संस्कृतम्

जीवनस्य लक्ष्यमेव संस्कृतस्य वर्धनम्

भगवद्गीता द्वादशोऽध्यायः — केचित् श्लोकाः

मय्येव मन आधत्स्व मयि बुद्धिं निवेशय।
निवसिष्यसि मय्येव अत ऊर्ध्वं न संश्यः॥१२-८॥
mayyeva mana ādhatsva mayi buddhiṁ niveśaya|
nivasiṣyasi mayyeva ata ūrdhvaṁ na saṁśyaḥ||12-8||

"Fix your mind on Me, and establish your intellect in Me alone;
Thereafter you will abide solely in Me. There is no doubt about it."

अथ चित्तम् समाधातुं न शक्नोषि मयि स्थिरम्।
अभ्यासयोगेन ततो मामिच्छप्तुम् धनञ्जय॥१२-९॥
atha cittam samādhātuṁ na śaknoṣi mayi sthiram|
abhyāsayogena tato māmicchaptum dhanañjaya||12-9||

"If you can not steadily fix the mind on Me, Arjuna;
Then seek to attain Me through the yoga of repeated practice."

अभ्यासेऽप्यसमर्थोऽसि मत्कर्म परमो भव।
मदर्थमपि कर्माणि कुर्वन् सिद्धिमवाप्स्यसि॥१२-१०॥
abhyāse'pyasamartho'si matkarma paramo bhava|
madarthamapi karmāṇi kurvan siddhimavāpsyasi||12-10||

"If you are unequal even to the pursuit of such practice, be intent to work for Me;
you shall attain perfection (in the shape of My realization) even by performing actions for My sake."

अथेतदप्यशक्तोऽसि कर्तुम् मद्योगमाश्रितः।
सर्वकर्मफलत्यागम् ततः कुरु यतात्मावान्॥१२-११॥
athetadapyaśakto'si kartum madyogamāśritaḥ|
sarvakarmaphalatyāgam tataḥ kuru yatātmāvān||12-11||

"If, taking recourse to the yoga of My realization, you are unable even to do this;
Then, subduing your mind and intellect etc. relinquish the fruit of all actions."

श्रेयो हि ज्ञानमभ्यासाज्ज्ञानाद्‌ध्यानम् विशिष्यते।
ध्यनात्कर्मफलत्यागस्त्यागाच्छन्तिरनन्तरम्॥१२-१२॥
śreyo hi jñānamabhyāsājjñāanāddhyānam viśiṣyate|
dhyanātkarmaphalatyāgastyāgācchantiranantaram||12-12||

"Knowledge is better than practice ( without discernment ), meditation on God is superior to Knowledge, and renunciation of fruit of actions is even superior to meditation; for peace immediately follows from renunciation. "
