janma karma ca me divyam
evam yo vetti tattvatah
tyaktva deham punar janma
naiti mam eti so ’rjuna
"One who knows the transcendental nature of My appearance and activities does not, upon leaving the body, take his birth again in this material world, but attains My eternal abode, O Arjuna."
Me = My [Sri Krishna's], divya = glorified, much different from the nature of this world, janma = birth, karma = [My] actions, far different from the actions of various persons in the world. He says that both His birth and actions as He grew, are all glorious and can not be equated with the normal ones we see everyday in this world. Evam = one who, vetti = understands, tatvata = the real significance or purpose. When He was born as a cowherd, we should not treat Him as a cowherd we come across but understand His greatness and realise that He has come to redeem us. When we see His actions like stealing butter or flirting with the women folk, we have to understand the greatness in Him and not equate them with our actions in this world. Sa = that great person [ who understands the real significance], tyakta deham = casts away his body, punar janma = again a birth [ rebirth ], naity = never takes, mam eti = and reaches Me [Sri Krishna]. That is a person, who understands the avatara rahasya that His birth and actions are real, that they can not be compared with our births and actions,that all such births and actions are for the good of all and that they [ births and actions ] have no blemish, would have understood the significance of the avatar of the Lord. Such a person attains Moksham in that birth itself. This is a great boon to us and can be noted as His anugraha or blessings. We have passed many births and we seem to be not knowing when we will be relieved of this arduous cycle and now the Lord declares that if in the process of our devotion we understand His avatara secret, then we will be relieved of this birth cycle in this birth itself and after death we will reach the Lord's feet and attain Moksham.
