Teachings from Chapter 11 of the Bhagavad Gita

No authority or effectiveness in life is possible unless the man in power has self control and self mastery. No man can live a happy and mighty life unless he has conquered his passions and crowned himself with kingship over himself. (11.17)
The eternal Truth is one and the same, everywhere, at all times; only Its manifestations are varied and the degree of Divinity sparkling from each differs according to the grossness or subtlety of the equipment through which the same Infinite Reality expresses itself. (11.17)
Each man sees the world as he himself is. We look at the world through the windows of our mind; as our mind is, so is the world to us. (11.20)
That terrible-looking monstrous happening called ‘death,’ when approached in a correct perspective and with true understanding, unmasks itself to reveal a gladdening cheerful face. (11.29)
