Full meaning:

The wrong, the right thus (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 budhhi is not tamas, it is one’s mind’s ability to differentiate between right and wrong. 

 

The recap of my meaning. 

The wrong, the right thus (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. 

By a deed of exchange essentially talking about what we have to live up to.

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.
