श्रीमद् भगवद्गीता

मूल श्लोकः

अभ्यासयोगयुक्तेन चेतसा नान्यगामिना।

परमं पुरुषं दिव्यं याति पार्थानुचिन्तयन्।।8.8।।


English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary By Swami Adidevananda

8.8 Contemplating on Me, the Supreme Divine Person, in the way to be specified further, at the last moment, with a mind trained by constant practice and Yoga, and not moving towards anything else, one reaches Me alone, i.e., attains a form similar to that of Mine, by virtue of the attributes of enjoyment and the prosperity contemplated upon, like the royal sage Bharata who acired the form of a deer on account of contemplating on it at the last moment. Abhyasa is the training of the mind to be often in touch with the object of meditation at all times without obstruction to the performance of the prescribed periodical and occasional rituals. Yoga is the meditation practised day by day at the time of Yoga practice in the manner prescribed.
