हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी रामसुख दास जी ( भगवद् गीता 2.11)

।।2.11।।श्रीभगवान् बोले तुमने शोक न करनेयोग्यका शोक किया है और पण्डिताईकी बातें कह रहे हो परन्तु जिनके प्राण चले गये हैं उनके लिये और जिनके प्राण नहीं गये हैं उनके लिये पण्डितलोग शोक नहीं करते।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Discerning that Arjunas grief was due to the absence of discrimination between the soul and the physical body the Supreme Lord remembering Arjuna words stated in verse 28 of chapter one, regarding his lamentation for all his kinsman preparing for battle reminded him that in verse 2 of Chapter 2 He had instructed him asking: wherefore has this weakness arisen in this moment of crisis, yet here you are again merely speaking learned words befitting the wise like in verse four of Chapter 2, how are you to fight against worshippable superiors? But actually you only speak the words of a learned person because factually a spiritually intelligent person laments neither for ones kin who are dead or alive, sputtering about how can you cannot live if you lose your relations.

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.
