iti kṣhetraṁ tathā jñānaṁ jñeyaṁ choktaṁ samāsataḥ
mad-bhakta etad vijñāya mad-bhāvāyopapadyate
iti—thus; kṣhetram—the nature of the field; tathā—and; jñānam—the meaning of knowledge; jñeyam—the object of knowledge; cha—and; uktam—revealed; samāsataḥ—in summary; mad-bhaktaḥ—my devotees; etat—this; vijñāya—having understood; mad-bhāvāya—my divine nature; upapadyate—attain
Thus briefly have been set forth the Field and also knowledge and the object of knowledge. My devotee who understands this becomes worthy of My state.
Madbhakta etad vijnaya: It is clear from this that no one, unless he is the devotee of Lord, can attain that knowledge which makes him fit to become one with the Supreme Being. It is only from the flower of devotion that the fruit of knowledge grows. Therefore every seeker has to acquire God’s grace and Guru’s benediction by virtuous acts, by worship, by japa, tapas, by singing the name and glory of the Lord and by following all the aids to pure devotion. Then, out of compassion, He bestows on His Bhakta the ‘buddhiyoga‘ which enables him to distinguish the kshetra and kshetrajna. This knowledge leads him to become one with Paramatma (Madbhavaya). One may become a great scholar of the Sastras and Sciences, but he cannot obtain knowledge of the Divine if there is no devotion. Learning and realisation are entirely different. They are poles apart. Let the seekers move forward on the path of devotion, and let them gradually gain the intellectual purity to understand the final Truth. Moksha is the fruit of perfect knowledge of the kshetra and kshetrajna. And this knowledge is offered to the true devotee by the Lord Himself.
Question: Who attains union with God, Moksha?
Answer: He who knows the ‘Kshetra’ and ‘Kshetrajna’.
Question: Who can obtain this knowledge?
Answer: Only the true devotee of the Lord.
