Gita : Ch-11. Slo-45.
Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :
Chapter-11. ( Visvarupa-darsana-yogam)
Slokam-45. ( After seeing this universal form, which I have never seen before, I am gladdened, but at the same time my mind is disturbed with fear. Therefore please bestow Your grace upon me and reveal again Your form as the Personality of Godhead, O Lord of lords, O abode of the universe.)
adrshta-purvam hrshithosmi drshtva
bhayena ca pravyathitam mano me,
tad-eva me darsaya deva rupam
prasida devesa jagan-nivasa.
adrshta-purvam drshtva = never seen before such Visva-rupam ( after seeing the Universal form );
hrshithah asmi = I am completely filled with joy;
(tatha api) me manah = though it is so, my mind;
bhayena pravyathitam ca = and I am due to fear shivering too;
deva! tat rupam eva = O Lord, request to return to your earlier form;
me darsaya = and show me too;
devesa jagan-nivasa = O Lord of all Lords, the Supreme refuge of the Universe;
prasida = be gracious.
Having humbly beseeched Lord Krishna for full forgiveness, Arjuna now reveals his heart in this verse and the next explaining that by seeing the visvarupa or divine universal form, that had never been seen before and which possesses unlimited grandeur and power he was overjoyed and thrilled but at the same time his mind was agitated and disturbed by the fearful aspect of it.
Feeling trepidation Arjuna requests Lord Krishna to please revert back to the human looking form of his friend that he is accustomed to always seeing.
Beholding the phenomenal but terrifying form of Lord Krishna's visvarupa or divine universal form, fully satisfied the curiosity of Arjuna but his mind was filled with fear.
So he humbly requests Lord Krishna with salutary exclamations of devasa jagan-nivasa meaning O Lord of lords, O refuge of creation.
The word prasida means to please be magnanimous and transform Himself back into that benign form he was accustomed to see.
After humbly beseeching forgiveness for any past indiscretions he may have incurred and observing that Lord Krishna was not displeased, Arjuna confesses that although the visvarupa or divine universal form was wonderful to behold the terrifying aspect of it caused him to be fearful and agitated.
So he requests Lord Krishna to revert back to the form by which he is familiar with to placate his mind and raise his spirits.
