Bhagavan is attained through single-minded attention – Bhagavad Gita

All sensory enjoyments also bring suffering in their wake; therefore, the wise ones do not indulge in the impermanent. In other words, the fleeting nature of sensory experience always brings a sense of loss in its wake, and therefore suffering follows. (5.22)

As fire is enveloped by smoke, as a mirror by dirt and as a fetus remains enclosed in the womb, so is our true nature shrouded by desire. (3.38)

O son of Pritha, to that yogi of constant concentration and single-minded attention, who remembers Me uninterruptedly and for long, I am easy of attainment. (8.14)

By constantly thinking of sense objects, an attachment to them is developed, which in turn creates desire. From desire anger comes, which creates delusion, and consequently a person forgets oneself. Then one loses discriminative power and destroys oneself. (2.62-3)
