Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 2
Sankhya Yoga

17. Know that (the eternal and manifested world) to be Indestructible by which all this is pervaded. Of this Immutable thing there is no destruction.
Bhashya :- In how many ways? Without end, not limited by space; eternal, thus is spoken by the Vedas etc. and also as the indestructible. It cannot be destroyed by curses, undestroyable. And also immutable.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- Even though the Jiva is eternal, the word 'tu' confirms in all respects that Eternity is associated with Sri Vishnu alone. The four attributes of destruction - non-eternal, destruction of the Body, having pain, and incompleteness are never spoken in reference to Sri Hari. However in relation to all other things, there surely results loss, thus, in Maha Varaha Puraana. Attributes are threefold - relating to place, to Time and to Being Complete in oneself. All those attributes are found in full only in Sri Hari, thus, in Parama Scripture. For „ शरीरिणा‟ is the indweller, there is the appearance of the destruction of the body. "By which all this is enveloped" thus being its identification (of the indwelling Self). There is no Space, Attribute or Completeness for the Jiva.
