Gita Ch-11. Slo-30.




Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :

Chapter-11. (Visvarupa-darsana-yogam)

Slokam-30. ( O Lord, I see You devouring all people in Your flaming mouths and covering the universe with Your immeasurable rays. Scorching the worlds, You are manifest.)

lelihyase   grasamanah   samantat

lokan  samagran  vadanairjvaladbhih,

tejobhirapurya  jagat  samagram

bhasastavograh  pratapanti  vishno.


jvaladbhih  vadanaih  =  with  blazing  mouths (faces);

samantat  samagran  lokan   =  from  everywhere  ( all  directions )  the  complete  worlds ( people );

grasamanah  lelihyase  =    licking  and   devouring;

vishno   tava  ugrah  bhasah  =  O, Lord!  Your  violent  powerful  rays (illuminating );

jagat  samagram  =  the  whole  Universe  completely;

tejobhih  apurya   pratapant  =  covering  by  scorching  effulgence.


As other transcendental activities of the Supreme Lord Krishna such as the pralaya or the waters of dissolution during universal destruction, unlimited people were entering His mouth due to the process of the creative cycle.

Established in the middle of the battlefield between the Kaurava and Pandava armies the visvarupa or divine universal form with innumerable faces and mouths turned towards both armies could be seen devouring multitudes of warriors continuously entering those mouths in an endless stream.

Those who were to die at the commencement of the battle could already be seen pulverised by the fierce, gnashing teeth other perishing later could be seen just entering these mouths.

The sight of this was supra- subtle and could only be seen by those who were atma-tatva or soul realised and could not be seen by others.

Like a pot which is broken cannot be seen by ordinary people until it breaks into pieces; the sight of the visvarupa was not visible to those of normal eyes.

It can also be compared to the case of King Puru who received the youth and form of his youngest son.

Only the demigods of medicine being the twin Aswins were able to perceive his true old age and not others.


Lord Krishna's visvarupa or divine universal form was very agreeable to devour all the warriors lapping them up completely like a lion laps up water and swallowing these warriors with His innumerable fiery mouths.

Kings like Duryodhana were rushing into these mouths from all directions and the visvarupa's fierce and terrible splendour is torture to the entire creation who is being seared and scorched by its blazing effulgence.


Lord Krishna is being addressed as Vishnu the one who pervades all creation.

As His visvarupa or divine universal form is voraciously devouring the mighty warriors of both armies with its flaming mouths.

Furthermore the blazing effulgence radiating from the visvarupa is so bright that it is scorching the universe with its brilliance.


Lord Krishna is addressed as Vishnu or He who pervades the entire creation.

The mighty warriors who will fight in the battle are already captured in the visvarupa's innumerable flaming mouths voraciously devouring them.

All are seared and scathed by the heat of its blazing effulgence encompassing all the worlds.
