Gita Shloka of the Month yad yad vibhootimat sattvam
shrimad oorjitam eva vaa
tat tad evaavagaccha tvam
mama tejo-‘msha-sambhavam || 10.41 ||
Whatever there is endowed with extraordinary glory, attractiveness and vigour, know all that to be born of a fragment of My power.
Vivekachudamani Shloka of the Month shavaakaaram yaavadbhajati manujastaavadashucih
parebhyah syaatklesho jananamaranavyaadhinilayah|
yadaatmaanam shuddham kalayati shivaakaaramachalam
tadaa tebhyo mukto bhavati hi tadaaha shrutirapi || 396 ||
So long as man has any regard for this corpse-like body, he is impure, and suffers from his enemies as also from birth, death and disease; but when he thinks of himself as pure, as the essence of good and immovable, he assuredly becomes free from them; the Shrutis also say this.
