Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya
(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)
Jnyaana vijnyaana Yoga
Tatparya Nirnaya :- means that He alone is the Supreme, none other. Considering anything else independent of Him is futile.
On account of external association with sorrow, Jiva assumes a distinct identity. Being ever free from sorrow Sri Devi is known as the supreme. Even though associated with little sorrow but not being affected thereby, Vayu is the intermediate- मध्यम्, not being subservient to anyone and being Independent no one is happy like him or more than him. Sri Vishnu is known as the Most Supreme One. Since there are none between these two, He is not merely the superior but also the Supreme One. Because of the relationship (of sufferings) Jiva is considered inferior. Therefore all the gross are considered inferior without any doubts. Even they are inferior who are inimical to the Lord. Having no relationship with the Consciousness, they are ever associated with sorrows.
