Who is dearest to God?
न च तस्मान्मनुष्येषु कश्चिन्मे प्रियकृत्तम: |
भविता न च मे तस्मादन्य: प्रियतरो भुवि || 69||
na cha tasmān manuṣhyeṣhu kaśhchin me priya-kṛittamaḥ
bhavitā na cha me tasmād anyaḥ priyataro bhuvi
Bhagavad Gita Ch. 18; V 69
There is no other person, among the people who perform more dear service to Me. Also, there is no other person, in the world, who is more dear to Me, than such a devotee.
In the previous verses, Lord Krishna spoke about the ultimate techniques, to realize God and to achieve perfection and to attain that spiritual state, in which there is no more, fears or doubts or sufferings. He has also assured that such a person is dearest to Him. Also, any devotee passes on this heavenly most secret, spiritual instructions to any other. Similarly, a qualified devotee does a great service to God, which is dearest to God.
The Highest Spiritual Knowledge
Also, this most secret, highest spiritual knowledge should never be taught to persons who do not believe in God, are devoid of faith, are of negative attitude, and do not have self-discipline. A devotee who believes in these words of God and joyfully, willingly, obeys them and carry them out, himself joyfully singing the glory of God, performs all actions dearest to God; he is God’s dearest.
May you remember your divinity and divine inheritance.
With Love and Best Wishes,
