Let’s read Chapter 6 together and then we can apply the memory technic to remember the key verses!
KRISHNA DESCRIBES MEDITATION
VERSES 1-4: THE TRUE RENUNCIATE
6.3 For the sage who is still seeking to make progress in yoga, action is said to be the way; when one has become advanced in yoga, renunciation is the way.
VERSES 5-9: THE MIND IS OUR BEST FRIEND OR OUR WORST ENEMY
6.6 The mind is a friend to one who has mastered it. But for one whose mind is uncontrolled, it becomes the worst of enemies.
6.8 The yogī who is fully content with knowledge and Realisation of the Self, who dwells in a transcendent state, whose senses are controlled will see earth, stone and gold the same.
VERSES 10-17: THE PRACTICE OF MEDITATION
VERSES 18-32: THE GOAL OF MEDITATION
6.19 The controlled mind of a yogī who meditates on the Self is compared to a lamp which does not flicker in a windless place.
VERSES 33-36: ARJUNA’S DOUBT
6.34 Arjuna says: The mind is fickle, turbulent, powerful and stubborn. It is more difficult to control than the wind.
VERSES 37-46: THE FATE OF THE FAILED YOGĪ
6.37 Arjuna says: O Kṛṣṇa, what becomes of that person who has conviction, but due to the wanderings of the mind and lack of diligent effort, fails to attain perfection on this path?
6.43 Then, O Arjuna, one regains the same disposition of mind which was acquired in their previous body, and from there one strives again for success in yoga.
VERSE 47: THE HIGHEST OF ALL YOGĪS
6.47 But more than all the yogīs, he who has faith and worships Me, is deemed by Me to be the highest of all.
