BG Chap 13 - Overview

Arjuna asks Kṛṣṇa about six topics: prakṛti (nature), puruṣa (the enjoyer), kṣetra (the field of activities), kṣetra-jña (the knower of the field), jñānam (process of knowing) and jñeyam (the object of knowledge). Kṛṣṇa explains the real natures of the body, the jīva and the Supreme Lord in order to clarify jñāna. He also explains the cause of the relation of the body with the jīva and the method of distinguishing the body from the jīva. He explains jñāna in detail by first examining the field, the knower of the field, the process of knowledge and the object of knowledge
