प्रोच्यमानमशेषेण पृथक्त्वेन धनञ्जय।।18.29।।

English Translation - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

18.29. You must listen [from Me] to the three-fold division of the intellect and also of content both being expounded completely and individually, [by Me] basing on the Strands, O Dhananjaya !

English Translation of Commentary - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

18.29 Buddheh etc. Intellect : the faculty of resolving. Content : satisfaction. After having performed either good or wicked action, everyone, at the end, feels what is to be necessarily performed has been performed; so why furhter more ? Or else what could be the cause for [ones] retiring from that action ? Therefore in every one there is content. This is the meaning intended here. The word-meaning, that is not clearly known-that alone is certainly explained [hereinafter].
