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

।।4.39।।जिसके द्वारा निश्चय ही ज्ञानकी प्राप्ति हो जाती है वह उपाय बतलाया जाता है श्रद्धावान् श्रद्धालु मनुष्य ज्ञान प्राप्त किया करता है। श्रद्धालु होकर भी तो कोई मन्द प्रयत्नवाला हो सकता है इसलिये कहते हैं कि तत्पर अर्थात् ज्ञानप्राप्तिके गुरुशुश्रूषादि उपायोंमें जो अच्छी प्रकार लगा हुआ हो। श्रद्धावान् और तत्पर होकर भी कोई अजितेन्द्रिय हो सकता है इसलिये कहते हैं कि संयतेन्द्रिय भी होनाचाहिये। जिसकी इन्द्रियाँ वशमें की हुई हों यानी विषयोंसे निवृत्त कर ली गयी हों वह संयतेन्द्रिय कहलाता है। जो इस प्रकार श्रद्धावान् तत्पर और संयतेन्द्रिय भी होता है वह अवश्य ही ज्ञानको प्राप्त कर लेता है। जो दण्डवत्प्रणामादि उपाय हैं वे तो बाह्य हैं और कपटी मनुष्यद्वारा भी किये जा सकते हैं इसलिये वे ( ज्ञानरूप फल उत्पन्न करनेमें ) अनिश्चित भी हो सकते हैं। परंतु श्रद्धालुता आदि उपायोंमें कपट नहीं चल सकता इसलिये ये निश्चयरूपसे ज्ञानप्राप्तिके उपाय हैं। ज्ञानप्राप्तिसे क्या होगा सो ( उत्तरार्धमें ) कहते हैं ज्ञानको प्राप्त होकर मनुष्य मोक्षरूप परम शान्तिको यानी उपरामताको बहुत शीघ्रतत्काल ही प्राप्त हो जाता है। यथार्थ ज्ञानसे तुरंत ही मोक्ष हो जाता है यह सब शास्त्रों और युक्तियोंसे सिद्ध सुनिश्चित बात है।

English Commentary By Swami Sivananda

4.39 श्रद्धावान् the man of faith? लभते obtains? ज्ञानम् knowledge? तत्परः devoted? संयतेन्द्रियः who has subdued the senses? ज्ञानम् knowledge? लब्ध्वा having obtained? पराम् supreme? शान्तिम् to peace? अचिरेण at once? अधिगच्छति attains.Commentary He who is full of faith? who constantly serves his Guru and hears his teachings? who has subdued the senses surely gets the knowledge and ickly attains the supreme peace or salvation (Moksha). All the above three alifications are indispensable for an aspirant if he wants to attain to the supreme peace of the Eternal ickly. One alifiaction alone will not suffice. (Cf.X.10?11)

Hindi Translation By Swami Ramsukhdas

।।4.39।। जो जितेन्द्रिय तथा साधन-परायण है, ऐसा श्रद्धावान् मनुष्य ज्ञानको प्राप्त होता है और ज्ञानको प्राप्त होकर वह तत्काल परम शान्तिको प्राप्त हो जाता है।

Hindi Translation By Swami Tejomayananda

।।4.39।। श्रद्धावान्,  तत्पर और जितेन्द्रिय पुरुष ज्ञान प्राप्त करता है। ज्ञान को प्राप्त करके शीघ्र ही वह परम शान्ति को प्राप्त होता है।।
 

English Translation By Swami Adidevananda

4.39 He who has faith, who is intent on it, and who has mastered his senses, attains knowledge. Having attained knowledge, he goes soon to supreme peace.

English Translation By Swami Gambirananda

4.39 The man who has faith, is diligent and has control over the organs, attains Knowledge. Achieving Knowledge, one soon attains supreme Peace.

English Translation By Swami Sivananda

4.39 The man who is full of faith, who is devoted to it, and who has subdued the senses obtains (this) knowledge; and having obtained the knowledge he attains at once to the supreme peace.

English Translation Of Sri Shankaracharya's Sanskrit Commentary By Swami Gambirananda

4.39 Sraddhavan, the man who has faith; labhate, attains; jnanam, Knowledge. Even when one has faith, he may be indolent. Therefore the Lord says, tatparah, who is diligent, steadfast in the service of the teacher, etc., which are the means of attaining Knowledge. Even when one has faith and is diligent, one may not have control over the organs. Hence the Lord says, samyata-indriyah, who has control over the organs-he whose organs (indriyani) have been withdrawn (samyata) from objects. He who is such, who is full of faith, diligent, and has control over the organs, does surely attain Knowledge. However, prostrations etc., which are external, are not invariably fruitful, for there is scope for dissimulation faith etc. But this is not so in the case of one possessing faith etc. Hence they are the unfailing means of acquiring Knowledge. What, again, will result from gaining Knowledge? This is being answered: Labdhva, achieving; jnanam, Knowledge; adhigacchati, one attains; acirena, soon indeed; param, supreme; santim, Peace, supreme detachment called Liberation. That Liberation soon follows from full Knowledge is a fact well ascertained from all the scriptures and reasoning. One should not entertain any doubt in this matter. For doubt is the most vicious thing. Why? The answer is being stated:

4.39 See Comment under 4.40

English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary By Swami Adidevananda

4.39 After attaining knowledge through instruction in the manner described, he must have firm faith in it and the possibility of its development into ripe knowledge. He must be intent on it, i.e., his mind must be focussed thereupon. He must control his senses and keep them away from all their objects. Soon will he then reach the aforesaid state of maturity and obtain knowledge. Soon after attaining such kind of knowledge, he will reach supreme peace, i.e., he attains the supreme Nirvana (realisation of the self).

English Translation By By Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

4.39. He, who has faith, gains knowledge, if he is solely intending upon it and has his sense-organs well-controlled; having gained the knowledge, he attains, before long, the Peace Supreme.

English Translation by Shri Purohit Swami

4.39 He who is full of faith attains wisdom, and he too who can control his senses, having attained that wisdom, he shall ere long attain Supreme Peace.
