Bhagavad Gita Rubaiyat, part XXIII

From these three: anger, lust and greed for gain,
Man in his own self-interest should abstain.
Destroying happiness of soul in all,
These certain paths to hell are paved with pain.

That one who, by desires ego-driven,
Ignores the holy texts to all men given,
Finds neither happiness nor peace of mind,
And from his sacred Goal is fully riven.

So take true scriptures, therefore, as your guide,
And with them keep your consciousness allied.
Intuitively understand their laws,
And find your life with wisdom fortified.
