Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 5
Karma Sanyaasa Yoga

18. The men of wisdom perceive uniformly Brahmins who are learned or a humble cow, an elephant, a dog and even an outcaste. Bhashya :- On account of the experience of the Lord's existence in every Being and through the instrument of supraconscious awareness - this is the purport of this verse.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- Even though there is external difference of forms of the creatures, Sri Vishnu is ever present in all of them in entirety, even in grass and the rest.
19 - 20. Even here (in this life), they transcend this world of creation, with their equanimous mind established in Lord and become faultless and similar in all things and established in Brahman. The knowers of Brahman abiding in Brahman, being firm in understanding and free from delusion, neither rejoice on receiving the pleasant nor grieve on receiving the unpleasant.
Bhashya :- He praises the equanimous perception here in this verse. In the remaining part of the Chapter, renunciation, equanimous action and Wisdom are explained together.
