Below are Sanskrit Quotes from Bhagavad Gita with English & Hindi Translation. नीचे भागवद गीता के कुछ प्रसिद्ध उद्धरण (Quotes) हैं जो पहले संस्कृत में हैं और उनका इंग्लिश और हिंदी में अनुवाद किया गया है :
"Sri Krishna said: Whenever and wherever there is a decline in virtue/religious practice, O Arjuna, and a predominant rise of irreligion—at that time I descend Myself, i.e. I manifest Myself as an embodied being."
"श्री कृष्ण भगवान ने कहा: जब जब भी और जहां जहां भी, हे अर्जुन, पुण्य / धर्म की हानि होती है और अधर्म में वृद्धि होती है, तब तब मैं अवतार लेता हूँ "
२) परित्राणाय, साधूनाम्, विनाशाय, च, दुष्कृृताम्, धर्मसंस्थापनार्थाय, सम्भवामि, युगे, युगे।। (भागवत गीता: अध्याय चार पद 8) "Sri Krishna said: To deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to re-establish the principles of religion, I Myself appear, millennium after millennium." "श्री कृष्ण भगवान ने कहा: साधु लोगों का उद्धार करने के लिये ओर बुरे कर्म करने वाले लोगों का विनाश करने के लिये और धर्म की संस्थापना करने के लिए, मैं युग - युग में अवतरित होता हूं ३) "कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन, मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भूर्मा ते सङ्गोऽस्त्वकर्मणि।। (भागवत गीता: अध्याय दो पद 47) "Sri Krishna said: You have a right to perform your prescribed duty, but you are not entitled to the fruits of action. Never consider yourself the cause of the results of your activities, and never be attached to not doing your duty."
"श्री कृष्ण भगवान ने कहा: तुम्हें अपने निर्धारित कर्तव्य का पालन करने का अधिकार है, लेकिन तुम कर्मों के फल के हकदार नहीं हो। इसलिये तुम कर्मों के फल हेतु मत हो तथा तुम्हारी कर्म न करने में भी आसक्ति न हो "
४) न जायते, म्रियते, वा कदाचित् न अयम्, भूत्वा, भविता वा न, भूयः अजः नित्यः शाश्वतः अयम्, पुराणः न, हन्यते, हन्यमाने, शरीरे।। (भागवत गीता: अध्याय दो पद 20) "Sri Krishna said: The soul is never born nor dies at any time. Soul has not come into being, does not come into being, and will not come into being. Soul is unborn, eternal, ever-existing and primeval. Soul is not slain when the body is slain." "श्री कृष्ण भगवान ने कहा: आत्मा ना पैदा होती है और न ही किसी भी समय मरती है। आत्मा न उत्पन्न होकर फिर होने वाली ही है, क्योंकि आत्मा अजन्मा, नित्य, शाश्वतः, सनातन और पुरातन है। शरीर के मारे जाने पर भी आत्मा नहीं मरती ।।" ५) वासांसि जीर्णानि यथा विहाय नवानि गृह्णतिः, नरः अपराणि, तथा शरीराणि विहाय जीर्णानि, अन्यानि संयाति, नवानि, देही।। (भागवत गीता: अध्याय दो पद 22) "Sri Krishna said: As a human being puts on new garments, giving up old ones, the soul similarly accepts new material bodies, giving up the old and useless ones." "श्री कृष्ण भगवान ने कहा: एक इंसान जैसे पुराने वस्त्रों को त्यागकर नये वस्त्रों को ग्रहण करता है वैसे ही जीवात्मा पुराने जीर्ण शरीर को त्याग कर नये शरीर को प्राप्त होती है।।" ६) नैनं छिन्दन्ति, शस्त्राणि, नैनं दहति, पावकः, न चैनं क्लेदयन्त्यापो न शोषयति मारुतः।। (भागवत गीता: अध्याय दो पद23) "Sri Krishna said: The soul can never be cut to pieces by any weapon, nor burned by fire, nor moistened by water, nor withered by the wind." "श्री कृष्ण भगवान ने कहा: आत्मा किसी भी शस्त्र से नहीं काटी जा सकती है, और न ही आत्मा को आग जला सकती है, इसको जल नहीं गला सकता है और वायु आत्मा को नहीं सूखा सकती है।।"

(Bhagwat Geeta is the greatest book of Hindu Philosophy. Here below is the brief essence of the Philosophy of Bhagwat Geeta. Teachings of Bhagwat Geeta were given by Lord Krishna, the God Himself to his disciple Arjuna on the battlefield of Kurukshetra in Haryana State of India. These teachings were given more than 5000 years ago but these are still relevant today in our lives. )
अतीतमेंजो कुछ भी हुआ, वह अच्छे के लिएहुआ,जो कुछहो रहा है, अच्छा हो रहाहै, जोभविष्य में होगा, अच्छा ही होगा. अतीतके लिएमत रोओ, अपनेवर्तमान जीवनपरध्यान केंद्रित करो ,भविष्यके लिएचिंता मत करो
(Whatever happened in the past, it happened for the good; Whatever is happening, is happening for the good; Whatever shall happen in the future, shall happen for the good only. Do not weep for the past, do not worry for the future, concentrate on your present life.)
जन्म के समय मेंआप क्यालाए थे जो अब खो दिया है? आप ने क्या पैदा किया था जो नष्ट हो गया है? जब आपपैदा हुए थे, तब आप कुछ भी साथ नहीं लाए थे.आपके पासजो कुछ भी है, आप को इस धरतीपर भगवानसे ही प्राप्त हुआ है.आपइस धरती पर जो भी दोगे,तुमभगवानको ही दोगे. हर कोईखाली हाथइसदुनियामेंआया थाऔरखाली हाथ ही उसीरास्ते पर चलनाहोगा. सब कुछकेवलभगवानके अंतर्गत आता है.
(What did you bring at the time of birth, that you have lost? What did you produce, which is destroyed? You didn't bring anything when you were born. Whatever you have, you have received it from the God only while on this earth. Whatever you will give, you will give it to the God. Everyone came in this world empty handed and shall go the same way. Everything belongs to God only.)
आज जो कुछ आप का है, पहले किसी और का था और भविष्य में किसी और का हो जाएगा. परिवर्तन संसार का नियम है.
(Whatever belongs to you today, belonged to someone else earlier and shall belong to some one else in future. Change is the law of the universe.)
आपएकअविनाशीआत्मा हैं औरएक मृत्युमय शरीर नहीं है.शरीर पांचतत्वों से बना है- पृथ्वी, अग्नि, जल, वायु औरआकाश। एक दिनशरीर इनतत्वोंमें लीन हो जाएगा.
(You are an indestructible Soul & not a body. Body is composed of five elements - Earth, Fire, Water, Air and Sky; one day body shall perish in these elements.)
आत्मा अजन्म हैऔरकभी नहींमरताहै. आत्मामरने के बाद भीहमेशा के लिएरहता है. तोक्यों व्यर्थ कीचिंता करते हो?आपकिस बात से डररहे हैं? कौनतुम्हें मार सकता है?
(Soul lives forever even after death as soul is never born & never dies. So Why do you worry unnecessarily? What are you afraid of? Who can kill you?)
केवलसर्वशक्तिमान ईश्वरके लिएअपने आप को समर्पित करो. जो भगवानका सहारा लेगा, उसे हमेशाभय, चिंताऔरनिराशासे मुक्ति मिलेगी.
(Devote yourself to the Almighty God only. One who takes the support of God, always gains freedom from fear, worry and despair.)
"श्री कृष्ण भगवान ने अर्जुन से कहा: आप को अपने निर्धारित कर्तव्य का पालन करने का अधिकार है, लेकिन आप कभी कर्म फल की इच्छा से कर्म मत करो (कर्म फल देने का अधिकार सिर्फ ईश्वर को है)। कर्म फल की अपेक्षा से आप कभी कर्म मत करें, न ही आप की कभी कर्म न करने में प्रवृर्ति हो (आप की हमेशा कर्म करने में प्रवृर्ति हो) ।।" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Two verse 47)
"karmany evadhikaras te ma phalesu kadachana ma karma-phala-hetur bhur ma te sango ’stv akarmani"(Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Two verse 47) "Sri Krishna said to Arjuna: You have a right to perform your prescribed duty, but you are not entitled to the fruits of action. Never consider yourself the cause of the results of your activities, and never be attached to not doing your duty."(Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Two verse 47)
Here below is detailed meaning of this verse:
1) karmany evadhikaras te: कर्मणये वाधिकारस्ते: you have a right to work only
2) ma phalesu kadachana: मां फलेषु कदाचन: but have no right to the fruits thereof
3) ma karma-phala-hetur bhur: मां कर्मफलहेतुर्भू: let not the fruits be the motive of doing karmas
4) ma te sango ’stv akarmani: मांते संङगोस्त्वकर्मणि: let yourself not be attached to inaction.
"श्री कृष्ण भगवान ने कहा: जब जब भी और जहां जहां भी, हे अर्जुन, पुण्य / धर्म की हानि होती है और अधर्म में वृद्धि होती है, तब तब मैं अवतार लेता हूँ " परित्राणाय, साधूनाम्, विनाशाय, च, दुष्कृृताम्, धर्मसंस्थापनार्थाय, सम्भवामि, युगे, युगे।। (भागवत गीता: अध्याय चार पद 8) "श्री कृष्ण भगवान ने कहा: साधु लोगों का उद्धार करने के लिये ओर बुरे कर्म करने वाले लोगों का विनाश करने के लिये और धर्म की संस्थापना करने के लिए, मैं युग - युग में अवतरित होता हूं "कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन, मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भूर्मा ते सङ्गोऽस्त्वकर्मणि।। (भागवत गीता: अध्याय दो पद 47) "श्री कृष्ण भगवान ने कहा: तुम्हें अपने निर्धारित कर्तव्य का पालन करने का अधिकार है, लेकिन तुम कर्मों के फल के हकदार नहीं हो। इसलिये तुम कर्मों के फल हेतु मत हो तथा तुम्हारी कर्म न करने में भी आसक्ति न हो " न जायते, म्रियते, वा कदाचित् न अयम्, भूत्वा, भविता वा न, भूयः अजः नित्यः शाश्वतः अयम्, पुराणः न, हन्यते, हन्यमाने, शरीरे।। (भागवत गीता: अध्याय दो पद 20) "श्री कृष्ण भगवान ने कहा: आत्मा ना पैदा होती है और न ही किसी भी समय मरती है। आत्मा न उत्पन्न होकर फिर होने वाली ही है, क्योंकि आत्मा अजन्मा, नित्य, शाश्वतः, सनातन और पुरातन है। शरीर के मारे जाने पर भी आत्मा नहीं मरती ।।" वासांसि जीर्णानि यथा विहाय नवानि गृह्णतिः, नरः अपराणि, तथा शरीराणि विहाय जीर्णानि, अन्यानि संयाति, नवानि, देही।। (भागवत गीता: अध्याय दो पद 22) "श्री कृष्ण भगवान ने कहा: एक इंसान जैसे पुराने वस्त्रों को त्यागकर नये वस्त्रों को ग्रहण करता है वैसे ही जीवात्मा पुराने जीर्ण शरीर को त्याग कर नये शरीर को प्राप्त होती है।।" नैनं छिन्दन्ति, शस्त्राणि, नैनं दहति, पावकः, न चैनं क्लेदयन्त्यापो न शोषयति मारुतः।। (भागवत गीता: अध्याय दो पद23) "श्री कृष्ण भगवान ने कहा: आत्मा किसी भी शस्त्र से नहीं काटी जा सकती है, और न ही आत्मा को आग जला सकती है, इसको जल नहीं गला सकता है और वायु आत्मा को नहीं सूखा सकती है।।"
In Bhagwat Gita Lord Krishna has given a promise that He is always with His devotees. Whosoever, worships Him with true heart, He is always with that person. But it is our mind only that is not having complete faith in Him & His powers. We do not actually know how resourceful & powerful God is & that He can take care of all of our problems. It's only that we should have unswerving faith in Him. If we do have such faith in Him & always think of Him, pray Him, then there is no chance that He shall not be with you always & in times of your adversity. Recently I was listening to a devotional song / bhazan by Sh. Vinod Aggarwal Ji in which he was describing about the story of a person, who wanted to test his faith in God - Lord Krishna, whether or not God is always with him. Story goes like this:
Once there was a devotee of Lord Krishna who always used to have faith in the powers of the God & always used to pray Him in his mind. That person was very rich. That person prayed to God & asked the God that I love you, pray you, adore you so much but how come I am to know that You are with me & shall protect me in all circumstances. God told him, "You see, you daily goes for a morning walk by the bank of the river. Now onwards I shall walk by your side, whenever, you shall go for the morning walk." Next day that person went for the morning walk but could not see anybody over there. When he came back from the morning walk, he started complaining to God, "As promised, You have not come to my side when I went for the morning walk. God, I could not see You during my morning walk." God said to him, "I have come during your morning walk but with these eyes you could not see Me". Devotee, "O God, then how am I to know that You are with me?" God said to him, " See, whenever you walk by the side of the river, you normally see only two footsteps of yours. Now ,whenever, you see four footsteps instead of two, just think that I am walking by you." It started happening that way only & that person always saw four footsteps & felt happy & confident that God is with him & walking by him. Life is the name of change. Now the times changed & with the quirk of fate, somehow that person lost his wealth & got poor. When the wealth was gone, all his near & dear ones turned their faces away from that person. He started to feel very lonely but was confident that in all these times of adversity, though all his near & dear ones, friends & relatives have left him but at least his revered God-Lord Krishna is with him. That person still used to go for the morning walk. But surprisingly during these times of adversity he again started seeing only two footsteps instead of four, during his walk by the river. Now that person was very surprised that his revered, lovable God too has left him during the adverse times. He started regretting & crying but ultimately said in his mind, "Let it be the will of God, what he can do?" Life for that man went on like that only & with time, again his times changed & he once again became rich & prosperous. But now when he went to the morning walk by the side of the river he again started seeing four footsteps instead of two. Now he got impatient & complained to God that this is not fair. He said to God, "It's all right that in my adverse times all my near & dear ones had left me but how come that You too, who always promised me to be with me, too had left me in my adverse times. God, how come that You leave your devotee in his bad times?" Now God could not keep His silence & told that person, "O My Dear one, in your times of adversity the two footsteps that you saw were not yours but these were of Him." That man said, "How can it be that those footsteps were Yours & not mine?"
God said, "O My Dear one, in your times of adversity, YOU WERE IN MY LAP & I ALWAYS WALKED TAKING YOU IN MY LAP ONLY. In such a condition how can your footsteps be there on the bank of the river. Those two footsteps in your adverse times were mine only. Now your good time has come so now once again I shall be separate from you & shall always walk by your side."
In Bhagwat Gita Lord Krishna tells Arjuna to always have faith in Him only as, whosoever, keeps faith in Lord Krishna, He always protects that devotee. "ananyas cintayanto mam ye janah paryupasate tesham nityabhiyuktanam yoga-ksemam vahamy aham" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Nine verse 22) "Lord Sri Krishna says to Arjuna: But those who always worship Me with exclusive devotion, meditating on My transcendental form—to them I carry what they lack, and I preserve what they have." "ananya-cetah satatam yo mam smarati nityasah tasyaham sulabhah partha nitya-yuktasya yoginah" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Eight verse 14) "Lord Sri Krishna says: Whosoever, always & constantly remembers Me with undivided mind; by that person, I am easy to obtain, O Arjuna, because of his constant engagement in the devotional service to Me." Jai Sri Krishna
God is sitting in your heart. Do you have complete Faith in this line? If a saint tells you that God is almighty & is present everywhere in this world & even all around you, then you may not have that complete Faith in his words. If scriptures tell you that God has created all this world then you may not have that complete Faith in it. How is it that people can put Faith in all type of people & things of the world but cannot have faith in the words of a saint?
Faith is the one which makes our perceptions & beliefs. If you have Faith in & believe in religious scriptures, words of a saint, then you shall be able to turn toward the God. It's Faith only which determines how you can mould your life. It shall be Good if you have Faith in the words of a saint or in religious books than you have Faith in people who indulge in gambling, betting etc. Choice is yours!!!!!
aprapya mam nivartante
mrityu-samsara-vartmani (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Nine verse 3) "Sri Krishna said to Arjuna: Those who are not Faithful in this devotional service, cannot attain Me, O Arjuna. Therefore they return to the path of birth and death in this material world." "ye me matam idam nityam
mucyante te ’pi karmabhih" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Three verse 31) "Sri Krishna said to Arjuna: Those persons who execute their duties according to My injunctions and who follow this teaching faithfully, without envy, become free from the bondage of the fruitive actions, gets liberated & come to Me."
"Sri Krishna said to Arjuna: A faithful man who is dedicated to transcendental knowledge and who subdues his senses is eligible to achieve such knowledge, and having achieved it he quickly attains the God & spiritual peace."
jnana-nirdhuta-kalmasah" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Five verse 17) "Sri Krishna said to Arjuna: When one’s Intelligence, Mind, Faith and refuge are all fixed in the God, then one becomes fully cleansed of misgivings through complete knowledge and thus proceeds straight on the path of liberation."
"yoginam api sarvesam
shraddhavan bhajate yo mam
sa me yuktatamo matah"(Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Six verse 47) "Sri Krishna said to Arjuna: And of all yogis, the one with great Faith who always abides in Me, thinks of Me within himself, and renders transcendental loving service to Me—he is the most intimately united with Me in yoga and is the highest of all. That is My opinion."
mayy avesya mano ye mam
te me yuktatama matah" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Twelve verse 2) "Sri Krishna said to Arjuna: O Arjuna, Those who fix their minds on My personal form and are always engaged in worshiping Me with great and transcendental faith are considered by Me to be most perfect."
"ye tu dharmamritam idam
bhaktas te ’tiva me priyah" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Twelve verse 20) "Sri Krishna said to Arjuna: O Arjuna, Those who follow this imperishable path of devotional service and who completely engage themselves with faith, making Me the supreme goal, are very, very dear to Me."
God remains with us
all the time & is always around us. He remains with us everywhere, wherever
we go. Just like space, always remains with us, wherever we go, similarly, God
remains with us, wherever we go. He is a constant companion of us. Only we need
to realize His presence.
God is all merciful & His Divine grace or Blessing or 'Kripa' (कृपा) can happen on all of us anywhere & everywhere. God is present everywhere i.e. He is omnipresent & is present at all places, all the times. He is there within your house, your living room & your place of worship. So it is not necessary to go to some outside place of worship only to find God but you can worship & get His Blessings within your home only. Below verse of Bhagwat Gita explains His omnipresent nature.
"Sri Krishna said: O Arjuna, Everywhere are His (God's) hands and feet, His eyes, heads and faces, and He has ears everywhere. In this way the Super Soul exists, pervading everything in this world."
So just have faith in God & get the mercy of God within your home only. God's merciful hand shall extend to your house if you show devotion in Him. When His grace shall happen then God shall give you, whatever, you are lacking in life & also shall protect your life & belongings. Then you shall always be protected in life by God. Such type of Special mercy of God shall only happen on you when you shall engage your mind in thinking of God, become God's devotee, offer obeisance's to God and shall always worship Him. Being completely absorbed in God, surely you shall become eligible for God's Special mercy.
"ananyas cintayanto mam
ye janah paryupasate
yoga-ksemam vahamy aham" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Nine verse 22) "Sri Krishna said to Arjuna: But those who always worship Me with exclusive devotion, meditating on My transcendental form—to them I carry what they lack, and I preserve what they have."
Its a beautiful chant for Lord Rama & Lord Krishna. It is the biggest powerful Mantra that is why it is called MahaMantra. Hare Rama Hare Krishna Chant, Kirtan is Divine Music. Daily chanting or Listening to it gives peace of mind & Love of God. Jai Sri Krishna
naivodvije para duratyaya-vaitaranyas tvad-virya-gayana-mahamrta-magna-cittah soce tato vimukha-cetasa indriyarthamaya- sukhaya bharam udvahato vimudhan
"My dear Lord," Prahlada says, "I am not very anxious for my own deliverance."
"I have no anxiety for myself because somehow or other I have been trained to be always Krishna conscious."
"There is only one source of anxiety for me." soce tato vimukha-cetasah: "I am anxious for those persons who are not Krishna conscious. That is my anxiety. For myself I have no anxiety, but I am thinking of those who are not Krishna conscious." !!
As per the Bhagwat Gita, devotion is the easiest method to develop "Bhaav" & get close to the God. God himself declares about the glory of devotion in Bhagwat Gita: "man-mana bhava mad-bhakto mad-yaji mam namaskuru mam evaishyasi satyam te pratijane priyo ’si me" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Eighteen verse 65)
"Sri Krishna says to Arjuna: Always think of Me, become My devotee, worship Me and offer your homage unto Me. Thus you will come to Me without fail. I promise you this because you are My very dear friend."
Its a beautiful chant for Lord Rama & Lord Krishna. It is the biggest powerful Mantra that is why it is called MahaMantra. Hare Rama Hare Krishna Chant, Kirtan is Divine Music. Daily chanting or Listening to it gives peace of mind & Love of God.
Here below is a beautiful story by Swami Vivekananda.
Once there was a great spiritual master who used to practise meditation in a lonely part of the forest & near the banks of a river. In that place there was a poor cowherd also who was very ignorant man & who used to tend his herd in that forest. He always used to see this spiritual master meditating for hours, practising austerities, living alone & studying scriptures. Somehow cowherd got curious what this spiritual master did, so he came to him and said: "Sir, can you teach me the way to God?" This spiritual master was a very learned, great man, and he replied: "How will you understand God, you are a common cowherd; ignorant one, go home and tend your cows and don't bother your head with such things". The poor fellow went away, but somehow a real want had come to him. So he could not rest, and he came again to the spiritual master, and said: "Sir, won't you teach me something about God?" Again he was repulsed: "Oh, you ignorant one, what can you understand of God? Go home". But he could not sleep, he could not eat; he must know something about God. So he came again, and the spiritual master, in order to quiet the man, as he was so insisting, said: "I'll teach you about God". The man asked: "Sir, what sort of being is God? What is his form? How does he look?" The spiritual master said: "God is just like the big bull in your herd; that is just God; God has become that big bull". The man believed him, and went back to his herd, and day and night he took that bull for God, and began to worship it. He brought the greenest grass for that bull, rested close to it, and gave it light, sat near it, and followed it. Thus days and months and years passed. His whole soul was there. One day he heard a voice, as it were, coming out of the bull. The bull speaks: "My son, my son". "Why, the bull is speaking! No, the bull cannot speak". Again he went away, and sat near meditating in great misery of his heart; he did not know anything. Again he heard the voice coming out of the bull: "My child, my child". He went near but thought: "No, the bull cannot speak". Then he went back again and sat despondent. Again the voice came and that time he found it out. It was from his own heart. He found that God was in him. Then he learned the wonderful truth of the Teacher of all Teachers: "I am with you always". And the poor cowherd learnt the whole mystery. Then he goes back to the spiritual master, and when he is at some distance, the spiritual master sees him. The master has been the most learned man in the country, practising austerity for years, meditating, studying, and this cowherd, the ignorant one, never studied a book, never learnt his letters, but he comes, his whole body, as it were, transfigured, his face changed, the light of heaven shining round his face. The spiritual master got up. "What is this change? Where did you get this?" "Sir, you gave me that". "How? I told you that about bull in joke".
"But I took it seriously, and I got everything. I prayed for God in the form of that bull, as God is everywhere & in all beings." So that bull was the God-symbol and that man worshipped the bull as his God-symbol, as God, and he got everything out of it. So that intense love for God, that desire, brings out everything. God is in ourselves, and the external world. God is everywhere. When our desire for God becomes strong, the God within us awakes & shows us His way.
Below are some verses from Bhagwat Gita which illustrates the same: "aham atma gudakesha sarva-bhutasaya-sthitah aham adis cha madhyam cha bhutanam anta eva cha" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Ten verse 20) "Sri Krishna said: I am the Super Soul, O Arjuna, seated in the hearts of all living entities. I am the beginning, the middle and the end of all beings." "adityanam aham vishnur jyotisam ravir amsuman maricir marutam asmi nakshatranam aham sasi" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Ten verse 21) "Sri Krishna said: Of the Adityas I am Vishnu, of lights I am the radiant sun, of the Maruts I am Marici, and among the stars I am the moon." "sarganam adir antas cha madhyam chaivaham arjuna adhyatma-vidya vidyanam vadah pravadatam aham" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Ten verse 32) "Sri Krishna said: Of all creations I am the beginning and the end and also the middle, O Arjuna. Of all sciences I am the spiritual science of the self, and among logicians I am the conclusive truth." "yac chapi sarva-bhutanam bijam tad aham arjuna na tad asti vina yat syan maya bhutam characharam" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Ten verse 39) "Sri Krishna said: Furthermore, O Arjuna, I am the generating seed of all existences. There is no being—moving or nonmoving—that can exist without Me."
We love any human being till breath runs through the nostrils. Once breath stops coming in the body then we don't have same affection with that person. Now why do we love our near & dear ones? Why it is that we love human beings in general? These are the same human bodies which if once dead are not loved the same way, when these are alive. What is there in these bodies which make these so lovable when these are breathing through the nostrils? Once it stops breathing, the same body is not that lovable.
The only answer to this is that there is someone besides this body, in the body, which makes it so lovable, otherwise how it is that this body of five nature elements seems so attractive & lovable. Yes, there is some other thing in this body which makes it so lovable & that thing is divine Soul. This divine Soul is nothing but a spark of universal omnipresent Soul, the Almighty God. All human beings are lovable due to the presence of this divine Soul in the body. All attractions in the body are due to this divine Soul only. Once this divine Soul leaves this body, it is called death of that body & all attractions, all love departs with the Soul.
God himself says in theBhagwat Gita that He Himself resides in the heart of all human beings. Below verse explains that:
"ishvarah sarva-bhutanam hrd-dese ’rjuna tishthati bhramayan sarva-bhutani yantrarudhani mayaya" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Eighteen verse 61) "Sri Krishna said: O Arjuna, The Lord / Supreme God dwells in the heart of all beings, who are mounted on the automation of this body, causing them by His illusive power of material energy to revolve (according to their actions) and is directing the wanderings of all living entities." "tam eva saranam gaccha sarva-bhavena bharata tat-prasadat param shantim sthanam prapsyasi sasvatam" (Bhagwat Gita: Chapter Eighteen verse 62) "Sri Krishna said: O Arjuna, surrender unto God fully. By His grace you will attain transcendental peace and the supreme and eternal abode."
