Tamil – “பிரம்மனை விட அதிக எதுவும் இல்லை. பிரபஞ்சத்தில் உள்ள எல்லாவற்றையும் ஒரு கழுத்தணியின் நூலில் நறுமணப் பொருள்களைப் போலவே இருக்கிறது.”

Hindi – “ब्रह्म से अधिक कुछ भी नहीं है । ब्रह्मांड में सब कुछ एक हार के धागे पर जवाहरात की तरह ब्रह्म पर अनुभूत है.”

Hindi – “ईश्वर की शांति उनके साथ है जिनके मन और आत्मा में सामंजस्य है, जो इच्छा और क्रोध से मुक्त है, जो अपनी आत्मा को जानते हैं|”

Bhagavad Gita as a beautiful quote on Karma which state as “Your rights is only to do work without thinking of a result,” meaning of which is very straight work hard as much as possible without thinking of result on what going to happen.

6. Destiny 

Words for Agnostics from Bhagwad Gita, “He who discards scriptural injunctions and acts according to his whims attains neither perfection, nor happiness, nor the supreme destination.”

English – “It is to live your own destiny imperfectly than to live an imitation of somebody of somebody else’s life with perfection.”

Hindi – “बुद्धिमान दुःखी न तो जीने के लिए और न ही मृतकों के लिए. वहां एक समय था जब तुम और मैं और सभी राजाओं यहां इकट्ठे हुए अस्तित्व में नहीं है और न ही वहां एक समय था जब हम अस्तित्व के लिए बंद हो जाएगा कभी नहीं था।”

Marathi – “ज्ञानी लोक जिवंत किंवा मृतांसाठी शोक करीत नाहीत. आपण आणि मी आणि येथे एकत्रित झालेले सर्व राज्ये अस्तित्वात नसतात आणि असेही एक वेळ नसेल जेव्हा आपण अस्तित्वात राहू.”

Marathi – “मी आत्मा सर्व प्राण्यांच्या हृदयात रहात आहे. मी मध्यभागी आणि सर्व प्राण्यांचा अंत आहे.”

 

10. The Feelings

“The marvel of the Bhagavad-Gita is its truly beautiful revelation of life’s wisdom which enables philosophy to blossom into religion.” – Herman Hesse.

English – “Feelings of heat and cold, pleasure and pain, are caused by the contact of the senses with their objects. they come and they go, never lasting long. you must accept them.”

Telugu – “వేడి మరియు జలుబు, ఆనందం మరియు నొప్పి వంటి భావాలు వారి వస్తువులతో ఇంద్రియాల సంపర్కం వలన సంభవిస్తాయి. వారు వస్తారు మరియు వారు వెళ్ళి, ఎప్పుడూ కాలం శాశ్వతం. వాటిని మీరు తప్పక అంగీకరించాలి.”

Tamil – “வெப்பம் மற்றும் ஜலதோஷம், இன்பம், வலி போன்ற உணர்வுகள், புலன்களை அவற்றின் பொருட்களுடன் தொடர்பு கொண்டு ஏற்படுகின்றன. அவர்கள் வந்து, நீண்ட எப்போதும் நீடித்த இல்லை. அவற்றை ஏற்றுக்கொள்ள வேண்டும்.”

Hindi – “गर्मी और सर्दी, खुशी और दर्द की भावनाओं, उनकी वस्तुओं के साथ इंद्रियों के संपर्क के कारण होते हैं । वे आते हैं और वे चलते हैं, कभी लंबे समय तक टिकाऊ । आपको उन्हें स्वीकार करना होगा।”

Marathi – “उष्णता आणि सर्दी, आनंद आणि वेदना यांचा अनुभव त्यांच्या वस्तूंसह इंद्रियेच्या संपर्कामुळे होतो. ते येतात आणि जातात, दीर्घकाळ टिकत नाहीत. आपण त्यांना स्वीकारणे आवश्यक आहे.”

 

11. Nature

Albert Einstein started assimilating the wisdom contained in Bhagavad-Gita in the later stages of his life. He deeply regretted the fact that he should have indulged in Bhagavad-Gita in the early formation years of his life.

 

English – “It is nature that causes all movement deluded by the ego, the fool harbors the perception that says ‘I did it.'”

Telugu – “ఇది అహం ద్వారా మోపబడిన అన్ని ఉద్యమాలకు కారణమయ్యే స్వభావం, ఫూల్ ‘నేను చేసాను’ అని చెప్పిన అవగాహనను ఆవిష్కరించింది.”

Tamil – “அது இயற்கையால் ஏமாற்றப்பட்ட இயக்கம் அனைத்தையும் இயற்கையால் இயற்கையாகவே இருக்கிறது, முட்டாள்தனமானது ‘நான் செய்தேன்’ என்கிற கருத்தை உணர்த்துகிறது.”

Hindi – “यह प्रकृति है कि सभी आंदोलन अहंकार द्वारा मोहित का कारण बनता है, मूर्ख धारणा है कि कहते हैं, ‘ मैं यह किया ‘।”

Marathi – “हे निसर्गामुळे अहंकाराने भ्रष्ट होणारे सर्व चळवळीचे कारण बनते, मूर्ख म्हणतो ‘मी केले ते’ असे समजते.”

 

12. What are we?

Thoughts about sex in it, “Sex is allowed only for the begetting of children, not for enjoyment. One can indulge in sex to beget a good child for the benefit of the family, society, and world. Otherwise, sex is against the rules and regulations of religious life.”

Telugu – “మనం ఇదిగో ఏం చేస్తాం, అదిగో ఇదిగో అంటూ.”
