As I understand, Krishna is giving definitions for different terms in this
Here He is defining Brahman - as aksharam and paramam - kshara means that which
disintegrates. He is askharam what which is eternal.
Paramam means supreme - there is nothing beyond Brahman - the ultimate.
Both are indicatory definitions since Brahman cannot be defined.
