Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :

Chapter-10. ( Vibhuthi-yogam )

Slokam-29. ( Lord further said : Of the celestial Naga snakes I am Ananta; of the aquatic deities I am Varuna. Of departed ancestors I am Aryama, and among the dispensers of law I am Yama, lord of death. )


anantascasmi  naganam  varuno  yadasamaham,


pitrnamaryama  casmi  yamah  samyamatamaham.


naganam  anantah  =  among  non-poisonous  snakes  Ananta  and;

yadasam  =  of  all  jala-devata-s  ( aquatic-deities );

varunah  aham  asmi  =    I  am  Varuna-devan  ( Lord  of  Rain,  Lord of water  sources,  Lord  of  Ocean) ;

pitrnam  aryama  =   of  the ancestors,  I  am  Aryama;

samyamatam  =  of   the  law,  (  punishing  authority ),   the  authority;

yamah  ca  aham  asmi  =  I  am  the  Yama  (  Lord of  Death / Punishment ).



Among non-poisonous serpents of many heads Lord Krishna's vibhuti or divine, transcendental opulence is the divine snake Ananta endowed with the qualities of dispassion, mightiness, etc.

Among the controllers of the demigods who direct universal management His vibhuti is Yamaraja the demigod in charge of death who blesses the righteous and punishes the unrighteous.


Of Nagas or non-poisonous snakes, Lord Krishna vibhuti or divine, transcendental opulence is Ananta the divine serpent upon whose head unlimited universes revolve resembling the size of a mustard seed.

Of aquatics He is Varuna the ruler of the waters.

Of the manes or ancestors His vibhuti is Aryaman the king of the manes and of chastisers or those who mete out punishment Lord Krishna's vibhuti is Yamaraja the demigod in charge of death and punishment after death.


Among the many celestial Naga serpents, Ananta is the greatest, as is Varuṇa among the aquatics.

They both represent Krishna.

There is also a planet of trees presided over by Aryama, who represents Krishna.

There are many living entities who give punishment to the miscreants, and among them Yama is the chief.

Yama is situated in a planet near this earthly planet, and after death those who are very sinful are taken there, and Yama arranges different kinds of punishments for them.


Lord Krishna reveals that His vibhuti or divine, transcendental opulence among naganam is Ananta.

Naganam means non-poisonous serpents with many heads.

The word yadasam means aquatics or inhabitants of water and of punishers and chastisers His vibhuti is Yamaraja.
