Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 2
Sankhya Yoga

“Where rajas and tamas do not have any effect, Truth, the Light, nor influence of the Time, there Illusion does not exist; except as Supreme Lord, whom aspirants, noble and ignoble, propitiate as having dark colour, eyes like hundred lotuses, wearing yellow robes, splendorous and having good form, with four arms and best of the bracelets, adorned with ornaments and shining Self-luminous, where souls delivered (from Samsara) dwell, adorned with shining ear rings and the flowing garlands thus, in Bhagavat Puraana. With Consciousness and Bliss the delivered souls become similar to Sri Hari, inside and outside, enjoying the pleasures according to their own capacity (and the state) thus, in Parama Scripture. But even in deliverance, there is no unity between Jiva and the Lord. “Realizing this wisdom, they acquire similarity with Myself. They will never be born again in the creation of the world nor are they aggrieved at the time of dissolution” “He who knows Brahman as the Real, as the Knowledge and as the Infinite, placed in the secret place of the heart and in the highest heaven, realizes all desires along with Brahman, the Intelligent” and “Transcending to that Self which consists of Bliss, going up and down these worlds, eating the food he desires, assuming the form he desires, he sits singing the chant” thus in Taittiriya Upanishad. All friends rejoice in a friend who comes triumphant having had success in an assembly. He divests blame from being attached, provides nourishment, ever vigilant for deed and daring. One enriches himself constantly by reciting hymns; others sing in Shakavari metres. Still one another lays own the rules for performance of sacrifices, thus in Rigveda.“Realizing the Lord and acquiring one's true form, he enjoys and revels in the pleasing state of liberation”, “Then the Wise one overcoming the merits demerits, acquires the immaculate, supreme affinity (with the Lord)”, thus in Chaandogya Upanishad.
