Book Name: Gitar Gan
abhaya sattva samsiddhi jnane avasthan
dan dam yajna ar svadhyay tapan
saralata satya ar ahimsa akrodh
tyag santi daya ar paraninda rodh
alolupata mrduta tej acapal
ksama, dhrti, souca, va hri adroha sakal
abhiman sunyata se chavvisa ye gun
sampad se hay tar yar daivite janam
dambha, darpa, abhiman, krodh, nisthurata
sampada asuri hay yatha ajnanata
daivi sampada ye tar muktira karan
asuri sampada hay samsara vandhan
tomara cintara katha nahi he pandava
daivi sampade tomar hayechhe janam
he bharat, e jagate dui bhut srsti
ek daivi dvitiya se asuri va drsti
daivi yara tar katha anek hayeche
suna ebe katha yara asura janmeche
pravrtti nivrtti yaha asura na jane
soucacar satya mithya nahi
asura ye lok
jagater vidhata yini asvikara tar
srstira karan sei anisvaravadi
jada karya-karana se kamuka vivadi
ei ksudra drsti laye asurera gan
atma-tattva-jnanahin alpa-buddhi han
ugra-karme utsaha tar jagata ahita
mohagrasta asadagraha asuci-vrata
apareya cinta tar yatadina bnace
kama-matra upabhog hrdayete ache
sata sata asa-pas sudhu kam krodha
kama-bhoga lagi artha anya se virodha
anyaya se kare nitya sancayete
citta tar nitya viddha asata karyete
adya ei artha-labh mano-ratha siddhi
punarbar bhavisyate habe artha vrddhi
se satru marila anya niscaya mariba
ami se isvara dhani se karya sadhiva
ami bhogi siddha ar balabana sukhi
mama sama keha nahe ar saba duhkhi
ami abhijanavan ami dhana-adhya
amara samana habe kar kiva sadhya
ami se kariba yajna ami dan diba
stri-sanga kariya ami ananda paiba
ajnana mohita haye kata katha bale
mohajala samavrta kalera kavale
asalete kamasakta narakera yatri
asuci narake bas naraka vidhatr
atma sambhavita man dhanete anamra
madanvita asura se sarvada vinamra
nama-matra yajna kare sastre vidhi nai
dambha-matra ache sar kevala badai
ahamkar, vala, darpa, kam, krodhasray
amara samparke dehe dves se karay
asuyar vase cinta svapara apare
sadhura gunete dos kimba ninda kare
sei se vidvesi krur naradhama gane
nitya se ksepana kari samsara gahane
asura yonite hay janama maran
ajasra asubha tar jivana yapan
asurera ghare mudha janame janame
amake bhuliya duhkhi marame marame
krame krame paya sei adhama ye gati
aksama amake pete yehetu kumati
tyaja taha nay tin sadhu vyavahar
ei tine mukta yara suna he kaunteya
tamogunera dvar sei atisay heya
tabe se acari dharma nija sreyaskar
paragata labh kare mama bhakti par
sastra vidhi parityage
siddhiprapti nahe tahe sukha gatipar
ataeva sastra-vidhi karyera praman
jani sastra-vidhi kara karya samadhana
bhaktivedanta kahe sri-gitara gan
sune yadi suddha bhakta krsnagata-pran
1-3) The Blessed Lord said: Fearlessness, purification of one's existence, cultivation of spiritual knowledge, charity, self-control, performance of sacrifice, study of the Vedas, austerity and simplicity; nonviolence, truthfulness, freedom from anger; renunciation, tranquility, aversion to faultfinding, compassion and freedom from covetousness; gentleness, modesty and steady determination; vigor, forgiveness, fortitude, cleanliness, freedom from envy and the passion for honor--these transcendental qualities, O son of Bharata, belong to godly men endowed with divine nature.
4) Arrogance, pride, anger, conceit, harshness and ignorance--these qualities belong to those of demoniac nature, O son of Prtha.
5) The transcendental qualities are conducive to liberation, whereas the demoniac qualities make for bondage. Do not worry, O son of Pandu, for you are born with the divine qualities.
6) O son of Prtha, in this world there are two kinds of created beings. One is called the divine and the other demoniac. I have already explained to you at length the divine qualities. Now hear from Me of the demoniac.
7) Those who are demoniac do not know what is to be done and what is not to be done. Neither cleanliness nor proper behavior nor truth is found in them.
8) They say that this world is unreal, that there is no foundation and that there is no God in control. It is produced of sex desire, and has no cause other than lust.
9) Following such conclusions, the demoniac, who are lost to themselves and who have no intelligence, engage in unbeneficial, horrible works meant to destroy the world.
10) The demoniac, taking shelter of insatiable lust, pride and false prestige, and being thus illusioned, are always sworn to unclean work, attracted by the impermanent.
11-12) They believe that to gratify the senses unto the end of life is the prime necessity of human civilization. Thus there is no end to their anxiety. Being bound by hundreds and thousands of desires, by lust and anger, they secure money by illegal means for sense gratification.
13-15) The demoniac person thinks: "So much wealth do I have today, and I will gain more according to my schemes. So much is mine now, and it will increase in the future, more and more. He is my enemy, and I have killed him; and my other enemy will also be killed. I am the lord of everything. I am the enjoyer. I am perfect, powerful and happy. I am the richest man, surrounded by aristocratic relatives. There is none so powerful and happy as I am. I shall perform sacrifices, I shall give some charity, and thus I shall rejoice." In this way, such persons are deluded by ignorance.
16) Thus perplexed by various anxieties and bound by a network of illusions, one becomes too strongly attached to sense enjoyment and falls down into hell.
17) Self-complacent and always impudent, deluded by wealth and false prestige, they sometimes perform sacrifices in name only without following any rules or regulations.
18) Bewildered by false ego, strength, pride, lust and anger, the demon becomes envious of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is situated in his own body and in the bodies of others, and blasphemes against the real religion.
19) Those who are envious and mischievous, who are the lowest among men, are cast by Me into the ocean of material existence, into various demoniac species of life.
20) Attaining repeated birth amongst the species of demoniac life, such persons can never approach Me. Gradually they sink down to the most abominable type of existence.
21) There are three gates leading to this hell--lust, anger and greed. Every sane man should give these up, for they lead to the degradation of the soul.
22) The man who has escaped these three gates of hell, O son of Kunti, performs acts conducive to self-realization and thus gradually attains the supreme destination.
23) But he who discards scriptural injunctions and acts according to his own whims attains neither perfection, nor happiness, nor the supreme destination.
24) One should understand what is duty and what is not duty by the regulations of the scriptures. Knowing such rules and regulations, one should act so that he may gradually be elevated.
25) Thus Bhaktivedanta sings the song of Sri Gita, with the hope that hearing this, Krsna conscious pure devotees will be pleased.
This is the Bengali translation of Bhagavad-Gita Chapter 16 “Abhayam Sattva Samsuddhir.”
