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 18 - Determination in the mode of goodness

Determination which is unbreakable, which is sustained with steadfastness by yoga practice, and which thus controls and engages the activities of the mind, life airs and senses in unswerving concentration on the Lord is in the mode of goodness. In this type of yoga, there is only contemplation of the Supreme Lord, without accepting any other object. Intelligence is in the mode of goodness when it recognizes and engages in a religious act. Determination is that which makes the intelligence firm in its decisions. Determination that prevents us from performing degrading actions is also in the mode of goodness.
