Gita : Ch-10. Slo-30.



Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :

Chapter-10. ( Vibhuthi-yogam )

Slokam-30. ( Sri Krishna  : Among the Daitya demons ( Asura-s )  I am the devoted Prahlada; among subduers I am time; among the beasts I am the lion, and among birds I am Garuda, the feathered carrier of Vishnu. )


prahladacasmi  daityanam  kalah  kalayatam  aham,


mrganam  ca  mrgendroham  vainateyasca  pakshinam.


daityanam   prahladah  =  among  daityas  Prahladan  and;

kalayatam  kalah  =  among  measurements,  in  the  counting  way,  the  Time  and;

mrganam   mrgendrah  =  among  animals  Lion  and;

pakshinam  vainateyah  ca  =  among  birds, Garudan;

aham  asmi  =  ( all  mentioned  above  are )  I  am.


Diti and Aditi are two sisters.

The sons of Aditi are called Adityas, and the sons of Diti are called Daityas.

All the Adityas are devotees of the Lord, and all the Daityas are atheistic.

Although Prahlada was born in the family of the Daityas, he was a great devotee from his childhood.

Because of his devotional service and godly nature, he is considered to be a representative of Vishnu.


There are many subduing principles, but time wears down all things in the material universe and so represents Krishna.

Of the many animals, the lion is the most powerful and ferocious, and of the million varieties of birds, Garuda, the bearer of Lord Vishnu, is the greatest.



Among the Daityas or descendants of Diti who are of the demoniac line, Lord Krishna's vibhuti is the great devotee Prahlad whose name literally means one who makes the righteous happy and who is surrendered fully to the Supreme Lord with bhakti or exclusive loving devotion.

Among measurements His vibhuti or divine, transcendental opulence is time the prime cause of all results and comprised of divisions such as seconds, minutes, hours, days, months, years, millenniums etc.

Among birds His vibhuti is Garuda the carrier of Vishnu.


Among those born in demoniac lines, Lord Krishna's vibhuti or divine, transcendental opulence is the great devotee Prahlada who although in spite of being born from demonic parents was totally devoted to the Supreme Lord in loving devotion beginning when he was still in his mothers womb.

Of all controllers His vibhuti is time.

Of beasts His vibhuti is mrgendro the lion the king of all beasts and of birds His vibhuti is vainateyah or the son of Vinata known as Garuda the king of all birds and the Supreme Lords carrier.


Lord Krishna's vibhuti or divine, transcendental opulence of subjugators is kalah or time.

Kalah also denotes mrtyu or death which is the most powerful subjugator subduing all.
