Slow and steady wins the race! Only $12,000 $5,221 more is needed to keep alive and vibrant for the next six months. A big THANK YOU to those who've contributed to our Fall Fundraiser so far. If everyone gave a few dollars (say, between five and fifty) we could get rid of this banner and go back to doing what we love most: helping people all over the Internet discover Krishna. If you give $25 or more, we'll email you a gift of the Bhagavad-gita audio book. How about that? Click here to donate.

BG Chap 15 - The jīva drags the senses with it

Whenever the jīva accepts or leaves a body, he takes the senses with him in the subtle body, just as air takes fragrances from objects and goes elsewhere. Whenever the soul enters another body after giving up the previous one, and whenever he leaves the body he has attained, he takes the senses along with the subtle body. The jīva wanders from body to body, just as the wind, taking fragrance from the flower bud travels elsewhere. Just as the wind itself is free from the odor that it carries, the soul, although trapped in a gross body and subtle mind, remains aloof from all his apparent qualities, whether he exhibits the fragrant mode of goodness or the foul mode of ignorance.
