।।18.56।।मेरा आश्रय लेनेवाला भक्त सदा सब कर्म करता हुआ भी मेरी कृपासे शाश्वत अविनाशी पदको प्राप्त हो जाता है।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

The Supreme Lord Krishna is now concluding the topic of obtaining moksa by taking full refuge in the Supreme Lord even while performing prescribed Vedic activities daily and occasionally. Even if one still has the residue of desires while performing such activities but take sole refuge in the Supreme Lord not seeking mundane material gains from the demigods and not striving for entry into the heavenly planets. Such an aspirant will receive the grace of the Supreme Lord and by their exclusive devotion to Him and attain His eternal association in the transcendental spiritual worlds.

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Concluding this theme Lord Krishna again reiterates the performance of sadhana or internal propitiation. One should take complete shelter in Him offering Him all actions ordained in the Vedic scriptures. It should not be misconstrued that one can offer actions that are not sanctioned by the Vedic scriptures for that would be an abomination. Only demons and the most degraded of living entities would devilishly conspire to contrive such a travesty. In the phrase sarva-karmany api meaning all types of activities, the conjunction api meaning although denotes that without surrender and devotion to the Supreme Lord no actions should be offered to Him.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

All prescribed Vedic activities even the ones that are performed out of kamya or craving a result, if offered as worship of the Supreme Lord with full faith in Him understanding that He alone is the Supreme controller will inevitably attain the Supreme state of eternal communion with Lord Krishna which is sasvatam timeless and avyayam infinte.
