Geetha Saram 16-13 to 16-17..

May 31, 2009

..sloham 16-13..Pushkarani-padma sarovaram-Thaayar came from 1000 pettalled lotus flower..So she is caledSri Padmavathi thaayar..sukla panchami-utharada nadchathrathil thiru avatharam..Sri Thayar graces processions on various vahanams like Sesha, Karpaka Vruksha, Swan [Hamsa], Lion, Garuda, Elephant, Ther [தேர் chariot], Horse, etc. On the last day, Panchami, from Tirumala, the Lord sends Panchami Theertha padi [flowers, Tulasi, parivattam, prasada, etc.]Thayar thirumanjanam kandu arullukiraal.. sudarsana alwar from vishvak senar sannithi  theertha vari kandu aruluhiraar..

idam adya mayā labdham imaṃ prāpsye manoratham
idam astīdam api me bhaviṣyati punar dhanam .

.Idam = all these [their consorts, children, properties,etc.], adya = at present, maya = by me [Asura quality person], labdham = have been acquired. Asura quality persons feel that by their own efforts they obtained all their children, properties, etc. Imam = [in addition] those, manoratham = planned [to acquire more properties, etc.], prapsye = will be attained [by their own efforts]. They think that all acquired and to be acquired were by their own efforts only. Idam dhanam asti = these wealth are, idam api = and those [wealth, planned], bhavisyati = which are going to be possessed, puna = again [by their own efforts only].

Ramanuja’s Commentary for sloha 16-13.. Lord Krishna uses the word idam meaning this. The idam He is talking about refers to possessions such as wealth, property, family, etc. The demoniac mentality is that all my possessions have been acquired by me alone, by my own efforts and exertions. They believe there is no other power or subtle unseen cause involved. The word manoratham means desirable object and whatever is desirable the demoniac feel it is their right to enjoy regardless of morality. The wealth that they gain by any means lawful or unlawful, or by cheating and stealing they see as moral and rightful as it was gained by their own brain and brawn over others brain and brawn. The demoniac follow the idea that might is right and do not believe in any subjective force or higher power. They forcefully take whatever they desire and are totally unconcerned of any consequences, oblivious to even the possibility that a god or supreme force sanctioning their endeavours could exist. The demoniac feel that they are so powerful that they themselves are gods because they can destroy their enemies as a whim and consider everyone except themselves to be of unimportance.

 

 The demoniac think like the following examples illustrate. I am the most powerful. I was born into a dynasty of aristocracy and wealth. Who else in this world is equal to me? Who else by dint of their exertions have acquired every pleasure there is to enjoy and secured so much happiness and stability? I will eat, drink and be merry, enjoying sense gratification to the maximum without restraint. There is no need for me to believe in any god or supreme power; but anyway I will perform some pseudo rituals and imitate some pious activities by ostentatious donations for charity to gain renown so others will think that I am also a great religious personality as well. This is how the demoniac think.

 

 The demoniac see themselves as the enjoyers, the manipulators and the controllers, The demoniac believe that they are all powerful, independent, masters of their own destines and independent of any supreme and unseen power; but so deluded are they that they completely ignore the reality that death will come and indiscriminately abduct them from all their possessions. This is mysteriously completely imperceptible to them.

 

.sloham 16-14..this concept of Dwayam in these Two Tiruvaimozhis mentioned. They are ‘Ozhivil kalamellam udanai manni [ஒழிவில் காலமெல்லாம் உடனாய் மன்னி]’ in 3.3 and ‘Ulagamunda peru vaaya [உலகமுண்ட பெருவாயா]’ in 6.10..both are for Thiruvenkadam udaiyaanukku..athanaal thaan Azvar Thirunakariyil yella pakkamum thiru venkadathaan sannithi unndu..ஆழ்வார் தீர்த்தம் thirumalai adivarathil unndu..

asau mayā hataḥ śatrur haniṣye cāparān api
īśvaro.aham ahaṃ bhogī siddhohaṃ balavān sukhī 16.14

 Asau satru = this eveil enemy, hata = was destroyed, maya = by me [Asura quality person].Hanisye ca aparan api = and, even the future enemies [would be killed by their own efforts..Charuvaka [sweet words] or Lokayada [only perceptibles, are accepted type of people..Isvara aham = I [Asura quality person says] am isvara or leader, aham bhogi = I [Asura quality person] enjoy…Siddhoham = I [ Asura quality person] am the attainment of Gyana and other superior levels, balavan = [Asura quality person himself is] mighty, sukhi = enjoy comforts [of family, property and money..

.sloham 16-15..

āḍhyobhijanavān asmi konyosti sadṛśo mayā
yakṣye dāsyāmi modiṣya ity ajñānavimohitāḥ

..sloham 16-16..The Lord arrived from Sri Vaikuntam, and is representing the Lord there, as Sri Srinivasa in Tirumala. Similarly, representing Sri Ksheerabdi Natha in Tirupparkadal [Milk Ocean], He is Sri Govindaraja, reclining at Tirupati. ‘ Sri Vaikunta virastaya swami pushkarini thate, ramaya ramamaanaya venkatesaya mangalam’ – is the mangala sloka of Lord Sri Venkatesa. ‘Esha narayana sriman ksheerarnavaniketana: Naga paryanka mudristya chapato maturam purim’. Thus the Lord at Sri Vaikuntam is at Ksheerabdi [Milk Ocean] and also here as Sri Govindaraja..ஸ்ரீ புண்டரீகவல்லி தாயார் sannithi..Sri partha sarathy mudalil eruntha divya desam.. kalyana venkatesa perumaal sannithiyum undu..

anekacittavibhrāntā mohajālasamāvṛtāḥ
prasaktāḥ kāmabhogeṣu patanti narakeśucau Aneka = many, citta = thoughts, vibhranta = [as a result] pushed into.moha = delusions, jala samavrta = surrounded or immersed.Prasakta = devoted in, kamabhogesu = cheap and illegal enjoyments, asucau = in flthy and frightening, narake = hell, patanti = [they] fall into..

Ramanuja’s Commentary for sloha 16-16..the demoniac completely controlled by maya the imperceptible bewilderment of illusion delude themselves by thinking that they are capable of accomplishing anything merely by their own brains and might. The demoniac think they are independent and not dependent upon any Supreme Being even if it does at all exist. In this way they are full of anxiety which tempestuously buffets them about by foolish, greedy thoughts such as this is mine, that to will soon be mine, I want this, I want that, this I shall do and that I will also do, etc., etc. In this way by their very own minds they are caught in the web of illusion and pursuing their lust for sense gratification they are totally bereft of sound judgement, discrimination and moral conduct. Lord Krishna confirms that beyond material nature, unseen and unperceived, death is waiting very patiently for the allotted time to snatch them away from all they covet and force them to suffer their karma or reactions to their unrighteous sinful actions in the darkest of hells. 

..sloham 16-17..Sri ramanuja swami..வெள்ளை சாத்துப்படி உத்சவம் -6th naal nadakkum..எப்பொழுதும் யதிராஜர் வடிவழகு என் இதயத்தில் உள்ளதால் இல்லை எனக்கெதிரில்லை எனக்கெதிரில்லை எனக்கெதிரே..

ātmasaṃbhāvitāḥ stabdhā dhanamānamadānvitāḥ
yajante nāmayajñais te dambhenāvidhipūrvakam 16.17

Yajante = [these Asura quality persons also] perform Yagnas.Avidhi purvakam = [but they perform] not in accordance with rules. They perform to attain inferior results. Nama = for name, dambhena = for cheap publicity…Atma sambhavita = self praising. These people praise themselves to publicize. Stabhda = haughtiness…Dhanam = wealth, manam = abhimanam or pride of having born in a particular family or society or beauty,etc. Madanvita = [due to these undesirable qualities, they] move about with haughtiness. Swami Tiruvarangattamudanar says that Swami Koorattalwan overcame all the pride due to education, wealth and family. In Tamil it is called mukkurumbu [முக்குறும்பு]..

Ramanuja’s Commentary for sloha 16-17.. Lord Krishna describes telltale signs and characteristics of the demoniac.Sambhavitah means conceited, self aggrandizing. The demoniac flatter themselves.Stabdah means impertinent, pompous. Thinking they are the better than all others.Dhana-mana-mada-anvizah means inebriated and puffed up by wealth, bloodlines, etc.Avidhi-purvakam means the demoniac do pseudo rituals condemned by the Vedas.

Geetha Saram 16-8 to 16-12..

May 23, 2009

..sloham 16-8..Udhaya nangai-Azvaar’s mother pirantha divya desam ..Lakshmi theertha pushkarani..also called soma theertham..Sri Rama/Sita Lakshmanar sannithiyum undu..Thiru vaaz Marban  here in Thiruvan parisaram/thiru pathi saram.. only Eruntha divya desam in malayala desam..Indra Kalyana Vimanam..asatyam apratiṣṭhaṃ te jagad āhur anīśvaram
aparasparasaṃbhūtaṃ kim anyat kāmahaitukam 16.8

 Asatyam = abrahmatmakam – that is this Universe does not have Brahmam or the Lord as its atman since satyam means Brahmam [from satyam, gyanam, anantam brahmam], asatyam means not accepting Brahmam‘s role as atman of the Universe. Satyam also means everlasting.
Apratishtam = not supported [by Brahmam]. That is they [Asuras] say that the Universe is self sustaining and self supporting.
Anisvaram = not commanded by Iswara or the Lord.Te = they [Asuras], ahu = tell, jagad = about Universe!Aparaspara = without mutual, sambhutam = intercourse or union, kim anyat = what else could be?..Kamahaitukam = [they further say that] lust is the reason..Sat indicates atman. Ti indicates Achit or materials without intellect. Yam means commanding. That is He who commands atman and achit, is Satyam or the Lord..

Ramanuja’s Commentary for sloham 16-8..The demoniac declare that creation is asatyam or unreal and that creation is not an effect of anything. The demoniac state that creation exists without any aparaspara or cause. The demoniac propund that creation is without apratistham or any support, maintenance or foundation. The demoniac postulate that creation is anisvaram without any controller and is godless. But the fact exists that after manifesting creation the Supreme Lord places it on the hood of Sesa Naga as confirmed in the Visnu Purana II.V.XXVII beginning ten eyam naga varenya sirasa vidhirita mahi stating: Creation rests on the hood of Sesa Naga, which in turn supports the chain of spheres in the material worlds which is the abode of demigods, humans, beasts and demons.The demoniac have also concocted theories which they strictly adhere and propagate. They hypothecate that creation is not under the auspices of or created by the Supreme Lord Krishna, who is eternal, infallible, omnipotent, omniscient, omni-present and who is the Supreme controller of everything. Their only evidence is that everywhere they look they see male and females of such and such species cohabitating to continue the preservation of that species and hence they have concluded that sexual passion alone is the cause that propels mutual union between male and female and evolves creation.

 

..sloham 16-9..Sri kamala valli naachiyaar never leaves His marbaham..Kulesekara Raja kattiya Dvajasthambam..Perumaal 9 ‘ tall eruntha Thiru kolam..sevan rishis are also in garba graham..Hanumaan/Vibeeshanan /Ahasthiyar and Kulesekarar also in Sri Ramar sannithi..Ahasthiyar Hanumanukku Ramayanam sonnaaraan enghu..8-3  pathihathil oru paasurathil-வருவார் செல்வார்-pilgrims coming and going fom here are not carrying any message for him..என் திரு வாழ் மார்பன்..yenkiraar .. yen thiru yentrum yen thiru vaaz maarban yentrum kollalaam..sangu chakaram thookka oruvan erukiraan yenkiraar.. Lakshmanan pola kainkaryam panna aasai evarukku..etāṃ dṛṣṭim avaṣṭabhya naṣṭātmānolpabuddhayaḥ
prabhavanty ugrakarmāṇasubha  jagatohitāḥ 16.9

Etam = thus these persons’, drstim = view.  Avastabhya = cling violently [to this view], nasta atmana = lose [sight of] soul, alpabuddhaya = and are very obscure minded. ugra karmana = do violent actions, that is, they would perform deceit, for their own welfare. Ksayaya = destruction of, jagata = world, prabhavanty = take efforts.asubha = lack auspiciousness..

Ramanuja’s Commentary for sloham 16-9..Continuing further Lord Krishna gives some precise insights to the demoniac mentality. 1) Avastabhya means indiscriminately adopting erroneously as in the verse before. 2) Nasta-atmanah means devoid of any contact with their immortal soul. 3) Alpa-buddhaya means limited intellect due to being incognizant of the cognizant. 4) Ugra-karmanah means vile, heinous, horrendous activities destructive to all.Such creatures are demoniac and are a parasitic, virulent virus destabilising all creation.

kāmam āśritya duṣpūraṃ dambhamānamadānvitāḥ
mohād gṛhītvāsadgrāhān pravartanteśucivratāḥ 16.10

 Duspuram = unsatisfied.Kamam = desire that can never be satisfied, asritya = attains.  dambha = cheap publicity, mana = durabhimana or unlawful attachments, madam = vulgar pride [of education, wealth, beauty and family].Asadgrahan = illegal wealth, grhitva = acquired, mohad = delusion, asuci vrata = following fasting against Shastras…Pravartante = live, with such wrong beliefs and actions..

Ramanuja’s Commentary for sloha 16-10..Lord Krishna explains that the demoniac are propelled by lust and greed that is insatiable and constantly seeking to be fulfilled in the hope of being gratified. The demoniac endeavour to procure such fulfilment is mohad or deluded illusion and through gross improprieties they forcefully misappropriate and enjoy things which are not lawfully theirs. The compound word asuci-vratah means the demoniac fiendishly execute devilish rituals such as blood sacrifices and the killing of animals and even humans in following their diabolical rites. Specifically engaging in forbidden acts prohibited by the Vedic scriptures which oppose all sense of righteousness, morality and decency. By resorting to duplicity, hypocrisy, sorcery, evil magic, and surreptitious deception the demoniac nature is able to prevail and flourish.

.cintām aparimeyāṃ ca pralayāntām upāśritāḥ

Aparimeyam =unlimited, pralayantam = even upto pralayam time, cintam = thinking..kama = sensual pleasures or lust, upabhogam = experiencing [these pleasures], parama = devoted fully, etavad = with the concept [that there was nothing superior to experiencing Kama].Niscita = [they are ] certain [about their wrong concept]…Azvaar calls Him as Chinthaamani..eravaiyum pahalaaha kaatti konndu eruppaan..

Ramanuja’s Commentary for sloha 16-11..Although death is waiting patiently for their demise at any moment; to carry them off to hellish worlds of great suffering; Lord Krishna explains that the demoniac are so involved in the deception of their material manipulations for planetary power and control of planetary wealth which they amass to the maximum that they become oblivious to the existence of a higher reality. The demoniac are deceived in the vastness of their own schemes and undertakings which consumes all of their time as they are constantly endeavouring to keep their power intact. Simultaneously the demoniac are pursuing their lusts for sense gratification with full power imagining that it constitutes the apex of success as the highest ambition of all existence. The demoniac are so completely deluded that they believe that enjoying the objects of the senses is the final goal of all hopes and dreams with no conception more advanced than this. In this way they deceive and fully shackle themselves in bondage by the illusion of their own hopes and expectations which keeps them bound inexorably in perdition.

śāpāśaśatair baddhāḥ kāmakrodhaparāyaṇāḥ

Anyayena = illegally or unlawfully, samcayan = acquire, artha = wealth, ihante = [these persons] are interested.Satair = with hundreds of, asa = desires, pasa = attachment, baddha = well bonded [in samsaram], parayana = well involved in, kama = lust, krodha = anger..kama bhogartham = [just] enjoying worldly pleasures..If we surrender, our sins will be dissolved, which will divert our interest from Kama. This will enable passion and attachments to be cut off. Then, asura quality would disappear. This will make sattva and divine qualities to grow. Ultimately, we reach Moksham..

Bharata = Arjuna [of Bharata dynasty], iti = thus, guhya tamam = most important secret.Sastram = science or branch of knowledge, idam = this way, maya = by Me [Sri Krishna], uktam = explained..Anagha = blemishless [Arjuna]…Etat buddhva = thus learnt [Purushottama vidya], buddhiman syat = [one] becomes great scholar, krtakrtyas ca = and accomplishes [all those to be] accomplished..Vedas shastram param naasti na daivam kesavat param..In Vishnu Purana, sage Parashara tells, ‘ tat karma ennabhandhaya sa vidya ya vimokshaye‘ – that is good action [karma] which releases from bondage [of samsaram], that is learning which shows us the path for liberation [Moksham..

..Earlier we saw that a woman was following Ekadasi fasting and the Lord killed the demon Tholakasura. To commemmorate that incident a Ten day festival is organized here. Ninth [Palli vettai பள்ளி வேட்டை] and Tenth [Aarattu ஆராட்டு] day festivals are important. They are similar to Paarivettai [பாரிவேட்டை or ambu podudhal அம்பு போடுதல்] and Theerthavaari [தீர்த்தவாரி] in Tamilnadu temples! The Lord Sri Utsavar is taken on procession, riding an elephant and visits a nearby place. After a ceremonial hunting and other celebrations, the Lord returns to the temple. Next day, the Lord visits the nearby Pushkarini. In the previous day it is believed that the Lord washed Sudarsana discus, in this pushkarini. On Aarattu day, the Lord graces Thirumanjanam, to the accompaniment of various musical instruments. Then He returns back to the temple riding an elephant. This place is famous for Chendai melam [செண்டை மேளம்] also called Pancha vadyam [பஞ்ச வாத்தியம்], when special drums are beaten…ganda karnan mosham pettra divya desam.. durvaasarum thinam vanthu poojai seykiraaraam..Lord Sri Krishna gave this idol to His chariot driver Satyaki, at the end of Dwapara yug…Chapter 15, described Purushottama Vidya. Different from and much superior to Bhaddha jeevatman and Mukta jeevatman, the Lord is Purushottama..In sloka 15, the Lord told that He was inside heart of every living being and all Vedas described His glory only..entha 15th chaptar kettaaley mosham pettra kathaikall vundu..

..sloham 16-1..This Chapter describes Deva – Asura vibhgam . The Lord classifies some as Devas and others as Asuras! In Gitartha Sangraha, Swami Alavandar summarizes this Chapter 16:

dev¯asura vibh¯agokti p¯urvik¯a ´s¯astrava´syat¯a |
tattv¯anus.t.h¯ana vij˜n¯anasthemne s.od.a´sa ucyate || (20)

He says that these were told in Chapter 16: that to gain tatva gyana and practice well, such persons were Devas and others were Asuras. Like this the Lord made a classification. In the pasuram 5.9.9. kazhalvalai poorippa yam kandu [கழல் வளை பூரிப்ப யாம் கண்டு], Alwar, by worshipping the Lord with folded hands [கை கூப்பி], found the bangles got enlarged with happiness! Alwar is performing saranagati, and so he is raising folded hands to show ‘nama: . He says that the humming sound of bees in the garden in this place, is like or better than the music of flute and veena instruments! He is eagerly expecting the blessings of the Lord Sri Vallabha, Who is holding the rotating discus in His right hand! The auspicious quality, which the Lord exhibited here to Alwar is krupa [ கிருபை] or mercy! ‘Meliyilum semam kolvikkum krupai innagarile nityam [மெலியும் சே(க்ஷே)மம் கொள்விக்கும் கிருபை இந்நகரிலே நித்யம்!]abhayaṃ sattvasaṃśuddhir jñānayogavyavasthitiḥ
dānaṃ damaś ca yajñaś ca svādhyāyas tapa ārjavam 16.1

These qualities are going to be continued in the First Three slokas. Abhayam = fearless, sattvasamsuddhi = purity of mind [because of increased] sattva quality [and decreased rajas and tamas qualities], jnana yoga vyavathithi = thoughts about atman [necessary for performing Karma yoga, Gyana yoga and Bhakti yoga], danam = donation [of rightfully earned wealth to deserving persons], damas ca = and control [of external sense organs and internal mind], yajna = performing Yagna [ pancha maha yagna – worshiping God, feeding guests, feeding ancestors, animals and birds, etc.], svadyaya = chanting [Vedas with enthusiasm], tapas = ritualistic [following Ekadasi fasting, etc., as prescribed in Vedas], arjavam = honest living [by mind, by words and by action]. These are the identities of Devas..

In chapter sixteen Lord Krishna describes explicitly, explaining seperately and in detail the divine properties, conduct and actions which are righteous in nature and conducive to divinity. Also he delineates the evil propensities and ill conduct which are unrighteous in nature and which determine the unrighteous and which are antagonistic to divinity. Thus this chapter is entitled: The Divine and the Demoniac Natures Defined..

..sloham 15-2.. Thiru anantha puram..Bil;va mangala swamikku 13 km periya sevai mudalil..avar vendiya padi 18 adiyaaha surukki sevai saathikiraar..ezu nilai gopuram..both Bilwa Mangala Swami and sage Diwakara inside the garbhaguha itself as also all the Devas created by lord Brahma. On one side we can see sage Diwakara and on the other we can see sage Kaundinya. Sri Bhudevi also can be seen..Sri Hari Lakshmi thaayaar..Nityasuris view the Lord from the First gate; lord Brahma and all Devas view from the middle gate; and, people like us worship Him from the Third gate. Thus Sri Ananta Padmanabha is regarding us, Brahma and Devas, and Nitysuris as equal. Nammalwar has praised the Lord of this Kshetram in ten pasurams [10.2], starting with sezhumidarayavellam kesava…[செழுமிடராயவேல்லாம் கேசவா!..

ahiṃsā satyam akrodhas tyāgaḥ śāntir apaiśunam
dayā bhūteṣv aloluptvaṃ mārdavaṃ hrīr acāpalam 16.2

Some more qualites, qualifying to become Devas, are listed. In all 26 qualities are listed in the Three slokas, by the Lord, as the qualities of Devas. Then He is to list the behaviour of Asuras.

  • Ahimsa = harming no living being. Behaving without any injury to any living being is Ahimsa.
  • Satyam = speaking truth, for the welfare of all living beings. ‘Satyam bhuta hitam proktam‘ – even uttering lie is satyam, if the lie would save a living being. So satyam is not just truth, but truth for the welfare of all.
  • Akrodha = Not getting angry. That is mind is not debased. Our reaction should not cause injury to others.
  • Tyaga = Sacrificing all, which do not contribute to our atman sakshatkaram or upliftment of atman. It is not merely sacrificing materials, but behaviours like satire and mockery speeches, gambling, etc.
  • Santi = Not allowing our senses to wander.Proper control of our senses.
  • Apaisunam = no slander or backbite talks. Sri Andal in Thiruppavai Second pasuram says ‘theekkuralai senrodhom [தீக்குறளை சென்றோதோம்]’. We should rerain from talking badly about Third persons.
  • Dhaya bhutesu = being merciful to all living beings. Unable to bear sufferings of others – showing mercy, not merely to our dear ones, but to everyone. Just like Sri Ananta Padmanabha Swamy shows compassion to all equally!
  • Aloluptvam = lola means playful. That is we should not desire in unwanted matters and keep the mind from loitering.
  • Mardavam = soft natured. It is not about soft body, but being soft to move with by others.
  • Hri = Shyfulness. One should be shy to violate any act of Shastras.
  • Acapalam = Not greedy for materials. If a favourite dish is kept in front of us, we should control and avoid desire to taste or avoid chapalam! We should control ourselves from being downgraded.

Vimanam is Vedalaya vimanam. Pushkarini is Shanka Pushkarini.This temple was reconsecrated by Nakula of Pandavas. Earlier we had seen temples reconsecrated by Yudhishtra [Thiruchitraru Thiruchengunnur திருச்சிற்றாறு திருச்செங்குன்னூர்], Bhima [Thiruppuliyur திருப் புலியூர்] and Arjuna [Thiruvaranvilai திருவாறன்விளை]. Nakula and Sahadeva were born to Madri, second wife of Pandu and are the youngest of Pancha Pandavas. One reason attributed to the name of this place is that the name Thiru Pandavanur [திரு பாண்டவநூர்] got transformed to Thirvanvandur! Another interpreattion is that when Nakula came here and enquired the name of this place, he was told by the locals that Thiruvan [திருவன்], meaning the Lord, undu [உண்டு], meaning existed! So the place got the name Thiruvan undu oor [திருவன் உண்டு ஊர்], which in due course became Thiruvanvandur!Tha Lord is responsible for proper digestion of food in living beings and proper distribution of energy derived from digestion! The food we eat is classified into Four types, depending on how we consume:
1. Swallowing. Like rice balls in our daily food.
2, Biting and chewing. Hard snacks like murukku [முறுக்கு].
3. Licking. Like pasty honey or payasam or lehiyam [லேகியம்].
4. Drinking. Like water and sharbet.
Whatever be the type, all of them have to be

ahaṃ vaiśvānaro bhūtvā prāṇināṃ deham āśritaḥ
prāṇāpānasamāyuktaḥ pacāmy annaṃ caturvidham 15.14

Pacamy = I [Sri Krishna] [get the food] digest, chaturvidham = the Four types of, annam = food. Pacamy means, normally, cooking. But here it means digesting. Aham = I [Sri Krishna], vaisvanaro = [normally it means god of Fire or Agnidev, but here it is] jataragni or the fire responsible for digestion. It is believed that in the deep ocean there is a fire called vatavagni [வடவாக்னி ] to maintain proper temperature of the ocean and is believed to have face of a horse! Similarly, in our bodies, as also in all living beings, there is a fire controlling and maintaining temperature. Praninam bhutva = in all living beings, deham asrita = in bodies [of the living beings], prana apana samayukta = with the air prana and apana..prana,apana,vyana,udhana,samana are the five types of air..

Ramanuja’s Commentary-for sloha 15-14..Lord Krishna declares that He is vaisvanara the digestive fire which joins together with the vital breaths of prana or exhalation and apana or inhalation. Together they digest in the stomach the four kinds of food which are foods that are khadva or chewed, soshva or sucked, lehya or licked and peya or drank. In these last three verses Lord Krishna is specifying integral functions of the jivas or embodied beings and of the Earth that are manifestations of His opulent glories. The expressions that He becomes the light of the sun, moon and fire etc. are meant to indicate the predicated relationship that theses object have in regard to Him. That fact that such realtionships exist in reference to all things is substantiated in the next verse.

Ramanuja’s Commentary for sloha 15-15.. 

 

 

 

 

Lord Krishna’s manifestation of Himself as paramatma the Supreme Soul situated within the etheric heart of every jiva or embodied being next to His expansion of the atma or individual immortal soul. The heart is the exclusive, absolute center from where all consciousness radiates. It is also the factual center from where all impulses and frequencies originate both active and passive. The Brihadaranya Upanisad V.VI.I beginning manomayo ayam puruso states: One meditating should perceive the resplendent Supreme Lord the ruler and lord of all within the heart of the size of a grain of rice. The Chandogya Upanisad VIII.I beginning harih sum atha yadidamasmin states: Within the jiva or embodied being in the inner sanctorum of the heart abides the atma or immortal soul which is an infintesimal portion of paramatma. Hence from the Supreme Lord comes all memory remembered from past experience. All wisdom accruring from factual true perception and inference. Intuitive knowledge related exclusively to the authority of the Vedic scriptures and meditation which expands the consciousness. Contrarily also from the Supreme Lord comes the antithesis of the above which are loss of memory, speculative reasoning, erroneous hypothesis, conjectural suppositions and deprivation of consciousness.

 

The Supreme Lord is to be known by the exclusive authority of the Vedic scriptures. He is the atma within all jivas, the witness, the monitor, the inner guide. The terms found in the Vedas of demigod, humans, demons, etc. are alluding to the jivatma or individual immortal soul within the myriad of varieagated forms of embodied beings. The compound word vedanta-krt refers directly to Lord Krishna’s avatara or incarnation of Vedavyasa who compiled the Vedas and divided them into four divisions. It also denotes the performance of Vedic enjoined rituals. The antonym antah also means the end which infers the fruits, the results of such rituals. He is the sole bequeather of all the fruits promised in the Vedic scriptures. This was previously touched upon in chapter seven verses 21 and 22 where Lord krishna confirms that in whatever form one chooses to worship the Supreme Lord, He renders there faith firm and they obtain the wishes they yearned for from Him alone. He is also the supreme knower of the Vedic scriptures for they originated from Him to guide and teach jivas about Himself. Whosoever understands the Vedic scriptures otherwise then what has been instructed by Lord Krishna in Srimad Bhagavad-Gita factually has no knowledge of it at all. This is due to their understanding and comprehension being influenced by under faulty assumptions and erroneous suppositions. The Vedic scriptures must be understood exclusively in light of the comprehensive and full authority of the Bhagavad-Gita.

 

 

 

 

Ramanuja’s Commentary for sloha 15-18.. 

The reality of the Supreme Lord Krishna’s transcendence to both the ksarah or perishable which includes all jivas or embodied beings as well as aksarah or imperishable including all the atmas or immortal souls. He is celebrated and gloridied as Purusottama the Supreme Being. The word loke obviously means worlds but due to its proximity to vede meaning the Vedas it can refer to the smriti’s such as the Vishnu Purana V.XVII.XXXIII which states: Incarnations of Purusottama descending from Vishnu are without a beginning, middle or end. An example from sruti is the Chandogya Upanisad VIII.XII.III beginning: evamevaisa samprasado asma charirat samuthaya param states: Achieving liberation the spiritsoul attains a glorious effulgent form revelling in its position at the feet of the Supreme Being. So in conclusion loke vede can mean that the Supreme Lord celebrated as Purusottama is glorified in both sections of the Vedic scriptures known as sruti and smriti and it can mean that He is glorifeied in all the worlds.
