This is verse 10.7 of the Jnaneshwari (Bhavartha-Dipika), the English translation of 13th-century Marathi commentary on the Bhagavad-Gita.—The Dnyaneshwari (Jnaneshwari) brings to light the deeper meaning of the Gita which represents the essence of the Vedic Religion. This is verse 7 of the chapter called Vibhuti-yoga.

Verse 10.7:This Creative-manifestation of Me, and my even-tempered activism, he who realises in its true-nature, he becomes linked (with Me) in unswerving union; of this there is no doubt. (104)

Commentary called Jnaneshwari by Jnaneshwar:

Therefore, Oh Son of Pandu, these emanations and their specific manifestations are My own reflexions that have pervaded the entire universe. Hence right from the very God Brahmadeva, down to the tiny ant, verily there is nothing (in this universe) except My divine self. One who realises this, has indeed awakened to see the light of illumination into which evaporate the bad dream that causes the error of plurality and distinction of better and worse. Through his insight born of Yogic illumination, he sees the unity in My divine being of these created manifestations, as also all created individuals, born of these manifestations. Being free from all doubt and error, through his yogic experience of unity, his mind becomes one with My spirit and undoubtedly he has become completely purified and perfect. And there in the sanctuary that such a yogin builds out of his devotional strains coming from his vision of God’s Pure Unity, I would fain make My home. I have already said enough in Chapter six how the devotional path that starts from the yoga of God’s unity, must bring him to Me unswervingly, even if he drops his body on the way. To satisfy your yearning to know more of this devotional yoga of God’s unity, I speak these words which you hear.
