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.
