<< Chapter 4 verse 41


tasmād ajñāna-sambhūtaṁ
hṛt-sthaṁ jñānāsinātmanaḥ
chittvainaṁ saṁśayaṁ yogam
ātiṣṭhottiṣṭha bhārata

‘With the sword of wisdom, then, Bhārata1!, cleaving all this ignorance-born doubt settling in thy heart, arise, and practise (karma) yoga.’

With the sword of ātma-wisdom, therefore, as imparted by Me, sever all the long-standing ignorance-born doubts concerning ātma, harbouring in thy bosom, and take thyself to practising karma-yoga in the manner that I have inculcated.

To carry out My injunctions, then, arise, O Bhārata2!


Thus closes Discourse Four,

named Jñāna-Yoga, or the Path of Knowledge

With Śri Rāmānuja’s commentary thereon,

Between Śri Kṛishṇa and Arjuna,

In the Science of Yoga,

In the Divine knowledge of the Upanishads,

or the Chants of Bhagavān,

The Bhagavad Gītā.
