Bhagavad Gita Quotes

Here are some of my very favorite Bhagavad Gita quotes. Bare in mind that the Bhagavad Gita is not the “Bible of Hinduism.” Hinduism does not depend on a book, but is a growing and living tradition. That said, the Gita is overflowing with wisdom, insight, and brilliance. It’s philosophies can definitely help guide you to a life of contentment and happiness. Even though there are many beautiful and pithy sayings from the Bhagavad Gita, I definitely recommend checking out the Bhagavad Gita Read-Along/Study we are doing. Find the posts here:

Bhagavad Gita Study

“Out of compassion for them, I, lodged in their self, lift the blazing lamp of knowledge and destroy the darkness which is born of the ignorance.”

“Take it thus, that I am here in this world and everywhere. I support this entire universe with an infinitesimal portion of Myself.”

“I am the mastery and power of all who rule and tame and vanquish and the policy of all who succeed and conquer; I am the silence of things secret and the knowledge of the knower.”

“All paths lead to Me.”


“There is no rebirth imposed on the soul that comes to Me.”

“If thy mind and thy understanding are always fixed on and given up to Me, to Me thou shalt surely come.”

“The power of God is with you at all times; through the activities of mind, senses, breathing, and emotions; and is constantly doing all the work using you as a mere instrument.”

“In battle, in the forest, at the precipice in the mountains, On the dark great sea, in the midst of javelins and arrows, In sleep, in confusion, in the depths of shame, The good deeds a man has done before defend him”

“As a mirror is obscured by dust, so the intellect is obscured by anger.”

bhagavad gita quotes

“There has never been a time when you and I have not existed, nor will there be a time when we will cease to exist. As the same person inhabits the body through childhood, youth, and old age, so too at the time of death he attains another body. The wise are not deluded by these changes.”

“Fear not what is not real, never was and never will be. What is real, always was and cannot be destroyed.”

“Setting aside all noble deeds, just surrender completely to the will of God. I shall liberate you from all sins. Do not grieve.”

“All sorrows are destroyed upon attainment of tranquility. The intellect of such a tranquil person soon becomes completely steady.”

“Knowledge is better than mere ritualistic practice.”

“I am seated in the hearts of all beings.”

bhagavad gita quotes

“I am the goal, the supporter, the Lord, the witness, the abode, the refuge, the friend, the origin, the dissolution, the foundation, the substratum, and the imperishable seed.”

“One is considered the best yogi who regards every being like oneself, and who can feel the pain and pleasures of others as one’s own.”

“With their minds absorbed in Me, with their lives surrendered unto Me, always enlightening each other by talking about Me; they remain ever content and delighted.”

“There is nothing higher than Brahman. Everything in the universe is strung on Brahman like jewels on the thread of a necklace.”

“I am the origin of all. Everything emanates from Me. Understanding this, the wise ones worship Me with love and devotion.”

bhagavad gita quotes

“Practice to look upon all creatures as Myself in thought, word, and deed; and mentally bow down to them.”

“As the blazing fire reduces wood to ashes, similarly, the fire of Self-knowledge reduces all Karma to ashes.”

“Undivided, yet appears as if divided in beings; He, the object of knowledge, is the creator, sustainer, and destroyer of (all) beings.”

“Still your mind in me, still yourself in me, and without a doubt you shall be united with me, Lord of Love, dwelling in your heart.”

“Delusion arises from anger. The mind is bewildered by delusion. Reasoning is destroyed when the mind is bewildered. One falls down when reasoning is destroyed.”

“If you want to see the brave, look at those who can forgive.”

“They alone see truly who see the Lord the same in every creature.”

bhagavad gita quotes

“Not by refraining from action does man attain freedom from action. Not by mere renunciation does he attain supreme perfection.”

“The mind is restless and difficult to restrain, but it is subdued by practice.”

“Those who worship other Gods with faith and devotion also worship Me.”

“As the heat of a fire reduces wood to ashes, the fire of knowledge burns to ashes all karma.”
