Bhagavad Gita Rubaiyat, part II

Sensations that the mind takes by default
as absolute decrees it must exalt—
the heat or cold, the pleasure, pain—are but
suggestions. Take them with a grain of salt.

This overcoat of clay that you must don,
to clothe the spirit while from heav’n you’re gone,
must one day be hung back upon its hook,
but though you change attire, You still live on.

The soul in water is unsinkable,
by earthly chains it is unlinkable,
unburnable by fire, immune from harm,
and even, to the mind, unthinkable.
