Chapter 8

<< Chapter 8 verse 1

Simple

adhiyajñaḥ kathaṁ ko ’tra
dehe ’smin madhusūdana
prayāṇa-kāle ca kathaṁ
jñeyo ’si niyatātmabhiḥ

‘Who, Madhusūdana!, and how, is the Adhiyajña in this body ; and how art Thou known by the mind-fixt (bhaktas) at their departing time?’

What is, Tad-brahma, what is, Adhyātma and what is, Karma which those who, to effect liberation from death and dotage by resorting to Bhagavān, have to know; what Adhibūta and Adhidaiva are which fortune-seekers have to know; and what is That which is indicated by the term Adhiyajña, which all the three classes (of aspirants) have to know, and why is Adhiyajña so characterized?, and in what way art Thou to be known by all these mind-disciplined men (niyat-ātmabhiḥ) at time of their departure (death)?
