4.7 Yada yada hi dharmasya







yada yada hi dharmasya

Where, where indeed there is dharma, that face, mouth of, righteous and just

Glanir bhavati bharata

that shining and glorious expression is that of bharata (India)

abhyuthanam adharmasya

rise to the occasion where there is adharma (injust and wrong)

tada atamanam srjamya aham

at that time in that form (atma) wearing the garland is I.


Where, where indeed there is dharma, that face, mouth of righteous and just that shinning glorious expression is that of bharata (India). Rise to the occasion where there is adharma (injust and wrong), at that time in that form wearing the garland is I.

Notes:The word asya according to the dictionary I was using is face, mouth of a person and that is what I used here to describe dharmasya.



The Last verse in Bhagavad Gita 18.78

The Last verse in Bhagavad Gita 18.78

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 way (dharah) [vidhi however is the path]

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.



The difference between Om and Aum




OM is —– The spirit of God, the sound, vibration of this universe that is the absolute truth.


What is Aum then?

AUM is a representation of the three Gods in three planes.


The representation of the three Gods:

A — Stands for Shiva — the past, the birth, rebirth and reincarnation.

U — Stands for Vishnu — the present, the time/space of our universe

M — Stands for Brahma — the future, the manifestation/creation of our universe Om.


The three planes of existence:

Bhur Bhuva Svah

Bhur — Earth —- Lord Shiva

Bhuva — In the sky — Lord Vishnu

Svah — In space — Bharm


Therefore, AUM represents the past, present and future.  If you say — the names of Shiva, Vishnu and Bhrama, they do sound true to their representation — past, present and future.

Bhagavat Gita 18.66

Bhagavat Gita 18.66


Sarva dharman —  The entire duty lies in

parityajya — you attempting to try

mam — us  —– (ourselves)

ekam — alone or “in solitude” (tel.)

saranam — to whom we surrender to or take shelter of  (God)

vraja — in this all pervasive land (unwelcome influence or physical effect) 

Link of Vraja

Shandilya Rishi said: Dear Parikshit and Vajranabha! I will tell you the secret of Vrajabhumi. Listen carefully. The meaning of the word “Vraja” is all-pervasive. According to ancient opinions, this land is named Vraja because it is all-pervasive. This land is an all-pervasive spiritual manifestation, situated beyond the three modes of material nature. Therefore this is called Vraja. This land is ever-blissful, effulgent, indestructible, and the abode of liberated souls.

There is more explanation on the link.

aham — I

tva — unto you

sarva–papebhyo — the entire fearful of sin

moksasyisyami — will deliver I you of

Ma —  us/our or mother?  (mother according to a Mahabharata video, and Sri Krishna’s words. He says go to your mother to be purified. 

sucah — happiness

Iksvakave Full Meaning:

Our entire duty lies in you attempting to try us/ourselves “alone” or in solitude (because it is in solitude we understand and process god). To whom we surrender to or take shelter in this all pervasive land (that has unwelcome physical influences and effects) (see the link on Vraja Bhumi). I, in you — I am in you, the entire fearful of sin will deliver I you of us or our happiness. 


Forward to 2:30 seconds to listen to the verse. 18.66!

If you scroll and go back you will see what he means by Nirmal.

Why is this the last message of Krishna and not 18.78?

yatra yog esvarah krsno
