Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 7
Jnyaana vijnyaana Yoga

Bhashya :- Hari Aum ! In previous Chapters primarily the method of Wisdom was narrated, in the next Six Chapters greatness of the Lord is spoken.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- Hari Aum ! The supremacy of the Lord is particularly spoken here,
1 - 2. The Resplendent Lord said: Listen then, O Partha, how with (your) mind attuned to Me and equanimity or communion with Me, you will know Me in entirety without any doubt. Without leaving anything, I will convey this jnyaana (Knowledge) to you and the vijnyaana (Wisdom), knowing which there would not remain anything else left to be known.
Bhashya :- आसक्तमना: means extremely attached to mental disposition. मदाश्रय: means accepting that the Lord does everything, He alone is the protector, in Him alone do I abide. अंसशयं is the special predicate.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- speaks with special reference to the glory of the suprme Lord.
3. Among human beings, rarely one among the thousands strives for perfection; even among those rarely does one know Me in Truth.
Bhashya :- ज्ञानम् - Knowledge concerning the Lord. विज्ञानम् is Wisdom, special knowledge. Inadequate is this Knowledge among human beings.
