<< Chapter 7


śrī-bhagavān uvāca
mayy āsakta-manāḥ pārtha
yogaṁ yuñjan mad-āśrayaḥ
asaṁśayaṁ samagraṁ māṁ
yathā jñāsyasi tac chṛṇu

‘Hearken, Pārtha! how thou canst know Me, with certitude, in My finality, by thy mind placed in love with Me; and —relying on Me— by engaging in (bhakti-)yoga.’’

Mayy-āsakta-manāḥ means he whose mind is, in friendly spirit, set on Me; so much is he attached to Me and so impassionately doth he love Me that if he should ever happen to be separated from Me, even for a moment,or should chance to suspend his thoughts for a moment from musing on My attributes, or on My doings, or should perchance forget for a moment to think of the magnificence of My universal Divine Estate, that would suffice to imperil his very existence.

Mad-āśrayaḥ’=reliant on Me=he who exclusively trusts to Me as his Prop, without which he could not stand.

Thus, listen, how thou canst learn by what I am going to tell thee, how one of the above description, who engages in (bhakti-)yoga, or Love-full Divine meditation, can know Me in all my total perfection as I am, and as I am in very truth.
