Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 8
Aksharabrahma Yoga

5. At the time of departure, remembering Me alone, whoever leaves his body, he comes to be of My nature; of this there is never any doubt.
Bhashya :- मदभावम् means under my control, without expectation, without any pain, fully blissful existence. “For .the delivered the goal is conceptualized as Brahman, the Lord of the Field”, thus in Moksha Dharma.
6 – 7. Whatever nature one remembers at the time of leaving the body, that nature, verily, he will ever characterize, O Kaunteya. Therefore, during all the time remember Me and fight. When your Mind and Intellect is offered to Me alone, to Me alone you shall come without any doubt.
Bhashya :- Leaves the body remembering - In order that there should be no contradiction or confusion in the mind of the ignorant ones, the adjective अन्ते in the end has been placed, (not that such remembrance should be only at the time of departure). The wise ones have no such doubts. When the unwise man may leave the body without remembering. There is no doubt that at the time of leaving the body no one remembers (the Lord) because of sorrow etc.” “At the time of leaving the body his frontal portion shines and in that light the self leaves", thus the scriptures say. Therefore when the time of departure comes one should ever be attuned to His nature. bhava means internal consciousness. The internal consciousness is that in which one should abides in. It is said „the nature which abides within‟.
