भगवद् गीता अध्याय 6 श्लोक 40

नहि कल्याणकृत्कश्िचद्दुर्गतिं तात गच्छति।।6.40।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी रामसुख दास जी ( भगवद् गीता 6.40)

।।6.40।।श्रीभगवान् बोले हे पृथानन्दन उसका न तो इस लोकमें और न परलोकमें ही विनाश होता है क्योंकि हे प्यारे कल्याणकारी काम करनेवाला कोई भी मनुष्य दुर्गतिको नहीं जाता।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Destruction in this world is caused by diminution due to failure to secure neither the goal of svarga or heaven nor the goal of moksa or liberation from material existence. Failure to accomplish one or the other results in a destructive situation in the hereafter. This means a hellish destination in the worlds after death in the next life. Lord Krishna answers the previous verse by assuring that for the righteous who perform virtuous activities it is not possible to ever have a destructive situation and hellish destination. This is due to the reality that one is on the path of righteousness by just commencing with faith the process of yoga or the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the ultimate consciousness. Lord Krishna addresses Arjuna by the word tata meaning dear one like He would be speaking to a family member.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna is unconditionally confirming that there is no loss or diminution in their present life or in their next life for one who sincerely and earnestly engages themselves in yoga or the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the ultimate consciousness; but who later discontinues the practice due to weakness of mind and lack of dispassion. The word vinasas means destruction. It denotes forfeiture of material enjoyment in svarga loka or the heavenly planets and it also denotes the loss of spiritual accomplishments as well, both which an aspirant could have achieved. Destruction also infers the intervention of undesirable obstacles in the form of negative activities. But when one has performed even a little yoga in meditation one is automatically insured that there will be no diminution either in the present or in the future. How this is so is answered next.
