My interpretation of time. In the series, I have tried to chase time and understand what actually it is.
बुद्धियोग युक्त मनीषी लोग कर्मजन्य फलों को त्यागकर जन्मरूप बन्धन से मुक्त हुये अनामय
The wise, possessed of knowledge, having abandoned the fruits of their actions,
and being freed from the fetters of birth, go to the place which is beyond all evil.
देहिनोऽस्मिन्यथा देहे कौमारं यौवनं जरा।
तथा देहान्तरप्राप्तिर्धीरस्तत्र न मुह्यति॥
Just as the boyhood, youth and old age come to the embodied Soul in this body, in the same manner, is the attaining of another body; the wise man is not deluded at that.
क्रोधाद्भवति सम्मोहः सम्मोहात्स्मृतिविभ्रमः।
स्मृतिभ्रंशाद् बुद्धिनाशो बुद्धिनाशात्प्रणश्यति॥
From anger there comes delusion; from delusion, the loss of memory; from the loss of memory,
the destruction of discrimination; and with the destruction of discrimination, he is lost.
नास्ति बुद्धिरयुक्तस्य न चायुक्तस्य भावना।
न चाभावयतः शान्तिरशान्तस्य कुतः सुखम्॥
For the unsteady, there is no wisdom, and there is no meditation for the unsteady man.
And for an un-meditated man, there is no peace. How can there be happiness for one without peace?
न कर्मणामनारम्भान्नैष्कर्म्यं पुरुषोऽश्नुते।
न च संन्यसनादेव सिद्धिं समधिगच्छति॥
No man can attain freedom from activity by refraining from action; nor can he reach perfection by merely refusing to act.
