2nd Chapter 41st Sloka

व्यवसायात्मिका बुद्धिरेकेह कुरुनन्दन ।
बहुशाखा ह्यनन्ताश्च बुद्धयोऽव्यवसायिनाम् ॥२.४१॥

vyavasāyātmikā buddhirekeha kurunandana |
bahuśākhā hyanantāśca buddhayo'vyavasāyinām ||2.41||

व्यवसायात्मिका 1/1 बुद्धिः 1/1 एका 1/1 इह 0 कुरुनन्दन 8/1
बहुशाखाः 1/3 हि 0 अनन्ताः 1/3 0 बुद्धयः 1/3 अव्यवसायिनाम् 6/3 ॥२.४१॥

·         व्यवसायात्मिका [vyavasāyātmikā] = well-ascertained = व्यवसायात्मिका (f.) + 1/1
·         बुद्धिः [buddhiḥ] = understanding = बुद्धि (f.) + 1/1
·         एका [ekā] = one = एका (pron. f.) + 1/1
·         इह  [iha] = in this = अव्ययम्
·         कुरुनन्दन [kurunandana] = O! Descendant of Kurus = कुरुनन्दन (m.) + सम्बोधने 1/1
·         बहुशाखाः [bahuśākhāḥ] = many-brached = बहुशाखा (f.) + 1/3
·         हि [hi] = indeed = अव्ययम्
·         अनन्ताः [anantāḥ] = innumerable = अनन्ता (f.) + 1/3
·         [ca] = and = अव्ययम्
·         बुद्धयः [buddhayaḥ] = notions = बुद्धि (f.) + 1/3
·         अव्यवसायिनाम् [avyavasāyinām] = of the indiscriminate = अव्यवसायिन् (m.) + 6/3


With reference to this (mokṣa), O! Descendant of Kurus, there is a single, well-ascertained understanding. The notions of those who lack discrimination are many-branched and innumerable indeed.

इह 0 व्यवसायात्मिका 1/1 एका 1/1 बुद्धिः 1/1 कुरुनन्दन 8/1

Sentence 2:
बहुशाखाः 1/3 हि 0 अनन्ताः 1/3 0 अव्यवसायिनाम् 6/3 बुद्धयः 1/3 ॥२.४१॥
