Bhagavad Gita Chapter 8 Verse 14

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 8 श्लोक 14

अनन्यचेताः सततं यो मां स्मरति नित्यशः।
तस्याहं सुलभः पार्थ नित्ययुक्तस्य योगिनः।।8.14।।

English Translation - Swami Gambirananda

8.14 O son of Prtha, to that yogi of constant concentration and single-minded attention, who remembers Me uninterruptedly and for long, I am easy of attainment.

English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

8.14 I am easy to access to that Yogin who is ever integrated with Me, i.e., who wants constant contact with Me, who recollects Me; and whose mind is not in anything else without break (Nityasah), i.e., at the time of meditation and also during all other times (Satatam). As I am exceedingly dear to him, he is unable to sustain himself without remembering Me and cherishing My memory which is incomparably dear to him. I am the only object he wants to attain and not any mode of My being like sovereignty, etc. I Myself grant him the capacity to attain full maturity in devotional practice necessary for attaining Me - namely, the annulment of all obstacles and the establishment of the state of mind that renders Me exceedingly dear to oneself. The Sruti also says: He whom this (Self) chooses, by him He can be obtained (Mun. U., 3.2.3 and Ka. U., 2.22). And Sri Krsna Himself will teach: To those, ceaselessly united, who worship Me, I bestow that discernment by which they come to Me. Out of mercy for them, I, abiding in their heart, dispel the darkness born of ignorance, by the brilliant lamp of knowledge (10.10;11). In the remaining part of this chapter, He teaches that the Jnanis and the aspirants after Kaivalya do not deturn, and that the seekers after power and prosperity return.
