भगवद् गीता अध्याय 2 श्लोक 11

श्री भगवानुवाच
अशोच्यानन्वशोचस्त्वं प्रज्ञावादांश्च भाषसे।
गतासूनगतासूंश्च नानुशोचन्ति पण्डिताः।।2.11।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी तेजोमयानंद

।।2.11।। श्री भगवान् ने कहा -- (अशोच्यान्) जिनके लिये शोक करना उचित नहीं है? उनके लिये तुम शोक करते हो और ज्ञानियों के से वचनों को कहते हो? परन्तु ज्ञानी पुरुष मृत (गतासून्) और जीवित (अगतासून्) दोनों के लिये शोक नहीं करते हैं।।

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Prajnavadah is a speculative concoction which appeals very much to the mind bewildering it so much that the intelligence accepts it even though it is not according to the injunctions of the Vedic scriptures. Why is it unworthy of sorrow? Because the intelligent neither lament for the living or for the dead. Now begins the summation. Those who are illuminated are factually illuminated by knowledge due to realization. They are prajnah or wise and knowledgeable. Avadah means they who are opposed to the Vedic injunctions. Whatever the wise and knowledgeable proclaim is always in conjunction with the Vedic injunctions. Whatever is contrary to the Vedic injunctions on any level of consciousness is not worthy of contemplation. This is factually what is meant here in this verse.
