Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 4
Jnyaana Yoga

For the sake of showing that complete deliverance is possible only through complete Wisdom of His essence and not by knowing it partially. Whoever; knowing all the principles mentioned in Vedas, adores Me always, for him alone do I show Myself: not for others, thus, in Maha Kurma Puraana. Only if one knows in this manner, there would be no re-birth, thus the words mentioned here should be understood. Due to the use of the words there is no other way, which shows that never for others would the Lord will be seen. The adjective tatvatah shows that entirety of Wisdom is essential and where it is used thus, there it would not be contradictory. A human being will not know by understanding a single principle without first knowing the entirety of the principles. Even the great god, Indra would not be capable; therefore one should endeavour to know all the principles, thus in Skanda Purana.
By renouncing passion etc. they become delivered, says Sri Krishna in this verse. manmayaa means having firm abidance in Me. In all directions seeing none other than the Lord, this is the meaning.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- By Wisdom gained and understanding the attributes spoken in Vedas and Itihas (Mahabharata) in different places, the deliverance is possible, similarly by counseling etc. but not from any other way, thus, in Brahma Vaivarta Purana. Not by mere knowledge of birth, performance of actions is deliverance possible. He who knows the Primacy of the Lord becomes aware of (His) integral form. Only those who know the Resplendent Lord thus alone are liberated, not the others. Being integrated with Me means acquiring a form similar to My integral form.
