1. 1

    ईशावास्यमिदं सर्वं यत्किञ्च जगत्यां जगत् । तेन त्यक्तेन भुञ्जीथा मा गृधः कस्य स्विद्धनम् ॥ १ ॥

    In this cosmic movement, in this extremely dynamic macrocosm, whatever is there in this visible, moving, individual world – all of it is for the abode of God. You should enjoy it by renouncing all this; Do not cast a greedy glance at anyone else's wealth.

  2. 2

    कुर्वन्नेवेह कर्माणि जिजीविषेत् शतं समाः। एवं त्वयि नान्यथेतोऽस्ति न कर्म लिप्यते नरे ॥२॥

    A man should aspire to live a hundred years only while doing work in this world. O human! There is only this type of law for you, there is no other type other than this, thus, by desiring to live only while doing work, a person does not get coated with karma.

  3. 3

    असूर्या नाम ते लोका अन्धेन तमसावृताः।तांस्ते प्रेत्याभिगच्छन्ति ये के चात्महनो जनाः ॥३॥

    Those worlds are devoid of sun and covered in thick darkness. Those people who destroy their soul reach those worlds after leaving here.

  4. 4

    अनेजदेकं मनसो जवीयो नैनद्देवा आप्नुवन् पूर्वमर्षत्‌। तद्धावतोऽन्यानत्येति तिष्ठत् तस्मिन्नपो मातरिश्वा दधाति ॥४॥

    That immovable and immovable only Brahma is faster than the mind and is extremely fast. The gods are unable to reach that one, because he always reaches ahead of them. Even while standing still, he runs and overtakes others. In that element, the lord of life force establishes air and water currents.

  5. 5

    तदेजति तन्नैजति तद् दूरे तद्वन्तिके। तदन्तरस्य सर्वस्य तदु सर्वस्यास्य बाह्यतः ॥ ५॥

    That moves and That moves not; That is far and the same is near; That is within all this and That also is outside all this.
