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 )".
