|Even the mind of the wise man who labours for perfection is carried away by the vehement insistence of the senses, O son of Kunti. (2:60)|
|For certain is death for the born|
And certain is birth for the dead;
Therefore over the inevitable
Thou shouldst not grieve.
|On action alone be thy interest,|
Never on its fruits.
Let not the fruits of action be thy motive,
Nor be thy attachment to inaction.
|Only the interactions of the senses and sense objects give cold,heat,pleasure and pain. These are temporary, appearing and disappearing; therefore learn to tolerate without being disturbed (2.14)|
