Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 9
Rajavidya-rajaguhya Yoga

10. Under My guidance the Nature gives birth to all the animate and the inanimate. In this manner, O Arjuna, does the world operate.
Bhashya :- If indifferent then does the Nature evolve the Universe on its own? Therefore, the word mayaa - by Him is by way of clarification. The one who oversees the Nature evolving the Universe is the Lord Himself, this is the meaning. “The Prakriti which gives birth to the universe is herself given birth by the Lord, who creates the beings according to the actions of each of the beings”, similarly thus in scriptures.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- अध्यक्ष is spoken as One who has supervision on each of the created beings. Therefore, He is अधिपति, Lord of the Creation.
11 – 12 – 13 - 14. The deluded know Me not, who has taken habitation in the human form; they do not realize the supreme attributes of Mine, as the Lord of all creatures. Deluded by futile desires, futile endeavours and futile knowledge and futile understanding these people take shelter in demonic unenlightened nature. But the great-souled, O Partha, abiding in My divine nature, knowing this imperishable source of beings propitiate Me with undistracted mind. Ever eulogizing Me, steadfast in their efforts, bowing down to Me in communion, they worship Me, ever disciplined.
Bhashya :- Therefore, how is He not known? What is their goal ? For the deluded ones the human body makes them believe that they are like human forms, not in human form. Therefore, it is said – “In this world, O King, the things which are associated with the body are endowed with the five gross elements as willed by the Lord. The Lord, the Supreme Sriman Narayan a alone is the creator of the world. Besides He is the indweller in the creatures, the giver of boons, with form as well as formless, one who is served by the un-manifest power which destroys the creation”, thus in Moksha Dharma.
