Bhagavad Gita

Chapter 18
51-53 Unerring in his discrimination, sovereign of his senses and passions, free from the clamor of likes and dislikes, he leads a simple, self-reliant life based on meditation, cointrolling his speech, body, and mind. Free from self-will, aggressiveness, arrogance, anger, and the lust to possess people or things, he is at peace with himself and others and enters into the unitive state.

54 United with Brahman, ever joyful, beyond the reach of desire and sorrow, he has equal regard for every living creature and attains supreme devotion to Me.

55 By loving Me he comes to know Me truly; then he knows My glory and enters into My boundless being.

56 All his acts are performed in My service and through My Grace he wins eternal life.

57 Make every act an offering to Me; regard Me as your only protector, relying on interior discipline, meditate on Me always.

58 Remembering Me, you shall overcome all difficulties through My Grace. But if you will not heed Me in your self-will, nothing avail you.

59 If you egotistically say, "I will not fight this battle," your resolve will be useless; your own nature will drive you into it.

60 Your own karma, born of your own nature, will drive you to do even that which you do not wish to do, because of your delusion.

61 The Lord dwells in the hearts of all creatures whirls them around upon the wheel of Maya.

62 Run to Him for refuge with all your strength, and peace profpund will be yours through his Grace.

63 I give you these precious words of wisdom; reflect on them and then do as you choose.

64 These are the last words I shall speak to you, dear one, for your spiritual fulfillment. You are dear to Me.

65 Be aware of me always, adore Me. Make every act an offering to me, and you shall come to me.

66 Abandon all supports and look to me for protection. I shall purify you from the sins of the past, do not grieve.
