Gita : Ch-6. Introduction-2.
Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :
Chapter-6. ( Dyana-yogam )
Introduction : 2.
Bhagavad-Gita is the purport of the maha vakya "Tattvamasi."
The first six chapters, are about the term "tvam" which represents 'Jivatma' and,
next six ( 7-12 ) chapters, are about the term "tat" which represents ' Paramatma' and,
the last six ( 13-18) chapters, are about the term " asi" which narrates the union of Jivatma and Parmatma,
- this is the opinion of Jnani-s / Pandits.
Out of these first part-the main part- ends with this sixth chapter 'Dyana-yogam.'
The second chapter without introduction discloses the Upanishadic tattvam-s, it seemed something new to Arjuna!
The highest state of a brahma nishtan - "Mahatma" is beautifully drawn in the end of second chapter.
Balancing the mind and control and regulation of self - the supreme state of these when heard the descriptions, Arjuna realised the importance and prepared to attain the state, thereafter moved forward to realise this.
A difficult problem - when Arjuna had to face this- Arjuna fell in confusion - this the time 'Gitopadhesam'was given to him.
In that situation-his mind was not eligible for Dyanam- the full concentration. This does not mean -that Vedanta Sadhanas only for a few.
Though All are not eligible for Dyanam or Meditation, however they can be uplifted step by step - to lead to the stage where the Parama-Padham is situated, Our sastram-s guide us various Sadhana procedures to reach the goal.
