Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 10
Vibhuti Yoga

3. He who knows Me as the unborn and without beginning, the Lord of the worlds, being (thereby) undeluded among the mortals, is released from all demerits.
Bhashya :- Ana means that which energizes all and Aaid means earlier. Therefore, the Lord is Anaaid, the energizer without any beginning. From the word Aja His being unborn and without beginning is established.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- Ana means the Primal Breath. Therefore He is even prior to the Primal Breath.
4- 5. Intellect, knowledge, absence of delusion, compassion, truth, self-restraint, tranquility, pleasure and pain, becoming and non-becoming, fear and fearlessness, non-injury, evenness, contentment, austerity, charity, success and failure – all such attitudes arise among the creatures from Me alone.
Bhashya :- Sri Krishna clarifies intelligence about performance and non-performance of action. Wisdom is awareness through intelligent experience about performance and non-performance of action. दम् means restraint of the senses, शम concentrated abidance in Lord. “शम् is unreserved abidance in the Lord and दम् is restraint on senses, thus in Bhagavat Puraana. तुष्टि is contentment arising from the acceptance of the limitation of sense objects. “Feeling of limitation of the sense objects is contentment”, thus having been said.
