12.7. Of them, having their mind completely entered in Me, I become, before long, a redeemer from the ocean of the death-cycle, O son of Prtha !

Shri Purohit Swami

12.7 O Arjuna! I rescue them from the ocean of life and death, for their minds are fixed on Me.

Sri Abhinav Gupta

12.7 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

12.7 O son of Prtha, tesam, for them who are solely devoted to meditating on Me; avesita-cetasam mayi, who have their minds absorbed in, fixed on, merged in, Me who am the Cosmic Person; aham, I, God; bhavami, become; na cirat, without delay;-what then? soon indeed-the samuddharta, Deliverer-. Wherefrom? In answer the Lord says, mrtyu-samsara-sagarat, from the sea of the world which is fraught with death. Samsara (world) fraught with mrtyu (death) is mrtyu-samsara. That itself is like a sea, being difficult to cross. I become their deliverer from that sea of transmigration which is fraught with death. Since this is so, therefore,

Swami Adidevananda

12.7 Of those whose minds are thus focused on Me, I become soon their saviour from the ocean of mortal life.

Swami Gambirananda

12.7 O son of Prtha, for them who have their minds absorbed in Me, I become, without delay, the Deliverer from the sea of the world which is fraught with death.

Swami Sivananda

12.7 To those whose minds are set on Me, O Arjuna, verily I become ere long the saviour out of the ocean of Samsara.


Swami Sivananda

12.7 तेषाम् for them? अहम् I? समुद्धर्ता the saviour? मृत्युसंसारसागरात् out of the ocean of the mortal Samsara? भवामि (I) become? नचिरात् ere long? पार्थ O Arjuna? मयि in Me? आवेशितचेतसाम् of those whose minds are set.Commentary Mortal Samsara The round of birth and death. The devotee who does total? unconditional? and ungrudging selfsurrender to the Lord? who places himself completely at the mercy of the Lord? and who fixes of actions by offering them to the Lord and who thus destroys any power in the actions to bear fruit? and who has abandoned even the idea of liberation? is soon lifted by the Lord from the mortal plane to the abode of Immortality.I redeem such persons who have become Macchitta i.e.? mind united with Me? from the ocean of the mortal world or worldly life? without delay. (Cf.X.10.11XII.6and7)
