भगवद् गीता अध्याय 2 श्लोक 22

वासांसि जीर्णानि यथा विहाय

English Translation of Sanskrit Commentary By Sri Shankaracharya's

2.22 Yatha, as in the world; vihaya, after rejecting jirnani, wornout; vasamsi, clothes; narah, a man grhnati, takes up; aparani, other; navani, new ones; tatha, likewise, in that very manner; vihaya, after rejecting; jirnani, wornout; sarirani, bodies; dehi, the embodied one, the Self which is surely unchanging like the man (in the example); samyati, unites with; anyani, other; navani, new ones. This is meaning.

English Translation of Commentary - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

2.22 Vasamsi etc. just as a well - dressed person, on the destruction of his garment, gets himself dressed in another more suitable garment, and he does not perish on that account, in the same way the Self, dressed with different bodies [behaves].

English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

2.22 That those who give up their bodies in a righteous war get more beauteous bodies than before, is known through the scriptures. Casting off worn-out garments and taking new and beautiful ones, can be only a cause of joy, as seen here in the world in the case of new garments. Once again Sri Krsna emphasises for easy understanding the indestructibility of the self, taught before: Know that to be indestructible by which all this is pervaded (II.17) and confirms it thus:
