Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

In this verse the Supreme Lord Krishna reveals the ultimate secret which is the essence of the Vedic scripture and all spiritual scriptures. The spiritually motivated being who performs actions for Lord Krishna, who has Lord Krishna as their only goal, who are devoted to Him exclusively, who bears and commits no malice to any living entity such a being is able to attain the Supreme Lord and no other. Thus the Supreme Lord Krishna showed His visvarupa or divine universal form to His devotee which is extremely rarely seen even by the demigods after millions of penances and austerities.

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

The conclusion of all Vedic scriptures and goal of all Vedic teachings is now being revealed by Lord Krishna. The words mad-bhaktah mean exclusive loving devotion. The study of the Vedas, performing rituals, giving in charity, practicing austerities etc as given in verse 48 was in reference to seeing the thousand armed visvarupa or divine universal form. The same instructions were given in verse 53 in reference to seeing Lord Krishnas transcendental saccidananda form of eternal existence, unlimited cognisance and endless bliss. Here Lord Krishna specifies that by bhakti in dedicating all ones actions to Him, performing devotion to Him, making Him the ultimate goal of ones life without emnity towards any living entity is the method by which one can ultimately attain Him and all other activities Vedic activities must be accompanied by exclusive loving devotion unto Him.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

The words mat-karma-krt means those who dedicate their lives to Lord Krishna. They study the Vedas, engage in meditation, carry out rituals of propitiation, perform penance and other spiritual activities of this nature; but all their activities are exclusively for the satisfaction of the Supreme Lord. The words mat-paramah means those who make Lord Krishna their ultimate shelter and goal of attainment towards which every effort they make is directed. The words mad-bhaktah means Lord Krishnas loving devotee to whom everything revolves around out of so much love for Him that one is unable to exist without always reflecting, remembering, meditating, serving, worshipping and praising Him etc. in one continuous flow without cessation. The words sanga-varjitah means weaned from worldly attachments due to one having total attachment to the Supreme Lord. The words nirvairah sarva-bhutesu means bearing no enmity towards any living being and successfully arises from three-fold considerations. Lord Krishnas devotees only happiness is being in communion with Him and His devotees only misery is when they are not in communion with Him. Hence they are unattached to all other living beings. Lord Krishnas devotees attribute all their difficulties and afflictions simply as a reaction to their own past actions. Hence they have no reason to hate any being for it. Lord Krishnas devotees have implicit faith that all living entities are subject to His sovereign rule and are under His complete control. Hence whatever comes on its own according to providence is independently occurring and not subject to anyones motive. Thinking in this enlightened way Lord Krishnas devotees are exempt from all enmity and possessing all these attributes are able to qualify themselves to come to Him. The words mam eti mean comes unto me which denotes that one will realise Lord Krishna as He is and join in communion with Him in their perfected spiritual body which is the actual goal resulting from developing ones spiritual qualities.
