who came to battle, Arjuna with sorrow spoke like this.
Arjuna
28. Krishna after seeing the friends and relatives who came to battle, my body is shaking,
mouth drying up.
29. (29-30) My hair standing on end and my bow Gandiva slipping from my hand, unable
to stand any longer and mind is reeling.
31. These signs are not good. I dont know what good by killing own relatives and friends
in the battle, Krishna.
32. Krishna, I have no desire For victory or a kingdom nor pleasures what is the use of
these Pleasures?
33. For whom we desire the kingdoms, pleasure they came here by leaving the kingdoms
and pleasures.
34. Teachers, fathers, sons, grandfathers, uncles, in-laws all other family and friends are
here.
35. Madhusudhana let them kill me, I wont kill them even they had given me three
words.
36. Krishna what we accomplish if we kill the sons of Dhritarashtra we become sinful
even if we kill evil men.
37. How can we kill the sons of Dhritarashtra who are our relatives?
38. Kuru family unable to see because of greed they came to battle, but we can see the
greed.
39. Janardhana! Thus we turn away from this battle, families will be lost if we participate.
40. If we kill these people we are not following the path of law, if the law is not there
everything will be with sin.
41. If there is no justice, women of the family become polluted, if women polluted their
family becomes Polluted.

42. It is hell for their families. With these families, the society gets polluted. The people
who destroy the society will go to hell.
43. Families and society get spoiled with their greed.

from your warrior path?
3. With a brave heart destroy these doubts and sorrows.
Arjuna
4. Madhusudhana! How can I fight against my teachers like Bhishma and Drona?

kingdoms and pleasure will be changed to blood.
6. Do I have to participate in battle or not?, I am in confusion, but Dhritarashtra's sons
are eager to participate in the battle.
7. I am in big trouble. I do not know What is good? What is not good? I am your student
and falling on your feet please instruct me.

and kept silent.
10. After watching Arjuna in sorrow between the two armies, Lord Krishna with a gentle
smile said like this.
LORD
11. You spoke to your heart, but your sorrow has no meaning, wise, dont worry about the
living or dead.
12. You, me, all these kings we are there all the time spirit is everlasting it will be there
all the time, the body will vanish but the spirit will not vanish.
13. As a person has a childhood, youth and old age, who are dead they will attain another
body. Dont worry about this.
14. Because of senses, one gets heat, cold, pleasure and pain those are responsible for
ones growth and dissolution thus dont worry about senses.
15. Who are unaffected by senses for them pleasure and pain they see with equal eye.
Those are eligible for the goal of life.
16. Which is not everlasting that is not truth, spirit is the only truth. Those who knows
this knowledge. They dont have to know anything else.
17. That which is everlasting no one can destroy. The indestructible Lord spread over the
entire universe knows this truth.
7

18. Arjuna body is destructible, but which lives in the body is indestructible. Therefore
fight in the battle.
19. Some think the Spirit will kill someone and some think the spirit is killed by
someone, both are ignorant. Spirit will not kill, not be killed.
20. You are unborn; deathless you are not going to change, nor changed by anyone. the
Body will die you will never die.
21. Arjuna for the spirit neither birth nor death, you will not kill or killed by anyone.
22. One take-off the worn-out clothes and take-in the new clothes. Thus the spirit left the
worn-out body and take a new body.
23. The Spirit cannot be sliced with weapon, burned by fire, wet by water, dried by wind.
24. The Spirit cannot be sliced, burned, wet, dried, which is everywhere and motionless.
25. You are beyond the senses and mind you are changeless, know about you and do not
worry.
26. Though you think that you will born and die for this also do not worry.
27. That which had taken birth it will die and after death, there is another birth do not
worry about these.
28. For living beings before birth, they have no senses after birth, they have senses, after
death, there are no senses, do not worry about senses. No point to struggle for senses.
29. Some will observe, some will explain about it, some people will hear about it,
Nobody knows completely.
30. Spirit is present in every living creature, one cannot kill it, do not worry about these.
31. For the Warriors nothing is higher than fighting against evil in battle thus performing
your duty of fighting.
32. The Battle for the warriors is open gates to heaven.
33. If you are not participating in battle and performing your duty of fighting, it is a
dishonour and sin.
34. Your dishonor will spread, for honoring person, dishonor is worse than death.
35. Brave warriors in the battle think that you left the battle out of fear.
36. Enemies will disrespect your strengths; say the words that you cannot bear, what is
more, painful than this.
37. Arjuna, if you die in battle it will take to heaven, if you gain victory you will get
kingdom thus rise for battle.
38. Victory, defeat, honor, dishonor, profit and loss see them with the equal eye. Thus,
you will be freed from sins.
39. Arjuna, I said about wisdom, now hear about the work if you follow this you will be
free from bonds of work.
40. On this path effort never go waste, on this path there no word of losing, a little effort
will protect you from the greatest fear.
41. Who are on this path they see me alone, who are not in this path. Their desires are a
like tree with endless branches.
42. Those who learned Vedas they say nothing more than this.

43. Reality those words are for their sense enjoyment and to fulfill desires, those who
desire for the results of their work. They have re-birth.
44. Whose wisdom has been taken away with desires that person is not eligible for the
goal of life.
45. Vedas say about the three qualities. But you are above three qualities. Do not worry
about your sense enjoyment it will conquer you.
46. What is the use of small ponds for the person in the middle of the sea, for Enlightened
man there is no use of the Vedas?
47. Perform your work but do not look for the results of your work, by checking results of
your work do not do any work.
48. Perform work without attachment, if work goes good or not good has equal eye on
both this is the path of work.
49. For enlightened thinks, wisdom is the wealth, but normal person looking back for
results of their work.
50. An Equal eyed person looks sin, virtue with equal eye, they do not worry about
works, gone beyond good or bad this is the path of work.
51. A Person with wisdom left the results of their work which cause birth and death,
attain the supreme goal.
52. When your mind is free from the desire of self-satisfaction, then you will know the
difference.
53. Mind will move here and there, reach the position where there is point minded then
you will get wisdom in meditation.
Arjuna
54. Krishna, a person with wisdom. How they will speak, How they will sit, How they
will walk?
LORD
55. One gives up their results of their work. With no desires of self-satisfaction, see them
at all.
56. Pain cannot make them down, nor Pleasures can take him up, freed from anger and
desires.
57. One has no desires of sensual pleasure, neither depressed by bad nor hyper by good.
58. As tortoise withdraws his limbs likewise withdraw them from the senses.
59. Senses are responsible for all the pleasures thinks like this runs of pleasure, but when
they realize the ultimate pleasure. one will stop running for sensual pleasures.
60. Senses are so strong, drags away that person who are trying to control.
61. But the wise gradually controls the senses with help of mind.
62. When you think of the sense pleasure it will increase the intensity of desires when
desires are not fulfilled, anger arises.

63. With the anger arises, wisdom will fall, then, what you want to achieve in this life you
are unable to achieve, life is going waste.
64. Wise knows this will happen and controls the senses and obtaining peace and
happiness.
65. With this peace, one is obtaining the wisdom and sorrows come to end.
66. Where senses are not in control their wisdom wont be there. There will be no
happiness without peace. How can there will be at ultimate happiness without peace.
67. Storm sweeps away the boat on the water like the senses sweeping away who dont
have control over them.
68. Use all your strength to control these senses and with a steady mind, you will get
ultimate wisdom.
69. Such sages morning is night for them and night is the morning for them
70. As the river flows into the ocean and does not Make Ocean full, like all the sense
desire will not fulfill one's desires.
71. Those who left their desires not worried about the results of their work. Left the I,
My, Mine such are reaching me.
72. This is the ultimate goal of life. Once they reached the goal. They reach from death to
immortality.

3. PATH OF WORKING
Arjuna
1. Krishna, you have said that wisdom is greater than working, then why are you
suggesting to participate in the battle.
2. I am unable to understand, please show one good path to reach ultimate goal.
LORD
3. When the creation had started, I declared these two paths. Goal by working, goal by
wisdom.
4. Without coming to the path of working. No one succeeds in the path of wisdom.
5. One will work according to three modes of action.
6. Without working simply allowing the mind towards the sensual pleasure cannot be
called as a sage.
7. Controls ones senses and work fork for the welfare of all be called as sage.
8. Perform your duty by working, is better than not working. Without work, your one
cannot maintain physical body.
9. Work for your sense pleasure causes bonds, work not for your sensual pleasure. This
is the path of working.
10. The Person and work created together, in the path of working people will be always at
peace this is my promise.
11. With these kinds of works lower-gods and others will be satisfied. Lower gods will
satisfy people, by satisfying each other both will attain the supreme goal.
12. Human desires are fulfilled by lower gods, anyone who enjoys these results without
sharing called a thief.
13. In the path of working their food is not with sin. Those who are not in the path of
working their food is with sin.
14. Living creatures are growing from food, food is growing from rains, and rains are
growing from the path of work.
15. Every work came from the Lord, he is present in every work.
16. The cycle of human life is bonded to work who disobey this law. They fall into
sensual pleasure and their life will be wasted.
17. Those who knows the path of working is at the ultimate happiness. They dont run for
sensual pleasures.
18. They dont have a profit or loss of any work neither people nor pleasures change
them.
19. They work constantly for the welfare of the world. These people are reaching the
supreme goal.
20. King Janaka and so many have attained the goal by this path of working.
21. What does the outstanding person do, all other follow the path. What instruction they
advise to all the world will follow.
11

22. Of the three worlds, nothing can bind me to work and I dont have a goal to reach but
I will work constantly.
23. If I stop working all they will follow my path.
24. When I stop working I will become the reason for universe destruction.
25. Arjuna! Ignorant work for themselves, wise work for the welfare of others.
26. Watching wise works, ignorant will be in confusion because they always work for
themselves.
27. Works are performed by three modes in nature. Ignorant thinks, I had done this work
unable to see the three modes.
28. Wise knows that three modes interact with each other and performing the works.
Thus, I am not part of it.
29. Who didn't observer working with three modes, waiting for their results of their
work?. Even the wise cannot change them.
30. Submit all the works to me and fight. Without expecting results of the work.
31. Those who perform these divine laws. They will escape from the bonds of works.
32. Those who will not perform these laws are ignorant, they are subjected to their own
suffering.
33. Wise will also perform works according to three modes of nature. But controls the
senses.
34. Sensual pleasures, desires are the biggest difficulties in your path. Pleasure will
control you.
35. Perform the works that you know. Do not perform works that you dont know. By
doing unknown work causes fear, insecurity.
Arjuna
36. Lord, by which power, that one is with selfish desires?
LORD
37. Sensual pleasures, desires, anger came from the mode of Rajasa.
38. Fire is covered by smoke, the mirror is covered by dust, Embryo is covered by the
womb, wisdom is covered with selfish desires.
39. Desires are like fire which will never stop that is the main enemy of wisdom.
40. For desires senses, mind, intelligence are the vehicles and dragging towards the
ignorance.
41. Thus Arjuna use all your strength to control the senses, which destroys wisdom.
42. Of body-senses are stronger, of senses-mind is stronger, of mind-intelligence is
stronger, and of intelligence-spirit is stronger.
43. Let the spirit controls the intelligence, intelligence controls the mind, mind controls
the senses and destroy these desires.

12

explained this.
Arjuna

god?
LORD
5. You have passed many births you had no idea about those but I know.
6. I am never born, I will be there all the time I am the base of every creature. With my
own power, I had taken this limited form.
7. Whenever there is a decline of law and raise of evil things I will take this limited
form.

truth.

this will not affect by the result of work.
15. Know this secret and perform your work. Sages who are before you had done like
this.
16. What work should I have to do? And what not? These doubts are there for older
sages I will reveal the secret for you.
17. If you know what you have to do then you will know what should, you dont have to
do, then perform your work
18. The Wise sees there are Donts in Dos and Dos in Donts and perform work.
19. Thus who knows this and perform their works. Those are called the wise and sages.
They are burning results of the work to ash in the fire of knowledge.
20. Those who left the results of the work are wise.

13

21. Desires, free from sensual pleasures controls the body, mind performs their works,
they are untouched by sins.

welfare of the world.

senses, some in the path of spiritual wisdom.
29. Some sages performing inhalation and exhalation in the path of meditation.
30. Some people control their senses and understanding the meaning of service and
clearing their sins.
31. Those who will do service are reaching the goal of life. Those who are not doing any
service. They will be not happy in this and the next birth.
32. Services can be performed with work, who knows this truth is making their paths
towards me.
33. Service is greater than the wealth of knowledge.
34. Those who know this ask them politely and they will instruct you.
35. If you know this wisdom once, then you will never fall again, you can see all
creatures in you.
36. If you think you are most sinful of all sinners, you can cross the ocean of sin with a
spiritual boat.
37. As the fire turns the wood to ashes, likewise in the wisdom of fire turns the sins into
ashes.
38. There is nothing is greater than spiritual wisdom, with the efforts they are gaining the
spiritual wisdom.
39. Those who take wisdom as the highest goal trying for that and controlling the senses.
They are reaching the spiritual wisdom very fast and attaining peace.
40. But the ignorant dont trust and wasting their lives. They will never be happy in this
and next life.

intelligence.

peaceful place, equal-minded on every action thinks that spiritual knowledge is the
only knowledge and rest as ignorance.

beginning and an end.
14. (14-15) Eternal resides in everyone's hand, foot, head, ear, mouth and in the universe
without him nothing can work and it is beyond the three modes.

of the creation from the nature of three modes came into existence.
21. With the three modes of nature, the body is experiencing pleasure and pain for all
actions of nature is responsible.
22. Nature is nourishing body with three modes of nature, it is taking the body to do good
things and evil things.

33

23. The supreme lord resides in the body in the form of spirit as supporter, enjoyer and
witness to this body actions.
24. Those who realizes the Supreme Lord beyond the three modes of nature will not born
again.

some by the path of wisdom.

creatures. I placed seed that had given birth to all living.
4. Nature is the mother of all the creatures and I am the seed-giving father.

body.

7. Rajasa : Binds the spirit with the body with desires, results of the work.
8. Tamasa : Binds with ignorance and sleep.
9. Sattva gives happiness, rajasa gives desires, results of work and tamasa gives
ignorance.
10. Sometimes sattva wins, sometimes rajasa wins, sometimes tamasa wins.
11. When sattva wins, the consciousness of wisdom raises.
12. When rajasa wins desires, greedy, results of work raises.
13. When tamasa wins ignorance, confusion raises.
14. When someone died in the mode sattva go to heaven.
15. When someone died in the mode of rajase reborn as humans, when died in the mode
of tamasa born in the animal kingdom.
16. As result of sattva happiness and peace, as result of rajasa sorrows and desires, as
result of tamasa ignorance.
17. Sattva gives wisdom rajasa gives greed, tamasa gives ignorance.
18. Sattva taking you to heaven ,rajasa taking you to earth, tamasa taking you to hell

birth and death and attaining the supreme.

they act? How they have passed beyond modes.
