Bhagavad-Gita

The Song Of God
The Yoga of Meditation
Sri Krishna speaks: pg 63

Let him who would climb
In meditation
To heights of the highest
Union with Brahman
Take for his path
The Yoga of action;
Then when he nears
The height of oneness
His acts will fall from him,
His path will be tranquil.

Devotion To The Supreme Spirit
Sri Krishna speaks; Pg 110

There is a fig tree
In ancient story,
The giant Aswattha,
The everlasting,
Rooted in heaven,
Its branches earthward;
Each of its leaves
Is a song of the Vedas,
And he knows it
Knows all the Vedas.

Downward and upward
Its branches bending
Are fed by the gunas,
The buds it puts forth
Are the things of the senses,
Roots it has also
Reaching downward
Into this world,
The roots of man's action.

What its form is,
Its end and beginning,
Its very nature,
Can never be known here.
