The wrong doing, the right doing thus so (as a result of), forgive being surrounded by ignorance. The entire meaning given, is a deed of exchange also, for the intellect, along with partha from the ignorance that exits.
If I am doing this is our world real in the way we know it?
What does it say in Gita?
Intellect is the nature of Tamas, the ignorance? This intellect that is tamas is covered by darkness, understand the immoral as moral and reverses values. So when in darkness the moral and immoral and values are reversed? Is this is the same intellect that Indian people call buddhi? The budhi is not tamas, it is one’s mind’s ability to differentiate between right and wrong.
I have understood why partha was used here instead of Arjuna, because we are learning this along with partha or a comparison along those lines is made here.
adharmābhibhavāt kṛiṣṇa praduṣyanti kula-striyaḥ
strīṣu duṣṭāsu vārṣṇeya jāyate varṇa-saṅkaraḥ
adharmābhibhavāt – for the wrongdoing show now yourself
kṛiṣṇa – krishna
praduṣyanti – by appearing
Kula-striyaḥ – to the women of the caste system
strīṣu – the womanhood
duṣṭāsu – from being polluted or destroyed
vārṣṇeya – the noble or the chief eminent man of the same lineage
jāyate – to the glory of that worship
varṇa-saṅkaraḥ – the color of the doer of good deeds (blue)
For the wrongdoing show now yourself krishna by appearing to the women of the caste system; The womanhood from being polluted or destroyed, the noble chief eminent man of the same lineage, to the glory of that worship, the color of the doer of good deeds.
In fact, this happens in the story of Mahabharata and is true. Krishna appears infront of drupadi for the wrong being done to her when she worships him during this instance. I am however fascinated by the poet use of varna-sankarah and what else it could mean in terms of how it is used here in this verse and for what the term means overall. I am fascinated because Sankara is name of Shiva. I am neither a sanskrit poet or a scholar. I want to say if you know about this term enough one could probably write a mini-book.

This is what it says in Gita. What happened to the words jayate and varana Sankarah?
