Krishna's Gita


 "Whoever among devotees dedicates all acts to Me with no other thought, whoever meditates on Me, serves Me, worships Me, remembers Me; know that I am always with him, ever providing for him in this world and the next; I bear the burden of his yoga-kshema. Do you hear Me?" asked Krishna, patting Arjuna again on the back and imparting courage to his drooping heart.."

This most sacred sentence is as the navel to the Gîtâ body. The navel of Vishnu was the place where Brahmâ took birth; this sloka is the navel or place of nativity for those who thirst for brahma-jñâna. If this
 sloka is followed in practice, the entire Gîtâ can be understood." 

“The devotee can tie up the Lord with his prema; by eka-bhakti that overpowers his egoism. When man is full of this type of bhakti, the Lord will Himself bless him with everything he needs; His grace will fulfill all his wants. Remind yourself here of the promise made by the Lord in the Gîtâ: yoga-kshemam vahâmyaham, I carry the burden of his welfare."

“The words yoga and kshema used by the Lord mean: yoga, acquisition of something desirable; and kshema, the preservation of what is thus acquired. The discipline by which you can preserve it is: Ananyâh cintayantah, exclusive meditation on the Lord. That will cleanse the mind; it will make you a bhakta. The bhakta is recognized by these things; he talks of the Lord; he sings of the Lord; he sees only the Lord; he works and spends his leisure with the Lord."

“The Gîtâ ddescribes genuine dhyana as: "Those persons who adore Me without any other thought and feeling."
