Gita : Ch-10. Slo-27.



Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :

Chapter-10. ( Vibhuthi-yogam )

Slokam-27. (  Lord  : "Of horses know Me to be Uccaihsrava, who rose out of the ocean, born of the elixir of immortality; of lordly elephants I am Airavata, and among men I am the monarch." )


uccaihsravasamasvanam  viddhi  mam  amrtodbhavam,



airavatam  gajendranam  naramam  ca  naradhipam.



asvanam  amrtodbhavam  =  of  all  horses,  ( during  Palazhi-madanam,  to  get  Amrtam,  the  horse  came  out  among  many  things );

uccaihsravasam  =  the  great  horse  namely  "Uccaihsravasam";

gajendranam   airavatam  =  of  all  elephants,  "Airavatam ";

naramam   naradhipam  ca  =  of  all  humanbeings  as  "King";

mam  viddhi  =  know  Me  ( as told  above ).


You may be knowing the from  Puranas  "Palazhi-madhanam"  ( Churning  of  Ocean Palazhi );

in which both Deva  and  Asura  have  taken  part,

two things  came  out : -

1. horse Uccaihsrava ( the flying  horse ),  and 2. elephant Airavata ( white  elephant );

both  were  offered to the  King  of  Heaven ( Devendra).



Of powerful horse and mighty elephant,

Lord Krishna's vibhuti or divine,

transcendental opulence is the horse Uccaihsrava and the elephant Airavata,

who both were manifested by amrtodbhavam which was the churning of the ocean of milk into celestial nectar by the demigods and demons as revealed in the Puranas.

And know that Lord Krishna's vibhuti manifests amongst humans as the ruler of men being naradhipam the royal king.


Among horses and elephants Lord Krishna's vibhuti or divine,

transcendental opulence is Uccaihsrava and Airavata respectively who were both churned from the nectar by the demigods.

Among humans His vibhuti is the royal king.
