In the final chapters of the Gita Krishna explores a variety of topics. He explains Sankya: understanding the difference between what is material and what is spiritual, and how our soul becomes entangled in matter. Next there is the gunas: Satva, Rajas, Tamas and how the balance between them dictates our experience. Krishna also outlines the different qualities which influence whether we follow the way of the gods or the demons. In chapter 17 the Gita describes how ritual, austerity and charity can be done in different ways depending on the gunas. The final chapter develops these ideas further before summarizing the whole Gita discourse. This climaxes in Krishna emphatically calling upon Arjuna to abandon everything and surrender to Him. Thus ends the timeless wisdom of the Bhagavad Gita.
