The tenth chapter of Gita is like a ladder that takes you directly to Parmatma.

In Kashipuri there lived a devout and saintly Brahmin named Dheerbudhi who was revered for his Knowledge on Vedas and other Shastras.
His mind was focused only on Bhagwaan Vishnu, rest everything for him useless. He felt that Parmatma was always with him. But unknown to him Vishnu ji was always with him, catching his hand and giving support.

Once, one of the Vishnu sevaks, Bhrangrithi questioned him as to
why he always followed the Brahmin. So Vishnu ji narrated an interesting incident to him.

Once Vishnu ji was sitting in Punnag forest in Kailash, that he heard a loud distinct noise coming near him. Suddenly a dark bird with dark complexion like a crow,
but was like a swan in appearance, came near him. Then the same bird dropped a beautiful lotus at his feet and started singing his praises just like a human being. Vishnuji wondered who was this bird actually?
Vishnu ji wanted to know the identity of this bird.
The bird replied that he was Brahma's swan, but while flying across a Pond his complexion suddenly became dark. Actually he had gone to pick up a fig of mrinal from the pond, but he suddenly fainted and fell down and after that he noticed his dark colour turn.
Dazed he questioned aloud when he heard a Kamlini which comprised of five lotus flowers, speak to him in human voice. She replied that in previous to previous birth she was a Brahmin who was lady following strict Pativrata dharma. But once she was
sitting and teaching a maina bird and became late to serve her husband. In anger the Brahmin(husband) cursed her to become a maina. But due to her Pativrata dharma she was born and raised in a ashram as maina in that birth. The Brahmin kanya who was
the daughter of the Rishi over there, daily read Vibhuti Yog from the tenth chapter of Gita in front of her. The maina too recited this along with the kanya. Because of this satkarma of reciting Vibhuti Yog she became an Apsara called Padmavati in Swarg in her next birth.
As an Apsara she was flying in the sky when she noticed the beautiful pond. She came down to bathe. But Rishi Durvaasa happened to come there. Afraid that he would notice her bathing without clothes, she converted herself into a lotus. But anyhow Durvaasa saw her and cursed
her to become a lotus for hundred years. Her two hands and legs each and rest of her body comprised of five lotus flowers. As a Kamlini she still chanted the tenth chapter of Gita. Today was the last day of confinement. So she slowly turned into an Apsara again.
She handed the bird(now the same Brahmin whom Vishnu ji followed) one lotus,So the Brahma's swan(originally the wife of the Brahmin whose husband had cursed) offered the same lotus to Vishnu ji. It continued chanting the Vibhuti Yog & would eventually be relieved of his darkness.
So the same swan was now born as Brahmin Dheerbudhi whom Vishnu followed everywhere.

The tenth chapter is so magical that even if a Brahm hatyara would read this, he too would be released from his sins.

In this city there was an important tirth known as Mekhla, a dip in its pond or a darshan of this tirth were magical. Meaning that all the accumulated sins from previous births too were destroyed. In such a spiritual & sacred town,all its inhabitants too were pious and religious.

Rig Ved 1.34.7

To fully complete a task usually it is repeated three times. This is known as Trivaacha. Then it is deemed to be complete since there is no place left for doubt. Doubt creates confusion and uncertainty which gives rise to ignorance.

To abolish confusion it is better to abolish Doubts. Once our doubts are destroyed our past present and future does not get interrupted. That is the Truth. When this Truth illuminates Atma, this joining together makes Jeev grateful.

Usually we take pride in our past and fear the future. But when the Jeev attains purity,knowledge & liberty then we become fearless &humble.

त्रिर्नो॑ अश्विना यज॒ता दि॒वेदि॑वे॒ परि॑ त्रि॒धातु॑ पृथि॒वीम॑शा यतं।
ति॒स्रो ना॑सत्या रथ्या परा॒वत॑ आ॒त्मेव॒ वातः॒ स्वस॑राणि गच्छतं॥

The eighth chapter of Gita provides you only happiness. This is what Vishnu had said to Lakshmi when she asked the importance of eighth chapter.

In South, there was a village called Amardpur. There lived a Brahmin named Bhavsharma.
A woman of easy virtue was his wife. He had fallen victim to many evil vices. He would accept drink, gamble, rob, in short he was a store house of Vices. He would regularly sit and drink with drunkards. One day he consumed the drink more than what he could digest.
As a result he expired. Due to his sins he was born as a Palm tree. And on that Palm, came to stay a couple of Brahmrakshas.

The previous birth story of this couple(Brahmrakshas) becoming demons is narrated here. In previous birth both were Brahmin husband and wife.

Rig Ved 1.34.6

Dhaatu means senses(इन्द्रियां). The three senses give us happiness:-
1) when senses are away from the subjects
2) when they are totally satisfied by their senses, it is only then our mind, intelligence and चित्त(inner inclinations) are happy,

Atma experiences Chhidabhaas(Divine intelligence). The mind experiences wishes. But only when your mind is satisfied your senses too are satisfied. When mind is happy it becomes pure. Pure mind awakens your Virtue. Then only your thoughts are pure,

Pure thoughts give you the Knowledge to realise the difference between Atma and Anaatma. Then only the jeev is Grateful.

त्रिर्नो॑ अश्विना दि॒व्यानि॑ भेष॒जा त्रिः पार्थि॑वानि॒ त्रिरु॑ दत्तम॒द्भ्यः ।
ओ॒मानं॑ शं॒योर्मम॑काय सू॒नवे॑ त्रि॒धातु॒ शर्म॑ वहतं शुभस्पती ॥

The 7th chapter of Gita is like a nectar to our ears.

In Pataliputra the gopurs(doors) were very high. There lived a Brahmin named Shankukarna who indulged his life with business mentality and never satisfied his pittra's nor prayed.
Once he was travelling with his sons for his fourth marriage when a poisonous snake bit his arm. No mantra or tantra could save him. As he had no Punya in his account he took birth as a snake. He remembered his previous life too well.
In the form of snake he remembered and worried about the wealth that he had buried in his previous birth. So he decided that even as a snake he would protect this wealth.
He appeared in his son's dream and told them about the buried wealth.
