Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 11
Vishvarupadarshana Yoga

Tatparya Nirnaya :- Since the Lord is endowed with complete attributes, destroys the worlds, is the knower of all, and the one who moves all, He is known as Kaala. Thus in Varaha Puraana. By using the adjective Aip, the exclusion of his brothers is suggested.
33 - 34. Therefore, you arise and gain glory; conquering the enemies, enjoy the prosperous empire. By Me alone are all these slain already. You become merely the instrument, O Arjuna. Drona, Bhishma, Jayadratha, Karna and other warriors are already slain. Do not be distressed. Fight and you shall conquer the enemies in battle.
Bhashya :- “He who severs Jayadratha's head and makes it to fall on the earth, his head will be broken into pieces," such boon of his father being specially referred. Karna has the power supported by the Indra's boon.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- Since Jayadratha had a boon from his father his name has been specially mentioned. One who kills (him) is himself nearer to death. Later making Arjuna stand aside, Sri Krishna himself kills him (Jayadratha).
