Discussion-6. 20 virtues :


I.

1.
Thus these 20 virtues that have been described by Lord Krishna constitute the essence of knowledge for their attributes are the means which opens the way to this highest existence. 

2.
Whatever is contrary to these 20 virtues of renowned excellence should always be rejected as it is understood to be ignorance and emphatically antagonistic to truth. 

3.
This has been confirmed in by gone ages by great sages and seers such as Vyasa, Vasistha and Parasara. 


II.

1.
Having described the characteristics of the ksetra or field of activity, Lord Krishna enumerates the attributes that are required to qualify for knowledge of the nature of ksetra-jna or knower of the field of activity. 

2.
The absence of desire for honour and the absence of pride imply both reverence for the Supreme Lord and absence of hypocrisy. 

3.
Thus a person becomes righteous by only performing pious activities in accordance with the injunctions of the Vedic scriptures.
