Bhagavad Gita: Chapter 2 - Verse 39

The path of knowledge

Yesha Te Bhihita Sankhye Buddhir Yoge Twimam Shrunu
Buddya Yukto Yaya Partha Karma Bandham Prahasyasi

The second chapter of the Bhagavad Gita is like a brief summary of the different paths of Yoga in all the chapters of the Gita.
Sri Krishna adresses Arjuna as Partha and says: Now I have told you the path of Sankhya Yoga or the means to connect with the Universal consciousness through Gnana or wisdom. Now listen to how you can be detached from being bound by actions or Karma by functioning from this unified plane of individual wisdom when connected to the Universal consciousness.
