Bhagavad-Gita

I wish to know about prakrti , nature (1-8) , the purusa  (O) , and the field (1-8) and the knower of the field (9).

This body is called the field (1-8) and one who knows this body(1-8) is called the knower of the field (9).

  •        1 – 8      ……. the field , the body , nature
            9        …….. the knower of the field

 

Earth  , water  , fire , air , ether , mind , intelligence  and false ego – all together these eight comprise My (O) separated material energies (1-8). Besides this inferior nature (1-8) there  is a superior energy , which are all the living entities (9) who are struggling with material nature (1-8) and are sustaining the universe. Of all that is material (1-8) and all that is spiritual (9) in this world , know for certain that I am (O) both its origin and dissolution.

“I am (O) the fragrance of the earth (1) I am the taste of water (2) I am the heat and light of fire (3) Of purifiers I am the wind (4) I am the sound in ether (5)

 

Yoga of Dejection

The Bhagavad-Gita  describes the living entity (9) , the purusa (O) and material nature , the prakrti (1-8).

To know the purusa (O) one must know his creation (1-8) .  Prakrti (1-8) is an instrument that the  purusa (O) uses to create , and the study of prakrti  is also necessary if one wants to know him . Knowledge of the creation (1-8) is the first step toward awareness of the purusa (O) because his creation (1-8) is directly perceptible (3/6)

 

  •            1 – 8    ………  prakrti
  •              9        ………  living entity , soul
  •               O        ..…….  Purusa                          

 

Srimad Bhagavatam

By chance , two birds (9+O) have made a nest together in the same tree (1-8) . The two birds are friends and are of a similar nature . One of them however (9) , is eating the fruits of the tree (1-8) whereas the other , who does not eat the fruits of the tree , is the purusa (O), who by his omniscience perfectly understands his own position and that of the conditioned entity (9) , represented by the eating bird.

 

  •            124875      ………. tree , body , prakrti
  •               3/6       ………… sensual experience
  •                  9        ………… eating bird , soul
  •                  O        ………… witnessing bird , purusa

 

 

One  should see Me , the purusa (O) within all beings (9) and also within ones self (9) , to be unblemished by anything material (1-8) , and also present everywhere , both internally and externally , as the omnipresent sky. Although nature (1-8) and the living entity (9) are constitutionally distinct , there appears to be no difference between them , because they are found residing in one another . Thus the soul (9) appears to be within nature (1-8) and nature within the soul (9).

Bhakti Sandarba

The internal and external senses (3/6) of a person (9) are products of the gunas (1-8), so how can bhakti  (O) related knowledge and action , generated from the senses (3/6) , be nirguna (O) ?  The knowledge acquiring potency and the potency to act are not attributes of inert objects like clay pots (1-8) , which are made of the three gunas (material attributes) (1-8) , nor do they belong to the living being (9) , who although conscious by nature , is not independent  being but an energetic manifestation under the guardianship of the purusa (O), like a medium invested with the presence of a deity or spirit. Therefore it is concluded that these two potencies belong only to the paramatma chaitanya , the purusa (O).
