THE FUNCTIONS OF THE BODY

GITA WISDOM # 63

Chapter 17 verse 14

देवद्विजगुरुप्राज्ञपूजनं शौचमार्जवम्‌।
ब्रह्मचर्यमहिंसा च शारीरं तप उच्यते॥

A leader attains command over his followers by practising virtues such as worship of the elders, wise men and scholars, personal hygiene, virtuosity, celibacy and nonviolence. These are deemed as spirituality through the physical functions. (17.14)

देवता, ब्राह्मण, गुरु (यहाँ ‘गुरु’ शब्द से माता, पिता, आचार्य और वृद्ध एवं अपने से जो किसी प्रकार भी बड़े हों, उन सबको समझना चाहिए।) और ज्ञानीजनों का पूजन, पवित्रता, सरलता, ब्रह्मचर्य और अहिंसा- यह शरीर- सम्बन्धी तप कहा जाता है ॥14॥

A leader attains command over his followers by practising virtues such as worship of the elders, wise men and scholars, personal hygiene, virtuosity, celibacy and nonviolence. These are deemed as spirituality through the physical functions. (17.14)

Have a nice day!
