Quotes from the Bhagwada Gita,
One is dearest to God who has no enemies among the living beings, who is nonviolent to all creatures. I look upon all creatures equally; none are less dear to me and none more dear. But those who worship me with love live in me, and I come to life in them.
He alone who truly sees the Lord the same in every creature… seeing the same Lord everywhere, he does not harm himself or others.
Be fearless and pure; never waver in your determination or your dedication to the spiritual life. Give freely. Be self-controlled, sincere, truthful, loving and full of desire to serve… Learn to be detached and to take joy in renunciation. Do not get angry or harm any living creature, but be compassionate and gentle; show good will to all. Cultivate vigour, patience, will, purity; avoid malice and pride. Then you will achieve your destiny.
Atmabhava means the divinity that is within me is the one that I see in others.
Therefore, you do not only think of only what is yours, but address the same love and compassion for others. This is converted into selflessness and love of Mother Earth (Prithvi).
Development of atmabhava starts with detachment from one’s thoughts and their influence over one. One looks at the world with affection and serves the divinity in humanity. This then means that one applies this sentiment and emotion to service and co-existence of humans and nature.
