Chapter 18: Conclusion — The Perfection of Renunciation

Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Bhagavad-gītā As It Is 18.76

rājan saḿsmṛtya saḿsmṛtya

saḿvādam imam adbhutam

keśavārjunayoḥ puṇyaḿ

hṛṣyāmi ca muhur muhuḥ


rājanO King; saḿsmṛtya — remembering; saḿsmṛtya — remembering; saḿvādam — message; imam — this; adbhutam — wonderful; keśava — of Lord Kṛṣṇa; arjunayoḥ — and Arjuna; puṇyam — pious; hṛṣyāmiI am taking pleasure; ca — also; muhuḥ muhuḥ — repeatedly.


O King, as I repeatedly recall this wondrous and holy dialogue between Kṛṣṇa and Arjuna, I take pleasure, being thrilled at every moment.


The understanding of Bhagavad-gītā is so transcendental that anyone who becomes conversant with the topics of Arjuna and Kṛṣṇa becomes righteous and he cannot forget such talks. This is the transcendental position of spiritual life. In other words, one who hears the Gītā from the right source, directly from Kṛṣṇa, attains full Kṛṣṇa consciousness. The result of Kṛṣṇa consciousness is that one becomes increasingly enlightened, and he enjoys life with a thrill, not only for some time, but at every moment.
