Just as a well planted field yields abundant results and a poorly planted field yields poor results.

Gita : Ch-13. Introduction-7.

Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :
 Chapter-13. ( Kshetra-kshetrajna-vibhaga-yogam )
 Introduction-7.

Through  the  way,  of  "VIVEKAM  and  VICHARAM"  if  to  separate ( both )  and  knowing  and  experiencing  them,  by  'Dyanam' renouncing  the  attachment  towards  body-mind-bhuddhi,  one  can  attain  mokasham  from  'Kshetram' and  the  connected  miseries  of  'Samsaram'.

Thereafter,  the  'Jivatma' ( Kshetragjnan )  leave  the  "Pariccinna-bhavam" ( body )  and  then  joins,  its  own  "Svasvarupam" ( Paramatma-Bhavam ).

The  Jivatma  which  is  citta-svarupi,  engaged  in  the  field  of  sensuous  objects,  thereon  know  and  experience  them,  then  becomes  ' kartrutva-bhoktrutva-abhiman,  jiva.

It  means  that  the Suddha-chaithanyam  ( Pure-inner-Self ) when  relates / mix / joins  with  'Kshetram' it  becomes  'Kshetragjnan'.

If  'Kshetram' is  removed  from  …

Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :

Chapter-13. ( Kshetra-kshetrajna-vibhaga-yogam )

Introduction-6.

Paramatma  when  through  the  medium  of  body+mind+bhuddhi,  knows  the  the  'Vishaya-Prapancham-s'   ( Kshetram ),  gets  the  status  of  "Kshetragjnan".


The  prapanch-dharma-s  such  as  joy  and  sorrow,  victory  and  defeat,  success  and  failure  and  so  other  miseries :  the  one  experiencing   ---  the  experiencer  of  all  miseries  of  samsaram  ---
is  the  so  far  known  "Kshetragjnan"  ---- specially  described  ---  is  none  other  than  our  jivatma  only.


By  the  path  of  'Vivekam  and  Vicharam'  when  we study  and  separate  the  "KSHETRAM  AND  KSHETRGJNAN,"   thereafter,  by  renouncing  the  pride  in  body-mind-intelligence,  from  the  "KSHETRAM"  and  the  related  "SAMSARAM" attain  "MOKSHAM." 

In  that  path,  "JIVATMA"(  "KSHETRAGJNAN…

Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :

Chapter-13. ( Kshetra-kshetrajna-vibhaga-yogam )

Introduction-5.

In  total  the  bodies,  and  their  ' drsya-prapancham   called  as  "KSHETRAM,"  and  one  which  illuminates  and  manifests,  through  them  is  "Param-Porul"  (  Divine  aspect )  called  as  "KSHETRAJNAN".


The  term  "Kshtrajnan"  indicates  the  meaning  'one  who  knows  "KSHETRAM"   and  this  further  the  state  of  "PARAMATMA."

When  to  know  many  other  things  only  the  term  "KNOWER" has  its  importance.


The  one  drives  vehicles,  is  driver,  who  riding  the horse,  is  rider,  who  is  swimming  in  the  water  is  swimmer.

Once  leave  vehicle,  he  is  no  more  a  driver,  again  who  dismounted  from  the  horse  is  not  a  rider,  further  we  cannot  say  one  who  comes  out  of  the  pool,  a  swimmer.

Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :

Chapter-13. ( Kshetra-kshetrajna-vibhaga-yogam )

Introduction-4.


"We  can  say  that  the  action  of  vastra-anavaranam  is  Dyanam /Meditation."

The  details  of  'Dyana-yogam'  that  is  various  stages  in : such  as  body-mind-bhuddhi,  and  their  co-ordination,  the  group's  state  in  Dyanam,  etc.,  these  details  were  explained  in  fifth  and  sixth  chapters.

Sitting  in  the  prescribed  'Asanam'  ( Pose ),  thereafter  concentrating  the  cittam  ( mind ),  

What  will  you  do  with  concentrating  mind?

Is  it  possible  to  detach  the  Self  ( Atma )  from  the  bhavam  of  body  (  body 'I' ),  thereafter,  concentrate  on  Supreme  Reality  ( God )?

 In  this  chapter-13. these  questions  are  answered,  in  great  detail.
