CHAPTER III. ARJUNA: Thou whom all mortals praise, Janardana! If meditation be a nobler thing Than action, wherefore, then, great Keiava! Dost thou impel me to this dreadful fight ? Now am I by thy doubtful speech disturbed! Tell me one thing, and tell me certainly ; By what road shall I find the better end ? KRISHNA: I told thee, blameless Lord! there be two paths Shown to this world; two schools of wisdom. First The Sankhya's, which doth save in way of works Prescribed by reason; next, the Y6g, which bids 1 I feel convinced sdnkhydndn and yogindn must be transposed here in sense. Attain by meditation, spiritually: Yet these are one! No man shall 'scape from act By shunning action; nay, and none shall come By mere renouncements unto perfectness. Nay, and no jot of time, at any time, Eests any actionless; his nature's law Compels him, even unwilling, into act; [For thought is act in fancy]. He who sits Suppressing all the instruments of flesh, Yet in his idle heart thinking on them, Plays the inept and guilty hypocrite : But he who, with strong body serving mind, Gives up his mortal powers to worthy work, Not seeking gain, Arjuna! such an one Is honourable. Do thine allotted task! Work is more excellent than idleness; i j The body's life proceeds not, lacking work. There is a task of holiness to do, Unlike world-binding toil, which bindeth not The faithful soul; such earthly duty do Free from desire, and thou shalt well perform Thy heavenly purpose.

    Finite ~ Emris

    Why do we take this pain? <br>
    An ache that has been thrust into our hearts for no reason <br>
    Other than to burn away our humanity. <br>
    Injuries like fire in your eyes. <br>
    I see a reflection of my own. <br>
    A moment of common ground. <br>
    Will we ever see a change? <p>

    Look up! <br>
    Dancing flames in the sky. <br>
    The air heavy with heat. <br>
    Yet our hearts feel so cold. <br>
    Fire and ice in one entity is what we are. <br>
    Darkness and pain fill us to the brim. <br>
    Black and white? <br>
    Why can nothing every be so anymore? <br>
    Why are we all just so <br>
    Finite? <p>

    Thank you for reading! Remember, the search is 'celestial song'. Just scroll down reses one by one, I'm working to put a poem in each!
