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....

position or basis. Do they abide in Sattva, in Rajas or in Tamas? Such is

the meaning of the question. Thus questioned, the Lord, for affirming

the futility of faith and of sacrifices not enjoined in the Sastras, and in

order to show that the triple division in accordance with the Gunas refers

only to sacrifices etc., enjoined in the Sastras --- expounds here the

threefold nature of faith enjoined in the Sastras:
