Gita : Ch-10. Slo-14.



Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :


Chapter-10. ( Vibhuthi-yogam )


Slokam-14 . ( Arjuna continued : O Krishna, I totally accept as truth all that You have told me. Neither the gods nor demons, O Lord, know Thy personality.)


sarvametadrtam  manye  yanmam  vadasi  kesava,


na  hi  te bhagavan  vyaktim  vidur deva  na danavah.



kesava,  mam  =  hey  Krishna, unto  me;

yat  vadasi  etat  sarvam  =  what  you  said  all;

rtam  manye  =  I  believe  is  Truth;

bhagavan,  te  vyaktim  =  O Lord,  your  real  svarupam ( revelation );

devah  na  viduh  =  either  deva-s  or  asura-s;

danavah  na  hi  =  nobody  knows.


Now Arjuna confesses that the ignorance he had concerning Lord Krishna's transcendental potencies and absolute supremacy over all creation have been totally dispelled and that everything Lord Krishna has declared is absolute reality and the ultimate truth.

Even the 330 million demi-gods, who are Lord Krishna's empowered servitors administrating universal management in every aspect of material existence are unaware of His real identity, potencies and manifestations.

In verse two Lord Krishna has already stated that the demi-gods are not able to fathom His divine appearance.

The sense is that the demigods cannot fathom that Lord Krishna's divine manifestations are for protecting them and the righteous and the demons are unable to fathom that these divine manifestations are for annihilating them and the unrighteous.


Here Arjuna is asserting that all Lord Krishna is stating is absolutely factual and not any metaphorical description.

This means that every word that Lord Krishna speaks is the absolute reality and His extraordinary and infinite glories and illustrious qualities and phenomenal attributes are always manifest and eternal.

Thus Lord Krishna is known as Bhagavan the complete possessor of the six opulences: total power, total beauty, total wisdom, total wealth, total fame and total renunciation.

Neither the devah or demigods nor the danavah or demons being of limited understanding have the ability to understand Him and perceive His identity in full.


Now it is being confirmed by Arjuna that all Lord Krishna states as well as all that the great sages have stated about Him is 100% correct and absolutely true.

He addresses Lord Krishna as Bhagavan meaning the complete possessor of total power, total wisdom, total beauty, total wealth, total fame and total renunciation.

He also asserts that neither the servitors of righteousness the demigods nor the opponents to righteousness the demons both of limited understanding are able to know the Supreme Lord who performs His phenomenal pastimes as though they are sport.
