Following are some of the questions and answers from the book.
1. What kind of goal should one have in life?
One must have the Supreme goal and seek to attain that Supreme state (Higher Self) where one does not return. (G.15.04)
2. Why should one control the mind and the senses?
The mind, when controlled by the wandering senses, steals away the intellect and discrimination of a man just as the wind takes away a ship on the sea from its destination. Therefore, O Arjuna, one who completely controls one’s senses from sense objects becomes steady in Self-Knowledge. (G.2.67, 68)
3. What is the easiest and quickest way to attain the Nirvana?
O Arjuna, true renunciation is difficult to achieve without first engaging in selfless action (Karma Yoga). A sage, whose mind is always focused on God while doing selfless service with devotion (Karma Yoga), easily and quickly attains Nirvana. (G.5.06)
4. How does one stabilize the mind and attain Equanimity?
When one can fully withdraw the senses from objects, like a tortoise that withdraws its limbs into the shell for protection, then one’s intellect becomes steady (Equanimity). If one abstains from sense enjoyment, then one’s desire for sensual pleasures fades away, but the craving for them still remains in a very subtle form. This craving in a subtle form also disappears from a person of steadfast mind who has realized the Supreme Being. (G.2.58, 59)
