Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7 Verse 19

Gita 7.19

बहूनाम्, जन्मनाम्, अन्ते, ज्ञानवान्, माम्, प्रपद्यते,
वासुदेवः, सर्वम्, इति, सः, महात्मा,सुदुर्लभः।।19।।

Gita 7.19

Bahoonaam’, janmnaam’, ante, gyaanvan’, mam’, prpadhyate,
VasudevH, sarvam’, iti, saH, mahatma, sudurlabhH ||19||

Translation: (Bahoonaam’) many (janmnaam’) births (ante) in the last birth (gyaanvaan’) he who has attained the true spiritual knowledge / Tatvgyan (mam’) me (prpadhyate) worships (vasudevH) Vasudev i.e. the Omnipresent Purna Brahm only (sarvam’) is everything (iti) thus, he who knows this (saH) that (mahatma) Mahatma (sudurlabhH) is extremely rare. (19)

Gita 7.19: In the last birth after many births, he who has attained Tatvgyan (the true spiritual knowledge) worships me. Vasudev i.e. the Omnipresent Purna Brahm only is everything, he who knows this, that Mahatma is extremely rare.

In Shrimad Bhagwat Skand Tenth, 51, Shri Krishna has himself said that because of being the son of Vasudev, I am called Vasudev, not due to being everyone’s master or omnipresent. This proves that only Supreme God is Vasudev.

Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7 Verse 19 - Meaning

The meaning of Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7 Verse 19 is that even my (Brahm’s) worship is done by a rare person after many births. Otherwise, people keep worshipping other gods only. It further says that, that saint is extremely rare who tells that 'Purna Brahm' (Supreme God) only is everything.

Gita 7.19 gives a very profound message. The speaker of Bhagavad Gita says that rarely does anyone worships him and if someone does, then that that too happens after numerous births. This statement by Shri Krishna is in stark contrast to the prevailing reality. Majority of Hindus in India worship Shri Krishna where as in this verse Shri Krishna says that hardly anyone worships me. What is the reality? The fact is that Kaal Brahm is the one giving the knowledge of Bhagavad Gita and no one knows him. Therefore no one worships him.

He further says in the same verse that, that saint who says that Vasudev (Supreme God) is everything is extremely rare to find. In Hinduism, due to hear-say, the word Vasudev is attributed to Shri Krishna. However, that is not the case. Vasudev was actually the name of Father of Shri Krishna. Moreover every common saint in India actually professes the worship of Shri Krishna. So they are not rare at all. These saints are rather extremely commonplace. The fact is that a saint who holds the knowledge about Supreme God is extremely rare to find. This is what Kaal Brahm has alluded to in this verse. He says that a Supreme Saint who holds the highest knowledge about Supreme God is extremely rare to find.
