भगवद् गीता अध्याय 16 श्लोक 15

English Translation - Swami Sivananda

16.15 I am rich and born in a noble family. Who else is eal to me? I shall perform sacrifices. I shall give (charity). I shall rejoice, thus deluded by ignorance.

English Translation of Sanskrit Commentary By Sri Shankaracharya's

16.15 Adhyah, I am rich in wealth; abhi-janavan, high-born in respect of my lineage; my seven generations are endowed with Vedic learnig etc. From that point of view also there is none eal to me. Kah anyah, who else; asti, is there; sadrsah, similar; maya, to me? Besides, yaksye, I shall perform sacrifices; in respect of sacrifices also I shall defeat others. Dasyami, I shall give-to actors and others; modisye, I shall rejoice, and I shall derive intense joy. Iti, thus; are they ajnana-vimohitah, diversely deluded by non-discrimination, subject to various indiscrimination.
