<< Chapter 15 verse 18


yo mām evam asammūḍho
jānāti puruṣottamam
sa sarva-vid bhajati māṁ
sarva-bhāvena bhārata

‘Thus, whoso wise (man), Bhārata! knows Me as the Purushottama, knows all and serves Me in every manner.’

Whoso, grown wise, knows Me as the Purushottama described above: viz; as the Distinct from the Kshara and the Akshara souls; as the Infinite; as Him Who is characterized as the Pervader, Sustainer, Sovereign etc.

He knows all: Whatever there is that is to be known as the means by which to attain Me, he knows all that.

He serves Me in every manner=Whatever ways of service, in order to attain to Me, have been prescribed, he serves Me by all those ways of service, (worship).

By knowing Me as such (viz: Purushottama), he may assure himself of My love (for him) such as may be gainable by all other kinds of service (or worship) relating to Me (laid down in the Śāstras).

This aforesaid Purushottama-knowledge is now eulogised:
