Bhagavad Gita Chapter 9 Verse 22

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 9 श्लोक 22

अनन्याश्िचन्तयन्तो मां ये जनाः पर्युपासते।
तेषां नित्याभियुक्तानां योगक्षेमं वहाम्यहम्।।9.22।।

English Translation - Swami Gambirananda

9.22 Those persons who, becoming non-different from Me and meditative, worship Me everywhere, for them, who are ever attached (to Me), I arrange for securing what they lack and preserving what they have.

English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

9.22 There are Mahatmas who, excluding everything else and having no other purpose, meditate on Me as their only purpose, because without Me they are unable to sustain themselves. They think of Me and worship Me with all my auspicious attributes and with all my glories. In the case of such devotees aspiring after eternal union with Me, I Myself undertake the responsibility of bringing them to Myself (Yoga translated as prosperity) and of preserving them in that state for ever (Ksema translated as welfare). The meaning is that they do not return to Samsara.
