We tend to assign one of three labels to a situation, a person or an outcome of a deed: good, bad or no label. Krishna refers to this third state and says (2.57) that a wise person is one who isn't filled with joy when coming across good nor does he hate bad and is always without attachment. This implies that the ๐™จ๐™ฉ๐™๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™๐™ฅ๐™ง๐™–๐™œ๐™ฃ๐™– (one with coherent intellect) drops labelling(2.50) and takes facts as facts without any extrapolation, which is the birthplace for polarities of pain and pleasure.

Quote From Bhagavad Gita


"We would incur no sin when we perform any karma (deed/action) if we were to treat sukh (pleasure) and dukh (pain); labh (gain) and nasht (losses); and jaya (victory) and apajaya (defeat) with equipoise." - Verse- 2.38

Glimpses

Aversion is also an attachment

We tend to assign one of three labels to a situation, a person or an outcome of a deed: good, bad or no label. Krishna refers to this third state and says (2.57) that a wise person is one who isn't filled with joy when coming across good nor does he hate bad and is always without attachment.

Balanced Decision making

We all make several decisions for ourselves, our family and society based on a variety of factors. Krishna exhorts us to take this decision making to the next level

Raag (attachment), Bhay(fear) and Krodh (anger)

Krishna says (2.56) that Sthithpragna is one who is neither excited by sukh(pleasure) nor agitated by dukh(pain), is free from raag(attachment), bhay(fear) and krodh(anger).

Sthithpragna (stoic) is internal phenomenon

Krishna says (2.54), in response to Arjun's query, sthithpragna (one with coherent intellect) is contented with self. Interestingly, Krishna didn't respond to the second part of Arjun's query as to how a sthithpragna speaks, sits and walks.

Contentment with the self

Lord Krishna reveals what is pure sankhya (awareness) from verse 2.11 to 2.53, which was completely new territory for Arjun.

What is ours and what is not

Krishna says (2.52) that when we cross moha-kalilam (darkness of delusion) using intellect, we become indifferent to what is being heard or will be heard."

Dropping sense of doership

Repetition is the key to mastery

Karna and Arjun were born to Kunti but ended up fighting for the opposite sides.

Karma Phal might not be what it seems

Krishna says that we have the right to do karma (action) but have no right over karma-phal (fruits of action).
