Bhagavad Gita: Favourite Shlokas

My favourite shlokas from the Bhagavad Gita:


sukha duhkhe same kRutvA lAbhAlAbhou jayAjayou
tato yuddhAya yujyasva naivam pApam avApsyasi

Making (yourself) the same in happiness and sorrow, gain and loss, victory and defeat,
then engage in battle. Thus you will not incur sin.


yogasthah kuru karmANi sangam tyaktvA dhananjaya
siddhyasiddhyoh samo bhootvA samatvam yoga uchyate

Being in Yoga, perform actions giving up attachment, Dhananjaya,
being the same in success and failure. Sameness is called Yoga.


buddhiyukto jahAteeha ubhe sukRute duShkRute
tasmAd yogAya yujyasva yogah karmasu kouSalam

The intelligent man gives up both good deeds and bad deeds here,
therefore engage in Yoga. Yoga is skill in work.

Hello Dheeraj

My first introduction to the Sangh was through the Aundh IT gat around 2001-2003 time frame. After that, life sort of took over.. :-) Its good to find someone from that group on the net.

Wish you all the best in your adventure and quest! Ill continue to follow your blog.

These sholkas start an interesting discussion.
How do you differentiate between "detachment" and "disinterest".
Isnt only passion that moves people to undertake great deeds?
Being dispassionate only leaves you remaining mediocre?
