Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 7 Text 29
mam asritya yatanti ye
te brahma tad viduh krtsnam
adhyatmam karma cakhilam
jara--from old age; marana--and death; moksaya--for the purpose of liberation; mam--Me; asritya--taking shelter of; yatanti--endeavor; ye--all those who; te--such persons; brahma--Brahman; tat--actually that; viduh--they know; krtsnam--everything; adhyatmam--transcendental; karma--activities; ca--also; akhilam--entirely.
Intelligent persons who are endeavoring for liberation from old age and death take refuge in Me in devotional service. They are actually Brahman because they entirely know everything about transcendental activities.
Srila Prabhupada states in his purport; Only persons who perform activities in Krsna consciousness (mam asritya) are actually entitled to be called Brahman, because they are actually endeavoring to reach the Krsna planet. Such persons have no misgivings about Krsna, and thus they are factually Brahman.
