Gita : Ch-13. Slo-2.

Saturday, September 03, 2016.

Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :

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

Slokam-2. ( Lord  Sri Krishna  reply  to  Arjuna )

Sri-bhagavan uvaca

idam  sariram  kaunteya  kshetram  iti  abhidhiyate,

etat  yah  vetti  tam prahuh  kshetrajna  iti  tadvidah.

Sri-bhagavan uvaca  =  Lord  replied;

 kaunteya  idam  sariram  =  arjuna!  this  body;

kshetram  iti  abhidhiyate  =  (is)  called  as  Kshetram;

etat  yah  vetti  =  one  who  knows  this;

tam  kshetrajna  iti  =  he  is  Kshetragjan;

tadvidah. prahuh   =  so  say  the  known  person.


"Atma-Sakshatkaram" :   is  an  'Aparokshanuputi'  ( inner  experience ).

It  is  not  a  practical ( external practice ),  but  is  inner  regulation  and  practice.

The  great  Bharatheeya  Rishi-s  declared  that  it  is  "Atmanusandhanam  itself  is  path  of  Atmanubhuti."

What  is  svarupam  of  Atma,  and  and  its encircling  Atma's  specifications  are  shown  in  this  chapter  scientifically.

Sadhakan from  Anatma-things,  by  separating  Atma-svarupam,  and  he  who  understands,  that  is  his  trua  Atma  itself,  in  this  stage  he  knows  that  Anatma-vastus  are  not  true.


One  who  experiences  the 'Jagratha-avastha'  ( awaken ),  he  himself  experiences  in  his  mind's  a  special  reflection  of  bhavam  the  'Swapna-avastha' ( dream ).

When  he  wakes  up  only  he  understands  it  is  mind's  false  creation  only, i.e, dream.

Likewise,  our  true  svarupam,  'Paramatma-tattvam,'  when  get  into  it  this  'Diverse-Prapancham  disappears.

In  "Atma-Sakshatkatam"  there  is  no  place  for  'Anatma-vastus.'


Thus  in  tattva-sastram's  drushti  ( view )  there  are  two  parts  for  man : 1. the  'JADA-VASTU-SANGHATHAM'  AND 2.  'CHAITHANYAM'.

In  this  slokam  these  things  are  dealt with.

Srimad Bhagavad-Gita:

Chapter-5. ( Karma-sanyasa-yogam )

Slokam-27 & 28. (  Shutting out all external sense objects, keeping the eyes and vision concentrated between the two eyebrows, suspending the inward and outward breaths within the nostrils—thus controlling the mind, senses and intelligence, the tranecendentalist becomes free from desire, fear and anger. One who is always in this state is certainly liberated.)
