Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 7 Text 30
sadhiyajnam ca ye viduh
prayana-kale 'pi ca mam
te vidur yukta-cetasah
sa-adhibhuta--and the governing principle of the material manifestation; adhidaivam--governing all the demigods; mam--Me; sa-adhiyajnam--and governing all sacrifices; ca--also; ye--those who; viduh--know; prayana--of death; kale--at the time; api--even; ca--and; mam--Me; te--they; viduh--know; yukta-cetasah--their minds engaged in Me.
Those in full consciousness of Me, who know Me, the Supreme Lord, to be the governing principle of the material manifestation, of the demigods, and of all methods of sacrifice, can understand and know Me, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, even at the time of death.
Srila Prabhupada ends his purport to this last sloka of chapter seven by saying; This determined faith is called drdha-vrata, and it is the beginning of bhakti-yoga, or transcendental loving service. That is the verdict of all scriptures. This Seventh Chapter of the Bhagavad-gita is the substance of that conviction.
