Chapter 4 – Text 11

ये यथा मां प्रपद्यन्ते तांस्तथैव भजाम्यहम

मम वर्त्मानुवर्तन्ते मनुष्याः पार्थ सर्वशः

All of them – as they surrender to Me – I reward them accordingly; everyone who follows my path in all respects shall receive My grace.

Chapter 9 – Text 22

अनन्याश्चिन्तयन्तो मां ये जनाः पर्युपासते

तेषां नित्याभियुक्तानं योगक्षेमं वहाम्यहम

Those who worship Me with devotion, meditating on My transcendental form, I carry them with me and, fulfil what they lack, and preserve what they have.

Chapter 9 – Text 34

मन्मना भव मद्भक्तो मद्याजी मां नमस्कुरु

मामेवैष्यसि युक्त्वैवमात्मानं मत्परायणः

Engage your mind always in thinking of Me, offer obeisance and worship Me. Having your soul completely absorbed in Me, surely you will merge with Me.

Chapter 18 – Text 66

सर्वधर्मान्परित्यज्य मामेकं शरणं वज्र 

अहं त्वां सर्वपापेभ्यो मोक्षयिष्यामि मा शुचः

Abandon all varieties of religion and just surrender unto Me. I shall deliver you from all sinful reaction. Do not fear.

Chapter 18 – Text 78

यत्र योगेश्वरः कृष्णो यत्र पार्थो धनुर्धरः 

तत्र श्रीर्विजयो भूतिर्ध्रुवा नीतिर्मतिर्मम

Wherever there is Krishna, the master of all mystics, and wherever there is Arjun, the supreme archer, there will also certainly be opulence, victory, extraordinary power, and morality. That is my opinion.
