Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 8
Aksharabrahma Yoga

27 - 28. The Bright and the Dark Paths are said to be everlasting ones. The one who traverses on one path does not return and the one who traverses the other, returns. Knowing whatever meritorious fruits are assigned to Vedic studies, to sacrifices, to austerities and charity, the equanimous one attains the Supreme and Primal state.
Bhashya :- one who knowing this Truth and process of attaining it performs actions, will never forget the supreme Lord. Therefore, it is said in Skanda Purana: “Knowing these two paths along with the process, the instruments and the methodology, the one is not deluded in knowing the final goal”.
Tataparya Nirnaya :- He who sees these Paths and the Brahman through the knowledge of the Supreme Lord, attains the Supreme State of Brahman which is more meritorious than the study of the Vedas etc. Thus Padma Purana.

Thus ends the Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya of Sri Madhva on the Eighth Chapter of Bhagavada Gita, the Upanishad, the science of the Absolute, the scripture of equanimity, the dialogue between Sri Krishna and Arjuna entitled “Aksharabrahma Yoga”.
