"Self-realization is meant to ensure fulfilment for one’s own self. It is not reaching somewhere or getting at something external, like going to the peak of a mountain. The attainment is in dissolving the mind and intelligence, and getting into the very core of oneself. In other words, it is like multiplying everything with zero."

<< Chapter 2 Verse 11 >>

अशोच्यानन्वशोचस्त्वं प्रज्ञावादांश्च भाषसे ।
गतासूनगतासूंश्च नानुशोचन्ति पण्डिताः ।। २-११ ।।

Śri Bhagavān uvāca ।
aśocyān-anvaśocas-tvaṁ prajñā-vādāṁśca bhāṣase ।
gatāsūn-agatāsūṅsca nānuśocanti paṇditāḥ ।। 2.11 ।।


Krishna said:
You are grieving over those who should not be
grieved for at all. For, the spiritually wise grieve not
either over the living or the dead.

Note: It is significant that Krishna makes Arjuna’s grief
itself the point of introspection. Whenever you grief, do
not fail to introspect over it. That will surely lead you to
higher wisdom and relief.
