A tattoo is literally skin-deep commitment that stays for our entire life. If you are a tattoo aficionado, then you must know the happiness of something really deep or important to be made as a tattoo on your skin. When life gets worse or you need a motivation, then a tattoo can work as a powerful motivation to steer you towards the right direction. Keeping this in mind, we have curated a list of some deep and meaningful tattoo ideas straight from the sacred Bhagavad Gita. Take a look and get inspired as well –
- “For death is but a passing phase of Life; A change of dress, a disrobing; A birth into the unborn again; A commencing where we ended; A starting where we stopped to rest; A crossroad of Eternity; A giving up of something, to possess all things.”pinterest.com
- “There is no beginning and no end.” This line can be depicted by a simple circle or a symbol of infinity or Ouroborus symbol.
- “The concept of Karma says that all the actions we do have a way of coming back to us. So the art lies in focusing on your work without anticipating the results.”smalltattoos.com
- “Be open to everything and attached to nothing. Change is the only constant. So don’t be attached to your work and keep evolving.”
- The tattoo can be made out of entire shloka or can be represented by the Greek alphabet delta which is in the form of ‘triangle’ and signifies change.
- This is the literal translation of the Sanskrit shakola :
“divi suuryasahasrasya bhavedyugapadutthitaa | yadi bhaah sadrishii saa syaad hbhaasastasya mahaatmanah ||”It can be represented by a ‘sun’ as a reminder or can be tattooed as it is.
- “When there is a decay of dharma (righteousness) and the rise of adharma (unrighteousness), then I (the Lord) am born in this world.”
- “Treating alike pain & pleasure, gain & loss, victory & defeat, engage yourself in battle. Thus you will incur no sin.”
- “Know that to be imperishable & indestructible, by which all this is pervaded; for none can bring about the destruction of this indestructible substance, the imperishable soul.”
- “Whatever action is performed by a great man common men follow in his footsteps. And whatever standards he sets by exemplary acts, all the world pursues.”myspace.com
- “dehino ‘smin yatha dehe kaumaram yauvanam jara tatha dehantara-praptir dhiras tatra na muhyati”
This translates to “As the embodied soul continually passes, in this body, from boyhood to youth to old age, the soul similarly passes into another body at death. The self-realized soul is not bewildered by such a change.”
It can be beautifully described by the work “Moksha” meaning salvation of the soul.imgrum.net
