<< Chapter 12 verse 1


śrī-bhagavān uvāca
mayy āveśya mano ye māṁ
nitya-yuktā upāsate
śraddhayā parayopetās
te me yukta-tamā matāḥ

Rejoined the Blessed Lord thus:—

‘Those who worship Me with minds fixed on Me, with intense faith imbued, and ever longing for communion, are those whom I count as My best-devoted.’

They fix their minds (and hearts) in Me, or they let their minds enter into Me, inasmuch as I am to them the Dearest Object of love.

‘With intense faith (śraddhā) imbued,’ they eagerly long for eternal Divine Communion.

Those who in this spirit ‘worship Me’ i.e., the spirit in which the world of manas (mind and heart) is entirely occupied with thoughts of Me alone.

These are My best-devoted (yukta-tamāḥ)=those who would expeditiously and happily make towards their Goal —Myself.

>> Chapter 12 verse 3
