Well would you look at that. Instead of listening to the Bhagvad Gita on YouTube and needing to keep the screen on the whole time, now you can download it on iMusic. Fabulous.
I listen to it in the car, while I’m folding the laundry, cooking or strap-hanging on my train home. For me, the point is that I’m not closely listening, but that I know it because I’ve heard it so many times. I must have listened to this intensely amazing scripture dozens of times.
Here’s a snippet from Chapter 4:
”Chapter 4, Verse 18
One who sees inaction in action, and action in inaction, is intelligent among men, and he is in the tranecendental position, although engaged in all sorts of activities.
Chapter 4, Verse 19
One is understood to be in full knowledge whose every act is devoid of desire for sense gratification. He is said by sages to be a worker whose fruitive action is burned up by the fire of perfect knowledge.
Chapter 4, Verse 20
Abandoning all attachment to the results of his activities, ever satisfied and independant, he performs no fruitive action, although engaged in all kinds of undertakings.
Chapter 4, Verse 21
Such a man of understanding acts with mind and intelligence perfectly controlled, gives up all sense of proprietorship over his possessions and acts only for the bare necessities of life. Thus working, he is not affected by sinful reactions.
Chapter 4, Verse 22
He who is satisfied with gain which comes of its own accord, who is free from duality and does not envy, who is steady both in success and failure, is never entangled, although performing actions.
Chapter 4, Verse 23
The work of a man who is unattached to the modes of material nature and who is fully situated in transcendental knowledge merges entirely into transcendence.
Chapter 4, Verse 24
A person who is fully absorbed in Krsna consciousness is sure to attain the spiritual kingdom because of his full contribution to spiritual activities, in which the consummation is absolute and that which is offered is of the same spiritual nature.”
