Immortal verses from Srimad Bhagavad Gita – 1
October 28, 2009 1 Comment
In Srimad Bhagavad Gita, Lord Krishna imparts transcendental knowledge to Arjuna. Here are four such immortal verses taken from Chapter 4.
(These are from Srila Prabhupada’s writings, taken from here.)
Here is a pdf file of Srimad Bhagavad Gita in Devanagari script.
Translation in English:-
 The Personality of Godhead said: Many, many births both you and I have passed. I can remember all of them, but you cannot, O subduer of the enemy!
 Although I am unborn and My transcendental body never deteriorates, and although I am the Lord of all living entities, I still appear in every millennium in My original transcendental form.
 Whenever and wherever there is a decline in religious practice, O descendant of Bharata, and a predominant rise of irreligion — at that time I descend Myself.
 To deliver the pious and to annihilate the miscreants, as well as to reestablish the principles of religion, I Myself appear, millennium after millennium.
