“The divine qualities are conducive to liberation,
whereas the demoniac qualities lead to bondage.”
In continuation to chapter 14, revelation of the supreme wisdom in the previous set, this set contains the in-depth explanation of chapters 15-18.
Fifteenth chapter titled Purushottama Prapti Yoga demystifies the purpose of Vedic knowledge with the help of an analogy of a tree which has its roots in the sky and branches on the ground and Vedas are its leaves. Gurumaa has mystically explained how the branches are going upwards and downwards, creating and covering this whole world. And it is only with the weapons of vairagya and vivek that the roots of this tree can be cut i.e. one can be freed from the delusion of this samsara. This is possible only with devotion and surrender to the Lord who is omniscient and omnipresent.
Sixteenth chapter titled Daivasura Sampada Vibhaga Yoga describes in detail the divine and demoniac natures, and how the divine qualities are conducive to liberation whereas the demoniac qualities lead to bondage. Gurumaa has also emphatically explained that the ones with the lowest qualities are always lost in the ocean of the material existence amongst the demoniac species. In the end, Gurumaa has also stated at length about the consequences of discarding the spiritual injunctions.
Seventeenth chapter titled Shraddhatraya Vibhaga Yoga begins where the previous chapter ended i.e. Arjuna inquires from Krishna about what happens to those who do not follow the principles laid down in the scriptures but do worship a certain deity. Explaining the answer as given by the Lord, Gurumaa has lucidly elucidated the fruits of the actions arising out of the dominance of a guna acquired by the person and this has been discussed in depth. In the end, Gurumaa has succinctly described the purpose of performing charity, penance or sacrifice in accordance with the scriptures.
Last chapter, the eighteenth chapter is the essence of all the chapters.
Now at this time Arjuna inquired from Krishna that he wanted to understand the essential purpose of tyaga and sanyas. While explaining this, Gurumaa has given a very detailed exposition on what Lord Krishna replied. Including the judgement of the Lord as to who is a tyagi and who is a sanyasi, this chapter also emphasises on the performance of one’s duties. Further it describes the threefold fruits of the action by the one not living a renounced life, the causes of actions, the three gunas and their dominance on the performance of the actions. This chapter declares as to whom this wisdom should never be revealed and explained, and what are the blessings bestowed upon the one who listens to this gyana with faith and is engaged in worship of the Lord with devotion. In the end, this chapter offers an in-depth understanding into how Arjuna was freed from his doubts and became ready to follow the instructions of the Lord.
