Commentary: Sārārtha-Varṣiṇī Ṭīkā
It so happens that the two papers on which I had written the explanation of the five final verses summarizing the essence of the complete Gītā have disappeared. I take it that Gaṇeśajī had those papers stolen by his mouse carrier. After that, I did not again write those purports. May Gaṇeśajī be pleased with me. I offer my obeisances unto him.
Thus ends the bhāvānuvāda of Śrīla Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura’s
Sārārtha-varṣiṇī-ṭīkā (the commentary which gives pleasure to the
devotees and is accepted by all saintly persons)
on the Eighteenth Chapter of Śrīmad Bhagavad-gītā.
