You see many stars in the sky at night, but not when the sun rises. Can you therefore say that there are no stars in the heavens during the day? O man, because you cannot find God in the days of your ignorance, say not that there is no God. The digit 1 may be raised to a figure of any value by adding zeros after it; but if that 1 is omitted, zeros by themselves have no value. Similarly so long as the Jiva individual soul does not cling to God, who is the One, he has no value, for all things here get their value from their connection with God. So long as the Jiva clings to God, who is the value-giving figure behind the world, and does all his work for Him, he gains more and more thereby; on the contrary, if he overlooks God and adds to his work many grand achievements, all done for his own glorification, he will gain nothing therefrom. God is to man what a magnet is to iron.
The Bhagavad Gita, also referred to as Gita, is a —verse Dharmic scripture that is part of the ancient Sanskrit epic Mahabharata.
This scripture contains a conversation between Pandava prince Arjuna and his guide Krishna on a variety of philosophical issues. Faced with a fratricidal war, a despondent Arjuna turns to his charioteer Krishna for counsel on the battlefield.
Krishna, through the course of the Bhagavad Gita, imparts to Arjuna wisdom, the path to devotion, and the doctrine of selfless action. The Bhagavad Gita upholds the essence and the philosophical tradition of the Upanishads. However, unlike the rigorous monism of the Upanishads, the Bhagavad Gita also integrates dualism and theism. Numerous commentaries have been written on the Bhagavad Gita with widely differing views on the essentials, beginning with Adi Sankara's commentary on the Bhagavad Gita in the eighth century CE.
Commentators see the setting of the Bhagavad Gita in a battlefield as an allegory for the ethical and moral struggles of the human life. The Bhagavad Gita's call for selfless action inspired many leaders of the Indian independence movement including Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, who referred to the Bhagavad Gita as his "spiritual dictionary".

The soul enchained is man, but when free from the chain Maya , it is the Lord. What is the relation between the Jivatman and the Paramatman? As a current of water seems to be divided into two when a plank of wood is placed against it edgewise, so the Indivisible appears divided into two, the Jivatman and the Paramatrnan, due to the limitation of Maya.
Water and a bubble on it are one and the same. The bubble has its birth in the water, floats on it, and is ultimately resolved into it.
So also the Jivatman and the Paramatman are one and the same, the difference between them being only one of degree. For, one is finite and limited while the other is infinite; one is dependent while the other is independent. The idea of an individual ego is just like enclosing a portion of the water of the Ganges and calling the enclosed portion one's own Ganges.
As a piece of lead thrown into a basin of mercury soon becomes an amalgam with it, so an individual soul loses its limited existence when it falls into the ocean of Brahman.
God is the infinite Being, while Jiva is only a finite being.
Nothing is more superior than this supreme soul. Shri Krishna says, " Those who are not foolish reach the supreme state.
The sun cannot brighten the self-illumined form of the supreme state, neither can the moon or the fire illuminate this supreme state. Reaching this supreme state a person does not come back to the never ending cycle of birth and death. This state is the supreme place where I'm prevalent. The divine traits lead to freedom, but the demonic lead to bondage.
One must accept the norms of tradition in judging what to do or avoid and not just fulfill one's own desires. Such persons acquire some super-human powers and misuse that power for very unrighteous causes. The persons with passionate faith pray to the angels for going to heaven after death.
But the soul is the angel of angels and supreme in nature. All those who desire and act to realize this supreme soul, who do not care about the pleasures of earth or heaven, who believe that their soul is the blissful form and they they themselves are the soul and the not body, who desire to realize the "I AM THAT" So-hum state, they are the ones who have lucid faith.
Such persons are able to go beyond the cycle of life and death. The person with lucid faith never complains and the person with darkly inert faith becomes an extremist and atheist. The greatness of the devotee and the God is undescribeable.
