तपस्विभ्योऽधिको योगी ज्ञानिभ्योऽपि मतोऽधिकः।
कर्मिभ्यश्चाधिको योगी तस्माद्योगी भवार्जुन।।6.46।।
।।6.46।।(सकामभाववाले) तपस्वियोंसे भी योगी श्रेष्ठ है ज्ञानियोंसे भी योगी श्रेष्ठ है और कर्मियोंसे भी योगी श्रेष्ठ है ऐसा मेरा मत है। अतः हे अर्जुन तू योगी हो जा।
As yoga or the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the ultimate consciouness leads to the highest aspiration of human existence. It is known that yoga is greater what is attainable by ascetics living austerities, greater than what is attainable by Vedic knowledge that is bereft of knowledge of the soul and greater than what is attained by the performance of ritualistic ceremonies prescribed in the Vedas concerning fruitive rewards. Hence the yogi is superior to all these. Thus Lord Krishna encourages Arjuna to become a yogi. This verse is a eulogy on higher theosophy and it relates to the acquisition of atma tattva or realisation of the soul as the preliminary step to God realisation.
