4-16..Ramanuja’s Commentary

..Exactly what is the nature of karma or action as performed by the aspirants treading the path to moksa or liberation from material existence and what also is akarma or inaction? By the term akarma is inferred true knowledge relating to the doer which is the atma or soul. What is the action which needs to be performed and what is the wisdom of inaction that is involved in such an action? Even persons of discrimination and knowledge are bewildered in this matter and confused do not understand this differences properly. Lord Krishna now promises to dispel all delusion in the intricacies of this subject. What is the purpose of performing actions as a matter of duty? The satisfaction consists in the knowledge of knowing why the duty is to be discharged. The knower is the person who performs works aspiring for moksa. The ignorant is one who performs work for sense gratification. The former performs work without egoism while the latter performs works full of egoissm. The former is eligible for liberation the latter is eligible for bondage. Why this is so difficult to understand is explained in the next verse.

4-17..Ramanuja’s Commentary

….The actual nature of karma or prescribed Vedic actions performed for attaining moksa or liberation from material existence should be understood. Actions which are nitya or regular and actions which are naimittika or occasional if done with any sense of enjoyment in mind or if they are done with the desire for material rewards should both be known to be vikarma or improper actions. The absence of action known as akarma which sometimes can be considered action as well should also be comprehended. Therefore the path of karma is not easily discernible for one seeking moksa. The reason why regular and occasional activities should be clearly assimilated for an aspirant for moksa is because the rewards for each are varied but one should look at them all with equipoise and realising that they all have one uniform purpose and that is the fulfilment of the goal which is the attainment of moksa. Without proper teaching and understanding of the Vedic scriptures one will not perceive this critical conclusion but this is the Vedic conception as revealed by Lord Krishna already and thus it is not necessary to expatiate upon the subject further here.

4-18..Ramanuja’s Commentary

..Action is karma and inaction is akarma. Actions concerning the atma or soul which is the essential subject to be known in human existence is also considered akarma. How this is to be understood Lord Krishna is explaining here. There are two categories to be considered.The person who performs actions while continuously contemplating the atma The person who immersed within the atma perceives the atma performs all actionsOne who by contemplating the true nature of the atma while performing all activities is in the first category. One who conceives the nature of all activities as actually the doings of the atma is in the second category. By actually performing prescribed Vedic activities with ones body and at the same time meditating upon it within ones mind, the objective as well the subjective realisations are achieved and the true nature of the atma is perceived. Whoever sees that karma is within akarma in regards to atma tattva or knowledge o the soul. Such a person is considered to be situated in wisdom and conversant with the ultimate purport of the Vedic scriptures. Such a spiritually intelligent person has realised the essence of all Vedic teachings and has qualified themselves for moksa or liberation from material existence.4-19..brindavanam ..pulliya maram..romba kaalamerukirathu engey.. pookkum kaaykkum  aanaal pazlukkaathu..saapathaal..gopikalin azlahai keduthathaal..gopikalin rasa kreedai ninaithu paarthi erupaan kannan….velluthu vidum pirinthu erunthathaal.. pinbu karuppu varum..chaityanya maha prabu kovil…yarukku muyartchikal -yellaam kaamathai thavirnthu,sankalpathaiyum thuranthu..thaazlntha  palankalin aasai kaamam..evan seyyum karmaa thaanztha palan koodaathu.. deha atma mayakkam ellaamal seyyanum..antha arivaazliyai ..yerikka patta paapam punyam..gjanam thaan neruppu..evan thaan panndithan enbaarkal..evanai suha thukkam anndaathu..naam seyyum karmaakalai gjana yoga perumaikalai ethuvey kodukkum..kattukku poey davasu pannuvar pola naamum aahalaam..pulankalai adaiki vida villai erunthaalum aasai ellaamal, avanathu kainkaryathukaaha pannanum..thaazlntha palankalin aasai vittu, atmavirkaha seyal pannanum enkiraan..arivu paapam punyam erikkum yenkiraan..deham veru atma veru yentru therinthu pannanum..

4-19..Ramanuja’s Commentary

..The person performing karma or actions accrues reactions by attachment to desires and hankering for rewards. This is delusion as desires are imagined and fantasised before enactment. Thus it is merely a false idea or wrong notion of the mind. The fantasising alluded to here consists of the mentality which erroneously identifies the atma or soul with prakriti or material nature along with the three gunas being the modes of goodness, passion and ignorance and mistakenly conceives of them as all being one principle. But to that person seeking moksa or liberation all acts regular and occasional performed by them and necessitated by bodily maintenance are not subject to reactions being devoid of desire. Further exemption is guaranteed as the aspirant for moksa is not living in a world of imagination or fantasy because such a person performs every action while being cognisant of the eternal atma. Whoever performs karma in this manner while meditating on the atma is one of spiritual intelligence situated in atma tattva or soul realisation and all reactions to a myriad of past actions have been eradicated by the fire of knowledge. Thus Lord Krishna is praising the person who performs prescribed Vedic activities in atma tattva as being highly laudable. This is in sharp contrast to the karmi or one who performs actions for fruitive rewards being forced to accept reactions.

4-20..Ramanuja’s Commentary

….Whoever has completely given up all desires and attachments to rewards for actions, who is also nitya-trypto or totally content immersed in the atma or soul, whoever is self satisfied never depending on anything from prakriti or material existence. Such a person although seen to be intently performing various prescribed actions, in reality performs inaction meaning no action that has any binding effect. Because although externally such a person might appear as if performing activities but internally that person is actually cultivating spiritual knowledge and meditating on the atma and thus exempt from any binding effect. Lord Krishna gives the spiritual intelligence aspect of actions is next.

4-11..Ramanuja’s Commentary..

..Not only in His unlimited avatar or incarnation forms in the Vedic pantheon such as Rama or Buddha is Lord Krishna approachable to those who seek refuge in Him as the saviour and maintainer of all creation; but He is also the saviour and maintainer of all those outside of the Vedic culture who seek refuge and redemption from any other religion or denomination as well. By whatever conception the righteous choose to seek god, Lord Krishna manifests Himself in that same manner so that He is always available for them to approach Him in the manner in which they have chosen. The word bhajamy literally means I give service to them. Here it means that the Supreme Lord is available to reciprocate with them. Although Lord Krishnas divine nature is such that even realised saints and yogis find His sublime nature transcendental to speech and even thought; yet for all those who are situated in righteousness even in other religions and denominations He manifests the way to receive their mode of worship maintaining their faith. This manifestation is not only apparent by their faith but also by their ability to reciprocate with Him by all their senses in as many variegated and diverse ways as they are capable of. Bringing now to a close the subject of avatars, the discourse on karma yoga or the performance of prescribed Vedic activities is resumed. Before presenting the jnana-yoga or cultivation of Vedic knowledge aspect of karma yoga or the performance of prescribed Vedic activities, Lord Krishna first explains how rare is the person who performs this type of karma yoga.

4-12..Ramanuja’s Commentary..For the most part persons who desire the material fruits of their actions never worship the Supreme Lord Krishna who is the super soul existing within all living beings and who is the ultimate recipient of all worship and offerings as confirmed in the previous verse. It is very rarely seen that the materialists are inclined to His worship. Instead they worship the demi-gods and other lesser entities. Why is this so? It is because by worshipping them the seekers of material possessions such as wealth, power and dominion find quick results in the fulfilment of their material desires. Manuse loke means in the mortal worlds. This includes all material worlds everywhere in creation. Such persons in these worlds oblivious to the true purpose of human existence due to a vast accumulation of sinful reactions that have not been exhausted from time immemorial. Desire immediate results for their actions causing them to get more and more reactions. Such people worship that which gives temporary material rewards and foolishly pursue transient material objectives even foolishly attempting to gain immortality in their corporeal physical body. Only such a rare being who fearful of samsara or transmigration from physical body to physical body in the endless cycle of birth and death, who aspires for moksa or liberation from the cycle of birth and death, only this rare being would engage themselves in karma yoga or the performance of prescribed Vedic activities as propitiation to the Supreme Lord Krishna. The next verse reveals how to release oneself from sin which obscures ones perception from realising the need to engage in karma yoga.

4-13..Ramanuja’s Commentary

..The entire material manifestation from Brahma down to a blade of grass has been divided by Lord Krishna into the four-fold divisions in accordance to their natural dispositions and qualities. For humans they are brahmin or the priestly class, kshatriya the royal warrior class, vaisya the farmer and trading class and sudra the servant class. This is in conformance with their material natures being in goodness, passion or nescience which subsequently qualifies them for the type of occupation they engage in their life. Creation implies all the universes where He sustains and maintains as well causing them to manifest and unmanifest. Although He is the origin of all these activities He should be known as not being the doer. This is because the wondrous activities to be found in creation although originated from Lord Krishna do not bind him as He is not the doer. The wonderful variety of creation from demigods, humans, animal etc. are beings created by the effects of their own karma or present reactions to previous actions either by merits or demerits. In as much as ones own activities determines their karma activating what reward or punishment one will receive; then this is totally determined by each individual themselves and thus Lord Krishna is no way answerable to the reactions living entities bring upon themselves by their actions. There is another reason Lord Krishna is not the doer as well and that is all the embodied being assuming various and diverse forms get endowed with limbs and senses to enjoy material objects being interested in the rewards of their actions. Consequently pursuing this they trap themselves in samsara or the cycle of birth and death in the material existence. It is all of their own doing and Lord Krishna is not responsible for the desires the living entities choose to pursue. In the Vedanta-Sutras which are aphorisms exegetic of the 108 Upanisads by Vedavyasa it states in II.III.XXXIV that: The Supreme Lord can never be reproached for what seems to be partiality and injustice seen as rewards and punishments because the results for all human beings are determined solely by their actions. In the act of manifesting the creation Lord Krishna is the original source but the instrumental cause is prakriti or material nature itself and the determining factor for all beings is that they come into their various existences as a result of their own karma. Except for the will from the original source of Lord Krishna no other cause is needed to manifest myriads of marvellous creations represented by unlimited and diverse variegated beings. This is because all embodied beings accept a form in accordance to the inherent primal force of their past karma.

4-14..Ramanuja’s Commentary

..Whosoever understands Lord Krishna as being the origin of all as well as being transcendental to all will cease to entangle themselves with desires and attachments to rewards which results in acquiring karma or reactions to actions which binds one to samsara or the cycle of birth and death. It is from past karmas that one is existing in their present lifetime position. Such a person possessing such knowledge and acting upon it appropriately as described in these verses will no longer be bound by karma.

4-15..Ramanuja’s Commentary

..Understanding Lord Krishna as delineated in the previous verses did the ancient seers and sages perform Vedic activities dedicated to Him and thus achieved moksa or liberation from material existence. He is encouraging Arjuna to perform karma yoga or prescribed Vedic activities as the ancients such as Visvavan and Manu performed it in knowledge of Him.

Think India

October 11, 2007

This book “Think India”-by Vinay Rai was very interesting.

“The twentieth century belonged to America..but the 21st belongs to India..India has everything it takes to be the leading economy in the world.”…Dr.Richard W.Oliver..author of The Boitech Age:the business of Biotech and How to profit from it..

Infosys Murthy borrowed 250$ from his wife in july 1981 ..and after 26 years  it has 67000 employees worldwide and revenues of over 2 billion$..TCS revenues are now over 5 billion$..there are some 200 R&D facilities in India..India is adding more cell phones than China–in 2005 alone 32 million hand sets were sold in India..

Recall The world is Flat by Friedman..IITs were like factory,churning out and exporting most gifted talent on the globe…India’s IT and out soursing segment grew at average rate of 42% over last two years..not only this but world-class manufacturing,design,real estate,retail, movies,..all these segments are growing in india..India’s legentary innovative ability and entrepreneurship acumen to the skil sets—software,uploading,outsoursing,off-shoring,supply-chaining,in-sourcing,and all the rest of the forces that flattened the world–are the reasons for the gravity -defying success of Indian IT industry…8.5 million bachelore degree holders along with 0.5 million engg graduates and 12000 Ph.ds from India are making this happen..

India’s advantage on high end value chain in manufacturing compared to China’s edge in low margin goods will drive India ahead as a global player…the day will come when mass-consumption products will be conceived in US, designed in India, manufactured in China sold globally and serviced by India and US jointly for the global market..recall 175,000 dubbawaalahs–mostly illiterare–colour coding system based on acronyms– in Bombay –humen chain in action-over 40 miles from home to office—undeterred by storms are train breakdowns–six sigma performance rating given by forbes magazine…

According to Jan-2007 edition of the Goldman Sachs BRICs(Brazil,Russia,India,and China) report,India will surpass the GDP of the US by 2050..fuelled by India’s youth.–by 2020 one half of the world population of people under age twenty-five will be in India.

Mark Twain..”India is the only millionaire-one land all desire to see, and having seen once by evan a glimpse,would not give that glimpse for all the rest of the globe combined”..

India is putting a million new cars on the road every year..

81% are Hindus..140 million muslims–the world second largest muslim population –the first is Indonesia–diversity in unity and unity in diversity…

The richest 40 people in India had a collective worth of over 61 billion $ in 2004 and now in 2007 only 36  people had 191 billion$..now over 300 million middle class Indians are here.

G.E. forcasts its business in India could be 3 billion $ in 2007..India is shopping for 120 fighter planes–lockheed martin and boeing are elbowing each other to get this multi billion % deal-the biggest of the century.

Indians send over 23 Billion% in 2007 back home.. this accounts for 3% of the country’s GDP…Pentium chip   invented by Vinod dahm..hot mail by Sabeer Bhatia..

Owners of restaurants along the highway in Punjab–faced with the need  to produce lussi quickly and in large quantities—-used home washing machine..pour yogurt,sugar,spices,salt and water and tap the outflow tube as exit pipe right into glasses ready for serving–example of effortless sync with the ebb abd flow of daily life–

Lawrence Summers,the former president of Harvard University, said during his feb 2006 visit to India that Harvard had made a “fundamental error of judgement”in not recognising India’s potential amd promise early enough..Harvard would correct soon by setting up a dedicated India Center with an initial funding of a billion dollars..

In April 2007,India’s GDP crossed the watershed trillion $ mark..interms of purchasing power parity, India became the world’s number three economic power..now it has matched chinese level of growth and it is predicted that it will overtake Japan and become the third bigest economy behind only America and China..

Indians were spending over 375billion$ on personal consumption annually-2005 figure..shopping malls..only 12 in 2000…grew to 150 in 2006 and 350 in 2007..the no of cars sold  in 1995 were 250,000…in 2006 this number rose to 1.1 million..during second half of 2006, India was adding seven million mobile subscribers every month..the estimate for 2007 is 250 million phones and five years later 500 million phones..Tata steel has bagged as the best steel company of the year  from the prestigeous American steel Institute for three successive years since 2003..McDonald  launched in 2001 has grown into 100 outlets and  in 2006 alone will be adding 100 more..separate veg kitchens and workers with green aprons cannot cross over unless they have a shower..

Even Einstein said”we owe a lot to the Indians, who taught us how to count,without which no worthwhile scientific discovery could have been made”..the rustless wonder–a single cast piece of iron 32ft high weighing 6 tons, made of 98% iron ..over centuries

A majority of US firms with an India presense are reporting double digit growth today…Ge,Bank of America,motorola,reebok,IBM,etc..Coco-cola and Citibank have declared the country to be the fastest growing market globally..

Trade betwen India and Israel..202 million $ in 1992..now in 2005 2.5 billion$..India is the sixth largest energy consumer in the world–replacing France-and tipped to become fourth largest by 2010..consumption going up by 8% per year–only 32% needs are filled by our own resourses..it may drop to less than 10% by 2020..

In 2005-2006 India’s GDP is 796billion$.one third of .China;s 2.5 trilion..US is 12 trillon..five times that of china..China atracted more than 6.3billion$ fdi while India managed only one tenth..China accounts for 6% of global trade while India touches just 1%..litrrary rates in india just 60%..china 90%..infant martality rate–India 44 deaths per 1000 births while for china only 23..life expectancy india just 65 china is 73..But..China’s official statistics are not entirely to be trusted..India’s figures are understated due to 50 billion$ parellel economy..India’s fre market, democracy,free press,growing workforce english speaking ability,higher no of R&D centers,and open and free envirionment to replenish minds and souls are India’s advantage..

In 1850s British engineers were building rail system..local persons brought some and after 60 years these were the clue that led to the discovery of mohenjoDaro site in Indus Valley..2500years old..

medical tourism…heart surgery costs just 6,o00$ here compared to 30,000$ in US..bone marrow transplant costs just 25,000$ here ompared to 250,000$ in US.Mekensey report indicates that medical tourism will generate 1.5 billion$ by 2012..including yoga ,ayurveda etc..

one india wants the other hopes..one leads..the other follows..over 225 of the world’s poor live in India..still 22 million  new births per year..for the richest one fifth of the population the fertility rate is just 1.8..below the replacement level..but for the poorest one fifth, the rate is still 3.4..even now half  the weddings  in india involve a child under age of 18..wrong notion that more children mean more wage earners..with over a million new cars and five million two-wheelers added every year road developement is prime concern..

India’s intellectual capital is spreading like wave around the entire world..over 22 million Indian diaspora is making its presence felt in business, academia etc..Amoung the young Indian professionals the air of energy and excitement and the frantic pulse and pace of the affluent is mind-boggling..The Goldman Sachs analysis puts US in third place economocally by 2050 behind china and India..seems more logical when you recognise that the brightest 25% of Indian population out number the entire population of US…You can see Indians driven by fierce passion for life, for work, for creation,and are dreaming to bring out the best in them in a free and open environment..

18..He is “undu mada kazlitrin oodaatha thol valiyan”–having learned from five acharyas he can win over all kutharkavaathies,paashaandies and maayaavaadhies.

19..He has four vedas as legs for his cot and vedanthaas as his bed..His works-vedantha saaram,vedantha deepam,sri bhashyam, geethaa bashyam and gatyatrayam are the lights–so she calls”kuttu villakku eriya kottukkaal katil mel methentra pancha sayanathil”

20..He is like fire of knowledge to all those who come to argue with him and will remove all their ignorance.–“settraarkku veppam kodukkum vimalan”–

21..He changed even his guru like yadava prahasar and yagna moorthy-who later became -after surrendering to raamanujar-arulaala perumaal emberumaanaar–“maattraar unakku vali tholainthu un vasarkann aatraathu vanthu adi panniyumaapole”-enkiraal

22..He explains slowly and by hius kadatcham makes us understand Him–so she says”senkan chiruchirithey en meyl villiyaavo”

23..He is the great lion-“seeriya singam”..Sleeping lion-gjana mandabam in thirunarayana puram…awakened lion in srirengam-bhoga mandabam and energetic lion in pushpa mandabam-trumalai..he remains with great charm along with 74 simhathipathies..
