Sapta-shloki Gita.

Sri Vedavyasa has advised in Mahabharata:

gita sugita kartavya, kim anyaih sastra vistaraih

ya svayam padmanabhasya, mukha-padmad vinihsrta

i.e. one should treat Gita with utmost care as it consists of code of conduct for humans as explained by Lord Padmanabha- Vishnu himself and contains essence of sanatan dharma.

Sri balgangadhar Tilak in his work Srimab Bhagwad Gita Rahasya has mentioned that people have tried touse short versions of Gita containing 7 verses when there is time constraint.

Jyotish guru Sh Sanjay Rath in one of his posts in an internet group had given the correlation of these seven shlokas with planets few years ago .

यः प्रयाति त्यजन्देहं स याति परमां गतिम्॥८ – १३॥

२ स्थाने हृषीकेश तव प्रकीर्त्या जगत्प्रहृष्यत्यनुरज्यते च।
रक्षांसि भीतानि दिशो द्रवन्ति सर्वे नमस्यन्ति च सिद्धसङ्घाः॥११ – ३६॥

2. It is meet, O Hrishikesha! that the world delights and rejoices in Thy praise; Rakshasas fly in fear to all quarters, and all the hosts of Siddhas bow to Thee. (Ch. XI-36)

कविं पुराणमनुशासितारमणोरणीयांसमनुस्मरेद्यः।
सर्वस्य धातारमचिन्त्यरूपमादित्यवर्णं तमसः परस्तात्॥८ – ९॥

4. He who meditates on the Omniscient, the Ancient, the Ruler (of the whole world), minuter than an atom, the Supporter of all, of form inconceivable, effulgent like the Sun and beyond the darkness (of ignorance) at the time of death, goes to the Supreme Resplendent Purusha. (Ch. VIII-9)

वेदैश्च सर्वैरहमेव वेद्यो वेदान्तकृद्वेदविदेव चाहम्॥१५ – १५॥

मन्मना भव मद्भक्तो मद्याजी मां नमस्कुरु।
मामेवैष्यसि युक्त्वैवमात्मानं मत्परायणः॥१ – ३४॥
