Bhagavad Gita Chapter 18 Verse 57

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 18 श्लोक 57

चेतसा सर्वकर्माणि मयि संन्यस्य मत्परः।
बुद्धियोगमुपाश्रित्य मच्चित्तः सततं भव।।18.57।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी रामसुख दास जी ( भगवद् गीता 18.57)

।।18.57।।चित्तसे सम्पूर्ण कर्म मुझमें अर्पण करके? मेरे परायण होकर तथा समताका आश्रय लेकर निरन्तर मुझमें चित्तवाला हो जा।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Renunciation factually means surrendering all thoughts and actions unto the Supreme Lord Krishna, regarding Him as the highest attainment, most important reality, the very essence of ones life and the actual purpose of existence. Resorting to yoga or facilitating communion with the Supreme Lord by discrimination of spiritual intelligence while performing activities in every aspect of life one fixes their mind in devotion to the Supreme Lord Krishna exclusively. In this way every activity is an oblation of devotion unto the Supreme Lord.

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna confirms in this verse that those devotees who are versed in karma yoga or facilitating communion with the Supreme Lord by actions, bhakti yoga or facilitating communion with the Supreme Lord by exclusive loving devotion, jnana yoga or facilitating communion with the Supreme Lord by knowledge and those who although not so expert have anyway fully surrendered to Him are on the same platform there is no difference if all ordained actions are offered with a feeling of surrender solely to Him. Such consciousness will also cause a modification in the cessation of random thought waves that arise uninvited. The equanimity of the intellect means control of the mind and snses.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna and His manifestations are constantly in the thoughts of His devotees in His impersonal form as the brahman or spiritual substratum pervading all existence, as paramatma the Supreme Soul pervading within the etheric hearts of all living entities simultaneously and in His original two armed blackish form bedecked with peacock feather and attended by flute as well as in His authorised incarnations and expansions. Dedicating all efforts and actions unto the Supreme Lord with devotion considering Him as the sole goal and ultimate reward constitutes the essence of consciousness and the apex of attainment.
