sarvaṁ samāpnoṣi tato ’si sarvaḥ

‘O Infinite Energy! of infinite prowess art Thou. Thou dost interpenetrate all things. So art Thou the All1‘.

O Infinite Energy! Thy valour is beyond measure. As Soul (or Spirit), Thou dost enter into all things. Hence Thou art the All, for Thou art the Soul of all the multitude of entities, the Intelligent and the Non-intelligent. All the Intelligent and the Non-intelligent Principles constitute Thy body, and are related to Thee as Thy modes. Hence Thou art the Substance or Kernel, of which all else is but mode; and every name is a name of Thee. It is clear the immanent or omnipresent character of God (in Spirit) is the rationale of all such descriptions as: ‘Thou art Akshara, Sat, Asat’ etc, (Gi: xi-37); ‘Vāyu, Yama, Agni (etc., art Thou)’ (Gi: xi-39); known as the method of ‘Common reference of predicates’ (sāmānādhikāraṇya). Of similar import are also the passages: ‘O of Infinite Form! pervaded by Thee is all the Kosmos’ (Gi: xi-38); ‘Thou dost interpenetrate all’ (Gi: xi-40); etc.
