Gita 8.26

शुक्लकष्णे, गती, हि, एते, जगतः, शाश्वते, मते, 

Gita 8.26

Shuklkrishne, gati, hi, ete, jagatH, shaashvate, mate,
Ekya, yaati, anaavrttim’, anyya, aavartate, punH ||26||

Translation: (Hi) because (jagatH) of the world (ete) these two types of (shuklkrishne) Shukl and Krishna (gati) paths of salvation (shaashvate) eternal (mate) are considered, among these (ekya) he who has gone by one (anaavrttim’) by which he does not have to return, that supreme state (yaati) attains and (anyya) he who has gone by the other (punH) again (aavartate) returns i.e. attains birth-death. (26)

Gita 8.26: Because these two types of paths of salvation, Shukl and Krishna, are considered to be eternal, of these he, who has gone through one from where there is no return, attains the supreme state; and he, who has gone through the other, again returns i.e. attains birth-death.

Important: - The meaning of Gita Chapter 8 Verse 27-28 is that, the knowledge which has been given in the aforesaid Verses 1 to 26 about the two Gods (Brahm and Purna Brahm), after becoming familiar with the benefit of salvation from those two Gods, a wise person does not get deluded i.e. does not get deceived by doing worship of Kaal. Therefore, it has been said that make your mind for doing bhakti of that Purna Parmatma (Complete God / Supreme God).

Understanding the Tatvgyan (true spiritual knowledge), knowing the mystery of the aforesaid knowledge, a worshipper only strives to attain the Complete/Supreme God; and does not only remain dependent on the benefit obtained from the way of worship mentioned in the Vedas. He obtains the benefit beyond (which is mentioned in the Swasam Ved) the four Vedas (Rigved, Samved, Yajurved and Atharvaved). For that, he, not attaining the worldly benefits obtained from the virtues gained from the religious practice of the Vedas {from charity, austerity (three types of austerity has been mentioned in Gita Chapter 17 Verse 14 to 16) and sacrificial ceremony}, relinquishing it in Brahm for the attainment of the Complete/Supreme God, attains complete salvation. Because on the basis of the virtues obtained from the method mentioned in the Vedas, one attains heaven. After the diminution of virtues, one has to again bear sufferings on the basis of sins.

In Gita Chapter 9 Verse 20-21 – even by the way of worship mentioned in the Vedas, the cycle of birth-death and heaven-hell does not end. In Gita Chapter 11 Verse 48 and 53, it is said that I can not be attained by the way of worship mentioned in the Vedas. In Gita Chapter 11 Verse 54, there is mention of only – entering into me; not about salvation-liberation. Like, the giver of the knowledge of Gita daily eats one lakh embodied living beings in Kaal form.

Like, in the description in Gita Chapter 11 Verse 21, Arjun is telling what he is witnessing that the hosts of sages and gods which is singing your praise with Vedic mantras, you are eating them too. They are all entering into you. Some are hanging in your jaws. Regarding this only, there is mention in Verse 54. The meaning of Verse 55 is that my worshippers attain me. They remain in my trap. For that, it is said in Gita Chapter 8 Verse 28 that by the path of bhakti told by a Complete saint (Tatvdarshi saint), a worshipper does not destroy the fruit of the way of worship mentioned in the Vedas by going in heaven etc, rather, strives to attain the Complete God. Relinquishing those earnings of the Vedas (jaap of Om mantra and fruit of five yagyas) in Brahm, attains the Complete God. As a result of which, attains complete salvation. This very evidence is in Gita Chapter 18 Verse 66. It is said that O Arjun, relinquishing all religious practices of my level in me, you may (Vraj) go in the refuge of only that one (unique) Almighty Supreme God, then I will make you free from all sins. Because the sins which had to be borne, in return for it by relinquishing all the virtues and the earnings of (jaap) rememberance of mantra, the debt of Kaal finishes. Hence, one gets liberated from Kaal’s trap.
