|Chapter 7||Knowledge of the Ultimate Truth||Verse 2|
Rudra Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Lord Krishna praises the transcendental knowledge that He is about to instruct as it leads to blessedness and realisation. This transcendental knowledge is the essence of Vedanta and derivable from the Vedic scriptures. Its realisation guarantees that there is nothing further to be known by one who is an aspirant for moksa or liberation from material existence. Such a person becomes exalted by such realisation alone.
Brahma Vaisnava Sampradaya:
The word jnana means Vedic knowledge but the compound word sa-vijnanam indicates transcendental spiritual awareness concerning the Supreme Lord. Lord Krishna is stating that He will reveal the complete process and means for achieving it
Sri Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Lord Krishna has deigned to reveal completely in detail the general knowledge concerning Him as well as the esoteric knowledge which can be realised. The word vijnana means realised knowledge. This denotes a more profound level of understanding with a special propensity of inate wisdom which can discern and discriminate the reality of the Supreme Lord Krishna being the original substratum and foundation of all that is animate and inanimate in existence. He is the ultimate controller, the antithesis to whatever is demoniac. He is the sovereign master of all creation possessing unlimited divine glories and infinite transcendental qualities and attributes. Along with revealing these things Lord Krishna will also reveal the wisdom concerning His manifested nature. By the realisation of this spiritual knowledge there will be nothing left worthy of knowing for an aspirant of bhakti or unconditional loving devotion. The extreme difficulty in acquiring such esoteric knowledge about the Supreme Lord will be explained in the following verse.
Kumara Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Lord Krishna presents this knowledge so as to provoke attention to the recipient by the words idam jnanam meaning the theoretical knowledge described in the Vedic scriptures and the words sa-vijnanam meaning knowledge of His manifested divine majesty based on realisation. The combination of theoretical knowledge with realisation from one's very own actual experience insures that there will be nothing else to be known for an aspirant in this world for moksa or liberation from the material existence who is engaged in practising yoga or the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the ultimate consciousness.
