Gita Chapter 10 – (Gita 10:7 through 11)
What do You mean when You say that discrimination, wisdom and sages etc., emanate from You alone ?
He who assumes this supreme glory and supernatural power of mine firmly with faith gets established in Me through unfaltering devotion, there is no doubt about this. (Gita 10:7)
What is the this firm, unfaltering belief / devotion ?
I am the orgin of all creation; everything in the world moves because of Me. Beliving this firmly, the wise, full of devotion and faith, worship Me alone. (Gita 10:8)
What is the method of their worship, O Lord?
With their mind fixed on Me, with their lives surrendered to Me, enlightening one another about My greatness and speaking of Me, they ever remain contented and have devotion for only Me. (Gita 10:9)
How do you respond to the devotional activities of such devotees ?
To those who are ever devout and worship Me with love, I confer to them out of My own will, that Yoga of wisdom (equanimity) by which they attain Me. (Gita 10:10)
Do you also confer anything else on them?
Yes, in order to shower My grace on them, I, dwelling in their hearts, entirely dispel the darkness born of ignorance by the luminous lamp of wisdom. (Gita 10:11)
