Bhagavad Gita (Chapter 8; slokas 14-21).


Jai Maa Kali

I am easily attained by the person who always remembers me and is attached to nothing else. Such a person is a true yogi, Arjuna.

Great souls make their lives perfect and discover me; they are freed from mortality and the suffering of this (illusion of) separate existence.

Every creature in the universe is subject to rebirth, Arjuna, except the one who is united with me.

Those who understand the cosmic laws know that the Day of Brahma (process of Creation) ends after a thousand yugas and the Night of Brahma ends after a thousand yugas.

When the day of Brahma dawns, forms are brought forth from the Unmanifest; when the night of Brahma comes, these forms merge in the Formless again.

This multitude of beings is created and destroyed again and again in the succeeding days and nights of Brahma.

But beyond this formless state there is another, unmanifested reality, which is eternal and is not dissolved when the cosmos is destroyed.

Those who realize life’s supreme goal know that I am unmanifested and unchanging. Having come home to me, they never return to (the illusion of) separate existence.
