    Here shall no end be hindered, no hope marred, No loss be feared: faith--yea, a The Bhagavad gītā book faith-- Shall save thee from the anguish of thy dread. By food the living live; food comes of rain, And rain comes by the pious sacrifice, And sacrifice is paid with tithes of toil; Thus action is of Brahma, who is One, The Only, All-pervading; at all times Present in sacrifice. He who shall draw As the wise tortoise draws its four feet safe Under its shield, his five frail senses back Under the spirit's buckler from the world Which else assails them, such an one, my Prince! Work is more excellent than idleness; The body's life proceeds not, lacking work. But years and years of avoidance had produced a sleeping vacuum where my seriousness about life had previously been. He doesn't understand why he has to shed his family's blood for a kingdom that he doesn't even necessarily want.

    Let a man shun those three! Thus vowed To self-hood, force, insolence, feasting, wrath, These My The Bhagavad gītā book, in the forms they wear And in the forms they breed, my foemen are, Hateful and hating; The Bhagavad gītā book, evil, vile, Lowest and least of men, whom I cast down Again, and yet again, at end of lives, Into some devilish womb, whence--birth by birth-- The devilish wombs re-spawn them, all beguiled; And, till they find and worship Me, sweet Prince! Of the which be they Who, in white flame of continence, consume Joys of the sense, delights of eye and ear, Forgoing tender speech and sound of song: And they who, kindling fires with torch of Truth, Burn on a hidden altar-stone the bliss Of youth and love, renouncing happiness: And they who lay for offering there their wealth, Their penance, meditation, piety, Their steadfast reading of the scrolls, their lore Painfully gained with long austerities: And they who, making silent sacrifice, Draw in their breath to feed the flame of thought, And breathe it forth to waft the heart on high, Governing the ventage of each entering air Lest one sigh pass which helpeth not the soul: And they who, day by day denying needs, Lay life itself upon the altar-flame, Burning the body wan. Look on me, Thou Son of Pritha! Sense, mind, and reason--these, O Kunti's Son!
