A part of the puruṣa lies down within the water of the universe, from the navel lake of His body sprouts a lotus stem, and from the lotus flower atop this stem, Brahmā, the master of all engineers in the universe, becomes manifest.Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 1.3.2

Carrying out the order of His father, who was bound by a promise to his wife, Lord Rāmacandra left behind His kingdom, opulence, friends, well-wishers, residence and everything else, just as a liberated soul gives up his life, and went to the forest with Sītā.Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam 9.10.8

krishna-arjuna

Krishna mentions sacred texts at the end of the previous chapter, and this prompts Arjuna to ask for more details. What is the situation of persons who practice sacrificial rites but do not follow the prescriptions for such rites provided in the sacred texts? Arjuna frames his question in terms of the three modalities—illumination, passion, and darkness—so Krishna’s response, comprising most of this chapter, is also in these terms, constituting a further elaboration on the modalities from Chapter 14.

In the conditioned stage, one’s conceptions of life are sometimes polluted by passion and ignorance, which are exhibited by attachment, hostility, greed, lamentation, illusion, fear, madness, false prestige, insults, fault-finding, deception, envy, intolerance, passion, bewilderment, hunger and sleep. All of these are enemies. Sometimes one’s conceptions are also polluted by goodness.

krishna-arjuna

Throughout the Gītā, Krishna helps Arjuna to deepen his relationship of friendship with Krishna by encouraging him to pursue the practice of yoga. “Yoga” can mean “connection”, and Krishna makes very clear that the particular connection to be made, or reaffirmed, is with himself as bhagavān, puruṣottama, the original and ultimate person.
