                                     Saptha Sloki Gita

                        (Taken from Stotraratnavali of Gita Press , Gorakhpur)

                                                    Translated by



(These seven slokas in this order from Bhagawad Gita  has been published by Gita press, Gorakpur, in their collection of stotras called  Stotraratnavali. It is supposed to represent in a nutshell , the teachings contained in the 700 slokas of  Bhagawad Gita.I understand that this Saptha Sloki Gita is being recited as a daily prayer by the Kashmiri Pundits for hundrerds of years)



Bhagawan Uvacha:-


Om ithyaksharam Brahma,

Vyaharan maam anusmaran,

Ya prayathi  thyajan deham,

Sa Yathi Pramamam gathim.                                  1(8-13)


The God said:-


He who , meditates on  me,

As “Om”, which in Brahman,

While leaving this ephemeral body,

Will surely attain the most supreme state.


Arjuna Uvacha:-


Sthane Hrisikesa, Thava prakeerthya,

Jagath prahrushthya  anurajyathe cha,

Rakshamsi bheethani  diso dravanthi,

Sarve namasyanthi cha sidha sangha.                      2(11-36)


Arjuna said:-


In this state, Oh Lord, Singing about you.

The world is happy and is rejoicing,

To see the evil ones flying away with fear,

And all those devoted ones saluting you.


(This is told after seeing the Viswa Roopa  of the Lord)


Bhagawan Uvacha:-


Sarvatha pani padam thath,

Sarvatho akshi siro mukham,

Sarvatha sruthimalloke,

Sarvamavithya thishtahi.                                             3(13-14)


The God said:-


It has hands and legs everywhere,

It has eyes head and mouth everywhere,

It has ears everywhere in this world,

And it exists  as every thing in this world.


Kavim purana anusasithara-,

Manoramaneeyaam  samanusmaredhya,

Sarvasya  dhataram  machinthya roopa-

Madithya varnam  thamasa parasthath.                          4(8-9)


Think of Him , as ancient, spread everywhere,

 Ruler of all,  much subtler  part of an atom,

Protector of all with his form which is beyond thought,

With the colour of Sun and transcendental beyond dark thoughts.


Oordhwamoolamadha sakham,

Aswatham  prahooravyayam,

Chandamsi  yasya parnani,

Yastham  Veda sa Vedavith.                                                   5(15-1)


With roots above and branches Growing down,

This Banyan tree  with Vedas as its leaves,

Is everlasting and immortal,

And whosoever knows it, really  knows  the Vedas.


Sarvasya chaham, hrudhi sannivishto,

Matha  smrithir  jnana mapohanam cha,

Vedaischa  sarvaii , rahameva Vedhyo,

Vedanthakruth veda vidheva  chaham.                                     6(15-15)


I live in everybody’s heart,

And from me one gets,

Memory , wisdom and forgetfulness,

And for all the Vedas , I am the one that is to be known,

For I created them and I am the one who knows them.


Manmana  bhava Mad bhaktho,

Madhyajee maam Namakuru,

Mamevaishyasi sathyam they,

Prathijane priyo asi may.                                                           7(18-65)


Concentrate your mind on me,

Always show devotion to me,

Sacrifice for me, salute me,

And I swear to you because you are dear to me,

That  definitely  you will reach me.
