Chapter 18: Conclusion-The Perfection of Renunciation

Bg 18.4
TEXT 4
niscayam srnu me tatra
tyage bharata-sattama
tyago hi purusa-vyaghra
tri-vidhah samprakirtitah
SYNONYMS
niscayam—certainly; srnu—hear; me—from Me; tatra—there; tyage—in the matter of renunciation; bharata-sattama—O best of the Bharatas; tyagah—renunciation; hi—certainly; purusa-vyaghra—O tiger among human beings; tri-vidhah—three kinds; samprakirtitah—is declared.
TRANSLATION
O best of the Bharatas, hear from Me now about renunciation. O tiger among men, there are three kinds of renunciation declared in the scriptures.
PURPORT
Although there are differences of opinion about renunciation, here the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Sri Krsna, gives His judgment, which should be taken as final. After all, the Vedas are different laws given by the Lord. Here the Lord is personally present, and His word should be taken as final. The Lord says that the process of renunciation should be considered in terms of the modes of material nature in which they are performed.
