vedesu yajnesu tapahsu caiva
danesu yat punya-phalam pradistam
atyeti tat sarvam idam viditva
yogi param sthanam upaiti cadyam
" A person by understanding all these reaches beyond what by performing yagna, tapas and chairity as stipulated in Vedas, could yield noble results; he reaches the highest and most ancient place."
Vedesu = in Vedas, yagnesu = yagnas, yat punya phalam = whatever punya results, pradhishtam = will be recieved. Similarly, tapasu = meditations, danesu = chairities. That is in accordance with the stipulations of Vedas by performing Yagnas, meditations and gifts, whatever punya results would accrue, atyeti = stands beyond them. Who stands beyond all the good results achieved by yagna, meditation and loftiness? Idam sarvam = all these, viditva = having learnt, tat = that person. Whatever we learnt in the Chapters 7 and 8 is here mentioned by the Lord as all these. In Chapter 7, He told He is also the means. He is the Cause of the Universe. All souls are twained by Him. He is the support of all. He is prevading in and out of all and the entire Universe. All are ruled by Him. Such a great He was learnt in Chapter 7. This was to explain the 4 types of devotees and only one type wanted the Lord alone and nothing else - Bhagavallabharti. For him everything is He only and considers Sri Vasudeva for everything. Such persons are rare also was told by the Lord. In Chapter 8, what each type of these devotees should know and follow was explained. The routes and destinations were all explained. His greatness was also detailed. So after learning all these, the best course would have been learnt as saranagathi or clingfing to His feet. Yogi = person now desirous of reaching the Lord, thinking always about archiradhi marg, param sthanam = higheast place [ Vaikuntam], adyam sthanam = very ancient place [ Vaikuntam], upaiti = reaches. Such a person reachaes the place which has no equals or superiors, where happiness only is there, where there is no hatred or enmity, where there is no hunger or thirst or oldage, that is Vaikuntam and the Lord confirms it here. So He is the goal and to reach Him we should have archiradhi marg in mind always and for that also He alone can help. We should be doing all good things as long as we live here and never even think of harming anybody. This ensures happiness here and paves the path for archiradhi marg.
