Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 8
Aksharabrahma Yoga

14 – 15 – 16. Whoever with unwavered mind and ever constantly meditates on Me, for that man of equanimity in constant meditation, O Partha, I am easily accessible. Having attained Me, the great souls having reached the Supreme Goal will not return to rebirth, the miserable and impermanent place. From the realm of Brahma downwards, the worlds are subject to recurrence, but having attained Me, O Arjuna, rebirth does not come to be.
Bhasya :- Equanimous is one who constantly endeavours. The Yogi is completely in equanimity. Sri Krishna praises attainment of the Supreme State as the singular goal. Starting from Brahma, who dwells on the mountain Meru, there is no return, thus it is said in Narayana Kalpa. “In all the cases concerned with worlds, from the world of (four-faced) Brahma on Maha Meru mountain to the world of human beings, there is no possibility of attaining the Supreme Being", thus also having been said.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- Deliverance from samsara and attaiing the supreme Lord is possible only through exclusive devotion or Bhakti. Those whose desire is enjoy the heavenly pleasures free from disease, degeneration and old age will soon return to the samsara again without reaching the goal, whereas the devotees of the lord reach the goal.
