Gita : Ch-11. Slo-38.




Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :

Chapter-11. (Visvarupa-darsana-yogam)

Slokam-38. ( You are the original Personality, the Godhead. You are the only sanctuary of this manifested cosmic world. You know everything, and You are all that is knowable. You are above the material modes. O limitless form! This whole cosmic manifestation is pervaded by You! )


tvam-adi-devah  purushah  puranah

tvam-asya  visvasya  param  nidhanam,

vettha-asi  vedyam  ca  param  ca  dhama

tvaya  tatam  visvam-ananta-rupa.


tvam-adi-devah  =  You  are  the  first Supreme  God;

puranah  purushah  =  Oldest  ( ancient )  Purushan ( Personality;

asya  visvasya  =  this  belief;

param  nidhanam  tvam  =  You  are  the  universal  transcendental;

vettha  vedyam  ca  =  knower  and  the  knowable;

param  dhama  ca  asi  =  Supreme  refuge  you  are  (  for  the  devotees /universe);

ananta-rupa  =  having  unlimited  forms;

tvaya  visvam  tatam  =  You  are  all-pervading,  the  whole  universe.


Everything is resting on the Supreme Personality of Godhead; therefore He is the ultimate rest. Nidhanam means that everything, even the Brahman effulgence, rests on the Supreme Personality of Godhead . He is the knower of everything that is happening in this world, and if knowledge has any end, He is the end of all knowledge; therefore He is the known and the knowable. He is the object of knowledge because He is all-pervading. Because He is the cause in the spiritual world, He is transcendental. He is also the chief personality in the transcendental world.

What in the universe and all creation is not a part of the Supreme Lord Krishna. He is the knower of all that is known and knowable. He abides as the atma or eternal soul within all living entities. He is the highest goal yet He is beyond the highest goal. All existences past, present and future, sentient as well as insentient are impregnate with the Supreme Lord who resides within them as the eternal principle in the form of the atma. Hence all such terms as eternal, unlimited, imperishable, indestructible etc. refer to Him exclusively.

The Supreme Lord Krishna is prime cause of all causes. The most ancient of all. The origin of all the demigods and every other kind of god. The ultimate refuge of creation and all universes because He is the visvarupa the divine universal form. He is the knower of everything and the goal of everything knowable. He is the highest abode known as the spiritual realms of Vaikuntha and He is beyond that. The whole manifest and unmanifest creation is pervaded by Him. Because of all these things Lord Krishna deserves glorification and salutations from everyone in all creation.

Lord Krishna is without beginning, the complete abode and refuge of everything. The seat of creation and place of dissolution of all creation. The original source of all the demigods and every other kind of god. The knower of everything that is knowable and He comprises everything that is knowable including the highest abode and spiritual realms all pervasive everywhere. Owing to these seven reasons Lord Krishna alone is worthy of homage by all beings.
