Gita : Ch-5. Slo-26.





Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :


Chapter-5.  ( Karma-sanyasa-yogam )


Slokam-26. (   Those who are free from anger and all material desires, who are self-realized, self-disciplined and constantly endeavoring for perfection, are assured of liberation in the Supreme in the very near future. )



Kamakrodhaviyuktanam     yatinam     yatacetasam,


abhito    brahmanirvanam      vartate     viditatmanam.



Kama-krodha-viyuktanam  =  those    who    do    not    have    desire    and    anger;

yatacetasam  =  and    who    have    full     control    over    the    mind;

viditatmanam     yatinam   =  self-realized    saintly   persons;

abhitah  =  around    everywhere;

brahmanirvanam      vartate  =  brahmanandam    ( moksham  )   ever    present.



To those aspirants free from kama or lust and krodha or anger who are yatinam or renounced sannyasis who are celibate brahmins devoting themselves exclusively to the service of the Supreme Lord Krishna and His authorised incarnations.

Such being perceiving the Brahman or spiritual substratum pervading all existence realise moksa or liberation from material existence everywhere in every action.

Now the subject of karma yoga or the performance of prescribed Vedic activities which has as its aim atma tattva or soul realisation is now concluded.



Moreover sannyasins or celibate brahmins who have fully accepted the renounced order for life completely withdrawing from external perceptions in the material world for devotion to the Supreme Lord when being free from kama or lust and krodha or anger and achieving atma tattva or realisation of the soul they achieve in this life the Brahman or the spiritual substratum pervading all existence and moksa or liberation from the material existence as well.


This slokam conveys the relative ease by which sannyasis or celibate brahmins exclusively devoted to the Supreme Lord Krishna can achieve the unparalleled bliss of atma tattva or soul realisation as well as the Brahman or spiritual substratum pervading all existence.
