Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 7
Jnyaana vijnyaana Yoga

27 – 28 - 29. Overwhelmed by the dual delusions of aspiration and aversion, O Arjuna, all beings are born in this creation. But the people of meritorious deeds, in whom the demerits have come to an end, being freed from the delusion, worship Me unwavered.
Bhashya :- By delusion due to duality like pleasure and pain or by attachment to sense-objects, from desires and hatred, non-awareness (about Lord) is possible. सर्गे means in the beginning of creation. With the arrival of the body, the desires etc also come to arise. Prior to that (before creation) there was only the non-awareness. There are also some who are exception to this. Thus, in this verse.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- Delusion due to dualities is illusory knowledge. Everything appears similar in darkness and similar is the case in delusion. There is duality between the Jiva and the Lord. The delusion in respect thereof is द्वंद्वमोह. Unreal knowledge is its effect. Because its effect is the great delusion; the mixture thereof is anger, thus in Mahabharata. The Jiva whose attributes are assumed to be in the Lord and that of the Lord, or who sees unity between Jiva and the Lord is said to be one who is bewildered by delusion, thus in Agni Puraana.
