Gita : Ch-10. Slo-7.

Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :

Chapter-10. ( Vibhuthi-yogam )

Slokam-7. ( He who knows in truth this glory and power of Mine engages in unalloyed devotional service; of this there is no doubt.)

etam   vibhutim   yogam  ca  mama   yo  vetthi   tattvatah,

sovikambena  yogena  yujyate  natra  samsayah.

mama  etam  vibhutim  =  My  this  Vibhuti  too  (  samashti-prapancha-pratibhasam );

yagam  ca  =  yaga too  ( vrshti-bhavam );

tattvatah  =  by  tattvam  ( truly /actually);

yah  vetthi  sah  =  who  knows  this,  he;

avikambena  yogena  =  in  steady  yogam  ( in  Paramatma-anubhuthi  / bliss / realisation );

yujyate  =  attains  full,   permanent, engaged /established;

atra  samsayah  na  =  in  this  no  doubt  at  all. 

Now Lord Krishna speaks on the benefits of knowing Him in reality as the great sages spoken previously do, as the Supreme transcendental majestic Lord of all.

This is stated with the words yo vetti tattvatah meaning those who know in truth, regarding His transcendental potencies and divine opulence and how they manifest, direst and sustain the whole creation.

Such one's like the great sages will undoubtedly become established in undeviating yoga or the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the Ultimate Consciousness of the Supreme Lord.

The method by which one's aspirations are made available is known as equanimity.

The equanimity of the Supreme Lord is also known as sakti or power.

A special manifestation of this sakti is called vibhuti or supernatural opulence.

To attain this yogam or the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the ultimate consciousness of the Supreme Lord is also a manifestation of vibhuti.

The result of actual knowledge about the glory, majesty and power of the Supreme Lord Krishna that has been expounded as well as rendering bhakti or loving devotion to Him is that one attains undeviating realization of His supreme absolute position and all that is related to it.

There is no doubt about this.

The word vibhuti means transcendental potencies of majestic opulence such as displayed in all of the phenomenal activities manifest in creation, preservation and sustenance and all of the wondrous workings of unlimited universes.

The word yogam or the science of the individual consciousness attaining communion with the ultimate consciousness denotes the consensus of all glorious attributes with the exemption of all that is evil and unrighteous.

Whosoever comprehensively understands the preceding and realises the Supreme Lord Krishna through these two components of His character being vibhuti and yoga will succeed in acquiring unwavering and rapt bhakti or exclusive loving devotion.

This means that the knowledge of respecting and honouring His vibhuti and yoga by observing, pondering and reflecting how they manifest and operate as phenomenal material activities and divine attributes will assist and facilitate the awakening of bhakti and this can be practically experienced by all who think of Lord Krishna in this way.

Next will be explained how the development of bhakti is a direct result of knowledge of Lord Krishna's vibhuti.

Chapter-5. ( Karma-sanyasa-yogam )

Slokam-27 & 28. (  Shutting out all external sense objects, keeping the eyes and vision concentrated between the two eyebrows, suspending the inward and outward breaths within the nostrils—thus controlling the mind, senses and intelligence, the tranecendentalist becomes free from desire, fear and anger. One who is always in this state is certainly liberated.)
