Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 4
Jnyaana Yoga

Bhashya :- By mere knowledge of Action (Karma) one is not liberated, but by the knowledge of its nature does one become completely liberated, thus is the intention. Without knowledge of the Resplendent Lord. whose is the Action, the improper Action and the non-Action? Realization, verily, is deliverance; how can there be liberation otherwise? Thus has been said. Here अकर्म- means non-performance of Action, विकर्म- means improper action, prohibited action, which creates bondage. Therefore reflecting on these factors, the performance of action should be initiated. The persons do not become deluded because of curses etc. but because even seers are known to be deluded, because it (karma) is impossible to be known, since it is gahna, bewildering.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- Actions also have originated from Lord, thus one should know.
18 - 19. He who perceives Action in non-Action, and non-Action in Action, he, verily, is the intelligent among men. He is indeed in communion, being accomplished in Action. He whose all activities are devoid of desires and whose actions are burned by the fire of wisdom, him the wise call a man of intelligence.
