The mind is a friend

and the mind is a foe.

It is the cause of bondage

and can also take us to liberation.

-   Param Pujya Ma

11 Shlokas 52, 53

श्री भगवानुवाच

सुदुर्दर्शमिदं रूपं दृष्टवानसि यन्मम।

देवा अप्यस्य रूपस्य नित्यं दर्शनकाङ्क्षिणः।।५२।।

नाहं वेदैर्न तपसा न दानेन न चेज्यया।

शक्य एवंविधो द्रष्टुं दृष्टवानसि मां यथा।।५३।।

The Lord says to Arjuna:

It is exceedingly difficult to gain sight of this form of Mine, which you have seen. Even the Gods are ever desirous of witnessing this form. For neither through Vedic studies, nor severe austerities, nor acts of charity, nor through sacrificial deeds can I be perceived in the form in which you have witnessed Me.
