Gita : Ch-12. Slo-8. Discussion-1.



Srimad  Bhagavad-Gita :
Chapter-12. ( Bhakti-yogam )
Slokam-8. ( Just fix your mind upon Me, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, and engage all your intelligence in Me. Thus you will live in Me always, without a doubt.)

mayyeva   mana   adhatsva  mayi  buddhim  nivesaya,

nivasisyasi  mayyeva  ata  urdhvam  na  samsayah.

mayi  eva  mana   adhatsva  =  fix  your  mind  unto  Me;
mayi  buddhim  nivesaya  =  fix  your  intellect  unto  Me;
ata  urdhvam  =  thereafter;
mayi  eva  nivasisyasi  =  you  will  live / stay  in  Me;
samsayah  na  =  no  doubt  at  all.

Discussion-1.

The Supreme Lord Krishna Himself is the savior of His surrendered devotees who exclusively perform bhakti or loving devotion to Him.

He rescues them from samsara or the perpetual cycle of birth and death devouring all in material existence and bestows upon them His own nature of endless bliss.

Here Lord Krishna is instructing Arjuna to act as His devotees do.

By focusing His mind on the Supreme Lord alone, which is the most auspicious abode for the mind, He is adored and beloved by His devotees and the Lord of all lords.

One should establish their intellect decisively and resolve in their mind that the Supreme Lord Krishna is the paramount object of worship and the ultimate goal to be attained.

With the mind and intellect absorbed in the Supreme Lord one will certainly abide with Him in His eternal spiritual abode at the end of this flickering physical existence along with countless  others of similar determination and sharing in communion with Him will not be separated from the Supreme Lord ever again.
