<< Chapter 13 verse 2

Simple

tat kṣetraṁ yac ca yādṛk ca
yad-vikāri yataś ca yat
sa ca yo yat-prabhāvaś ca
tat samāsena me śṛṇu

‘Listen from Me briefly, what that Kshetra is, its purpose, its mutations, its origin, its nature; and what he (Kshetrajña) is, and his powers.’

That Kshetra: ‘(yat)’=what it is, means what its substantial nature is.

Yādṛik= what kind = what use or purpose it serves = to what is it a support or how it lends itself for service?

Yad-vikāri=The mutations or modifications or changes it undergoes.

Yataḥ=From whence, means whence it originates, or for whose use it is originated.

Yat=its nature or properties. And

What he is means what is Kshetrajña i.e., soul’s nature.

Yat prabhāvāḥ=his virtues or properties or powers.

Hear from Me a summary of all this.

>> Chapter 13 verse 4
