Bhagavad Gita VI-13-14. Yogi firm in Brahmacharya, fixing his eyes on his nose

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

The Lord said:

1. He who performs all obligatory actions, without depending on their fruits, is a Sannyasin and a Yogi, not the man who neglects the “sacrificial fire” nor the one who neglects the action.

2. That which is called Sannyasa (renunciation), know it as yoga, O Pandava; because no one can become a yogi without having renounced his selfish purposes

3. For that man who seeks to crown the heights of yoga, action is his means; for that same man, when he has already crowned them, inaction is the means.

4. When a man is not attached to either sense objects or actions and expels all selfish purposes, he has crowned the heights of yoga.

For Atman (Self) alone is the friend of self, and Self alone is the enemy of self Bhagavad Gita VI-5

5. For oneself (Self), one should stand up and not let oneself fall; because Atman (Self) alone is the friend of self, and the Self alone is the enemy of the self.

6. Only he who has conquered himself through his Being is a friend of his Being: but for him who has not conquered himself, and is therefore an enemy of himself, even his Being is behaves like an enemy.

7. He who has conquered himself and who rests in perfect calm, the self is completely calm, both in cold and in heat, in pleasure and in pain, in honor and in dishonor.

8. The yogi who is satisfied with the knowledge of the Sastras and experience of the Self, who is immovable, who has conquered the senses, who look with an equal eye on mud, stone and gold, is said to be united or harmonised in yoga

9. He is superior who considers both the bosom friend, the friend, the enemy, the stranger, the mediator, the foreigner and the ally, the same as the saint and the sinner.

10. Alone, stationed in a solitary place, self-controlled, free from desire, and not receiving anything from others, the yogi (Practising Dhyana Yoga) should unite the mind with Atman.

11. Fixed in himself, in a pure place, on a firm seat, neither too high nor too low, covered with kusha grass, on a deerskin and on a cloth.

12. Sitting on that seat, with his mind concentrated, with the functions of thought and senses controlled, he must dedicate himself to the practice of yoga for the sake of self-purification.

13. Remaining firm, holding the trunk, neck and head in a straight line and motionless, fixing his eyes on the tip of his nose and without looking around him.

14. With a calm spirit, free from fear, firm in the vow of Brahmacharya, keeping his mind controlled, the yogi should sit with all his thoughts on Me, absorbed in Me.

15. Thus, by constantly keeping his mind absorbed in Me, the yogi of disciplined mind attains Nirvana and attains supreme peace with Me
