Lord Krishna, who is none other than the supreme God Vishnu incarnated in the form of human to restore Dharma. He taught us everything, about Life, Love, Happiness, Dharma, Moksha (Liberation), Bhakti, Yoga, Meditation, philosophy, Truth. When Arjuna was faced with the dilemma of going to battle with his own relatives, teachers and acquaintances, he turned to Krishna for advice. The ensuing monologue where Krishna enunciated the philosophy of life is recorded in the ancient scripture of Bhagavad Gita.
In today’s world of unhappiness, gloom and disputes, Lord Krishna’s teachings help a lot to clear all the sorrow and doubts in our mind. You can find answers to your questions in Bhagawad Gita.

Here are 10 inspiring words by Lord Krishna from The Bhagvad Gita.

1. “Arjun, he who is always aware of the divine, and unites with the divine, within and without, will always be at peace and blissful”
– Chapter 6, verse 15

2. “Calmness, gentleness, silence, self-restraint, and purity: these are the disciplines of the mind.”
– Chapter 17, verse 16

3. “Only when a person responds to the joys and sorrows of others as if they were his own, he has attained the highest state of spiritual union.”
– Chapter 6, verse 32.

4. “There are three gates to this self-destructive hell – lust, anger, and greed. Renounce these three.”
– Chapter 16, verse 21

5. “Arjuna, one who gives up conceit and ownership and craving, in other words the sense of ‘I’, ‘mine’, and ‘me’, will always fine peace.”
– Chapter 2, verse 71

6. “Arjuna, the wise look at a learned man, an outcaste, a cow, an elephant or a dog with an equal eye. A person who sees equality in all, and is equanimous in all pleasant and unpleasant situations, has realised the divine for the divine is impartial too.”
– Chapter 5, verse 18 to 20 (paraphrased)

7. “If you want to see the brave, look to those who can return love for hatred. If you want to see heroic, look to those who can forgive.”

8. “Whenever and wherever there is a decline in virtue/religious practice, O Arjuna, and a predominant rise of injustice/irreligion—at that time I manifest Myself as an embodied being, to deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to reestablish the principles of religion, I Myself appear, millennium after millennium.”
– Chapter 4, verse 7 and 8 (paraphrased)

9. “Arjuna, he who does not hate anyone, is friendly and compassionate always, is not possessive and self-indulgent, stable in pleasure and pain, forgiving, contained, controlled and firm in his love for me, in heart and head, is much loved by me.”
– Chapter 12, verses 13 and 14 (paraphrased)

10. “Arjuna, people worship limited deities, limited as they are by their nature and their yearnings. From me comes their faith. From me comes fulfillment of their faith. The restricted stay restrained. Those who shatter the boundaries discover me: the Limitless.”
– Chapter 7, verse 20 to 23 (paraphrased)

Gita does not aspire for perfection. Hence, there are no rules in Gita, only three paths to establish relationships: Karma, Bhakti and Gyana that deal with human conduct, emotions and identity.
Krishna knows that in a world without boundaries, there will always be another chance, and then another.
“Krishna, by your grace I’m no longer deluded or confused. I remember what I am supposed to do. I am firm. I shall do as you say.” – Arjun to Lord Krishna. Chapter 18, verse 73.
