Knowledge Of God Improves One’s Devotion To Him

एतां विभूतिं योगं च मम यो वेत्ति तत्त्वत: |
सोऽविकम्पेन योगेन युज्यते नात्र संशय: || 10.7||

etāṁ vibhūtiṁ yogaṁ cha mama yo vetti tattvataḥ
so ’vikampena yogena yujyate nātra sanśhayaḥ|| 10.7||

Shloka Translation
BG – Ch. 10- Ver. 7:

Without a doubt, whomever comprehends this, my manifestation, and yoga in its essence becomes involved with undisturbed yoga.


The enormous shaktis (powers) of God unfolding in the universe are referred to as vibhti. God’s connection with these marvellous powers is referred to as yogam. Shree Krishna reveals in just this verse that when we become aware of the Supreme Lord’s splendour and convinced of his glory, we are naturally drawn to engage in his devotion.
The devotees’ love is nourished and their devotion is enhanced when they are aware of God’s greatness. Knowledge and love are inextricably linked; a thorough understanding of God increases devotion to him.

As a result of describing God’s great splendours as manifested in the amazing workings of infinite universes, Shree Krishna claims that individuals who become situated in this knowledge naturally become joined with him through unshakable bhakti.

Verse & what we can learn

“Avikampena yoga,” or a continual, unbreakable connection with Ishvara, is achieved when one can experience Ishvara as manifested via expressions. Ishvara’s multifarious or pluralistic manifestation, the existence of Ishvara in all forms present in the universe, is referred to as Vibhooti. Yoga, also known as yoga-maaya, is the force that allows for this pluralistic expression. According to Shri Krishna, whoever understands this vibhooti and yoga as emanating from Ishvara is always linked with Ishvara.

Instead of being distracted by the form, the objective is to build a vision that delves into the essence of anything, person, or circumstance. Ishvara created the seven sages, implying that he is both the “material” and the “sculptor.” He is the intelligent and material cause of those sages. So, if our thoughts are made of Ishvara, our things are made of Ishvara, our situations are made of Ishvara, what will happen to us if we develop this vision?

We’ll develop an unbreakable, unyielding link with Ishvara. In other words, if we understand that Ishvara is present in everything, we will never be cut off from Ishvara, just as our cell phones will never be cut off from their network no matter where we go in the country. We shall be able to deal with any event in life with calm and equanimity, and will not be shaken.

To acquire knowledge and to implement that knowledge in life one needs to be mentally and physically active and healthy and for that daily meditation is a great tool.

There are various types of meditation like Buddhist meditation, heartfulness meditation, mindfulness meditation, meditation for stress, and each meditation benefits are countless. There is also numerous meditation techniques for beginners which help in practicing daily meditation so go ahead and start your journey towards a peaceful and balanced life.

In the next Shloka Shri Krishan tells Arjuna about this state of unwavering yoga.
