Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 6
Atmasamyama Yoga

21 - 22. Where the supreme pleasure which is beyond senses is perceived through intelligence, having established himself there, he no longer wavers away from the Lord. Gaining which he considers no other gain to be superior to that and abiding therein, he is not shaken even by the greatest of the sorrow.
Bhashya :- तत्वत: means in form of supreme Lord.
23. Let him know that severance of association with sorrow to be the state of equanimity, which when practiced with determination unites the heart without doubt.
Bhashya :- दु:खसंयोग means that which severs the association with sorrow. संयोग shows that not only the pain arising is severance but also severs the possibility of any pain arising in future. निश्चयेन योक्तव्य: means one should enjoin oneself with determination.
24 - 25. Abandoning all the desires influenced by prior will without leaving any trace, restraining with mind the senses from every side, bringing down the activities little by little through the steady reasoning and establishing the mind in the self, let him not delve on any thing else.
Bhashya :- सर्वान means all the things, अशेषत: means without leaving any traces (of desires). मनसैव means by the mind alone it is possible to restrain, not otherwise. Intellect is the instrument for restraining the mind as well as for pleasures.
