Bhagavad Gita Chapter 6 Verse 46

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 6 श्लोक 46

तपस्विभ्योऽधिको योगी ज्ञानिभ्योऽपि मतोऽधिकः।
कर्मिभ्यश्चाधिको योगी तस्माद्योगी भवार्जुन।।6.46।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी रामसुख दास जी ( भगवद् गीता 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।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

The result of yoga or the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the ultimate consciousness verifies that the yogi is greater than the ascetics who perform ritualistic penances like Chandrayana or fasting with the cycles of the moon, the jnanis or knowers of Vedic scripture without the requisite realisation and the karmis or those who perform prescribed Vedic activities for fruitive results and rewards such as Ishtas or rites and rituals for attaining material gains in the present life or in svarga loka the heavenly spheres in the afterlife and Purta or acts of charity such as well digging for public use, giving food in charity etc. Therefore Lord Krishna is encouraging Arjuna to be a yogi.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

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.
