Bhagavad Gita: Always fixed in devotion (Attaining the Supreme,Text 27, Chapter 8)

Sri-bhagavan uvaca

naite srti partha janam
yogi muhyati kascana
tasmat sarvesu kalesu
yoga-yukto bhavarjuna

   (Attaining the Supreme, Text 27, Chapter 8)

Meaning: Although the devotees know these two paths (According to Vedic opinion, there are two ways of passing from this world-one in light and one in darkness.When one passes in light, he does not come back; but when one passes in darkness, he returns), O Arjuna, they are never bewildered. Therefore be always fixed in devotion.

*** Krsna is here advising Arjuna that he should not be disturbed by the different paths the soul can take when leaving the material world. A devotee of the Supreme Lord should not worry whether he will depart by arrangement or by accident. One should be unattached in material affairs and do everything in Krsna(divine) consciousness.By this system, which is called yukta-vairagya, one attains perfection. Therefore the devotee is not disturbed by these descriptions, because he knows that his passage to the supreme abode is guaranteed by devotional service.
