<< Chapter 18 Verse 56

Simple

cetasā sarva-karmāṇi
mayi sannyasya mat-paraḥ
buddhi-yogam upāśritya
mac-cittaḥ satataṁ bhava

‘In thought, dedicating all works to Me, be ever thoughtful of Me, wedded to Buddhi-Yoga.’

In thought = In the thought that ātma (soul) is Mine and under My guidance. In this wise was the sense of the term (chetasā) glossed in the Stanza:—

‘With mind, ātma-absorbed, rest all works in Me’ (Gi: III-30).

Dedicating works = Offering up to Me everything in relation to works, whether it be the Authorship (of the works) or the worshipped objects (of the works, viz; Indra etc.)

Thoughtful of Me (mat-paraḥ)=Considering Myself thy Goal and as thy Fruit, and doing all works from this point of view. This constitutes Buddhi-Yoga or the Religion of Wisdom, in which ever do rest.

>> Chapter 18 Verse 57.5
