<< Chapter 15 verse 4


nirmāna-mohā jita-saṅga-doṣā
adhyātma-nityā vinivṛtta-kāmāḥ
dvandvair vimuktāḥ sukha-duḥkha-saṁjñair
gacchanty amūḍhāḥ padam avyayaṁ tat

That enduring state, only those enlightened reach, who are rid of love for non-self;— those victors over the evils of attachment;— the soul-absorbed;— the weaned from lusts;— the freed from the ‘pairs’ of joys and griefs;—’

Attaining to Me as their Shelter or Saviour, they become rid of such illusions as the love of non-self (or non-soul).

The evils of attachment are those of attachment to Guṇa-impregnate enjoyments. They conquer this.

Adhyātma-nityāḥ: adhyātma is soul-knowledge; whoso are engrossed in that knowledge are the soul-absorbed.

Lust-weaned=Those from whom all other appetites save the one for soul alone, have departed.

And they become delivered from the ‘pairs of opposites’ characterized as joys and griefs.

Enlightened=Ripe in the wisdom discriminating between soul-nature and non-soul nature.

Avyayam padam=Enduring state: is the realization of the true nature of ātma, in its unbounded-intelligence-characterized state (or infinitely expanded consciousness).

To those who claim Me as their Saviour (or Protector), all the several stages of the aforesaid (spiritual) character forming are effected through My sole agency. Those states are easily traversed through till perfection (or the goal) is reached.
