<< Chapter 3 verse 35


arjuna uvāca
atha kena prayukto ’yaṁ
pāpaṁ carati pūruṣaḥ
anicchann api vārṣṇeya
balād iva niyojitaḥ

‘What is it then, Vārshṇeya[1. A patronymic of Kṛishṇa (vide Genealog: Tree at end of Lect: I.]! prompted by which one wallows in sin? as if forced into it against his will ?’

What is it, (Kṛishṇa!) that impels a person —dragged as it were by force, into the ways of evil,— who is desirous of embarking on the course of Jñāna-Yoga?
