Bhagavad Gita Chapter 18 Verse 62

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 18 श्लोक 62

तमेव शरणं गच्छ सर्वभावेन भारत।
तत्प्रसादात्परां शान्तिं स्थानं प्राप्स्यसि शाश्वतम्।।18.62।।

English Translation - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

18.62. To Him alone you must go for refuge with all your thought, O descendant of Bharata ! Through My Grace you will attain the success, the eternal abode.

English Translation of Commentary - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

18.61-62 Isvarah etc. Tam eva etc. This Lord, the Supreme Self, must be taken hold of as refuge. When that Supreme Ruler, the [real] Agent-of-all-actions, the [real] Knower, the very Self of your own, is reflected upon, there (in the heart) the [effects of] actions do not enjoy any locus standi. Indeed, the deer-calves which are of wavering mind [by nature] and are noted only for their power of running away to escape, do not take recourse to their skill in pursuing freely their [usual] activities while there dwells in the [nearby] cave a loin-calf, the glory of whose valour has been made evident by the accessories in the form of the heaps of pearls scattered from the elephants temples broken upon with the very sharp edges of his (lion-calfs) excellent claws. By the cocluding statement that commences To Him alone you must go for refuge and [runs] as Through My Grace etc., the Bhagavat indicates the Lord Supreme Self, and Vasudeva krsna to be identical.
