I am death, the mighty destroyer of the world, out to destroy.
Arguna Of those steadfast devotees who love you and those who seek you as the eternal formless Reality, who are the more established in yoga Krishna Those who set their hearts on me and worship me with unfailing devotion and faith are more established in yoga. As for those who seek the transcendental Reality, without name, without form, contemplating the Unmanifested, beyond the reach of thought and of feeling, with their senses subdued and mind serene and striving for the good of all beings, they too will verily come unto me. Yet hazardous and slow is the path to the Unrevealed, difficult for physical man to tread. But they for whom I am the supreme goal, who do all work renouncing self for me and meditate on me with single-hearted devotion, these I will swiftly rescue from the fragment's cycle of birth and death, for their consciousness has entered into me.
I am the all-devouring death, and also the origin of future beings.

There has never been a time when you and I have not existed, nor will there be a time when we will cease to exist. As the same person inhabits the body through childhood, youth, and old age, so too at the time of death he attains another body. The wise are not deluded by these changes.
One's inferior natural work is better than superior unnatural work. Death in carrying out one's natural work is useful. Unnatural work produces too much stress.
Death is as sure for that which is born, As birth is for that which is dead. Therefore grieve not for what is inevitable.
Death in carrying out one's natural work is useful.
For that which is born death is certain, and for the dead birth is certain. Therefore grieve not over that which is unavoidable.
