Chapter 4

<< Chapter 4 verse 37


na hi jñānena sadṛśaṁ
pavitram iha vidyate
tat svayaṁ yoga-saṁsiddhaḥ
kālenātmani vindati

‘No purifier, like wisdom, is there existing. He
who is (karma-)yoga-perfect realizes it in himself in time.’

Inasmuch as there exists here —in the universe—no other purer (or more sanctifying) thing than ātma-wisdom, it is destructive of all sin. By perfecting oneself, therefore, by easily practising karma-yoga (yoga-samsiddhaḥ), in the way taught, one realizes in himself, in due course of time, the ātma-nature.

The same is made (further) clearer.

>> Chapter 4 verse 39
