THE YOGA OF THE IMPERISHABLE BRAHMAN
kiṁ tad brahma kim adhyātmaṁ kiṁ
adhibhūtaṁ ca kiṁ proktam adhidaivaṁ
kim ucyate (VIII-1)
ko ’tra dehe ’smin madhusūdana
prayāṇakāle ca kathaṁ jñeyo ’si
VIII/1. Arjuna said: What is that Brahman? What is
adhyātmān? What is karmā? What is declared to be
the adhibhūta? And, what is adhidaiva said to be?
VIII/2. O Krishna, what is adhiyajña here in this body,
and how does it function? And, how art thou to be
known by the self-controlled at the time of death?
