Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 18 Text 63

iti te jnanam akhyatam
guhyad guhyataram maya
vimnrsyaitad asesena
yathecchasi tatha kuru

iti--thus; te--unto you; jnanam--knowledge; akhyatam--described;guhyat--than confidential; guhya-taram--stillmoreconfidential; maya--by Me; vimrsya--deliberating; etat--on this; asesena--fully; yatha--as; icchasi--you like; tatha--that; kuru--perform.


Thus I have explained to you knowledge still more confidential. Deliberate on this fully, and then do what you wish to do.


And so it comes down to our choice. Do we follow Krishna's instructions and surrender to His will or, after hearing all His instructions, do we go on acting under the modes of nature?

Srila Prabhupada reminds us in his purport; Surrender to the Supreme Personality of Godhead is in the best interest of the living entities. It is not for the interest of the Supreme. Before surrendering, one is free to deliberate on this subject as far as the intelligence goes; that is the best way to accept the instruction of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
