OVERVIEW OF BHAGAVAD-GÉTÄ CHAPTERS 7 TO 12
Chapter 7

The first six chapters of Bhagavad-gétä deal primarily with karma-yoga, the middle six chapters
with bhakti-yoga, and the last six chapters with jnana-yoga. Kåñëa has explained in Chapter Six
that the yogi most intimately united with Him was thinking of Him within.
Now, the Seventh Chapter explains how one can become such a Kåñëa conscious person. By
engaging in devotional service one gains determined faith, dåòha-vratäù, and becomes convinced
that simply by such service all his objectives will be fulfilled.

Knowing Kåñëa in full by hearing about Him (1–7)
In Chapter Seven, Kåñëa begins to explain how to attain this state. Kåñëa urges Arjuna to hear with
mind attached to Him as He explains knowledge of Himself (verses 1–3). He first explains how He
is the origin of everything, both material and spiritual (verses 4–7).

Knowing Kåñëa as the source of both material and spiritual energies (8–12)
Kåñëa describes how He is the essence of everything in verses 8–12. If Kåñëa is the origin and
essence of everything, as explained in texts 4–12, why do some people not recognise him as the
Supreme Personality of Godhead?

The three modes are controlled by Kåñëa — therefore surrender (13–14)
Verses 13–14 explain how the living entities are deluded and controlled by the three modes, but
are able to go beyond them by surrendering to Kåñëa, since He is the controller of the modes.

Four kinds of impious persons who do not surrender to Kåñëa and four kinds of pious
persons who surrender (15–19)
Liberation from the laws of material nature has been sought by the leaders of mankind with great
plans and perseverance for many years. If such liberation is attained by surrendering to Kåñëa,
why don’t they adopt this method? Verse 15 describes four types of unqualified persons who do
not surrender to Kåñëa and who sometimes pose themselves as leaders simply for material gain.
Verses 16–19 describe four types of persons who surrender to Kåñëa, and how the wise man is
the best because he does not desire some gain.

Demigod worshippers and impersonalists whose surrender is misplaced (20–25)
Verses 20–23 describe less intelligent persons who worship demigods for material gain. Verses
24–25 describe the impersonalists who surrender to the formless aspect of Kåñëa. They cannot
see Kåñëa, who covers Himself from their vision.


Bewilderment of the living entity and freedom through knowledge of Kåñëa (26–30)
Kåñëa knows all and is thus different from these foolish living entities that are born into delusion
and are bewildered by dualities arising from desire and hate.
Pious persons, freed from dualities arising from delusion engage in devotional service with
determination and attain liberation. They have knowledge of Kåñëa as adhibhüta, adhidaiva, and
adhiyajïa.
