2. “It is I who remain seated in the heart of all creatures as the inner controller of all; and it is I who am the source of memory, knowledge and the ratiocinativefaculty. Again, I am the only object worth knowing through the Vedas; I alone am the origin of Vedānta and the knower of the Vedas too. — Krishna; Chapter 15, verse 15”

3. “All that we are is the result of what we have thought. We are made of our thoughts; we are molded by our thoughts.”

4. “You have the right to work, but never to the fruit of work. You should never engage in action for the sake of reward, nor should you long for inaction. 48 Perform work in this world, Arjuna, as a man established within himself – without selfish attachments, and alike in success and defeat. For yoga is perfect evenness of mind.”

5. “Those established in Self-realization control their senses instead of letting their senses control them.”

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

9. “The wise grieve neither for the living nor for the dead. There was never a time when you and I and all the kings gathered here have not existed and nor will there be a time when we will cease to exist.”

10. “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.”

11. “When meditation is mastered, the mind is unwavering like the flame of a lamp in a windless place.”

12. “This pleasure, appears as poison in the beginning but is like nectar in the end, comes by the grace of Self-knowledge.”

13. “Pleasures derived from the contact of senses with their objects are verily the source of misery, and have a beginning and an end.”

14. “This body [the miniature universe] may be called the field or creation. One who knows the creation is called the creator by the seers of truth.”
