Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 4
Jnyaana Yoga

Tatparya Nirnaya :- आत्ममायया means by one‟s own self Will, establishing oneself in Nature is becoming inclined to ones‟ own character temperament, which is divine, luminous, thus scritures having declared. स्व denotes one‟s special luminous attribute, therefore establishing in one‟s own inclination. तु suggests one‟s special intimate relationship with ones‟s inclination. स्वभाव: denotes one‟s natural attribute. Through creation according to one‟s attributes and one‟s will the immutable Vishnu manifests as creation himself or in many ways, thus in Narayana scripture.
8 - 9 - 10. For the protection of the noble and destruction of the ignoble and for establishing the Perennial Principles, I come to be from age to age. He who, in principle, thus knows My Birth, My Performance and My Splendour, after giving up this body he is not born again. To Me alone he comes, O Arjuna. Renouncing passion, fear and anger; abiding in Me, taking refuge in Me, being purified and austerity, they come back under My own Integral form.
Bhashya :- There is no reason for Sri Hari to take descent for the protection of the noble. But by his own Will and (in some cases) out of sport he descends – “This Will itself is the inclination of tile Lord”, “In common parlance it is like bliss of creativity”, “plays like a child, know his exuberance to be his nature", “He of incomparable prowess left Mathura out of fear of the enemy, as it were” “Sir Hari is complete in Himself. There is nothing to be attained through actions. Even then he performs all types of action. Therefore, the knowers of the supreme wisdom, the equanimous thinkers declare Sri Hari having supra-natural impulse”,thus in Rigveda.
