The Bhagavad Gita

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

“When a person renounces
all the desires
in the mind,
that one is said
to be content
in the self, by the self,
and firm in wisdom.”

  • This quote is from discourse/chapter 2, verse 55 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).
