Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 4
Jnyaana Yoga

33. Superior to the sacrifice of wealth is the sacrifice of wisdom. All such actions entirely culminate, O Arjuna, in Wisdom alone.
Bhashya :- Every action recommended above are useful elements for उपासना, engaging oneself in adoration (of the Lord). Wisdom is the resultant fruit, this is the meaning.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- Everything, verily, is performance as sacrifice. But in entirety, it amounts to little. In Wisdom it culminates and in Wisdom alone it finds fulfillment. As warriors in bowarrows” one should consider all the seven (Sri Krishna, Satyaki and the five Pandavas). Thus the word समाप्ति is used to indicate entirety.To signify the need for completion the sword of Wisdom for destroying the doubts is again the importance of equanimity is spoken.
