(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 5
Karma Sanyaasa Yoga

Bhashya :- Hari Aum ! In this Chapter Karma Sanyaasa is clarified. The purport of Karma Yoga is further explained through statements like „being content‟. Therefore perform actions, being equanimous in action.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- Hari Aum ! In this Chapter the features of renunciation and performance of action are explained. 1. Arjuna said: Renunciation of action and performance or action, as well, O Krishna, you have been praising. Between these two, which is the most propitious, that you tell me with certainty.
Bhashya :- Since O Lord, you attract all the world through your actions, the sages, who are the knowers of Brahman, cal1 you Krishna, thus in Maha Kurma Puraana. The word sanyaas has been explained by the Resplendent Lord in reply to (Arjuna 's) query: “If sanyaas is more propitious, then desire for the war is opposed to renunciation”.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- Being confused with Equanimity through performance of action as well as renunciation of action he (Arjuna) asks the question about sanyaas (सं+न्यास).
