Śrī Kṛishṇa answered:

‘That, My Form, that you have seen, is most hard to see. Even Devas do ever long to see this Form.’

That Form of Mine, displaying Me as the Universal Director, as the Universal Asylum, as the Cause of all etc., — which you have seen,— is most inaccessible for any one to see.

Why?
