Gita : Ch-11. Slo-51.



Srimad Bhagavad-Gita :

Chapter-11. ( Visvarupa-darsana-yogam )

Slokam-51. ( When Arjuna thus saw Krishna in His original form, he said: Seeing this human like form, so very beautiful, my mind is now pacified, and I am restored to my original nature.)


 arjuna uvaca

drshtvedam  manusham  rupam  tava  saumyam  janardana,


idanimasmi  samvrttah   sacetah   prakrtim  gatah.


 arjuna uvaca  =  Arjuna  said;

janardana   tava  saumyam  =  O Lord!  Your  calm  and  pleasant;

idam  manusham  rupam  drshtva  =  after  seeing  Your  human  form;

( aham)  idanim   sacetah   =  I  am  now  with  comfortable  mind;

 prakrtim  gatah  =  attained  ( my )  nature;

 samvrttah  asmi  =  got  back  ( my ) peace  of  mind  and  own  consciousness.


 After gazing again on Lord Krishna in human vestige looking extraordinarily phenomenal with four-arms and then again as a countenance of beauty with two arms lovely to envision with tenderness, grace, majesty and naturalness all sublimely expressing themselves ensemble and marvellous to behold.

Seeing Lord Krishna's human form so enchanting and delightful Arjuna's mind was restored to its natural tranquillity and he became placated.


Since the Supreme Lord Krishna had exhibited His original two-armed form it is said that He has taken a human form but it should be understood that the form of the Supreme Lord Krishna has a purely spiritual body which is completely transcendental to material nature being saccidannanda meaning sat or eternal existence, cit or unlimited consciousness and ananda or endless bliss.


Being comforted and consoled by Lord Krishna in such a compassionate manner and beholding Him now in His charming human form with unprecedented attributes such as unlimited beauty, strength, compassion, omniscience etc. Arjuna was no longer agitated and was able to compose himself and restore his mind to its normal peaceful equilibrium.


Thus being consoled by Lord Krishna and free from agitation and fear, Arjuna states that he has recovered from his despair and is once again self- composed, serene and clear.
