My Five Memorised Shlokas of Bhagwat Gita

My Five Memorised Shlokas of Bhagwat Gita

Hey! Hope you all are doing fine in your lives and enjoying the monsoon days. Do let me know anything interesting you are doing. In Today’s blog, I would like to let you know a few of my memorized Shlokas of Bhagwat Gita.

In 2015, after college, I was studying for UPSC, which I could not clear, but thankfully I am doing a job today though in a private sector. Though I am happy today, yes, sometimes I regret it when I look back at my failures of that time.

But other times, I think that was the only time that has made me a strong and wiser person, a humble and empathetic woman. Otherwise, I was just a dumb girl when I passed out of college, not even knowing how does it feel to be another side of the world when you are being judged, criticized, and most importantly not understood by society, family, and your own friends. 

That time will always be the foundation stone of wisdom in my life. That time, I developed the habit of reading in my daily schedule. Bhagwat Gita was one of the very first books I read at that time.

I brought Vivekanand’s interpretation of Bhagwat Gita and read it word to word. Then later after a few months, I brought the Bhagwat Gita explained by Swami Prabhupada. Also, I have read Bhagwat Gita by Devdutt Patnaik too. 

These are so profound books, that every time you read it, you will find different things to connect with your life. I revisited the Gita in this lockdown and would like to share my five thumb shlokas from Gita. 

The first shloka from Bhagwat Gita

नैनं छिद्रन्ति शस्त्राणि नैनं दहति पावक: ।

न चैनं क्लेदयन्त्यापो न शोषयति मारुत ॥

(द्वितीय अध्याय, श्लोक 23)

This has been the most famous Shloka of Bhagwat Gita. Mostly reminded to us, when someone leaves our lives. The pain of losing someone close to our lives is unbearable. But death is an inevitable truth that will come to all of us and loved ones sooner or later. 

Death is painful because even the soul does not want to leave the body. This shloka of Bhagwat Gita explains that souls cannot be injured through weapons, fire, water, or wind. It can neither die nor born, it is ever-present in the universe. So, whoever you have lost, must be present somewhere else in the world in some other form.

My Second Favourite Bhagwat Gita Shloka

श्रेष्ठस्तत्तदेवेतरो जन:।

स यत्प्रमाणं कुरुते लोकस्तदनुवर्तते॥

(तृतीय अध्याय, श्लोक 21)

According to Gita, there are two types of people in the world. One comes in the category of great ones, and another are commoners. So, this shloka states that whatever the great person does, the commoners follow. Whatever standards they set in their lives; the commoners will try to pursue it. 

Thus, Gita states, one should always perform their duties like the great ones who have set the best examples in society. I am sure we all have such kind of personalities and figures in our mind that we would like to follow them in our lives, in our actions, and in our thoughts.

My Third Favourite Bhagwat Gita Shloka

उद्धरेदात्मनात्मानं नात्मानमवसादयेत्।

आत्मैव ह्रात्मनो बन्धुरात्मैव रिपुरात्मन:॥

(षष्ठ अध्याय, श्लोक 5)

This shloka from the 6th Chapter states that “You are the best friend of yourself and you can also become an enemy of yourself”. Your mind has both the power to become your friend or your enemy. If you have control over your mind, you can become the best friend of your own self.

My Fourth Favourite Shloka

यस्मान्नोद्विजते लोको लोकान्नोद्विजते च य: ।

हर्षामर्षभयोद्वेगैर्मुक्तो य: स च मे प्रिय:॥

(द्वादश अध्याय, श्लोक 15)

This shloka teaches you to be stoic means the one who is not affected by pleasure or pain, failure or success, rich or poor, anger, or happiness. The one who maintains a calm balance inside himself in all the emotions of life. 

In short, a sanyasi from inside and a worldly man from outside. Nothing should affect you deep inside self. Just stay calm and composed like Buddha.

My Fifth Favourite Shloka

सर्वधर्मान्परित्यज्य मामेकं शरणं व्रज।

अहं त्वां सर्वपापेभ्यो मोक्षयिष्यामि मा शुच:॥

(अष्टादश अध्याय, श्लोक 66)

This is one of the Shlokas of Bhagwat Gita from the 18th chapter, states that abandon all the religions and surrender yourself to him who is referred to as God here. He shall liberate you from all the sins, and you should not fear anymore once you surrender completely to him.

This is the most insightful shloka to me, as it says, that religion and god are different. We don’t need religion to reach God.

Supposingly, you wake up one day, and you have no religion, how will you connect to God. I leave the answer of this question to you only. Forget your religion for a moment, and answer yourself this very simple question, how will you reach to God now?

And one last thing is, understanding the correct interpretation of Bhagwat Gita is more important than reading Bhagwat Gita. If you will not understand it, just read the words, you will not get it ever. 

And it is not a religious book, it is a book of the moral conduct of a warrior, that how a warrior should behave on a battlefield. And we all are warriors in some way in our lives. 

Sorry, this blog became too long due to my overwhelming of knowledge flowing on its own.

A very very big thank you for reading this blog. I owe my words to your valuable time. Thank you endlessly with folded hands.

Signing off!

See you next Sunday – Be healthy, Be Happy
