Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


"You are beyond the measures. You are Complete in Yourself. None can attain your greatness". "Resplendent Sri Hari is magnanimous with many attributes and without any defects. None is similar nor superior than You, any where to be seen. Neither were there any nor will there ever be anyone in future, by assistance of others or on their own strength" - thus, in the Scriptures."yastvatmoratireva syat" in this verse, matters of deliverance are mentioned."For the delivered ones, who revel in the Self, no other works are prescribed. Therefore, you must perform the prescribed actions, thus Sri Krishna said to' Arjuna", thus, in Skanda Purana. "For the men of contemplation, through the means of wisdom" [1]. Thus, with the intention of discouraging persons from performance of outward actions alone. "Not for even a moment can one remain without any action" [2]. "Even the maintenance of one's physical life cannot be accomplished without actions" [3]. "But these actions should be performed by giving up attachment and fruits of the performance. This, O Partha, is My decided and best of the views" [4]. The men of wisdom should perform the ordained actions without fail. It is never possible for every one to renounce the actions entirely. The recluse is a renouncer due to his aversion to the outward actions. "the Wise, the seers of that Truth. will communicate to you that Wisdom" [5]. Such words suggest that Wisdom would emerge after .removal of the sheath (of non-awareness).
Thus ends the Introduction to the Bhasya and Tatparya Nirnaya of Sri Madhva on Bhagavad Gits, the Upanishad, the science of the Absoute, , the scripture of equanimity, the dialogue between Sri Krishna and Arjuna, entitled btitlesw the Bhaasyakara‟s introduction.
