Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 9
Rajavidya-rajaguhya Yoga

20 – 21 – 22 - 23. The knowers of the three Vedas, who partaking the Soma elixir, are purified, seeking Me with sacrifices, propitiate Me for the Way to heavens. Acquiring merits, they ascend the world of the chief of the Gods and enjoy the pleasures of those Gods in heaven. Having enjoyed the auspicious world of heavens, conforming to the righteous course of the Vedas they gain the ever fleeing pleasures they return to the world of mortals, with their merits having exhausted. But the other people who reflecting on Me, propitiate ever persevering, to them I bring equanimity and well-being as well. Those who are devotees of other gods, who sacrifice being completely receptive, even those, though not according to the prescribed manner verily sacrifice unto Me alone, O Arjuna.
Bhashya :- Even then he shows that worshipping the supreme Lord rather than propitiation of other gods is superior, thus Sri Krishna demonstrates here. अनन्य means those who do not think of anyone else, thus in Gautam Section: “Renouncing all the desires in mind, when nothing else than the Pure, Primal Lord is reflected upon, they the thinkers, verily, being ananya attain Me”. Thus in Moksha Dharma, “By desires which are superior to time, being in communion with all faculties concentrated, it is possible to see the Resplendent Lord, enveloped in the circle of the Light." Ever, in all respects, with all equanimity.
