      Hare Krishna Friends,
      Chapter 3: Karma-yoga


                                                                       TEXT 2

                                                          vyamisreneva vakyena
                                                         buddhim mohayasiva me
                                                          tad ekam vada niscitya
                                                        yena sreyo 'ham apnuyam


      vyamisrena--by equivocal; iva--as; vakyena--words; buddhim--intelligence; mohayasi--bewildering; iva--as; me--my; tat--therefore; ekam--only one; vada--please tell; niscitya--ascertaining; yena--by which; sreyah--real benefit; aham--I; apnuyam--may have it.


      My intelligence is bewildered by Your equivocal instructions. Therefore, please tell me decisively what is most beneficial for me.


      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. Although Krsna had no intention of confusing Arjuna by any jugglery of words, Arjuna could
      not follow the process of Krsna consciousness--either by inertia or active service. In other words, by his questions he is clearing the path of Krsna consciousness for all students who seriously want to
      understand the mystery of the Bhagavad-gita.
