11. The Resplendent Lord said: You grieve for those who need not be grieved. Whatever occurs to your mind, you speak as a man of wisdom. The men of wisdom do not grieve those who have departed and those who are about to depart.
Bhashya :- is what appeals to the mind though it is not according to scriptures. Why is it deserving no thought? Because of (what is stated in the line as)
Tatparya Nirnaya :- Those who are enlightened (to the wisdom of the scriptures) are Those who are opposed (to the wisdom of the scriptures) are Contrary (to the wisdom of the scriptures), is what is How? Because of (what is stated in the sentence commencing).
12. Never that I was not; nor that you were not, nor that these lords of men were not. Nor is there any time in future, when we all will not be.
Bhashya :- Why is such statement made -The Lord being eternal, such statement is irrelevant and self evident, therefore, is made only as illustration. Even as Lord is Eternal as well confirmed by Vedanta, even so, you and these lords of men are also ever eternal.
