A pandit was visiting Ramana Maharshi and they were discussing the Bhagavad-Gita. A devotee asked if there was one verse that could be remembered always as the essence of the Bhagavad-Gita. Sri Ramana immediately quoted Chapter X, verse 20, "I am the Self, Oh Gudakesa, dwelling in the Heart of every being; I am the beginning and the middle and also the end of all beings."
