1. 21

    यो यो यां यां तनुं भक्तः श्रद्धयार्चितुमिच्छति । तस्य तस्याचलां श्रद्धां तामेव विदधाम्यहम् ॥ ७-२१॥

    Whichever form (of a deity) any devotee wants to worship with faith, that very firm faith of his I strengthen.

  2. 22

    स तया श्रद्धया युक्तस्तस्याराधनमीहते । लभते च ततः कामान्मयैव विहितान्हि तान् ॥ ७-२२॥

    Being imbued with that faith, that person engages in worshipping that form, and he gets those very desired results therefrom as they are ordained by Me alone.

  3. 23

    अन्तवत्तु फलं तेषां तद्भवत्यल्पमेधसाम् । देवान्देवयजो यान्ति मद्भक्ता यान्ति मामपि ॥ ७-२३॥

    But limited is the fruit gained by these men of small understanding. The worshippers of the gods will go to the gods but My devotees will come to Me.

  4. 24

    अव्यक्तं व्यक्तिमापन्नं मन्यन्ते मामबुद्धयः । परं भावमजानन्तो ममाव्ययमनुत्तमम् ॥ ७-२४॥

    The foolish think of Me, the Unmanifest, as having manifestation, knowing not My higher, immutable and most excellent nature.

  5. 25

    नाहं प्रकाशः सर्वस्य योगमायासमावृतः । मूढोऽयं नाभिजानाति लोको मामजमव्ययम् ॥ ७-२५॥

    Veiled by My Yoga-Maya, I am not manifest to all. This deluded world does not recognize Me as the unborn and immutable.
