Bhagavad Gita Rubaiyat, Part XXIX

From the Divine seek all that you desire,
And offer up your energy entire
Into that Source from which all power comes,
To find there all your heart will e’er require.

All creatures live by food, by rain, by sun,
And so since the Beginning they have done.
Trace back this power of Life within yourself!
Complete the ring that makes Creation one!

Arjuna asked: What is that fearsome power
That plagues mankind from birth to final hour,
Impels us to do wrong against our will,
And all our good intentions does devour?

Desire it is, the Lord Krishna replied,
And anger at desire unsatisfied—
Desire and anger, those twin enemies,
Keep mankind’s will unto delusion tied.
