Srimad Bhagavad Gita

Chapter VIII: The Yoga of the Indestructible Brahman

VIII.11. YADAKSHARAM VEDAVIDO VADANTI 
    VISHANTI YADYATAYO VEETARAAGAAH; 
YADICCHANTO BRAHMACHARYAM CHARANTI 
    TATTE PADAM SAMGRAHENA PRAVAKSHYE. 

(Krishna speaking to Arjuna)
That which is declared imperishable by those who know the Vedas,  that which the self-controlled (ascetics) and passion-free enter, that desiring which celibacy is practised-that goal I will declare to thee in brief. 

VIII.12. SARVADWAARAANI SAMYAMYA MANO HRIDI NIRUDHYA CHA; 
MOORDHNYAADHAAYAATMANAH PRAANAMAASTHITO YOGADHAARANAAM. 
Having closed all the gates, confined the mind in the heart and fixed the life-breath in the head, engaged in the practice of concentration, 

VIII.13. OMITYEKAAKSHARAM BRAHMA VYAAHARAN MAAMANUSMARAN; 
YAH PRAYAATI TYAJAN DEHAM SA YAATI PARAMAAM GATIM. 
Uttering the monosyllable Om-the Brahman-remembering Me always, he who departs thus, leaving the body, attains to the supreme goal.
