<< Chapter 14 verse 25


māṁ ca yo ’vyabhicāreṇa
bhakti-yogena sevate
sa guṇān samatītyaitān
brahma-bhūyāya kalpate

‘And whoso serves Me with unerring Bhakti-yoga, surmounts these qualities and is fit to become like Brahm.’

Not by mere reflection over the matter-soul distinction, in the manner declared in: No agent other than the qualities etc.,’ (Gi: XIV-19), can qualities be crossed; for reflection is ever liable to be violated by habits inimical to it which the mind has contracted in the long past.

Me=The Infallible-willed, the Infinitely Merciful, the Ocean of Love to My faithful, etc.

Avyabhichāreṇa = Lit: without adulteration: means un- erring= one-pointed and exclusively devoted (to Me).

Bhakti-yoga= Intense incessant and all-absorbing love-devotion to Me. The votary of Bhakti will surmount the otherwise insurmountable qualities, Satvam etc.

Brahma-bhūyāya = Brahma-bhāvāya = Eligibility to partake of the nature of Brahm. This state is the realization of the essential nature of ātma, —ātma, immortal and imperishable.
