<< Chapter 12 verse 7

Simple

mayy eva mana ādhatsva
mayi buddhiṁ niveśaya
nivasiṣyasi mayy eva
ata ūrdhvaṁ na saṁśayaḥ

‘In Me alone rest thy manas,1 into me let thy buddhi2 enter; in me alone shalt thou thence doubtless abide.’

Inasmuch as I am the Highest Hope (of man), most easily attainable, and swiftly reachable, let thy manas (heart) find its peace in Me; and let thy buddhi (intellect) enter = let it constantly think that I am the Supreme End.

Thence, i.e., after the heart and intellect are so directed and disciplined, thou shalt reside (ever) in Myself.

>> Chapter 12 verse 9
