Bhagavad Gita – Akshara Parabrahman Yoga

The indestructible, the Supreme, is Brahman. The creative force that brings beings into existence is called ‘karma’.

He who meditates on me at the time of death is absorbed into me.

The thoughts at the time of death determine the character of the next birth.

Always think of Lord Krishna and do your work. When the mind and understanding is concentrated on Krishna, one reaches the feet of Lord.
All worlds come and go. Beings in such world continuously pass through the cycle of birth and death. But he who attains me never takes another birth.
Bhagavad Gita – Akshara Parabrahman Yoga
