Thread: Text for the kalava bracelet

    Post Text for the kalava bracelet

    Hello Hindu dharma forums,
    I am conducting an investigation into the kalava/kautuku bracelet, and was wondering if anyone here was willing to answer questions I had towards it. When I asked a member of a Hindu temple about the kautuku bracelet, they informed me that Sri Krishna said in the Bhagavad Gita, that without any ritual you can still connect with god with good action and thought. Does anyone know where I can find that specific text? This would help me alot.

    BG chapters 2 - 5 explain SAnkhya (spirit and matter) and karma yog - you have the right to action, but not the results, and what should be the mindset towards one's duties and calling.

    Karma Yoga results in balance and peace of mind due to expectation-less behavior. This equanimous state is by itself a connection to God.

    More direct - is BG chapter 12 - all shlokas. Then, chapter 9.22, 9.26,27, 18 - BG 18.65, 18.66 and the verses BG13.8 to 13.12

    12.1-8 - how, 12.12+ - what. ,,,such a devotee is very dear to Me

    BG 18.65 manmanA bhava mad bhakto madyaji mAm namaskuru |
    mAm evaisyasi satyam te pratijAne priyo 'si me ||

    Always think of Me, be My devotee, worship Me, pay respects and bow to Me
    This way you will come to Me. I promise you this as true, because you are dear to Me.

    BG 9.22
    ananyas chintayanto mAm
    ye janah paryupAsate
    teshAm nityAbhiyuktAnAm
    yoga-kshemam vahAmy aham

    Those who worship Me with devotion, meditating on Me -to them I carry what they lack and preserve what they have.

    patram pushpam phalam toyamyo me bhaktya prayacchati
    tad aham bhakty-upahrtam
    asnAmi prayatAtmanah

    If one offers Me with love and devotion a leaf, a flower, fruit a water, I will accept it.

    yat karosi yad asnAsi
    yaj juhosi dadasi yat
    yat tapasyasi kaunteya
    tat kurushva mad-arpaNam

    O son of Kunti, all that you do, all that you eat, all that you offer and give away, as well as all austerities that you may perform, should be done as an offering unto Me.

    sarva-dharman parityajyamAm ekam sharaNam vraja
    aham tvAm sarva-pApebhyo
    mokshayishyAmi mA suchah

    Abandon all varieties of dharma and just surrender unto Me. I shall deliver you from all sinful reaction. Do not fear.

    BG10.9 mac-chitta mad-gata-prANa
    bodhayantah parasparam
    kathayantas cha mAm nityam
    tushyanti cha ramanti cha

    The thoughts of My devotees dwell in Me, their lives are surrendered to Me, and they derive great satisfaction and bliss enlightening one another and conversing about Me.

    teshAm satata-yuktAnAm
    bhajatAm priti-purvakam
    dadAmi buddhi-yogam tam
    yena mAm upayAnti te

    To those who are constantly devoted and worship Me with love, I give the understanding by which they can come to Me.
