This practice of yoga, the path of yoga, that has been approved of by dignified persons, O leading Brahmin, has been well narrated to us.
O Brahmin! O excellent Sage! It behooves you to relate to us the respective peculiarities of Saamkhya and Yoga. O Sage! Conversant with virtue, everything is known to you!
Sattva creates gunas and the Kshetrajna presides over them. It is all but natural that Sattva creates these gunas. Just as the spider weaves its web, so also Sattva creates gunas.
Should the Vedic injunction be ‘Perform rites and renounce them’? Whither do they go by means of Vidya (learning), and what do they (the performers) attain to by means of holy rites?
O Sage! O excellent Brahmin! We are not satiated imbibing the verbal nectar coming out of the ocean of your mouth.
Now tell us the yoga which is an antidote to the contact with miseries. On understanding it, we shall come in unison with the unchanging Purushottama (the Eternal Supreme Soul).
After understanding the three types of suffering, O Brahmins, beginning with the Aadhyaatmika (the organic), a learned man realizes perfect knowledge and has Vairagya (detachment). He then attains to the ultimate re-absorption.
The Vyasa-Gita is contained Brahmapurana (Part III). The Brahmapurana belongs to the class of Hindu religious literature known as the Puranas. The word ‘Purana' in Sanskrit means ‘a narrative of ancient times'.
Then that best of Raghus who was the embodiment of all worldly bliss, having established the very sacred fame of the Ramayana, followed the path trodden by the royal sages of old.
The Rama-Gita is contained in chapter 5 of the Uttara-Kanda of the Adhyathma Ramayana forming part of the Brahmanda Purana.
