Sri Ramanuja's Bhashya on the Bhagavad Gita attempts to wrest away attention in the commentatorial world from the celebrated Advaita of Sri Sankara Bhagavadpada and establish clear scriptural grounds for his theory of qualified monism, or Visishtadvaita. How far he achieves this is a judgement I will leave to the intellect of the readers. Please ALSO download Sri Sankara's Gita Bhashya and attempt an comparative study, especially the highly involved discussions in Chapters 12 and 18. I had created this PDF after assembling together individual chapter commentaries from Gitasupersite.com. I hope you all enjoy this....

all beings as their very Self and therefore, are, in reality all of them.

Terms, naming all other entities, are truly naming You; for they, both

sentient as well as non-sentient, constitute Your body, and as such are

just Your modes. Therefore You alone, having them all as Your modes,

are signified by all terms standing for them. In the texts, 'O by You of

infinite form, is the cosmos pervaded' (11.38) and 'You pervade all, and

hence are all' (11.40), it is clearly stated that the pervasion as the Self is

the only rationale for speaking of them as one with You, in the sense of

co-ordinate predication as in the text, 'You are the imperishable and also

being and non-being' (11.37) and 'You are Vayu, Yama and Agni'

(11.39).
