Maṅgalācaraṇam from Bhāgavatam

The first three verses of Bhāgavatam serve as a prayer, invoking the grace of the Lord, the source of all, and of Sage Vyāsa.  They are also a profound, concise revelation of Vedānta. The opening words are the Brahma-sūtra (1.2.1) of Vyāsa which defines Brahman—janmādyasya yataḥ, the one from whom is the birth, etc., of this world. In the unfolding of the meaning of these verses lies the complete non-dual vision that releases a person from the struggle for fulfillment.

Bhagavad Gita Ch.3 Sloka 3
लोकेऽस्मिन्द्विविधा निष्ठा पुरा प्रोक्ता मयानघ |
ज्ञानयोगेन साङ्ख्यानां कर्मयोगेन योगिनाम् || 3||

śhrī bhagavān uvācha
loke ’smin dvi-vidhā niṣhṭhā purā proktā mayānagha
jñāna-yogena sāṅkhyānāṁ karma-yogena yoginām

The heart-knot of ignorance is torn asunder, all doubts are destroyed, and all the karmas are exhausted for the jīva who sees the effect as non-separate from the cause, who sees him or herself as Īśvara (2.2.9). In this retreat, we will be studying this important mantra, which sums up the vision of the Upaniṣad by expounding the results of gaining self-knowledge in one’s life.
