BHAGAVAD GITA: DIVINE WEALTH - DAIVI SAMPAT [BG 16.1-3]

2013-12  Bhagavad Gita: Divine Wealth - Daivi Sampat  [BG16.1-3]






















[Here is a very important lesson I learnt from the Bhagavad Gita [16.1-3] – Divine Wealth. Twenty six [9+11+6 = 26] attributes are listed in the first three slokas of Chapter 16. The more we practice them in our daily lives, the more do we manifest the Divinity within.]

1Fearlessness [ अभयम्  ]
2 Purity of heart [सत्त्व संशुद्धि ]
3 Being established in knowledge and yoga [ज्ञान योग व्यवस्थिति ] 
4 Charity [दानं ]
5 Self Discipline [दम ] 
6 Sacrifice [यज्ञ ] 
7 Study of Scriptures [स्वाध्याय ] 
8 Austerity [तप ] 
9 Straight-forwardness [आर्जवं ]  [16.1]

10 Nonviolence [अहिंसा ] 
11 Truth [सत्यं ] 
12 Absence of Anger [अक्रोधं ]
13 Renunciation [त्याग ] 
14 Peacefulness [शांति ] 
15 Absence of  Ill-feelings about others [अपैशुनं ] 
16 Compassion [दया भूतेष्व ] 
17 Non-covetousness [अलोलुप्त्वं ] 
18 Gentleness [मार्दवं ] 
19 Modesty [ह्री ] 
20 Absence of Fickleness [अचापलं ]  [16.2]

21 Energy [तेजः ] 
22 Forbearance [क्षमा ] 
23 Fortitude [धृति ] 
24 Cleanliness [शौचं ] 
25 Absence of Hatred [अद्रोहो ] 
26 Absence of Pride [नातिमानिता ]  [16.3]

 – these are the wealth of people who belong to the daivi sampat [ दैवी सम्पत् ] category.
