Gita : Ch-12. Introduction-3.



Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :

Chapter-12. ( Bhakti-yogam)

Introduction-3.


This chapter confirms that propitiation to the Supreme Lord Krishna is superior to the unmanifest, impersonal and imperishable brahmam or the spiritual substratum pervading all existence.

Here Lord Krishna outlines the procedure of performing it.

The procedure itself becomes the means for moksa or liberation from material existence.

All who propitiate the brahman will also achieve moksa after having all their desires fulfilled.

In the Agni section of the Sama Veda it states:

Propitiating that which is superior to the eternal and beginningless brahman one achieves moksa from samsara or the endless cycle of birth and death.

The words aksharam avyaktam refer to the indestructible, unmanifest supreme absolute or brahmam whose steadfast worship eventually releases one from all constraints.

So great is the result of propitiation in reference to this as revealed in the Vedas.

Those who worship the goddess Sri Laksmi with four arms and hands, ever young, ever content, resplendent as the eternal consort of the Supreme Lord in the spiritual worlds being His sakti or spiritual feminine potency in the material worlds, endowed with the wealth of wisdom; such a being is blessed by the two-fold form of the Supreme Lord which manifest themselves both externally as an experience and internally within one's heart.
