TKG Namboodhiri
  3. 3. Gems of Bhagavad Gita CHAPTER 5 KARMASANYAASA YOGA THE YOGA OF ACTION & RENUNCIATION TKG Namboodhiri
  4. 4. Gems of Bhagavad Gita SANYAASAH KARMAYOGASCHA NIH SRE’YASA KARAAVUBHOW, THAYOSTHU KARMASANYAASAATH KARMAYOGO VISISHYATHE’. (5.2) Both renunciation & Karma Yoga (Yoga of Action) promote the supreme good. But of the two, Karma Yoga is superior to renunciation of work. TKG Namboodhiri
  5. 5. Gems of Bhagavad Gita JNEYAH SA NITHYASANYAASEE YO NA DWESHTY NA KAMKSHATHI, NIRDWANDO HI MAHAABAAHO SUKHAM BANDHAAL PRAMUCHYATHE’ (5.3) Arjuna, understand that one who does not desire anything or hates anything is a Renouncer. Such a person, free from all duality like pleasure/pain, heat/cold, good/bad, is easily liberated from worldly bondage. TKG Namboodhiri
  6. 6. Gems of Bhagavad Gita YATH SAAMKHYAIH PRAAPYATHE’ STHAANAM THAD YOGAIRAPI GAMYATHE’, E’KAM SAAMKHYAM CHA YOGAM CHA YAH PASYATHI SA PASYATHI. (5.5) The status won by the Saamkhyas, liberation, is attained by the Yogins (those who, without seeking fruits of works, perform them as offering to God, as a means to winning knowledge) also. Only he perceives , who perceives this identity of goal of both Saamkhya & Yoga. TKG Namboodhiri

With Yoga, the silent sage attains Brahman(knowledge of supreme reality) without much delay. TKG Namboodhiri
  8. 8. Gems of Bhagavad Gita BRAHMANYAADHAAYA KARMAANI SANGAM THYAKTHWAA KAROTHI YAH, LIPYATHE’ NA SA PAAPE’NA PADMAPATHRAMIVAAMBHASAA. (5.10) Reposing all work in Brahman, the Yogin operates without attachment; he is not stained by sin as a lotus leaf is not by water. TKG Namboodhiri
  9. 9. Gems of Bhagavad Gita YUKTHAH KARMAPHALAM THYAKTHWAA SAANTHIMAAPNOTHI NAISHTIKEEM, AYUKTHAH KAAMAKAARE’NA PHALE’ SAKTHO NIBADHYATHE’. (5.12).

(5.14) The Lord creates neither agency (does not compel anybody to work) nor objects (of such work), nor contact with the fruits of work. It is the nature of things (Maaya) that operates. TKG Namboodhiri
  11. 11. Gems of Bhagavad Gita NAADATHE’ KASYACHIT PAPAM NA CHAIVA SUKRUTHAM VIBHUH, AJNAANE’NAAVRITHAM JNAANAM THE’NA MUHYANTHI JANTHAVAH. (5. 15) The mighty Being accepts nobody’s sin (of bad deeds) or merit (like, worship, sacrifice, gifts, & oblations in the fire ). Knowledge is shrouded in ignorance, hence, living beings are deluded, (& think otherwise). TKG Namboodhiri
  12. 12. Gems of Bhagavad Gita YE’ HI SAMSPARSAJA BHOGA DUKHAYONAYA E’VA THE’, AADYANTHAVANTHAH KAUNTHE’YA NA THE’SHU RAMATHE’ BUDHAH. (5.22) Arjuna, sensual enjoyment born out of contacts with objects, indeed, leads to pain only. It has a beginning & an end. The sages do not delight in such enjoyments TKG Namboodhiri
  13. 13. Gems of Bhagavad Gita SAKNOTHEEHAIVA YAH SODHDHOOM PRAK SAREERA VIMOKSHANAAL, KAAMAKRODHODBHAVAM VE’GAM SA YUKTHAH SA SUKHEE NARAH. (5.23) The man who is strong enough to resist, in this life itself, the urge of lust & wrath, is integrated, & he remains happy. TKG Namboodhiri
  14. 14. Gems of Bhagavad Gita YO ANTHAH SUKHO ANTHARAARAAMASTHATHAANTHARJYOTHIRE’VA YAH, SA YOGEE BRAHMANIRVAANAM BRAHMABHOOTHO ADHIGACHCHATHI. (5.24) With joy within, sporting within, & likewise, with light within, the Yogin becomes Brahman & wins the peace of Brahman TKG Namboodhiri
  15. 15. Gems of Bhagavad Gita KAAMAKRODHAVIYUKTHAANAAM YATHEENAAM YATHACHE’THASAAM, ABHITHO BRAHMNIRVAANAM VARTHATHE’ VIDITHAATHMANAAM. (5.26) Both when they are alive & dead, the peace of Brahman exists for the self-restrained ascetics, who have known the self, & are free from lust & wrath. TKG Namboodhiri
