Bhagavad Gita Chapter 18 Verse 69

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 18 श्लोक 69

न च तस्मान्मनुष्येषु कश्िचन्मे प्रियकृत्तमः।
भविता न च मे तस्मादन्यः प्रियतरो भुवि।।18.69।।

English Translation - Swami Gambirananda

18.69 And as compared with him, none else among human beings is the best accomplisher of what is dear to Me. Moreover, nor will there be anyone else in the world dearer to Me than he.

English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

18.69 There never exists nor has existed anyone other than such a person as described, who does greater service to Me than he. In the future too, there will not be another such. The first reference is to those who are not worthy to hear the Gita. It is meant to teach that explaining it to them is more displeasing to the Lord than not teaching to those who are worthy.
