Gita : Ch-12. Slo-6 & 7. Discussion-2.

Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :
 Chapter-12. ( Bhakti-yogam)
 Slokam-s -  6 & 7.

 ye  tu  sarvani  karmani  mayi sanyasya matparah, 
ananyenaiva yogena  mam dhyayanta upasate.
 tu  ye  =  but  one  who;
 sarvani  karmani  =  all  karma-s;
 mayi  sanyasya  =  submit / surrender  unto  Me;
 mat-parah  =  being  unto  Me  as  the  Supreme  Goal;
 ananyena  eva  yogena  =  without  distraction,  fixing  his  mind,  on  that  goal  only;
 mam dhyayanta upasate  =  meditate  that  Supreme  goal;

 teṣham aham samuddharta  mṛtyusamsarasagarat,
bhavami na cirat partha  mayyavesitacetasam.
mayi  avesita   cetasam  =   who  have  their  manovrutti  completely  based  on  Me;
   tesham  =  for  them;
 partha!  aham  =  hey  arjuna!  I;
 na  cirat  =  without  delay;
 mṛtyu-samsara-sagarat  =  from  the  ocean  of  life  and  death;
 samuddharta  bhavami  =  I  give  liberation  ( from  the  ocean  of  samsaram)  to  them.


The conclusion is that by continuously offering their hearts and minds in uninterrupted bhakti or exclusive loving devotion to the Supreme Lord Krishna, He becomes indebted to them so much so that He personally goes and rescues them from samsara, the perpetual cycle of birth and death and promotes them to the immortal spiritual worlds to eternally share in exclusive blissful communion with Him.

Actions are of two types.
One is worldly activities undertaken to maintain and progress the material existence of the physical body such as obtaining food and shelter and material development.
The other is spiritual activities enjoined by the injunctions of the Vedic scriptures such as propitiation to the Supreme Lord, absence of violence to any living being, charity, etc. in short every act without an ulterior motive and without a hopeful gain.

Whosoever being spiritual minded without any motive except for satisfying the Supreme Lord Krishna and without any desire of seeking anything in return from Him, who offer all their activities as devotion to Him, keeping Him alone as their sole goal and in one-pointed devotion focus their meditation on Him fully while worshipping Him in all their activities such as chanting His holy names, glorifying Him, offering prayers to Him, prostrating before His deity form, hearing about His lilas or divine pastimes, enlightening others about His glories, etc. as the be all and end all of all existence itself.
