| "The Bhagavad-gītā says at the ultimate end, sarva-dharmān parityajya mām ekaṁ śaraṇaṁ vraja (BG 18.66) 'My dear Arjuna...' He is teaching to Arjuna—not only Arjuna, but all human society—that 'you give up your all manufactured occupational duties. You simply agree to My proposal, and I shall give you all protection'. It does not mean that we lose our individuality. Just like Kṛṣṇa says to Arjuna, 'You do it', but He does not force him, 'You do it'. 'If you like, you do it'. Kṛṣṇa does not touch your independence. He simply requests you, 'You do it'. So we can become happy and peaceful by keeping our individuality if we dovetail our consciousness with the Supreme Consciousness."
