Difference=(antaram)=the distinctive characteristics of Kshetra (matter) and Kshetrajña (soul).
Wisdom-eye=(jñana-chakshush)=the eye of discrimination,
Bhūta-prakṛiti-moksha=matter as manifested in its differentiated aspects of diverse existences. This is bhūta-prakṛiti, (as distinguished from primordial or root-matter).
Moksha=deliverance=that which effects deliverance, viz; the means of such deliverance as stated in ‘Reverence’ (etc., Gi: XIII-7–ff).
Hence, those who comprehend (1) the distinction subsisting between matter (kshetra) and soul (kshetrajña) and (2) the means of effecting escape from the trammels of manifested corporeal existence —those means being the practice of such virtues as amānitvam (reverence) etc., already enumerated, (XIII-7 ff) —reach the param=the Transcendent, viz., the enfranchised ātma, or find ātma in its essential state of unhampered or infinitely expanded consciousness1 (intelligence).
OM TAT SAT
Thus closes the Thirteenth Discourse,
The Book of Matter-Spirit-Distinction
With Śri Rāmānuja’s Commentary thereon,
In the colloquy between Śri Kṛishṇa and Arjuna,
In the Science of Yoga,
In the Theosophy (Divine knowledge) of the Upanishads,
Or the Chants of Śrī Bhagavān,
The Bhagavad Gītā.
