22. He is the Person, the Supreme, O Partha, attained through intense commitment, in whose ultimate abode all this, that is pervaded, exists.
Bhashya :- Sri Krishna speaks about the Supreme Subject as the Purusha.
23 – 24 - 25 - 26. I will speak to you, O Arjuna, of the time, during which if the equanimous ones depart and never return, and also of the time during which if departed, they do return. Fire, light, day, the bright fortnight, the six months of the northern course, the people traversing on that path, wise in wisdom of Brahman, go to the Absolute. Smoke, night, similarly the dark fortnight, the six months of the southern course - the equanimous one traversing that path and attaining the lunar light, returns. Never will the equanimous one who knows the Paths, O Partha, be deluded. Therefore, in all the circumstances, O Arjuna, you should be firm in equanimity.
Bhashya :- Sri Krishna speaks about the presiding deities through whose help, if one departs, one reaches the state of freedom or the state of being in bondage, yatra kaale is only a qualifying statement Since „through Agni, the splendour‟ etc. are also the avenues, he also speaks about them.
