Chapter XII of the Bhagavad Gita: Yoga of Devotion (Bhakti Yoga)

Fifteen first verses of this chapter of the Bhagavad Gita (Yoga Philosophy)

Arjuna said:

1. Among the devotees who thus worship Thou, incessantly attached to Thou, and those who worship the Imperishable Unmanifested, who are the best Yogis?

The Lord said:

2. Those whom I consider to be the best yogis are those who, fixing their minds on Me, always united with Me, worship Me with the highest faith.

3. But those who worship the Imperishable, the Indefinable, the Unmanifested, the Omnipresent, the Unthinkable, the immovable, the immutable and the eternal.

4. Keeping all the senses in check, balanced everywhere, absorbed in the well-being of all beings, they also come to Me.

5. Greater is the effort for those whose mind is fixed on the Unmanifest; because it is difficult for incarnated mortals to reach the Goal of the Unmanifest.

6. But those who dedicate all their actions to Me, making Me their all in all, worship Me with the Meditation of total devotion.

7. Of them whose thoughts are centered on Me, O Partha, I soon become the Liberator of the ocean of this world of death.

8. Fix your mind on Me, rest your conviction on Me; thus, without a doubt, you will remain only in Me in the hereafter.

9. If you cannot fix your mind constantly on Me, then by the method of constant practice of Yoga, seek to attain Me, O Dhananjaya.

10. If you also cannot follow the method of constant Yoga practice, concentrate on serving Me; By serving me thus, you will achieve perfection.

11. If you are incapable of even doing this, then dedicating everything to Me, with your mind controlled, abandon the fruit of action.

12. Better than practice is Knowledge, better than knowledge is concentration, better than concentration is the renunciation of the fruit of all action, peace comes directly from it.13. Who has no ill will towards anyone, who is friendly and compassionate, who has lost all thoughts of “mine" or “I" who considers pain and pleasure equally, who is long-suffering;

14. He who is content, devoted to yoga, self-disciplined, of firm conviction, who has dedicated his mind and reason to Me: that devotee (Bhakta) of Mine is loved by Me.

15. He who does not cause trouble to the world, to whom the world does not cause trouble, who is free from irritation, resentment, fear and vexation, that man is loved by Me
