16.14. ‘That enemy has been slain by me; and I shall slay others also; I am the lord; I am a man of enjoyment; I am successful, mighty and happy’;

Shri Purohit Swami

16.14 I have slain one enemy, I will slay the others also; I am worthy to enjoy, I am the Almighty, I am perfect, powerful and happy;

Sri Abhinav Gupta

16.14 See Coment under 16.16

Sri Ramanuja

16.14 This enemy has been slain by me, powerful as I am. I shall slay other enemies also - I who am heoric and valiant. What is the use of the conception of destiny, which is only an imagination of weak people of little understanding?


I am ’the lord,’ viz., I am independent, and I am also the ruler of others. I am the ’enjoyer,’ viz., I am the enjoyer through my own powers, and not through good fortune etc. I am ‘successful,’ viz., I am successful by myself and not through any destiny etc. Likewise, I am strong and happy by myself.

Sri Shankaracharya

16.14 Asau, that; unconerable satruh, enemy, named Devadatta; hatah, has been killed; naya, by me; and hanisye, I shall kill; aparan, the other wretched ones. What will these pitiable persons do? There is none eal to me at all. Aham, I; am the isvarah, lord; I am the bhogi, enjoyer; and I am siddhah, well-established in every respect-I am blessed with sons, and grandsons born of sons and daughters. Not only am I a man, but I am also balavan, mighty; and I myself am sukhi, happpy; others are born to be but a burden to the earth!

Swami Adidevananda

16.14 ‘This enemy is slain by me; and others also I shall slay. I am the Lord, I am the enjoyer, I am successful, I have strength, I have happiness.

Swami Gambirananda

16.14 ‘That enemy has been killed by me, and I shall kill others as well. I am the lord, I am the enjoyer, I am well-established, mighty and happy.’

Swami Sivananda

16.14 “That enemy has been slain by me; and others also I shall slay. I am the lord. I enjoy. I am perfect, powerful and happy.”


Swami Sivananda

16.14 असौ that? मया by me? हतः slain? शत्रुः enemy? हनिष्ये (I) shall slay? च and? अपरान् others? अपि also? ईश्वरः Lord? अहम् I? अहम् I? भोगी the enjoyer? सिद्धः perfect? अहम् I? भोगी the enjoyer? सिद्धः perfect? अहम् I? बलवान् powerful? सुखी happy.Commentary I will be the lord of all I survey. I will kill everyone who will not serve me. In fact I am the lord of all creation. I will be successful in all my undertakings. I have got plenty of landed property? cattle and immense wealth. I have got plenty of children and grandchildren. Even Indra is not eal to me. I am not an ordinary man. I am very powerful? strong? healthy and happy in every respect.In this verse there is a description of the vain imaginations of the people of demoniacal nature.
