Commentary

Having stressed bhakti, the path of devotion, throughout this chapter, Shree Krishna now concludes it by entreating Arjun to become his devotee. He asks Arjun to unite his consciousness with God in true Yog, by worshipping him, engaging the mind in meditation upon his divine form, and offering obeisance in pure humility to him.

Namaskuru (the act of humble obeisance) effectively neutralizes vestiges of egotism that may arise in the performance of devotion. Thus, free from pride, with the heart immersed in devotion, one should dedicate all one’s thoughts and actions to the Supreme. Shree Krishna assures Arjun that such complete communion with him through bhakti yog will definitely result in the attainment of God-realization; of this, there should be no doubt.
