ये तु सर्वाणि कर्माणि मयि संन्यस्य मत्परः |
अनन्येनैव योगेन मां ध्यायन्त उपासते ||१२-६||


ye tu sarvāṇi karmāṇi mayi saṃnyasya matparaḥ .
ananyenaiva yogena māṃ dhyāyanta upāsate ||12-6||



12.6. On the other hand, those who, having renounced all their actions in Me, have Me [alone] their goal; and revere Me, meditating on Me by that Yoga alone, which admits no other element but Me in it;

Shri Purohit Swami

12.6 Verily, those who surrender their actions to Me, who muse on Me, worship Me and meditate on Me alone, with no thought save of Me,

Sri Abhinav Gupta

12.6 See Comment under 12.8

Sri Ramanuja

12.6 - 12.7 But those who, with a mind ‘focused on Me,’ the Supreme Self, and ‘intent upon Me,’ namely, holding Me as their sole object, dedicating to Me all their actions - i.e., including all worldly actions like eating which are meant for supporting the body, as also Vedic rites like sacrifices, gifts, fire-offerings, austerities etc., generally done by worldly-minded people for other purposes - worship Me and meditate on Me with exclusive devotion, namely, with devotion without any other purpose, adoring Me by all such acts as meditation, worship, prostration, praises and hymns which are by themselves exceedingly dear to them and are eal to the end itself - to these I become soon their saviour from the sea of Samsara which, on account of its being antagonistic to the attainment of Myself, is deadly.

Sri Shankaracharya

That (yoga) is single-minded which has no other object than the Cosmic Deity, the Self. By thinking exclusively with that single-minded [The Ast. and the A.A. read ‘kena, what?’ in place of ‘kevalena, exclusively’.-Tr.] (yoga)-. What comes to them?
