  • A true yogi observes Me in all beings and also sees every being in Me.  Indeed, a self-realized person sees Me everywhere.  For one who sees Me everywhere and sees everything in Me, I am never lost, nor is he ever lost to me.

    Krishna:  Fix everything on Me, Arjuna.  Do not just work with the body and let the mind go elsewhere.  No, first fix your mind on Me.  Not like the servant of the king who renders service, but his mind is on his salary and his relatives.  No.  That is not the symptom of devotion.  So much service may be done, but the mind is the key and the test.  The mind must be fixed on the object of service. Therefore fix your mind on Me, and that thinking should be natural like honey which flows from a bottle. Fix the mind like that.  Become My devotee and worship Me, and then with love, offer your obeisances to Me. Being completly absorbed in Me, surely you will come to Me

    • thank you prabhu. i have got your answer, it was very well put. thank you and hari bol!!
