15. Why did the Speaker of the Knowledge of Gita call his Salvation Anuttam (Inferior)

Question: - Why did the Speaker of the knowledge of Gita call his salvation Anuttam (inferior)?

Answer: - The speaker of the knowledge of Gita has stated in Gita Chapter 2 Verse 12, Gita Chapter 4 Verse 5 and Gita Chapter 10 Verse 2 that – ‘Arjun! You and I have had several births. You don’t know; I know. Even Rishis (Sages) - Maharishis (great sages) and gods do not know about my origin. You and I, and these kings and soldiers have taken birth several times previously as well and will be born in future too.’ Readers may please contemplate. When Brahm is saying that even I have birth-death, then a worshipper of Brahm cannot attain the salvation mentioned in Gita Chapter 15 Verse 4 in which birth and death end forever. Until there is birth and death, there cannot be supreme peace. The Giver of knowledge of Gita has expressed incompetency for that. In Gita Chapter 18 Verse 62, he has said that for supreme peace, go in the refuge of that Supreme God (Param Akshar Brahm). Only by His grace, you will attain supreme peace and the eternal supreme abode. In Gita Chapter 8 Verse 5 and 7, the speaker of the knowledge of Gita has said that if you will worship me, then you will have to fight as well. Where there is war, there cannot be peace. Supreme peace is out of question. Therefore, the speaker of the knowledge of Gita has described his salvation (the benefit obtained from the recitation of ‘Om’ naam) as Anuttam (bad/inferior).
