This Adi-Shankaracharya commentary on Gita 18.66

This is Adi-Shankaracharya commentary on Geeta,18.66

As Adi Shankara said that even if Vedas say fire is cold and non luminous, such a statement cannot become valid and such a statement should be interpreted differently. Even an uneducated illiterate knows that fire is hot. There are also statements like a hundred sayings of Vedas that a crow is white cannot make a crow white. These types of statements should be interpreted differently.
