SrI: SrImathE SatakOpAya nama: SrImathE rAmAnujAya nama: SrImath varavaramunayE nama:
śṛṇu me paramaṁ vacaḥ
iṣṭo ’si me dṛḍham iti
tato vakṣyāmi te hitam
‘Hearken again to My Supreme Word, the most
secret of all as thou art to Me, precious and beloved. So I will tell what is good for thee.’
Among these three Paths, Bhakti-Yoga is pre-eminent, and hence it is the most secret, as declared already in :‘To thee, who art devoid of malice, I shall disclose this the profoundest secret etc.,’ (Gi: IX-1).
Again do thou hear My Word Supreme concerning this topic. Because thou art dear to Me and attached to Me, I tell thee what is for thy good.
