Bhagavad-Gita Chapter 3, Verse 2

Chapter 3: Karma-yoga
Verse: 2
vyamisreneva vakyena
buddhim mohayasiva me
tad ekam vada niscitya
yena sreyo 'ham apnuyam

Translation:
My intelligence is bewildered by Your equivocal instructions. Therefore, please tell me decisively which will be most beneficial for me.

Explanation:
Srila Prabhupada comments, "In the previous chapter, as a prelude to the Bhagavad-gita, many different paths were explained, such as sankhya-yoga, buddhi-yoga; control of the senses by intelligence, work without fruitive desire, and the position of the neophyte. This was all presented unsystematically. A more organized outline of the path would be necessary for action and understanding. Arjuna, therefore, wanted to clear up these apparently confusing matters so that any common man could accept them without misinterpretation."

Krishna will begin answering Arjuna's question by explaining in the following seven verse (3.3-3.9) the defect in his desire to renounce work.


Please read the Sanskrit Verse and the Prabhupada's Purport.
