Link:—The Lord, answers Arjuna's question, in the next verse pertaining to the superiority of worshippers who worship God with attributes, and those who worship, attributeless God.
mayyavesya mano ye mam nityayukta upasate
Sraddhaya parayopetaste me yuktatams match
The Blessed Lord said:-
Those who, fixing their mind on Me, worship Me ever steadfast and are endowed with supreme faith, are the most perfect Yogis, in My opinion. 2
[Lord Krsna explained this fact of his own accord without being asked in the forty-seventh verse of the sixth chapter, but Arjuna could not understand it (verdict). So he put this question, in the first verse of this chapter. Similarly, strivers on account of not having keen desire and curiosity do not understand the spiritual teaching imparted in religious discourses by the saints and the scriptures as it was told in a general way not as an answer to a specific question. Therefore they disregard them though general impression remains but if they have a keen desire to know it, they pay special attention and listen to it, with faith and also study the scriptures carefully. Therefore, strivers should listen to religious discourses and study the scriptures carefully, considering these as meant for them and translate those teachings into practice.]
Mayyevesya mano ye mam nityayukta upasate:- When a person's mind, is concentrated, he thinks automatically of persons or object he loves.
The expression 'Nityayuktah (ever steadfast or earnest), means that the striver himself should remain absorbed in God, by thinking, "only God is mine and I am only of God." When a striver has a firm resolve (aim), to realize God, his mind and intellect automatically, get absorbed in Him. On the other hand, if his aim is not God-realization, his mind and intellect cannot be absorbed in Him, in spite of, his best efforts. Mind and intellect, are the instruments which remain under the control, of the agent. So, when a striver himself gets absorbed in Him, the mind and the intellect, automatically get absorbed in Him.
A striver, commits an error, when he instead of getting absorbed himself practises to concentrate his mind and intellect on Him. So, there is a general complaint, that strivers' mind and intellect do not get absorbed in Him. Through the concentration of mind and intellect he can attain the state of a trance, but he cannot realize God. God-realization is possible only, if be himself, gets absorbed in Him.
