Spiritual Values to Be Developed – Bhagavad Gita

Humility, unpretentiousness, non-injury, forbearance, uprightness, service to the teacher, purity, steadiness, self-control. (Chapter 13, verse 7) The renunciation of sense objects, and also absence of egoism; reflection on the evils of birth, death, old age, sickness, and pain. (Chapter 13, verse 8) Non-attachment, non-identification of self with son, wife, home, and the rest, and constant even-mindedness in the occurrence of the desirable and the undesirable. (Chapter 13, verse 9) Unswerving devotion to Me by the Yoga of non-separation, resorting to sequestered places, distaste for the society of men. (Chapter 13, verse 10) Constant application to spiritual knowledge, understanding of the end of true knowledge: this is declared to be knowledge, and what is opposed to it is ignorance. (Chapter 13, verse 11)
