मूल श्लोकः

एषा ब्राह्मी स्थितिः पार्थ नैनां प्राप्य विमुह्यति।

स्थित्वाऽस्यामन्तकालेऽपि ब्रह्मनिर्वाणमृच्छति।।2.72।।


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

।।2.72।।( अब ) उस उपर्युक्त ज्ञाननिष्ठाकी स्तुति की जाती है

यह उपर्युक्त अवस्था ब्राह्मी यानी ब्रह्ममें होनेवाली स्थिति है अर्थात् सर्व कर्मोंका संन्यास करके केवल ब्रह्मरूपसे स्थित हो जाना है।
हे पार्थ इस स्थितिको पाकर मनुष्य फिर मोहित नहीं होता अर्थात् मोहको प्राप्त नहीं होता।
अन्तकालमें अन्तके वयमें भी इस उपर्युक्त ब्राह्मी स्थितिमें स्थित होकर मनुष्य ब्रह्ममें लीनतारूप मोक्षको लाभ करता है। फिर जो ब्रह्मचर्याश्रमसे ही संन्यास ग्रहण करके जीवनपर्यन्त ब्रह्ममें स्थित रहता है वह ब्रह्मनिर्वाणको प्राप्त होता है इसमें तो कहना ही क्या है।

English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary By Swami Adidevananda

2.72 This state of performing disinterested work which is preceded by the knowledge of the eternal self and which is characterised by firm wisdom, is the Brahmi-state, which secures the attainment of the Brahman (the self). After attaining such a state, he will not be deluded, i.e., he will not get again the mortal coil. Reaching this state even during the last years of life, he wins the blissful Brahman (the self) i.e., which is full of beatitude. The meaning is that he attains the self which is constituted of nothing but bliss. Thus in the second chapter, the Lord wanted to remove the delusion of Arjuna, who did not know the real nature of the self and also did not realize that the activity named 'war' (here an ordained duty) is a means for attaining the nature of Sankhya or the self. Arjuna was under the delusion that the body is itself the self, and dominated by that delusion, had retreated from battle. He was therefore taught the knowledge called 'Sankhya' or the understanding of the self, and Yoga or what is called the path of practical work without attachment. These together have as their objective the attainment of steady wisdom (Sthitaprajnata) This has been explained in the following verse by Sri Yamunacarya: Sankhya and Yoga, which comprehend within their scope the understanding of the eternal self and the practical way of disinterested action respectively, were imparted in order to remove Arjuna's delusion. Through them the state of firm wisdom can be reached.

2.72 O Partha, esa, this, the aforesaid; is brahmisthitih, the state of being established in Brahman, i.e. continuing (in life) in indentification with Brahman, after renouncing all actions. Na vimuhyati, one does not become deluded; prapya, after attaining ; enam, this Rcchati, one attains; brahma-nirvanam, identification with Brahman, Liberation; sthitva, by being established; asyam, in this, in the state of Brahman-hood as described; api, even; anta-kale, in the closing years of one's life. What need it be said that, one who remains established only in Brahman during the whole life, after having espoused monasticism even from the stage of celibacy, attains indetification with Brahman!
