English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

11.1 Arjuna said To show favour to me, who is deluded by the misconception that the body is the self, these words of supreme mystery concerned with the self, i.e., which is a proper description of the self, have been spoken by You in words beginning from There was never a time when I did not exist (2.12) and ending with, Therefore, O Arjuna, become a Yogin (6.46). By that this delusion of mine about the self is entirely removed.
