Shloka Translation
BG – Ch. 10- Ver. 32:

O Arjuna, I am the beginning, end, and middle of the creations. I am spiritual science among the sciences, and Vaada among the debates.


All that is created, such as space, air, fire, water, and earth, is named sarga, he now says of all creation. These are created by me , maintained by me, and annihilated by me . As a result, as my vibhutis, I can reflect on the processes of creation, maintenance, and dissolution.

Vidya is a person’s education in respect to several disciplines of knowledge. The scriptures list eighteen different sorts of vidyas. Rig, Yajur, Sama, and Atharva these four branches of Vedic knowledge are prominent among them. These are the fourteen main vidyas, together with Mīmānsā, Nyāya, Dharma Śhāstra, and the Puranas.

The practise of these vidyas develops the intellect, broadens knowledge, and heightens awareness of the dharma path. In addition, spirituality science frees humans from material enslavement and grants them immortality. As a result, it outperforms the vidyas previously stated.

In the subject of argument and logic, jalpa refers to pointing out flaws in the opponent’s arguments in order to demonstrate one’s own point of view. Vitaṇḍa refers to the use of deception and foolish arguments to prevent proper reflection on the truth. The logical conclusion of the discussion is Vada. Logic is the foundation for the exchange of ideas and the discovery of truths. Knowledge may be easily grown, taught, and learned in human civilization because of a universal sense of logic. The universal logic principles are a manifestation of God’s power.

Verse & what we can learn

To keep us from becoming engrossed in specific manifestations of Ishvara, Shri Krishna approaches Arjuna and reminds him that Ishvara is present in everything and at all times. He created the universe as Brahma, maintains the universe as Vishnu, and dissolves the universe as Shiva. Ishvara, on the other hand, is always present and does not leave throughout any of these activities.

Spiritual wisdom, or self-knowledge, has the potential to transport us from the corporeal world to Ishvara. This is why, amid all sorts of knowledge, Shri Krishna honours “adhyaatma vidyaa,” spiritual knowledge. We’ve arrived at the topic of debates. A conversation between two people in which one is attempting to persuade the other is vitally significant in all aspects of life.

The speaker in “Jalpa” wants to prove his point and drag his opponent down, regardless of how sound or logical his opponent’s argument is. The speaker in “Vitanda” has no argument to make; all he wants to do is knock down his opponent. Only in “Vaada” do both speakers listen to and push each other to guarantee that the best logical argument wins, rather than one speaker or the other. Shri Krishna claims that Ishvara’s primary expression is a debate that prioritizes logic over ego.

To acquire knowledge and to implement that knowledge in life one needs to be mentally and physically active and healthy and for that daily meditation is a great tool.

There are various types of meditation like Buddhist meditation, heartfulness meditation, mindfulness meditation, meditation for stress, and each meditation benefits are countless. There is also numerous meditation techniques for beginners which help in practicing daily meditation so go ahead and start your journey towards a peaceful and balanced life.

In the next Shloka we continue to learn more about Ishvara’s expressions.
