Srimad  Bhagavad-Gita :

Chapter-13. ( Kshetra-kshetrajna-vibhaga-yogam )

Slokam-4. ( Now please hear My brief description of this field of activity and how it is constituted, what its changes are, whence it is produced, who that knower of the field of activities is, and what his influences are.)

tatkshetram  yacca  yadrkca  yadvikari  yatasca  yat,

sa  ca  yo  yat  prabhavasca  tat  samasena  me  srnu.

tat  kshetram  yat  ca  =  what  is  that  kshetram  ( body / field of activities );

yadrk  ca  =  how  it  is  ( as  it  is );

yadvikari  =  what  are  its  emotions ( changes );

yatah  ca  yat  =  from  which,  how  it  happened;

ca  =  not  only  that;

sah  yah  =  who  is  that  kshetrajnan;

yat  prabhavah  ca  =  what  are  his  glories;

tat  samasena  =  those  things,  briefly;

me  srnu  =  hear  from  Me.


The words yatas ca yat indicates that solely by the energy of the Supreme Lord all creation is energized.

He is the sole energizer.

Prerana means having similarity in thoughts.

Sometimes even dialogue is called samvad similar talk.

Since Lord Krishna energizes all creation He also energizes the thoughts of all and sometimes such thoughts manifest which are similar to His own.

This is natural.

So He is known as anusarini or anusmanta the ordainer of thoughts which have divine origins in Him.

The kshetrajna is the atma or eternal soul and is upadrishta or the witness with supra-natural connecting abilities for thoughts and things divine which emanate from the Supreme Lord and induces this in those who seek self-realisation of the atma and attainment of the ultimate consciousness.

Lord Krishna infers that this can be known is by its effect.
