a question

dear bhagavthas,

  i have a question silly as it may seem.
i wish to clarify how prapatti is established by sri
ramanuja on the basis of srimad bhagavad gita. why i
ask this is when krsihna says in 18th cahpater that he
is going to tell the secret of all secrets he says two
verses: sarvadharman...... and then man man bhava mad
bhakto.......
  a)here the first verse endorses prapatti while the
second verse endorses bhakti. so which of these to is
guhyad guhyatamam?

b) secondly the last instruction by sri krishna in
bhagavad gita to arjuna  is to become a bhakta and
prapatti is stated prior. so which statement is to be
considered more emphatic.

adiyen

ramanuja dasan
narasimhan ranganathan
