The Lord has given Arjuna knowledge that is conï¬dential (knowledge of Brahman) and still more conï¬dential (knowledge of the Supersoul within everyoneâs heart), and now He is giving the most conï¬dential part of knowledge: just surrender unto the Supreme Personality of Godhead. At the end of the Ninth Chapter He has said, man-manÄá¸¥: âJust always think of Me.â The same instruction is repeated here to stress the essence of the teachings of Bhagavad-gÄ«tÄ. This essence is not understood by a common man, but by one who is actually very dear to Ká¹á¹£á¹a, a pure devotee of Ká¹á¹£á¹a. This is the most important instruction in all Vedic literature. What Ká¹á¹£á¹a is saying in this connection is the most essential part of knowledge, and it should be carried out not only by Arjuna but by all living entities.
