Bhagavad Gita – Dhyana Yoga Teachings

He who does the work that is his duty to do, without looking for rewards or the fruits of this work – that man, O Arjuna, is the perfect mystic.

A person who has truly renounced is he who worships through his work, who renounces the desires of work, but still does his duty.

The soul of the man who lives under self-control and is at peace is centered on itself. It responds in the same way to pleasure and pain, heat and cold, glory and shame.

He is the Yogi, the mystic who is satisfied with light and truth, who dwells in transcendence and submits his senses, seeing dirt, rock and gold all as the same, all as one. And he carries this with him, treating equally his comrades, friends, acquaintances, strangers, lovers, enemies and kinsmen – loving all of them whether they are evil or good.
