<< Chapter 4 verse 8


janma karma ca me divyam
evaṁ yo vetti tattvataḥ
tyaktvā dehaṁ punar janma
naiti mām eti so ’rjuna

‘Whoso understandeth in their true nature, My
Divine Incarnations and Doings, he, Arjuna! doth not come to re-birth after quitting the body, but goeth to Me.’

Whoso, in verity, comprehends the divine, immaterial and unique nature of My Incarnations, and My Acts (connected therewith) which are solely designed for the benefit of those who seek Me as their Rest; and which are intended for the protection of the good (sādhu); —whoso understands the real nature of Incarnate-manifestations (viz; Vibhava[2. ] manifestation’, No. 3 from Para) —and Works thereof,— as different from the compulsory births which come to beings as a consequence of their past deeds (karma), arising from the union between pure ātmā (spirit) and the triple-natured impure prakṛiti(matter); —whoso knows the Incarnations to be of Him, Who is possessed of such Glorious Attributes, such as Lordship over all, Omniscience, Firm-will etc.,— such a man does not return to re-birth after departing from his present body. He reaches Me alone.

That is, by accurate discriminative knowledge which he may possess regarding My divine Avatāras and Divine Acts, one becomes rid of all sin which may stand as a barrier against his coming to Me.

In his present birth alone, he will gain Me, by placing implicit reliance on Me (in the aforesaid manner), by making himself exclusively dear to Me, by making Me the absorbing Occupation for all his thoughts.

The same (the superb godly character of these sādhus etc.,) is described:—
