BG Chap 8 - How does knowledge of these paths affect a devotee?

The yogī, who knows these two paths, is never bewildered because such knowledge produces a sense of discrimination. Kṛṣṇa advises Arjuna to be fixed in devotion or samādhi. The devotee does not believe in the necessity of prescribed actions (karma-yoga) which leads one to the path of darkness. A devotee of the Supreme Lord should not worry whether he will depart by arrangement or by accident. The devotee should be firmly established in Kṛṣṇa consciousness and chant Hare Kṛṣṇa. He should know that concern over either of these two paths is troublesome. The best way to be absorbed in Kṛṣṇa consciousness is to be always dovetailed in His service, and this will make one's path to the spiritual kingdom safe, certain and direct.
