Verse 9.34 Raja Yoga (Constant Remembrance & Devotion)
man-mana bhava mad-bhakto mad-yaji mam namaskuru
mam evaisyasi yuktvaivam atmanam mat-parayanah
Always thinking of Me, become devoted to Me; having thus absorbed thy whole self with Me, taking Me as the Supreme Goal, thou shalt verily come unto Me
The words man mana means be always conscious of Lord Krishna. This means one’s consciousness should always be focused on Him as a continuous stream of thought. The Supreme Lord of all, the sole abode of all excellence, devoid of any fault, the omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent One of indomitable will. The Supreme Lord Krishna, the sole source, the sole cause and the sole origin of all creation, who is Parabrahman the supreme manifestation
Furthemore one should be mad bhakto or have their consciousness permeated with unadulterated love for the Supreme Lord as their beloved friend. Then one should become maj yaji or the Lord’s devoted worshiper taking great delight in their intimate and individual relationship with the Supreme Lord internally. Yaja denoting yagna indicates all the myriad of sublime ways of offering bhakti or loving devotion unto the Lord.
Mat-parayanah means one who has totally surrendered to the Supreme Lord. Who accepts the Supreme Lord as their only shelter and refuge and who can not live independent of Him, depending completely on Him. Thus disciplining the consciousness in one pointed focus so that everything one does is directly related to the Supreme Lord one should guide their consciousness in such a way that it can revel and delight in personal communion with the Supreme Lord at every moment. This Constant Remembrance of the Lord is the acme of all spiritual pursuit. Possessed of such a wonderfully evolved spiritualized consciousness thou shalt most assuredly attain the Supreme Lord without fail. The word atma used here denotes the consciousness beyond the mind.
The import of this verse is that if a person prepares and develops their consciousness to meditate on the Supreme Lord, to render loving service to the Supreme Lord, to delight in communion with the Supreme Lord, to surrender in humble homage to the Supreme Lord, then putting their full trust to Him alone they will undoubtedly attain Him.
