Arjuna said: You are the Supreme Brahman, the Supreme refuge, and the most pure.
You are the eternal Supreme Person, the most effulgent, the original divinity, unborn and all-pervading.
All the sages such as Narada, Asita, Devala and Vyasa have stated this,
just as You have declared this unto me.


Ch 10 v12-13


Hi, deepsoul, long time....this is what I meant by changes...Now, Arjuna speaks
at verse 12.
Yes, I have heard of that book, a friend has it that has many health issues.
You are an inspiration of consistency and focus.

What are we if not what we give our attention to? (Rhetorical...)

Chapter 9 v.26 and 27.

"􀂙patraṁ puṣpaṁ phalaṁ toyaṁ yo me bhaktyā prayacchati
tad ahaṁ bhaktyupahṛtam aśnāmi prayatātmanaḥ
􀂙yat karoṣi yad aśnāsi yaj juhoṣi dadāsi yat
yat tapasyasi kaunteya tat kuruṣva madarpaṇaṁ

Whoever offers me with devotion and a pure mind, a leaf, a flower, a fruit
or a little water I accept.
Whatever thou doest, whatever thou eatest, whatever thou offerest in
sacrifice, whatever thou givest, whatever thou practisest as austerity, O
Arjuna, do it as an offering unto me.


From song of God. Commentary on the Bhagavadgita by Swami Venkatesanda:

"These two verses are life-transforming. Our Master used to recite verse 26 whenever he
gave anything to anybody, thus revealing his attitude worship of the indwelling God."


The Master here referred to in the text is the great yogi Swami Shivananda of Rishikesh.
This free online commentary by venkatesanda is beautiful.

My favourite chapter right now for study contemplation of the Gita is chapter 9. It's Sublime....

O Krishna, O supreme mystic, how shall I constantly think of You,
and how shall I know You?
In what various forms are You to be remembered,
O Supreme Personality of Godhead?


Ch 10v17

And He answers:

I am the Supersoul, O Arjuna, seated in the hearts of all living entities.
I am the beginning, the middle and the end of all beings.

Ch 10v20

Welcome, you guys.

Furthermore, O Arjuna, I am the generating seed of all existences.
There is no being-moving or unmoving-that can exist without Me.

ch10 v39

My favourite one at the moment:

kleśo ’dhika-taras teṣām
avyaktāsakta-cetasām
avyaktā hi gatir duḥkhaṁ
dehavadbhir avāpyate

Translation:

For those whose minds are attached to the unmanifested, impersonal feature of the Supreme, advancement is very troublesome. To make progress in that discipline is always difficult for those who are embodied.

- Bhagavad Gita 12.5

But those who fully worship the unmanifested,
that which lies beyond the perception of the senses,
the all-pervading, inconceivable, fixed, and
immovable-the impersonal conception of the
Absolute Truth-by controlling the various senses and
being equally disposed to everyone, such persons,

engaged in the welfare of all, at last achieve Me.


Ch12 v 3-4
