Gita : Ch-6. Slo-39.





Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :


Chapter-6. ( Dhyana-yogam )


Slokam -39. (   This is my doubt O Krishna, and I ask You to dispel it completely. But for Yourself, no one is to be found who can destroy this doubt. )




etanme    samsayam    krishna     chettumarhasyaseshatah,



tvadanyah     samsayasyasya     chettha    na     hyupapadyate.





Kishna!     me    etat    samsayam    =    Hey    Krishna!    this    doubt    of    mine;

aseshatah     chettum     arhasy   =    ( it   is   )    possible   only  to    you   to   dispel    completely;

asya     samsayasya    chettha    =     to    dispel    this    doubt;

tvadanyah    na     upapadyate    hi    =    without   you   nobody   can    solve    this.





Now Lord Krishna is being beseeched by Arjuna to definitely dispel his doubts as other than the omniscient and omnipotent Supreme Lord there is no one else who can remove it.


No matter how much one may ever so enthusiastically embark on the path of yoga or the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the ultimate consciousness; if one lacks the sufficient determination to maintain the persistent application of regulated discipline the mind will inevitably be distracted and deviate and one will fail to succeed in reaching perfection in yoga. What will be the fate of such a person? Will they perish like a divided cloud in the sky leaving the rest behind while failing to unite with the cloud in front of it in the distance? What is meant by double loss? The word apratistho means unfixed situation and the words vimudho brahmanah pathi means baffled due to ignorance of the Brahman or the spiritual substratum pervading all existence which is the first cognition on the way to achieving enlightenment.


The first loss is failure to secure svarga loka or the heavenly planets for executing the appropriate actions. Prescribed Vedic activities performed with the goal of residing in svarga loka liberally reward one's efforts and allows one to enjoy heavenly delights for as long a time as one's merits warrant. But actions performed by persons without such intent do not enable a person to reside there hence one forfeits the opportunity for heavenly pleasures. The second loss is ignorance of the path of the Brahman which includes performing selfless actions without desire for reward while contemplating on the atma or soul. But the person who fails to pursue it consistently and steadfastly will deviate and stray away and will lose in both instances. So Arjuna wants Lord Krishna to alleviate his doubts


Lord Krishna is being requested to dispel all doubts concerning the destination of one who does not succeed in their life in perfecting yoga or the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the ultimate consciousness. All embodied beings are perishable and devoid of omniscience so as the omniscient Supreme Lord and most affectionate friend it would behove Him to completely clear up this question.
