।।18.30।।हे पृथानन्दन जो बुद्धि प्रवृत्ति और निवृत्तिको? कर्तव्य और अकर्तव्यको? भय और अभयको तथा बन्धन और मोक्षको जानती है? वह बुद्धि सात्त्विकी है।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna explains that those whose buddhi or intellect is situated in sattva guna the mode of goodness possess the understanding due to refined intelligence that has a natural inclination towards righteousness and abstinence from unrighteousness. They are resolute and comprehend that righteous actions lead to moksa or liberation from material existence and unrighteous actions lead to the bondage of samsara the perpetual cycle of birth and death. Innately their consciousness is aware of what is to be done and what is not to be done according to time, place and circumstance. Such consciousness should be understood as the agency and the doer is but the instrument. This can be understood by the question: Is there enough wood to cook the food? Although it is not the wood that does the cooking it is the fire. So the agent is like the wood utilised as the instrument and the fire is like the consciousness represented as the agency.
