(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 5
Karma Sanyaasa Yoga

7. He who has conquered his senses is pure in his self and master of his self, attuned to equanimity, has become self of all beings, is not tainted by actions even if he performs actions.
Bhashya :- In this manner alone is the performance to be done. This has been explained in this verse. One who is indweller in all the creatures is the Supreme Lord. “One who gives... “ etc. He who dwells in the self being nearest is the ancient creator, he is said to be Indweller of all the creatures.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- Considering the Supreme Lord as the indweller of creatures is the prime form of equanimity. Knowing all creatures subservient to the Supreme Lord is knowing Sri Vishnu as the Supreme Self and also becoming one having all pervading vision of the Lord, thus in Agni Purana.
8 – 9. I do not perform any actions, he who realizing this Truth in its essence, considers that in seeing, hearing, touching, smelling, tasting, walking, sleeping, breathing, in speaking, emitting, grasping, opening and closing the eyes, it is only the senses that are occupied with the objects of senses.
Bhashya :- He further clarifies renunciation in these two verses.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- How renunciation could become the form of equanimity is explained in these two verses. Energized by Sri Vishnu alone the mind and all the rest become active. The knowledge that all the others are not independent in themselves is, verily, the essential Truth.
