Chapter 18 —- Verse 78 (The last verse in Gita)

Yatra yog’esvarah krsno yatra partho dhanur-dharah Tatra srir vijayo bhutir dhruva nitir matir mama

My Translation

Yatra – Journey

Yog esvarah Krsno—- Union perfected (yog) by esvarah krsno

Yatra – Journey

Partho — Arjuna

Dhanur dharah —holding/wearing the bow (dhanur)  maintaining the path (dharah)

Tatra — There upon in that meeting (on the battlefield — implied)

Srir —- glories/good fortune

Vijayo — victory to the

Bhutir – human spirit

Dhruva –  its firm will/ resolve

Nitir —the moral principals [ Telugu — neetulu ]

Matir — of the mind 

mama  — belonging to us.

My Meaning:

Journey is perfected by esvarah krsno. Journey belongs to Arjuna’s who was holding the bow.  There upon in that meeting (battlefield) went on the glories/good fortune —– victory to the human spirit, firm will/resolve; the moral principals, of the mind belonging to us.

What does it say in the text by Tapasyananda?

Where ever there is Krishna, the lord of yoga, accompanied by Arjuna wielding the bow — there reign good fortune,victory, prosperity and sound policy. Such is my conviction.

 

 

About Iksvakave

I am on a quest to understand my religion --- Hinduism. I have decided to keep a log of my discoveries, and experiences and what I have come to learn in the process. I like to travel through people vicariously. To observe the working of the mind, body and spirit. And heart. The soul infact is what our bodies have and what we are ultimately or in the end! The pricelessness of the soul is a soul is only potentially divine. Our journey here is therefore to understand that divinity in our lives. The ideals of societies, language, culture religion, and spirituality, is what interests me. what we know and don't know and outside of our four walls, maybe the priceless truth of that journey here on earth also, our yoga to be learned and equally perfected in life. What this blog is about is the values of the mother tongue India. And the values and culture of India and my nationality America. Pricelessness of it one will come to know you see. The forehead, is the center of the Hindu conscious.
