Lord Krishna On The Subject Of Brahman
13:12. I shall reveal to you what must be known, what becoming perceived, leads to immortality: that is the highest Brahman without beginning, which is above being and non-being.
13:13. Everywhere are His hands and legs, His eyes, heads and mouths, omniscient, He exists in the world embracing everything.
13:14. Possessing all senses yet without organs of senses, not bound by anything yet maintain all, free from the three gunas yet using gunas.
13:15. Within and without all beings, motionless yet mobile, non-perceivable due to His subtlety, ever close yet non-expressively distant — such is He, eternal one.
13:16. Not divided among beings yet existing separately in each one, He is understood as the maintainer of all. He embraces everything with Himself and guides in development.
13:17. He, the Light of all the luminous is said to be beyond the bounds of the dark. He is Wisdom, the Goal of any wisdom, achieved by wisdom and situated in everyone’s heart.
14:26. He who is engaged in devotional service to Me with unshakable Love — that, having transcended the three gunas, deserves to become Brahman.
18:50. Learn from Me in brief how the seeker of Perfection attains Brahman, the highest state of Wisdom…
5:24. He who is happy within, who rejoices within, who is illuminated within, that yogi is capable of achieving the essence of Brahman and Nirvana in Brahman.
5:25. Nirvana in Brahman is attained by those rishis who are free from vices and duality, who curbed themselves and devote themselves to the welfare of all beings.
5:26. Those who are free from lust and anger, who are engaged in spiritual pursuits, with curbed thoughts, who have perceived the Atman — those are very close to Nirvana in Brahman.
6:27. The highest happiness will be reached by the yogi…, when he is freed from sin and identified with Brahman.
6:28. He who brought himself into harmony and rejected vices, that yogi experiences endless bliss from the contact with Brahman.
18:51. With completely purified consciousness, having conquered himself through perseverance, detached from anything external, freed from passion and hatred,
18:52. Living in a secluded place and frugal, controlling his speech, body and mind, constantly in meditation and dispassion,
18:53. Without false ego, violence, arrogance, lust, anger, greed, full of faith and selflessness — such a person is worthy of becoming Brahman.
5:20. Whose mind is clear and calm, who attains Brahmans and is situated in Brahman, he neither rejoices upon receiving something pleasant nor laments upon obtaining something unpleasant.
5:21. He who is not attached to gratification of his senses by the external and who finds enjoyment in the Atman, he, having attained oneness with Brahman, tastes the eternal bliss.
18:54. Having attained eternity, in merging with Brahman, he never laments nor desires anything. Equally disposed to every living being he reaches the highest Love to Me.
