Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 8
Aksharabrahma Yoga

Tataprya Nirnaya :- Because of the adjective tat, Brahman alone is spoken amidst all other words like Prakriti etc. Further when the words accompanied with sacrifice along with the elements which are useful to the creatures (adhibhootadi), are used for attaining the wisdom of Sri Vishnu alone, why should there be any doubt about others being Brahman? When it is established that the Supreme Immutable is primarily Sri Vishnu alone, the doubt is dispelled. The, reminder is for the ignorant ones for the removal of their doubts.
Again for the removal of doubts, „those who think the Unmanifest as the manifest one‟ saying thus Sri Vishnu Himself by the word अव्यक्तं is clarified.Here in the separate question, अव्यक्तोऽक्षर इत्युक्त : - That which is immutable unmanifest‟ is for the clarification of the nature of gradation to the aspirants, having made a reference to कूटस्थोऽक्षर , the Immutable dwelling within, 'I am the immutable and the best' thus the principle of Sri Vishnu and subservience of others gods has been shown.
4. The nature of all creatures is the mutable state. Purusha is the nature of the divinities. And I Myself am of the nature of sacrifice here in the body, O Best among the bodies.
