Bhagavad Gita Chapter 18 Verse 58

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 18 श्लोक 58

मच्चित्तः सर्वदुर्गाणि मत्प्रसादात्तरिष्यसि।
अथ चेत्त्वमहङ्कारान्न श्रोष्यसि विनङ्क्ष्यसि।।18.58।।

English Translation - Swami Sivananda

18.58 Fixing thy mind on Me, thou shalt by My grace overcome all obstacles; but if from egoism thou wilt not hear Me, thou shalt perish.

English Translation of Sanskrit Commentary By Sri Shankaracharya's

18.58 Maccittah, having your mind fixed on Me; tarisyasi, you will cross over; sarva-durgani, alldifficulties, all cuases of transmigration which are difficult to overcome; mat-prasadat, through My grace. Atha cet, if, on the other hand; tvam, you; na srosyasi, will not listen to, will not accept, My words; ahankarat, out of egotism, thinking I am learned; then vinanksyasi, you will get destroyed, will court ruin. And this should not be thought of by you-I am independent. Why should I follow anothers bidding?

Transliteration Bhagavad Gita 18.58
