Bhagavad Gita Chapter 9 reflections

Delusion breeds sorrows, knowledge produces joy. The universe is pain-ridden because it is delusion-projected. (9.18)

Wherever and whenever an egocentric action, whipped by selfish desire, is undertaken, gross and painful reactions must necessarily ensue. (9.9)

To live in the ego as a mere embodied self is to live self-exiled from all the Divine potentialities that one is heir to. (9.17)

Complete happiness and satisfaction, perfect contentment and peace, lie only in the innermost precincts of the heart and not in the extrovert fields of profit and success, glory and fame. (9.24)

A devotee who can constantly remember the Divine in all his contacts in life is alone the one who can give to life the respect and reverence that it deserves. (9.27)
