Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 6
Atmasamyama Yoga

The steps of those who have seen Sri Vishnu, will never traverse the path of unrighteousness. If unknowingly a wrong is done it (the unrighteousness) gets burnt away. Many ancient kings, gods and even seers have committed great wrongs. These (प्रारब्ध कर्म) however become only pointers for perceiving pain.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- In all the places, Sri Vishnu alone abides.
32. Be who perceives similarity, the likeness or his own self in all the places, O Arjuna, whether in pleasure or in pain, he is considered to be supremely equanimous.
Bhashya :- He explains the state of similarity in different way in this verse.
33 – 34 – 35 . Arjuna said: This equanimity which is spoken by you, O Krishna, the nature or equality is not grasped by me because or my unstable foundation due to restlessness. Restless is this mind, 0 Krishna, impetuous, strong and obstinate. I consider it stubborn to be controlled and difficult like the wind. The Resplendent Lord said: Without doubt, O Arjuna, the mind is difficult to be controlled and ever dynamic. With effort, however, O Kaunteya and with dispassion it can be controlled.
Bhashya :- I do not perceive the state of equanimity firmly established, because of the restlessness of the mind (says Arjuna). Because of the restlessness of the mind and in the absence of practice and renunciation, the firmly established state of equanimity is surely not possible”, thus in.Vyas Yoga.
