श्रीमद् भगवद्गीता

मूल श्लोकः

अथ चैनं नित्यजातं नित्यं वा मन्यसे मृतम्।

तथापि त्वं महाबाहो नैवं शोचितुमर्हसि।।2.26।।

 

English Commentary By Swami Sivananda

2.26 अथ now? च and? एनम् this (Self)? नित्यजातम् constantly born? नित्यम् constantly? वा or? मन्यसे thinkest? मृतम् dead? तथापि even then? त्वम् thou? महाबाहो mightyarmed? न not? एवम् thus? शोचितुम् to grieve? अर्हसि (thou) oughtest.Commentary Lord Krishna here? for the sake of argument? takes up the popular supposition. Granting that the Self is again and again born whenever a body comes into being? and again and again dies whenever the body dies? O mightyarmed (O Arjuna of great valour and strength)? thou shouldst not grieve thus? because birth is inevitable to want is dead and death is inevitable to what is born. This is the inexorable or unrelenting Law of Nature.

Hindi Translation Of Sri Shankaracharya's Sanskrit Commentary By Sri Harikrishnadas Goenka

।।2.26।।औपचारिक रूपसे आत्माकी अनित्यता स्वीकार करके यह कहते हैं

अथ च ये दोनों अव्यय औपचारिक स्वीकृतिके बोधक हैं।
यदि तू इस आत्माको सदा जन्मनेवाला अर्थात् लोकप्रसिद्धिके अनुसार अनेक शरीरोंकी प्रत्येक उत्पत्तिके

साथसाथ उत्पन्न हुआ माने तथा उनके प्रत्येक विनाशके साथसाथ सदा नष्ट हुआ माने।
तो भी अर्थात् ऐसे नित्य जन्मने और नित्य मरनेवाले आत्माके निमित्त भी हे महाबाहो तुझे इस प्रकार शोक करना उचित नहीं है क्योंकि जन्मनेवालेका मरण और मरनेवालेका जन्म यह दोनों अवश्य ही होनेवाले हैं।



English Translation By Swami Adidevananda

2.26 Or if you hold this self as being constantly born and as constantly dying, even then, O mighty-armed one, it does not become you to feel grief.

English Translation By Swami Sivananda

2.26 But even if thou thinkest of It as being constantly born and constantly dying, even then, O mighty-armed, thou shouldst not grieve.

English Translation By Swami Gambirananda

2.26 On the other hand, if you think this One is born continually or dies constantly, even then, O mighty-armed one, you ought not to grieve thus.
