1. 1

    श्रीभगवानुवाच । इदं तु ते गुह्यतमं प्रवक्ष्याम्यनसूयवे । ज्ञानं विज्ञानसहितं यज्ज्ञात्वा मोक्ष्यसेऽशुभात् ॥ ९-१॥

    Shri Bhagvan said However, to you who are not cavil, I shall speak of this highest secret itself, which is Knowledge [Gyana mean Bramh that is Consciousness, or Its knowledge gathered from the Vedas (paroksha-gyana). Vigyana is direct experience (aparoksha-gyana).] combined with experience, by realizing which you shall be free from evil.

  2. 2

    राजविद्या राजगुह्यं पवित्रमिदमुत्तमम् । प्रत्यक्षावगमं धर्म्यं सुसुखं कर्तुमव्ययम् ॥ ९-२॥

    This is the Sovereign Knowledge, the Sovereign Profundity, the supreme purifier ; directly realizable, righteous, very easy to practice and imperishable.

  3. 3

    अश्रद्दधानाः पुरुषा धर्मस्यास्य परन्तप । अप्राप्य मां निवर्तन्ते मृत्युसंसारवर्त्मनि ॥ ९-३॥

    O Parantapa (destroyer of foes), those who have no faith in this Dharma (knowledge of the Self), return to the path of this world of death without attaining Me.

  4. 4

    मया ततमिदं सर्वं जगदव्यक्तमूर्तिना । मत्स्थानि सर्वभूतानि न चाहं तेष्ववस्थितः ॥ ९-४॥

    This entire universe is pervaded by Me, in an unmanifest form. All beings abide in Me, but I do not abide in them.

  5. 5

    न च मत्स्थानि भूतानि पश्य मे योगमैश्वरम् । भूतभृन्न च भूतस्थो ममात्मा भूतभावनः ॥ ९-५॥

    And yet beings do not abide in Me. Behold My divine Yoga. I am the upholder of all beings and yet I am not in them. My will alone causes their existence.
