In this excerpt from the Bhagavad Gita in the Light of Kashmir Shaivism, Swami Lakshmanjoo sums up the meaning of chapter nine in this concluding verse by saying, “śaktipāta is always at your disposal!”
DVD 9 (59:19)
अद्वैते ब्रह्मणि परा सर्वानुग्रहशालिनी ।
शक्तिर्विजृम्भते तेन यतनीयं तदाप्तये ॥९॥
advaite brahmaṇi parā sarvānugrahaśālinī /
śaktirvijṛmbhate tena yatanīyaṁ tadāptaye //9//
॥ Concluding śloka for the 9th chapter ॥
You should know, everybody should know, that the gracious, divine, that śaktipāta (grace), is everywhere glittering, for those who are deprived of that and for those who are fit for having that.
But this śaktipāta is available to everybody!
This śaktipāta is not locked for anybody – it is open!
Śaktipāta is always at your disposal.
Śaktipāta of Parabhairava is at your disposal, always. So you have to just divert your attention towards that and you will have it. It is nothing, you have not to seek for that. You have to divert your attention towards that and it is there, I have given [it to] you!
This is the conclusion of this chapter, 9th chapter.
