Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 7
Jnyaana vijnyaana Yoga

Such non-awareness is by the power of the illusion of the supreme Loprd alone, says Sri Krishna in this verse. The thoughtless ones do not know (that everything is) on his account alone. The Lord by His own power and through illusion (Durgadevi) makes His own Self hidden from the minds of people in bondage, thus in Padma Puraana.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- Unmanifest is the supreme Self and Jiva is known as the manifest one. Those who consider unity between them surely go to the place of obscurity, thus having been said.
26. I know the events that are past, that are in the present and O Arjuna, and even those who are yet to come. But no one ever knows Me. Bhashya :- For Me the illusion does not bind, thus Sri Krishna says in this verse. No one, even those extremely capable, can know Me by their own efforts.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- To the extent Sri Hari knows Himself, no one else can know Him. Other like Ramaa and others know Him with his grace to some extent according to their gradation.
