The Bhagavad Gita

The Bhagavad Gita (c. 2nd century BCE – 2nd century CE)

“Wisdom is better
than practice,
and focused mind
is better than wisdom.
Letting go of
the fruit of action
is better than focused mind
From letting go, peace soon comes.”

  • This quote is from discourse/chapter 12, verse 12 of the Bhagavad Gita (a Hindu scripture included in book 6 of the epic poem, the Mahabharata). The translation used here is by Laurie L. Patton (Penguin Classic, 2014).
