Gita : Ch-13. Slo-4. Discussion-2.

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.
