<< Chapter 12 verse 19


ye tu dharmāmṛtam idaṁ
yathoktaṁ paryupāsate
śraddadhānā mat-paramā
bhaktās te ’tīva me priyāḥ

‘Whoso, in fervid faith, with Me as Hope, devote themselves to this Holy Blissful Way, as set forth (above) are Bhaktas exceedingly dear to Me.’

The Way or Path which is dharmyam (Holy) and which is amṛitam (Blissful) namely BHAKTI-YOGA, which as means is equal to its end is that which was briefly expounded in the Stanza: ‘Who letting their mind enter into Me’ etc., (Gi. XII-2).

Whoso devote themselves to this Path in the manner set forth, they are My Bhaktas most exceedingly dear to Me.


Thus closes Discourse Twelve,

Named The Bhakti-Yoga,


The Path of (God-) Love

With Śri Rāmānuja’s commentary thereon,

In the colloquy between Śri Kṛishṇa and Arjuna,

In the Science of Yoga,

In the Divine knowledge of the Upanishads,

Or the Chants of Śrī Bhagavān,

The Bhagavad Gītā.
