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

Sanjaya say:

1. Thus, Madhusudana (Sri Krishna) addressed these words to Arjuna overcome by compassion and sadness, and with his eyes darkened with tears:

The Lord said:

2. How has discouragement, unworthy of a nobleman, which leads neither to heaven nor to glory, invaded you at this dangerous moment?

3. Give in not to cowardice, O Partha (Arjuna); It is not like you. Shake this miserable and tenuous heart and arise, O Parantapa!

Key verse from the Bhagavad Gita

For Swami Vivekananda this verse contains the essence of the Bhagavad Gita.

Arjuna said:

4. How could I attack Bhishma with my arrows already Drona, O Madhusudana, who are worthy of reverence, O Arisudana (Krishna)?

5. It would be better to live on earthly alms than to kill these venerable elders. After having killed them, he would have nothing but pleasures stained with blood.

6. Nor do we know what is better for us, whether to conquer them or for them to conquer us, because here they are, before us, the children of Dhritirashtra and I could not wish to continue living after killing them.

7. My being is paralyzed by my weak heart; my mind does not discern duty; That's why I'm asking you; Tell me, I beg you, in clear language, what my duty is. I am Thy disciple; guide me; I see refuge in Thou.

8. Because I see nothing that can dispel the anguish that overwhelms my senses, even if I gained absolute power over a prosperous kingdom on earth or authority over the gods.

Sanjaya said:

9. Thus spoke Gudakesha Parantapa (Arjuna) to Hrishikesha Govinda (Krishna), and with the words “I will not fight” he fell silent.

10. To him who is between the two armies, afflicted with distress, O Bharata! Hrishikesha, although mocking, addressed him these words:

The Lord said:

11. You cry for those who should not cry and you utter vain words of wisdom. The wise man does not cry for the living or the dead.

12. Because I never stopped being Me, nor you, nor these kings; nor will any of us hereafter cease to be.

13. Just as Atman experiences childhood, youth and old age in his present body, so he will receive another body. The wise man is not deceived by this.

14. O Kaunteya! The contacts of the senses with their objects bring cold and heat, pleasure and pain; They come and go, they are transitory. Bear them, O Bharata.

15. Oh, the noblest of men! The wise man whose senses are not disturbed, who is not affected by pleasure or pain, is prepared for immortality.
