-niscaya

mayy arpita-mano-buddhi

yo mad-bhaktah sa me priya



One who is not envious but who is a kind friend to all living entities, who does not think himself a proprietor, who is free from false ego and equal both in happiness and distress, who is always satisfied and engaged in devotional service with determination and whose mind and intelligence are in agreement with Me,he is very dear to Me.


yasman nodvijate lo

lokan nodvijate ca ya


mukto yah sa ca me priya

anapeksah sucir dak

udasino gata-vyatha


yo mad-bhaktah sa me priya

yo na hrsyati na dves

na socati na kanksat


bhaktiman yah sa me priya



He for whom no one is put into difficulty and who is not disturbed by anxiety, who is steady in happiness and distress, is very dear to Me

A devotee who is not dependant on the ordinary course of activities, who is pure, expert, without cares, free from all pains, and who does not strive for some result, is very dear to Me

One who neither grasps pleasure or grief, who neither laments nor desires, and who renounces both auspicious and inauspicious things, is very dear to Me


samah satrau ca mitre ca

tatha manapamanayo


samah sanga-vivarjita

tulya-ninda-stutir mau

santusto yena kenaci

aniketah sthira-mati

bhaktiman me priyo nara



One who is equal to friends and enemies, who is equiposed in honor and dishonor, heat and cold, happiness and distress, fame and infamy, who is always free from contamination, always silent and satisfied with anything, who doesn’t care for any residence, who is fixed in knowledge and engaged in devotional service, is very dear to Me


ye tu dharmāmṛtam ida

yathoktam paryupasat

sraddadhana mat-param

bhaktas te ‘tiva me priya



He who follows this imperishable path of devotional service and who completely engages himself with faith, making Me the supreme goal is very, very dear to Me.
