Quotes by Bhagavad Gita
Faith means… unflinching trust in something sublime.
Bhagavad Gita 2.41,
Ignorant and faithless persons who doubt the revealed scriptures do not attain God consciousness; they fall down. For the doubting soul there is happiness neither in this world nor in the next.
Srimad Bhaagavatam also affirms that one should follow in the footsteps of great devotees and that is the way of progress on the path of spiritual realization. The king or the executive head of a state, the father and the school teacher are all considered to be natural leaders of the innocent people in general. All such natural leaders have a great responsibility to their dependents. Therefore, they must be conversant with standard books of moral and spiritual codes.
If you become conscious of Me, (Lord Krishna) you will pass over all the obstacles of conditioned life by My grace. If, however, you do not work in such consciousness, but act through false ego, not listening to Me, you will be lost.
Remembrance of Krishna is not possible for the impure soul who has not practiced Krishna consciousness in devotional service. Therefore, one should practice Krishna consciousness from the very beginning of life. If one wants to achieve success at the end of his life, the process of remembering Krishna is essential. Therefore, one should constantly and incessantly chant the Hare Krishna Maha Mantra.
The revealed scriptures, like Manu-samhitha and similar other scriptures, are considered the standard books to be followed by human society. Thus, the leader’s teaching should be based on the principles of such standard saastras. One who desires to improve himself must follow the standard rules as they are practiced by the great teachers.
