Krishna & Arjuna conversing on the battlefield
I have just started reading thru the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi's translation & commentary of The Bhagavad-Gita. I have read quite a few different translations over the past 34 years but in light of what I have only in the past year learnt with regard to Conscious Mental Rest, I now find that the Maharishi's commentary rings the bell most clearly & sweetly as far as getting my whole attention!
And today I just felt that it would be nice to share some things that stand out for me as I come across them - so here is today's highlight ~
Commentary from Ch.2, verse 17:
"... so the same omnipresent Being, shining through different nervous systems, appears as different and forms the spirit, the subjective aspect of man's personality. When the nervous system is pure, Being reflects more and the spirit is more powerful, the mind more effective. When the nervous system is at its purest, then Being reflects in all its fullness, and the inner individuality of the spirit gains the level of unlimited eternal Being. Thus it is clear that in its essential nature the spirit is undying and omnipresent. This explains the universality of individuality."
