Indestructible tree ashvattha that has its root above and its branches below. Bhagavad Gita

Fifteen first verses of this chapter of the Bhagavad Gita (Yoga Philosophy)

The Lord said:

1. The Blessed Lord said that they (sages) speak of the indestructible Ashvattha tree which has its root above and its branches below, whose leaves are the Vedic meters or hymns: he who knows is a knower of the Vedas.

2. Above and below its branches extend, flowering because of the Gunas, having the objects of the senses as stems; In the deep interior of the world of men its roots branch, in the form of the consequences of action.

3. Its form as such is not perceived here, nor in its end, nor in its beginning, nor in its base. Let man first strike down the deep-rooted Ashvattha with the sure weapon of detachment;

4. Pray to gain this refuge from which there is no return and seek refuge in the primal Being from whom this ancient world of action emanated.

5. To that imperishable refuge go those enlightened souls, without pride or delusion, who have triumphed over the stains of attachment, who are always in harmony with the Supreme, whose passions have died, who are exempt from the pairs of opposites, like the pleasure and pain.

6. Neither the sun, nor the moon, nor fire illuminate it; the men who arrive there do not return, that is My supreme abode.

7. Actually, a part of Myself has been the eternal Jiva in this world of life, and attracts the mind and the five senses from their place in Prakriti.

8. When the Lord (of the body) obtains a body and when he abandons it, he carries them with him wherever he wants to go, as the wind carries the aromas of the fields of flowers.

9. Having established himself in the senses (hearing, eye, touch, taste and smell) as well as in the mind, through them he enjoys the objects of him.

10. The ignorant do not perceive Him when He goes out or sits (in a body) or enjoys (the sensory objects) in association with the Gunas; It is those gifted with the eye of knowledge who only see Him.

11. The Yogis who strive see Him settled in themselves; fools who have not purified themselves do not see Him, even though they try.

12. The light of the sun that illuminates the entire universe and that is in the moon and in the fire, that light, you have to know that it is Mine;

13. It is I, who penetrating the earth, support all beings with My strength, and becoming the moon, the essence of all sap, I nourish all herbs;

14. It is I who become the Fire Vaishvanara (of the universal man) and entering the bodies of everything that breathes, I assimilate the four types of food with the help of inhalation and exhalation

15. I am settled in the hearts of all, from Me comes the memory, the knowledge and the dispelling of doubts; It is I who must be known in all the Vedas, I, the author of Vedanta and the knower of the Vedas.
