Lord Krsna, in the forty-sixth verse of the sixth chapter, described the glory of a Yogi and in the forty-seventh verse, He declared, "Of all Yogis, he, who devoutly worships Me, with his mind focussed on Me, is considered by Me, to be the most devout Yogi." When a devotee thinks of God, he gets absorbed in Him. Similarly when something concerning His devotee is discussed, God also becomes enraptured in it. In the same state of mind, also Lord Krsna, full of grace and affection for Arjuna, starts the seventh chapter on his own.
mayyasaktamanah partha yogam yunjarmtadasrayah
asamsayam samagram mam yatha jnasyasi tacchrnu
The Blessed Lord said:-
Listen, 0 Partha (Arjuna), how, with your mind attached to Me, and taking refuge in Me and practising Yoga, you will, without any doubt, know Me fully. 1
Mayyasaktamanah:—He, whose mind is attached to Me alone, has not to think of Me, but his mind always remains absorbed in Me. He is not, in the least, attached to the sensual pleasures of this world or the next world, and remains indifferent to comfort, name, fame and other, earthly or heavenly acquisitions. There are two means, by which mind may be attached to Him.
- A striver, who from his heart depending only on God, adores Him, his mind, by His grace is attached to Him. As a servant, in his master's house, even without doing any work as the master did not allot any work for him on a day gets payment, a devotee with the only aim to attach his mind to Him by depending upon Him, gets success in attaching his mind to Him, by His grace.
