382) Whether I know what the first six chapters of Bhagavad-Gita explain! Taught by Srila Prabhupada!
—————– So here Krishna is speaking Bhagavad-Gita, mayy asakta-manah, about the yoga system. He has already concluded in the Sixth Chapter the yoga system.
In the first six chapters it is explained what is the constitutional position of the living entity. There are eighteen chapters in the Bhagavad-Gita. The first six chapters explain only the constitutional position of the living entities. And when it is understood… Just like when you understand your actual position, then your activities actually begin. If you do not know what is your actual position… Suppose in the office, if your post is not settled up what duty you have to execute, then you cannot do anything very nicely. Here is a typist, here is clerk, here is a peon, here is a this and that. So they are executing their work very nicely. So one has to understand what is the constitutional position of the living entity. So that is explained in the first six chapters. ————-
