Sri Ganeshaaya Namah! Gopaalakrishnaaya Namah!
Bhagavan parameshaana bhaktiravyabhichaarinee;
Praarabdham bhujyamaanasya katham bhavati he prabho.
The Earth said
1. O Bhagavan, the Supreme Lord! How can unflinching devotion arise in him who is
immersed in his Prarabdha Karmas (worldly life), O Lord?
Praarabdham bhujyamaano hi geetaabhyaasaratah sadaa;
Sa muktah sa sukhee loke karmanaa nopalipyate.
Lord Vishnu said
2. Though engaged in the performance of worldly duties, one who is regular in the study of
the Gita becomes free. He is the happy man in this world. He is not bound by Karma.
Mahaapaapaadipaapaani geetaadhyaanam karoti chet;
Kwachit sparsham na kurvanti nalineedalam ambuvat.
3. Just as the water stains not the lotus leaf, even so sins do not taint him who is regular in the
recitation of the Gita.
