“Be fearless and pure; never waver in your determination or your dedication to the spiritual life. Give freely. Be self-controlled, sincere, truthful, loving, and full of the desire to serve… Learn to be detached and to take joy in renunciation. Do not get angry or harm any living creature, but be compassionate and gentle; show good will to all. Cultivate vigor, patience, will, purity; avoid malice and pride. Then, you will achieve your destiny.”
~ Krishna from The Bhagavad Gita
The Bhagavad Gita is incredible.
A principal book of Hinduism, inspiration to Gandhi and overall “must-read” for any big thinking seeker, if you haven’t read it yet, I *highly* recommend you add it to your list.
(I personally love Eknath Easwaran’s translation and commentary.)
In these brief six pages, we’ll barely scratch the surface of the depth of the Gita and, as always, we’ll focus on the Big Ideas we can immediately grasp and, most importantly, apply to our lives.
