<< Chapter 14 verse 1

Simple

idaṁ jñānam upāśritya
mama sādharmyam āgatāḥ
sarge ’pi nopajāyante
pralaye na vyathanti ca

‘Those, embracing this wisdom, have attained to My state, are neither born at evolution nor suffer at dissolution.’

Wisdom is that which is going to be expounded in this Lecture.

Mama sādharmyam= My state or My estate, or status comparing With My (divine) status.

Born at evolution is to be subjected to the processes of evolution; similarly to be subjected to pains in the course of dissolution. But those who have obtained wisdom are subjected to neither.

In order to show how matter’s qualities come to be the cause of bondage, it is first declared how all existing beings, —resultants of the commingling of the elements of matter and souls howsoever small, as stated already:- “a thing, immobile or mobile, springs up into existence” etc., (Gi: XIII-26)— are so fashioned out by the Blessed Lord Himself.1
