Yogis Worship the Supersoul
isvarah sarva-bhutanam hrd-dese ‘rjuna tisthati
bhramayan sarva-bhutani yantrarudhani mayaya
The Supreme Lord is situated in every one’s heart, O Arjuna, and is directing the wanderings of all living entities who are seated as on a machine made of material energy. (Bhagavad-gita 18.61)
atha va bahunaitena kim jnatena tavarjuna
vistabhyaham idam krtsnam ekamsena sthito jagat
What need is there, O Arjuna, for all this detailed knowledge? With a single fragment of Myself, I pervade and support this entire universe. (Bhagavad-gita 10.42)
mayadhyaksena prakrtih suyate sa-caracaram
hetunanena kaunteya jagad viparivartate
Material nature, which is one of My energies, is working under My direction, O son of Kunti, and produces all moving and non-moving beings. Under its rule, this manifestation is created and annihilated again and again. (Bhagavad-gita 9.10)
aham hi sarva-yajnanam bhokta ca prabhur eva ca
na tu mam abhijananti tattvenatas cyavanti te
I am the only enjoyer and master of all sacrifices. Those who do not recognize My true transcendental position fall down. (Bhagavad-gita 9.24)

न हि ज्ञानेन सदृशं पवित्रमिह विद्यते ।
तत्स्वयं योगसंसिद्धः कालेनात्मनि विन्दति ॥

भावार्थ : इस संसार में ज्ञान के समान पवित्र करने वाला निःसंदेह कुछ भी नहीं है। उस ज्ञान को कितने ही काल से कर्मयोग द्वारा शुद्धान्तःकरण हुआ मनुष्य अपने-आप ही आत्मा में पा लेता है॥38॥

In this world, there is nothing so sublime and pure as transcendental knowledge. Such knowledge is the mature fruit of all mysticism. And one who has achieved this enjoys the self within himself in due course of time.


When we speak of transcendental knowledge, we do so in terms of spiritual understanding. As such, there is nothing so sublime and pure as transcendental knowledge. Ignorance is the cause of our bondage, and knowledge is the cause of our liberation. This knowledge is the mature fruit of devotional service, and when one is situated in transcendental knowledge, he need not search for peace elsewhere, for he enjoys peace within himself. In other words, this knowledge and peace are culminated in Krsna consciousness. That is the last word in the Bhagavad-gita.
