Shrimad Bhagavad Gita As It Is -Shri Shrimad A.C Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada

Chapter 6: Verse-47

This stage of highest perfection in yoga can be attained only by bhakti-yoga, as is confirmed in all Vedic literature:[1]

yasya deve parä bhaktir yathä deve tathä gurau
tasyaite kathitä hy arthäh prakäsante mahätmanah

“Only unto those great souls who have implicit faith in both the Lord and the spiritual master are all the imports of Vedic knowledge automatically revealed.”

Bhaktir asya bhajanam tad ihämutropädhi-nairäsyenämusmin manah-kalpanam, etad eva naiskarmyam.=“Bhakti means devotional service to the Lord which is free from desire for material profit, either in this life or in the next. Devoid of such inclinations, one should fully absorb the mind in the Supreme. That is the purpose of naiskarmya.” Gopäla-täpani[2] These are some of the means for performance of bhakti, or krsna consciousness, the highest perfectional stage of the yoga system.

Thus end the Bhaktivedanta Purports to the Sixth Chapter of the Srimad Bhagavad-gita in the matter of Dhyäna-yoga.
