Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :
Chapter-13. ( Kshetra-kshetrajna-vibhaga-yogam )
Slokam-4. ( Now please hear My brief description of this field of activity and how it is constituted, what its changes are, whence it is produced, who that knower of the field of activities is, and what his influences are.)
tatkshetram yacca yadrkca yadvikari yatasca yat,
sa ca yo yat prabhavasca tat samasena me srnu.
tat kshetram yat ca = what is that kshetram ( body / field of activities );
yadrk ca = how it is ( as it is );
yadvikari = what are its emotions ( changes );
yatah ca yat = from which, how it happened;
ca = not only that;
sah yah = who is that kshetrajnan;
yat prabhavah ca = what are his glories;
tat samasena = those things, briefly;
me srnu = hear from Me.
Again Lord Krishna explains in brief the true nature of the kshetra the field of activity and the kshetra-jna the knower of the field.
The relationship the kshetra has with the kshetra-jna and the consciousness which is established in Him.
Knowledge of the kshetra means what type entity is embodied and the qualities are what modifications restricts it and what is its means of evolving itself through the interrelationship of matter and spirit.
And of the kshetra-jna exactly what is the atma or eternal soul, who is the knower of the kshetra and what is its powers and potencies.
What the yad viktri of the kshetra means what are its transformations and by what modifications is it affected.
Yatas ca yat means by Him the Supreme Lord the kshetra has originated and that it is He alone who energized it.
The words sa ca ya specifies the Supreme Lord also and indicates His form.
Next - Slokam-5.
