Maharishi Mahesh Yogi On The Bhagavad-Gita
Maharishi Mahesh Yogi
A commentary on the Bhagavad Gita designed to restore the fundamental truths of the teachings delivered by the Lord Krishna to Arjuna.

1 "As the Upanishad says, 'Dvitiyad vai bhayam bhavati: Certainly fear is born of duality.' Whenever and wherever there is a sense of two, fear or suffering can exist."

2 "'That thou art', declare the Upanishads – unbounded eternal Being."

3 "When we investigate the invisible mechanics of nature, we find everything in the universe is directly connected with everything else. Everything is constantly being influenced by everything else. No wave of the ocean is independent of any other. Each certainly has its individuality, but it is not isolated from the influence of other waves….The life of any individual is a wave in the ocean of cosmic life, where every wave constantly influences the course of every other."

4 "The self is eternal – life continues to be, it is everlasting."

5 "Everything is in its essence everlasting."

6 "When a man constantly does good he becomes a centre of harmonious vibrations which, enjoyed by the people around him, naturally create warmth and love in their hearts."

7 "When suffering grows, the invincible force of nature moves to set man's vision right and establish a way of life which will again fulfil the high purpose of his existence. The long history of the world records many such periods in which the ideal pattern of life is first forgotten and then restored to man."

8 "Knowledge of the self and Being brings equanimity of mind." Bhagavad Gita, ch. II, v. 38
