Gita : Ch-10. Slo-2.

Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :


Chapter-10. ( Vibhuti-yogam )


Slokam-2. { Neither the hosts of demigods nor the great sages know My origin, for, in every respect, I am the source of the demigods and the sages.}

One may wonder how to remedy the fact that there are so many philosophers, theosophical thinkers, and erudite scholars who are unable to realise Lord Krishna's supreme, transcendental position as the cause, source and ultimate controller of all creation. 

To augment this view Lord Krishna referring to the demigods and the great liberated sages states the words na viduh which means that ev…

Gita : (10.19):


Sribhagavanuvaca:


hanta   te   kathayishyami   divya   hyatmavibhutayah,



pradhanyatah   kurusreshha    nastyanto    vistarasya   me.



The Lord says, “I will tell you briefly. The details that you are speaking of are endless, infinite. How will I go on telling you all that is infinite in its nature? But I will give you an outline of where you can locate Me in this world.”



Gita : (10.20):


Ahamatma   gudakesa    sarvabhutasayasthitah,  ..... 


“I am the soul of all beings.

Wherever you see existence, there you see Me present as the basic fundamental reality of all.

The love of life, which can be seen even in the worst of creatures, is actually a distorted love that they are manifesting towards the existence of their own individuality—

but actually, that existence is borrowed from My universal existence.

I am the soul, the basic…

Gita : Ch-10. Introduction-3.

Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :

Chapter-10. ( Vibhuti-yogam )

Introduction part- 3.



Thus Lord Krishna declared in the seventh and eighth chapters that the Supreme Lord is only accessible by bhakti or loving devotion.

Then in the ninth chapter the greatness of this loving devotion to the Supreme Lord was revealed directly by the realisation of consciousness and indirectly by declaring the eternal, spiritual benefits gained for His devotees as opposed to the temporary, material benefits gained by the votaries of the demigods and all other gods.

Now in order to induce the realisation of His infinite Supremacy over all to germinate and transform into loving devotion, He speaks this verse for Arjuna's and devotees like him for their highest interests and best welfare.

This is because although it was discoursed upon earlier the greatness and majesty of the Supreme Lord is so extraordinary and phenomenal that it is very difficult to be properly understood by most.



In the previous chapters sev…

Gita : Ch-10. Introduction-2.

Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :

Chapter-10. ( Vibhuti-yogam )

Introduction part-2.

The jeeva which is with limits and apurnan ( incomplete ), is the 'Atma' which is functioning with the help of tools mano, bhuddhi ( mind and intelligence ) of the "Vyashti" ( Vyakti or individual ).


The same 'Atma' when manifest through the mano, bhuddhi, of "Samashti" ( world or samooham or society ), becomes beyond limits ( limitless ) and Purnam ( Complete ), and this is called "Eswaran" Or "Paramatma".


If one grasps these "Vyashti-bhavam"and "Samashti-bhavam "of "Atma" correctly, it is very easy to understand the "Tattvam" ( Essence ) of chapters 10 and 11 of Srimad Bhagavadgeeta.


Here is an example to understand "Eswara-Tattvam" in Vedantham :-

Gita : Ch-10.Introduction-1.

Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :



Chapter-10. ( Vibhuti-yogam )


Introduction :- Part-1.


Vibhuti : meaning - Prosperous, Strong, Huge, Whole ( combined all divine ).


Though looking on the headings of the chapters, they seemed different, but they are all inter connected in "Tattvam-s". The most important are 6th and 7th slokam-s of chapter-7. After explaining "HIS" two prakruti-s viz.; "PARA & APARA", Lord says :  "I am the cause for the creation of all world-s,  and equally to their layanam too, they are all, just like pearls in a "thread ( in me )".


This way 'Omni-potent, Omni-present, "Paramatma" Lord Sri Krishna,  though,  is the source for all names and forms , needs to inform Arjuna : about His place in the Prapancha-Vastu-s.


Lord is the essence / tattvam of this diverse prapancham i.e; " Paramatma". Hence, Lord narrates Himself as the main component of all living things, and the Supreme property, which enables each sp…

Gita : Ch-9. Slo-34.

Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :


Chapter-9. ( Raja-vidya-raja-guhya-yogam )


Slokam-34 ( Engage your mind always in thinking of Me, offer obeisances and worship Me. Being completely absorbed in Me, surely you will come to Me.)

atmanam  (  mayi )  yuktva  =  transfer  ( dissolve )  ( your )  individuality  ( personality )  in  Me;

mam  eva  eshyasi  =  certainly  you  attain  Me.



This chapter concludes by revealing the pure, simplistic way of worshipping the Supreme Lord Krishna by the words man-manah focus one's consciousness on Lord Krishna, mad bhakto be Lord Krishna's devotee, mad yaji give propitiation and worship to Lord…

Gita : Ch-9. Slo-33.

Srimad  Bhagavad-Gita :


Chapter-9. ( Raja-vidya-raja-guhya-yogam )



Slokam-33. (   How much greater then are the brahmanas, the righteous, the devotees and saintly kings who in this temporary miserable world engage in loving service unto Me. )



Kim   punarbrahmanah   punyah  bhakta   rajarshayastatha,



Anityamasukham   lokam  imam   prapya   bhajasva  mam.

It is clearly stated here, anityam asukhaṁ lokam : -

this world is temporary and full of miseries, not habitable for any sane gentleman.

This world is declared by the Supreme Perso…
