And the path of karma yoga:

कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन।

मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भूर्मा ते सङ्गोऽस्त्वकर्मणि॥ २-४७

You have a right to work/ take the right action but never to the fruits (of your endeavours).
Let not the fruits of action be your motive, nor let your attachment be to inaction.

I love your passionate adjectives!
Feel free to add different translations to anything I have already posted.




Ch10v12

Arjuna prayed:
You are the supreme Brahman, the supreme abode,
the supreme purifier, the eternal, divine indwelling spirit,
the primal God, unborn and all-pervading.

I've look at love from both sides now,
and it's love's illusions I recall.



Oh, I'm sorry that was Joni Mitchell!

Remembering Ch 11 is about Arjuna being shown, finally, the Lord's Cosmic Form.

11v19----one translation..

With infinite power, with no beginning, middle or end, with
numberless arms, the moon and the sun as Your eyes,
I see You, the blazing fire as Your mouth, scorching this universe
with Your radiance.

Another translation:

You are the origin without beginning, middle or end.
You have numberless arms, and the sun and moon are among Your great unlimited eyes.
By Your own radiance You are heating this entire universe.
