cetasā sarvakarmāṇi mayi sannyasya matparaḥ
buddhiyogamupāśritya maccittaḥ satataṁ bhava
Mentally dedicating all actions to Me, having Me as the ultimate goal, resorting to Yoga of equanimity, fix your mind constantly on Me.
In the preceding verse the Lord having declared the attainment of the eternal imperishable state, now tells the method of how to attain that state. For an aspirant there are two important duties-- to renounce the relationship with the world and to accept the relationship with God. In the term 'madvyapāśrayaḥ' used in the preceding verse, there is predominance of accepting the relationship with God; while in this verse in the term 'buddhiyogamupāśritya' there is predominance of renunciation of affinity with the world. By contemplation solely on God, the relationship with world is abandoned and automatically one attains equanimity. Contemplation on God is possible only when one accepts 'I am God's only'-- the feeling of mineness with God will come. With the coming of sense of mineness with God, the mind automatically will be engaged in God.
All livings beings always have the relationship with God. The existence of this relationship is forgotten due to assumed relationship with the world. To remove the forgetfulness of relationship with Him, the Lord says-- always fix your mind on Me.
