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....

Sastras; the meaning is that he is engaged in perverse acts; who is

'unrefined', means one uninstructed; who is 'stubborn', means one who

is not disposed to act; who is 'depraved' means one who has the taste

for black magic etc; who is dishonest is one who is treacherous; who is

'indolent' is one who is not inclined to carry out actions undertaken; who

is 'despondent' is one given to excessive despondency; and one who is

'dilatory', is a person who, while engaged in black magic, etc., pays

malevolent attention to produce long-standing evil to others --- such a

doer is declared to be Tamasika. Thus, has been told the threefold

division in terms of the Gunas of the knowledge about the work that

ought to be performed, and about the agent of work. Now, Sri Krsna

describe s the threefold division of Buddhi and Dhrti (fortitude) on the

basis of Gunas. These faculties give the determinate knowledge of all

realities in existence and of all ends of human life (Purusarthas).
