FOURTH CHAPTER THE DIVINE WORKER (To attain to the divine birth,—birth of the soul into a higher consciousness,—and to do divine works both as a means towards that before it is attained and as an expression of it after it is attained, is then all the Karma-yoga of the Gita. The Gita does not try to define works by any outward signs through which they can be recognisable to an external gaze, measurable by the criticism of the world; it deliberately renounces even the ordinary ethical distinctions by which men seek to guide themselves in the light of the human reason. The signs by which it distinguishes divine works are all profoundly intimate and subjectiv

ELEVENTH CHAPTER THE DOUBLE ASPECT 35. Sanjaya said: Having heard these words of Keshava, Kiriti (Arjuna), with clasped hands and trembling, saluted again and spoke to Krishna in a faltering voice very much terrified and bowing down. 36.Arjuna said: Rightly and in good place,O Krishna, does the world rejoice l and take pleasure in Thy name; the Rakshasas are fleeing from Thee in terror to all the quarters and the companies of the Siddhas bow down before Thee in adoration. 2 ____________________________________________________ 1 Even while the effects of the terrible aspect of this vision are still upon him, the first word

TENTH CHAPTER II. GOD IN POWER OF BECOMING 12. Arjuna1 said: Thou2 art the supreme Brahman, the supreme Abode, the supreme Purity, the one Permanent, the divine Purusha, the original Godhead, the Unborn, the all-pervading Lord. ___________________________________________ 1 Arjuna accepts the entire knowledge that has thus been given to him by the divine Teacher. His mind is already delivered from its doubts and seekings; his heart, turned now from the outward aspect of the world, from its baffling appearance to its supreme sense and origin and its inner realities, is already released

SIXTEENTH CHAPTER DEVA AND ASURA (The Gita has "insisted on doing all actions, sarvani karmam, kritsnakrit; it has said that in whatever way the perfected Yogin lives and acts, he lives and acts in God. This can only be, if the nature also in its dynamics and workings becomes divine, a power imperturbable, intangible, inviolate, pure and untroubled by the re- actions of the inferior Prakriti. How and by what steps is this most difficult transformation to be effected ? What is this last secret of the soul's perfection ? What the principle or the process of this transmutation of our human and earthly nature ? The sattwic quality is a first mediator be

FOURTH CHAPTER THE SIGNIFICANCE OF SACRIFICE (The Gita now proceeds to give an elaborate explanation of the meaning of Yajna which leaves no doubt at all about the symbolic use of the words and the psychological character of the sacrifice enjoined "by this teaching.) Brahman is the giving, Brahman is the food-offering, by Brahman it is offered into the Brahman-fire, Brahman is that which is to be attained by samadhi in Brahman-action.1 ________________________________________ 1. This then is the knowledge in which the liberated man I has to do works of sacri

THIRTEENTH CHAPTER THE FIELD AND ITS KNOWER 1. Arjuna1 said: Prakriti and Purusha, the Field and the Knower of the Field, Knowledge and the object of Knowledge, these I fain would learn, 0 Keshava. 2. The Blessed Lord said: This body,2 0 son of Kunti, is called the Field; that which takes cognizance of the Field is called the Knower of the Field by the sages. _______________________________________________ 1 Arjuna has been asked to do divine work as the instrument of the divine Will in the cosmos. As a pragmatic and practical man he asks to learn the actual difference between Purusha and Prakriti, the Field
Resource name: /E-Library/Disciples/Anilbaran Roy/English/The Message of The Gita/The Gunas, Faith and Works.htm
SEVENTEENTH CHAPTER THE GUNAS, FAITH AND WORKS (The Gita has made a distinction between action according to the license of personal desire and action done according to the. Shastra. But we see also that there is a freer tendency in man other than the leading of his desires and other than his will to accept the Law, the fixed idea, the safe governing rule of the Shastra. The individual frequently enough, the community at any moment of its life is seen to turn away from the Shastra, becomes impatient of it, loses that form of its will and faith and goes in search of another law which it is now more disposed to accept as the right rule of living
