Bhagavad Gita Chapter 11 Verse 55

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 11 श्लोक 55

मत्कर्मकृन्मत्परमो मद्भक्तः सङ्गवर्जितः।
निर्वैरः सर्वभूतेषु यः स मामेति पाण्डव।।11.55।।

English Translation - Swami Gambirananda

11.55 O son of Pandu, he who works for Me, accepts Me as the supreme Goal, is devoted to Me, is devoid of attachment and free from enmity towards all beings-he attains Me.

English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

11.55 Whosoever performs all acts like the study of the Vedas described above, considering them as several modes of worship, he works for Me. He who looks upon Me as the highest, namely, one to whom I alone am the highest purpose in all his enterprises, has Me as the highest end. He who is devoted to me, i.e., is greatly devoted to me and hence unable to sustain himself without reciting My names, praising Me, meditating upon Me, worshipping Me, saluting Me etc., he who performs these always considering Me as the supreme end - he is My devotee. He is free from attachments, as he is attached to me alone, and is therefore unable to have attachment to any other entity. He who is without hatred towards any being, is one who fulfils all the following conditions: his nature is to feel pleasure or pain solely on account of his union or separation from Me; he considers his own sins to be the cause of his sufferings (and not the work of others); he is confirmed in his faith that all beings are dependent on the Parama-purusa. For all these reasons he has no hatred for any one.
