Chapter 18

<< Chapter 18 Verse 17


jñānaṁ jñeyaṁ parijñātā
tri-vidhā karma-codanā
karaṇaṁ karma karteti
tri-vidhaḥ karma-saṅgrahaḥ

‘Knowledge, Knowable, Knower: this Triple
constitutes the motive to act; the Means, the Act, the Actor: this Triple constitutes the factors of act.’

Jñānam = Knowledge of the act to be done.

Jñeyam = Knowable is the act itself which is to be known and done.

Parijñāta = Knower or he who knows the act.

These Three are requisites to impel one to undertake such acts as jyotishtoma etc.

Among these the jneyam or the act itself is comprised of the three elements:

Karaṇam = the means, such as money (and other materials) required to carry out an act.

Karma = the Acts such as Yāga etc.

Kartā = the Actor or performer of the work.

>> Chapter 18 Verse 19
