Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 4
Jnyaana Yoga

Bhashya :- Hari Aum! Wisdom and the performance of actions, has been spoken in detail in this Chapter. Tatparya Nirnaya :- Hari Aum ! Superiority of the Intellect, the greatness of the Self, importance of performance of actions and supremacy of Wisdom has been spoken in this Chapter.
1 – 2 – 3. The Resplendent Lord said: This imperishable Yoga was spoken by Me to Vivasvan, Vivasvan spoke it to Manu and Manu repeated it to Ikshvaku. In this manner, this was known by the royal sages, passed over traditionally, till, in course of time, this Supreme Yoga Was lost, O Arjuna.. The same ancient Yoga (Wisdom of equanimity) has now been by Me spoken to you today. You are My devotee and a friend as well, and this is indeed the most secret.
Bhashya :- The wisdom of Pancharatra, which Sri Vishnu initiated to Brahma, Rudra, Indra and the Sun in ancient times, is again spoken briefly here by Sri Krishna to Pandava, who had stationed himself in the centre of the battle field, how the gods, the kings in Krita era, the great sages like Manu and how human beings born in Treta and the other three eras and how from Pandavas to Kshemantakas should perform actions and attain wisdom is prescribed in Gita. Therefore, there is no other scripture similar to Gita. Pancharatra which is supplementary to the Vedas and summary in Gita should be known in entirety, there rarely being any other scripture similar to this, thus, in Brahma Vaivarta Puraana.
