Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :
Chapter-13. ( Kshetra-kshetrajna-vibhaga-yogam )
Slokam-1. ( Arjuna question to Lord Sri Krishna ) -
(Arjuna said: O Lord, I wish to know about prakrti [nature], Purusha [the experiencer], and the field and the knower of the field, and of knowledge and the end of knowledge. )
prakrtim purusham caiva kshetram kshetragjnameva ca,
etadveditumicchami jnanam jneyam ca kesava.
arjuna uvaca = Arjuna said;
kesava! = O Lord;
prakrtim purusham ca eva = nature, and the experiencer;
kshetram kshetragjnam ca eva = kshetram (body), and kshetragjnan ( jivatma );
jnanam jneyam ca etat = jnanam ( knowledge ), jneyam ( object of the knowledge, all about these;
veditum icchami = I wish to know.
In the first six chapters of Srimad Bhagavad-Gita known as the Karma Yoga section, Lord Krishna described the true nature of the atma or eternal soul, which is the sole objective of realisation and the means to perceive it by either jnana yoga or the path of spiritual knowledge or karma yoga the path of spiritual activities.
In the second six chapters known as the Bhakti Yoga section, Lord Krishna explains the true nature of the Supreme Lord, who is the ultimate goal of attainment along with precise knowledge of m His glory, majesty and supremacy revealing in conclusion that bhakti or exclusive loving devotion is the most superior of processes for attaining the Supreme Lord as it is the most profound means as well as the topmost goal of human existence.
Now in the final six chapters known as the Jnana Yoga section, Lord Krishna expands on the topics of penance, detachment, the three types of sacrifice, etc. that were not fully delineated in the previous 12 chapters.
The true nature of god-realisation achieved by the those qualified by bhakti possessing godly endowments of spiritual attributes as well as knowledge and renunciation are exclusively enraptured by and devoted to the Supreme Lord Krishna.
