(Knowledge of the AbsoluteText 27 Chapter 7)


Meaning: O scion of Bharata, O conqueror of the foe, all living entities are born into delusion, bewildered by dualities arisen from desire and hate.

*** The real constitutional position of the living entity is that of  subordination to the Supreme Lord, who is pure knowledge. When one is deluded into separation from this pure knowledge, he becomes controlled by illusory energy and cannot  understand the Supreme Personality of Godhead. The illusory energy is manifested in the duality of desire and hate. Deluded persons, symptomatically, dwell in dualities of dishonor  and honor, misery and happiness, woman and man, good and bad, pleasure and pain, etc. thinking, ” This is my wife; this is my house; I am the master of this house; I am the husband of this wife.” These are the dualities of delusion. Those who are so deluded by dualities are completely foolish and therefore cannot understand the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
