Bhagavad Gita Chapter XIII: Yoga of the distinction between Field and Knower-of-Field
The Bhagavad Gita ‘Song of the Lord’ is a conversation between Lord Krsna and the warrior prince Arjuna on the battlefield of the Kurukshetra. It provides a practical philosophy which expounds the technique for an active and peaceful life. Above all, it ushers one towards the goal of spiritual Enlightenment.
A clear distinction is made between Spirit and matter. Using different philosophical terms, Lord Krsna explains how the Spirit combines with matter to create a living being.
Human pursuits must culminate in realising the supreme Spirit, Brahman. The chapter enumerates twenty qualities that constitute an Enlightened person. A seeker practising and perfecting these qualities gains the knowledge of the Self. With this knowledge he recognises the one Self in the manifold beings. And attains Self-realisation.
