The Personality of Godhead both in the Bhagwat Geeta and in all other scriptures has definitely instructed to follow the Lord only. Because the Lord is the creator, maintainer and annihilator of everything. The whole manifestive creation is existing by His will and by His will when the whole show will be finished He will remain in His eternal abode with His all paraphernalia. This means, before the creation, He was there in the eternal abode and after the annihilation of everything He will continue to remain. He is not therefore one of the created beings. He is transcendental. In the Bhagwat Geeta the Lord says that long long before the instruction was imparted to Arjuna, the same was instructed to the Sun god and in course of time, the same instruction being wrongly handled and being broken thereof, it was again reinstructed to Arjuna because he was His perfect devotee and friend. Therefore, the instruction of the Lord can be understood by the devotees only and nobody else. The impersonalist who has no idea of the transcendental Form of the Lord cannot understand this most confidential message of the Lord. The word 'most confidential' is significant here because knowledge of devotional service is far and far above the knowledge of impersonal Brahman. Jananam means knowledge ordinary or any branch of knowledge. This knowledge developes up to the knowledge of impersonal Brahman. Above this when the same is partially mixed up with devotion such knowledge develops up to the knowledge of Paramatma or the all pervading Godhead. This is more confidential. But when such knowledge is turned into pure devotional service and the confidential part of transcendental knowledge is attained, it is called the most-confidential knowledge. This most confidential knowledge was imparted by the Lord to Brahma Arjuna, Uddhaba etc. #/div# #/div# please wait#div class="mw-parser-output"##p class="mw-empty-elt"# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TEXT_30"#TEXT 30#/span##/h4# #div class="verse"# #dl##dd#jñānaṁ guhyatamaṁ yat tat#/dd# #dd#sākṣād bhagavatoditam#/dd# #dd#anvavocan gamiṣyantaḥ#/dd# #dd#kṛpayā dīna-vatsalāḥ#/dd##/dl# #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="SYNONYMS"#SYNONYMS#/span##/h4# #div class="synonyms"# #i#jñānam#/i#—knowledge; #i#guhyatamam#/i#—most confidential; #i#yat#/i#—what is; #i#tat#/i#—that; #i#sākṣāt#/i#—directly; #i#bhagavatā uditam#/i#—propounded by the Lord Himself; #i#anvavocan#/i#—gave instruction; #i#gamiṣyantaḥ#/i#—while departing from; #i#kṛpayā#/i#—by causeless mercy; #i#dīna-vatsalāḥ#/i#—those who are very kind to the poor and meek. #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="TRANSLATION"#TRANSLATION#/span##/h4# #div class="translation"# As they were leaving, those bhakti-vedāntas, who are very kind to poor-hearted souls, instructed me in that most confidential subject which is instructed by the Personality of Godhead Himself. #/div# #h4##span class="mw-headline" id="PURPORT"#PURPORT#/span##/h4# #div class="purport"# A pure Vedāntist, or a #i#bhakti-vedānta#/i#, instructs followers exactly according to the instructions of the Lord Himself.
