Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 4
Jnyaana Yoga

11 - 12. As one approaches Me, so do I attend to them; men on all sides emulate My path, O Partha, in all respects. Those who desire fulfilment of the performance of their actions, sacrifice to these gods, for quick are the fruits born from the performance of action in this world of men.
Bhashya :- Not by propitiating Sri Krishna alone will there be deliverance, deliverance is possible even in other ways also. Responds by granting appropriate fruits, not serving by inclination. Those who propitiate other gods also propitiate him alone, because he is the energizer of all the actions and the enjoyer of all things, he being referred among all the gods as the One alone, as in Vedas. The Resplendent Lord (Sri Vishnu) alone is referred there. In the navel of the Immortal is all these offered. Thus, His form of Lotus-like navel is shown in symbolic manner. By following other gods, how are they said to be following Sri Krishna alone? This has been mentioned in the later part of this verse. quick indeed are the fruits attained. From Sri Hari alone are the fruits of labour - thus in Chhandogya. Up.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- the Lord grants fruits appropriate to their deeds. Even those who propitiate other gods, having surrendered to him, even though not following the Vaishnava path, appropriate fruits are made available. Worship to other gods also comes to be offered to Me in the end. The object of getting the fruits of heaven becomes possible; not otherwise. Therefore propitiate Him, thus, in Agni Puraana.
