Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7 Verse 18

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 7 श्लोक 18

उदाराः सर्व एवैते ज्ञानी त्वात्मैव मे मतम्।
आस्थितः स हि युक्तात्मा मामेवानुत्तमां गतिम्।।7.18।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी रामसुख दास जी ( भगवद् गीता 7.18)

।।7.18।।पहले कहे हुए सबकेसब भक्त बड़े उदार (श्रेष्ठ भाववाले) हैं। परन्तु ज्ञानी (प्रेमी) तो मेरा स्वरूप ही है ऐसा मेरा मत है। कारण कि वह युक्तात्मा है और जिससे श्रेष्ठ दूसरी कोई गति नहीं है ऐसे मेरेमें ही दृढ़ आस्थावाला है।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

The question may arise that do the other three classes being the artta or afflicted, the artharthi or those desiring wealth and the jijnasuh or those desiring self realisation have to undergo transmigration and reincarnation? The answer is never. This is confirmed by Lord Krishna using the word udarah meaning noble and magnanimous. All these noble beings obtain moksa or liberation from the cycle of birth and death in the material existence; but the jnani or knower of God is His very atma or soul. This is because the jnani with his mind fixed solely upon the Supreme Lord, has taken complete refuge in Him alone as the only goal other than which there is nothing superior. So such a realised being is interested in no other purpose then attaining the Supreme Lord and thus devotes all there efforts for this.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Due to the fact that the previous four classes all resort to the Supreme Lord, they are all noble and udarah or magnanimous inasmuch as when they receive any benediction from Him it is as by their loving act of acceptance that the Supreme Lord feels bliss and is truly grateful to them for accepting His love. Lord Krishna considers the jnani or the knower of God as dear to Him as His own self and considers even that His very existence depends upon them. One may question how is this to be understood? One must understand that the Supreme Lord reciprocates in the same manner as His devotee acts towards Him. Thus in the same way that His devotee cannot live without Him, He cannot live without His devotee. Therefore His devotee atma or soul realised is His very life as the atma.
