The Glories of the Gita
gita-sastram idam punyam, yah pathet prayatah puman
1 This Bhagavad-gita scripture is the bestower of all good. One who regularly studies it with devotion will attain to the holy abode of Lord Visnu, the plane of freedom from all distress, fear and sorrow.
gitadhyayana-silasya, pranayama-parasya cha
2 For a self-controlled person who seriously studies this Bhagavad-gita scripture, not a trace of sin from this life or even from the previous life remains, as all the sins of such a person are burnt to ashes.
malanir mochanam pumsam, jala-snanam dine dine
3 As a person bathes every day to cleanse the body, similarly, by bathing only once in the waters of the Bhagavad-gita (reading the Gita once with devotion) all the dirt of painful material existence is washed away.

4 The Gita should always be sung with devotion. This divine song emanated from the holy lotus mouth of the Supreme Lord Himself, Lord Sri Krishna. What more can any other scriptures give?
bharatamrta-sarvasvam, visnor vaktrad vinihsrtam
5 By drinking the Ganges waters of the Gita (by singing the Gita with devotion), the nectar of the Mahabharata emanating from the lotus mouth of Lord Visnu, one will never take birth in the material world again.

6 All the Upanisads are as the cow, and the milker of the cow is Sri Krishna, the son of Nanda. Arjuna is the calf, the nectar of the Gita is the milk, and the fortunate devotees are the enjoyers of the milk.
ekam sastram devaki-putra-gitam
7 There need be only one scripture—the holy Gita sung by Sri Krishna; only one worshippable Lord—Sri Krishna; only one mantra—His holy names; and only one work—devotional service to the Supreme Lord, Sri Krishna.
