Summary of Vedanta

On this Sayana Ekadasi, I just want to give a overview of last six chapters of Srimad Bhagavad Gita, our selected text of yoga vedanta!

1. (chapter 13) Kshetra kshetrajna vibhaga yoga is all about discrimination between the field that is seen / experienced and the seer the knower of that field. The kshetrajna is the imperishable, universal.

2. (chapter 14) Gunatraya Vibhaga yoga is about the knowledge of the “Gunas” satva, rajas and tamas that bind the individual with the prakuti – the nature.

3. (chapter 15) Purushottama Prapti Yoga is about the weapon of “dispassion” – asanga sastra that is needed to cut down the hugely grown tree of samsara! Only after cutting down the tree of samsara one can understand the true nature of the purushottama the lord of all!

4. (chapter 16) Daiva Asura Sampad Vibhaga yoga is about the wealth that is needed for realization. The daivi sampada (the divine wealth) of “saadhana sampatti” an important prerequisite for the final preparation of highest truth.

5. (chapter 17) Sraddha traya vibbhaga yoga is all about the key wealth called “sraddha” when sraddha is dominated by sattva, rajas and tamas its results differ. One should have “sattvika sraddha” for realization. If sraddha is polluted by rajas or tamas it will not lead to the ultimate goal.

6. (chapter 18) Moksha Sannyasa yoga is all about sannyasa and tyaga and a summary of all of the scripture. This is a summary for a mumukshu. The final sure technique of getting liberated or released

So, devotion, discrimination, dispassion, saadhana sampatti and mumukshutvam (intense desire to get liberated) are introduced to the YOGI (and BHAKTA) by LORD in this third part of six chapters of Srimad Bhagavad Gita.

Once perfected a yogi gets established in ultimate bliss of no return!

om tat sat.
