Gitarnava – Commentary On Bhagavad Gita By Dasopant

Gitarnava is a Marathi commentary on the Bhagavad Gita by Dasopant (1551-1615). Dasopant was a great devotee of Dattatreya in whose praise he wrote a number of Marathi literary works. Dasopant was an austere follower of the Vedanta School and composed scholarly works on Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita. Gitarnava was the first of his two commentaries on the Bhagavad Gita – a voluminous work, ocean-like, as the title indicates. Only one-third of Gitarnava is now available in print. Chapters I, II, XII, XIII and XVII have been published with 41,055 ovis (a Marathi metrical form of verse). The commentary is in Puranic style, elaborating all the outstanding tenets of the Vedanta School. Gitarnava was followed by another commentary. Gitarnava Gitartha Chandrika – equally voluminous in Marathi and Sanskrit. These two commentaries on the Bhagavad Gita explicating the Vedantic tenets on the lines of the great Shankaracharya are the landmarks in the author’s literary career.

Yogi Vemana Quotes

This is a small collection of Quotes of Vemana, the Telugu poet-philosopher. These teachings primarily focus on family life.

Presence of a virtuous person in the family makes it famous and great. It is like having a sandalwood tree in a big forest whereby the entire forest smells like sandalwood. What is the use of following the rituals and customs without inner purity? What is the use of making special dishes in unclean vessels? What use is the worship of Shiva without purity of mind and devotion? What good is it to bathe in water, to offer treasures and to pay obeisance to gods, when the mind is filled with impurity of hypocrisy. Bodies are transient, virtue is eternal, all the virtue we perform is alone the thing that cannot be ruined. These brutes of men though they see and hear cannot understand.
