Gita : Ch-11. Slo-5.



Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :

Chapter-11. ( Visvarupa-darsana-yogam )

 Slokam-5.( Lord said:  Arjuna,  behold now My opulences, hundreds of thousands of varied divine multicolored forms.)


Sri-bhagavan uvaca

pasya  me  partha  rupani  satasotha  sahasrasah,

nanavidhani  divyani   nanavarnakrtini  ca.


Sri bhagavan uvaca  =  Lord said:

partha  nanavidhani  =  Arjuna!  in  various / different  ways ( variegated )  and;

nanavarnakrtini  ca  =  ( likewise )  in  many  colours,  and  forms;

me  satasah  atha  sahasrasah  =  My  hundreds  also  thousands  of;

divyani  rupani  pasya  =  behold  divine  forms.


 Being so requested the Supreme Lord Krishna proceeds to advise Arjuna about what His omnipotent visvarupa or divine universal form will be exhibiting and inferring that he should pay attention.

The word pasya means behold.

Although the form is one it has unlimited features and innumerable different personalities are manifested within it.

The word rupani meaning forms is plural and denotes various, divine, supernatural forms of variegated types and multicoloured hues such as black, blue, yellow, red, green and white as well as particular and specific arrangements of many diverse parts and unique shapes of divine expansions harmoniously connected in the sataso'tha sahasrasah or hundreds of thousands infinite in number.


The Supreme Lord Krishna being requested by His surrendered devotee to reveal His visvarupa or divine universal form; responded with the word pasya meaning behold, His hundred of thousands of radiant and dazzling transcendental manifestations inferring that he should be prepared because it is difficult to look at. He addresses Arjuna as Partha referring to him as the son of His female devotee Prtha better known as Kunti.

The word rupani meaning forms is used to express the manifestation of innumerable multifarious and multicoloured divine forms and shapes.

Lord Krishna is instructing to behold His all encompassing, all sustaining transcendental visvarupa or divine universal form in hundreds of thousands of unique transcendental manifestations.

The word divyani means divine denoting non-material spiritual colours and forms never seen before.
