10 Quotes From Bhagvad Gita which can release you from the cycle of Expectations

To Expect or Not to Expect- That is the Question

You may have often heard people saying, “Stop expecting” But this is very difficult to practice in reality. Aren’t expectations natural part of human being? But Bhagvad Gita answers this question differently. Here are 10 quotes from the greatest philosophical work ever written in the world, these quotes will help you realise why expectations lead to nothing but pain and despair.

  1. “A gift is pure when it is given from the heart to the right person at the right time and at the right place, and when we expect nothing in return”
  2. “No one who does good work will ever come to a bad end, either here or in the world to come”
  3. “The peace of God is with them whose mind and soul is in harmony, who are free from desire and wrath, who know their own soul.”
  4. “You have the right to work, but never to the fruit of work. You should never engage in action for the sake of reward, nor should you long for inaction. Perform work in this world, Arjuna, as a man established within himself - without selfish attachments, and alike in success and defeat.”
  5. “The non-permanent appearance of happiness and distress, and their disappearance in due course, are like the appearance and disappearance of winter and summer seasons. They arise from sense perception, and one must learn to tolerate them without being disturbed.”
  6. “Selfish action imprisons the world. Act selflessly, without any thought of personal profit.”
  7. “The cause of the distress of a living entity is forgetfulness of his relationship with God.”
  8. “Our mistake is in taking this for ultimate reality, like the dreamer thinking that nothing is real except his dream.”
  9. “Pleasures conceived in the world of the senses have a beginning and an end and give birth to misery, Arjuna.”
  10. “For man, mind is the cause of bondage and mind is the cause of liberation. Mind absorbed in sense objects is the cause of bondage, and mind detached from the sense objects is the cause of liberation.”

It is rightly said that Bhagvad Gita provides answer to all problems. We hope yours have been answered as well.
