<< Chapter 5 verse 24


labhante brahma-nirvāṇam
ṛṣayaḥ kṣīṇa-kalmaṣāḥ
chinna-dvaidhā yatātmānaḥ
sarva-bhūta-hite ratāḥ

‘Those, the Seers, who have cut the ‘pairs’[1. The sense-contacts with external phenomena is sensations which are the sense-with-mind-contacts, ‘cold-heat’, etc., and then follow the reactions, pleasures and pains.] asunder, have set their minds on ātma, who delight in the well-being of all beings, –assoiled of taints— obtain brahma-nirvāṇa.’

Cḥinna-dvaidhāḥ=Those who are rid of the ‘pairs’: ‘cold-heats’ and so on.

Yat-ātmānaḥ=Those who have tutored their minds into ātma.

Sarva-bhūta-hite ratāḥ=Those who ever wish for all other creatures, the happiness or good they would have for themselves.

Rishis are the intent Seers of ātma. Those who are of this description get rid of all the impurities that are hostile to the realization of ātma, and then obtain brahma-nirvāṇa (ātma-bliss).

That brahma (ātma) is very accessible (i.e., most easily reached) is now explained:—
