Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7 [ Gyan Vigyan Yog] by Swami Mukundananda [Eng]-3/23

In this episode Swamiji explains verses 4 and 5 of Chapter seven of Bhagavad Gita.
भूमिरापोऽनलो वायुः खं मनो बुद्धिरेव च ।
अहङ्कार इतीयं मे भिन्ना प्रकृतिरष्टधा ॥
Earth, water, fire, air, space, mind, intellect, and ego—these are eight components of my material energy. ||4||
अपरेयमितस्त्वन्यां प्रकृतिं विद्धि मे पराम् ।
जीवभूतां महाबाहो ययेदं धार्यते जगत् ॥
Such is my inferior energy. But beyond it, O mighty-armed Arjun, I have a superior energy. This is the jīva śhakti (the soul energy), which comprises the embodied souls who are the basis of life in this world. ||5||
