Shri Krishna “Never was there a time when I did not exist, nor you; nor in the future shall any of us cease to be.”
Attachment leads to desire.
Fulfillment of desire leads to greed.
Unfulfillment of desire leads to anger.
That person who is not affected by happiness and distress, and remains steady in both, becomes eligible for Liberation.
You have a right to perform your prescribed duties, but you are not entitled to the fruits of your actions.
Perform your duty, abandoning attachment to success and failure. Such equanimity is called Yog.
The contact between the senses and the sense objects gives rise to the fleeting perception of happiness and distress.
One who remains unattached under all conditions, and is neither delighted by good fortune nor dejected by tribulation, he is a sage with perfect knowledge.
Anger leads to the clouding of judgment, which results in the bewildering of the memory.
When the memory is bewildered, the intellect gets destroyed; and when the intellect is destroyed, one is ruined.
That person, who gives up all material desires and lives free from a sense of greed, proprietorship, and egoism, attains perfect peace.
