He who perceives Me

The Bhagavad Gita states that “He who perceives Me everywhere and beholds everything in Me never loses sight of Me, nor do I ever lose sight of him.” 145This verse describes the state of the enlightened yogi who has realized the omnipresence of God. Some key insights:

  • The liberated yogi sees God everywhere and sees all things as manifestations of the Divine. 14
  • This yogi never loses sight of God, and God never loses sight of him. Their union is unbreakable. 145
  • The yogi may maintain a dual relationship with God – as both the liberated devotee and the object of adoration. His individuality is not lost, but expanded into the Being of the Spirit. 4
  • For the ordinary person, God may seem absent or distant. But the yogi sees the ever-watchful gaze of the Cosmic Beloved through every window of space. 4
  • Losing God means letting the mind wander from Him. Being with God means uniting the mind with Him. 5

In summary, the verse describes the state of the enlightened devotee who has realized the all-pervasive presence of the Divine and enjoys an unbreakable union with God.
