Full meaning:

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. 


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. veena kodali
