Conclusion—The Perfection of Renunciation
Chapter 18: Verse- 68

ya idam paramam guhyam mad-bhaktesv abhidhäsyati
bhaktim mayi paräm krtvä mäm evaisyaty asamsayah[1]


For one who explains this supreme secret to the devotees, pure devotional service is guaranteed, and at the end he will come back to Me.


Generally it is advised that Bhagavad-gita be discussed amongst the devotees only, for those who are not devotees will understand neither krsna nor Bhagavad-gita. Those who do not accept krsna as He is and Bhagavad-gita as it is should not try to explain Bhagavad-gita whimsically and become offenders. Bhagavad-gita should be explained to persons who are ready to accept krsna as the Supreme Personality of Godhead. It is a subject matter for the devotees only and not for philosophical speculators. Anyone, however, who tries sincerely to present Bhagavad-gita as it is will advance in devotional activities and reach the pure devotional state of life. As a result of such pure devotion, he is sure to go back home, back to Godhead.
