Gita : Ch-10. Slo-36.



Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :

Chapter-10. ( Vibhuthi-yogam )

Slokam-36.  ( I am also the gambling of cheats, and of the splendid I am the splendor. I am victory, I am adventure, and I am the strength of the strong.)


dytam  chalayatamasmi  tejastejasvinamaham,


jayosmi   vyavasayosmi    sattvam   sattvatamaham.


chalayatam  dytam   asmi  =  the  gambler's  gambling  (  that  is  cheating,  of  all  cheaters )  I  am;

tejasvinam   tejasah  aham  =  I  am  the  teajas  ( splendid  )  of  all  which  are  bright  and  shining;

jayah  asmi  =  those  successful,  I  am  that  victory;

vyavasayah  asmi  =  those  who  are  adventurous,  their  determinatin ( is ),  I  am.

 sattvatam  sattvam  aham  =  I  am  the  sattva-gunam  Satvic  people.


Among those practising fraud to deceive others Lord Krishna's vibhuti or divine, transcendental opulence is dyutam or gambling.

His vibhuti is the glory of the glorious, the victory of the victorious, the diligence of the diligent and the sattvam or goodness meaning pious conduct of the righteous characterised by knowledge and dispassion.


Of cheaters who defraud each other, Lord Krishna's vibhuti or divine, transcendental opulence is dyutam or gambling.

Of the powerful His vibhuti is the valiant, of the victorious His vibhuti is victory, of the energetic His vibhuti is the endeavour and His vibhuti is the strength of the mighty.


Lord Krishna reveals that of cheaters His vibhuti or divine, transcendental opulence is gambling the art of plundering those who cheat.

His vibhuti is victory for the victorious and His vibhuti is perseverance for the enterprising .

The word sattvam refers to goodness and of those who are good, His vibhuti is the magnanimity and goodness they possesses.
