Srimad Bhagavadgita Sadhaka Sanjivani -Swami Ramsukhdas
In the Gita the description of the divine glories of God is not of secondary importance but it is an important means for God-realization which leads to `Vasudevah sarvam.' The reason is that if any speciality appears in the world and we regard it as the Lord's speciality, naturally we shall be attracted towards God rather than towards that thing or person. Attraction or attachment to matter leads to bondage—'karanam gunasahgo'sya sadasadyonijanntasu' (Gita 13/21). Therefore the purpose of the description of the divine glories is that a striver may get rid of the notion of the existence of the world, the value of the world and the lovability of the world and may realize `Vasudevah sarvan which is the main aim of the gospel of the Gita. Existence of the world, its value and attachment to it, lead a men to bondage. If a man instead of being attracted towards the world, and instead of having the notion to enjoy pleasures out of it, regards it as the manifestation of God, then the assumption of the existence of the world, its value and attachment to it, will be renounced and he will accept the existence of God, he will value Him and will be attached to Him viz., will love Him.
