<< Chapter 11 verse 7


na tu māṁ śakyase draṣṭum
anenaiva sva-cakṣuṣā
divyaṁ dadāmi te cakṣuḥ
paśya me yogam aiśvaram

‘By thy this eye alone, thou wilt not indeed be
able to see Me: I grant thee the Divine eye1: See My Sovereign Yoga.’

I shall reveal My Kosmic glory, all confined but to a small space in My frame. But with thy physical eye, fitted only to see limited and conditioned objects, thou wilt not be able to realize that sight, unique, beyond example, and beyond measure. Hence let Me confer on thee that Divya or spiritual (immaterial) eye, capable of seeing Me.

See My Sovereign Yoga; Sovereign means: matchless or extraordinary. Yoga=(i) the assemblage or juncture of attributes, Omniscience etc., and (2) the centre of all displayed magnificence (vibhūti).

>> Chapter 11 verse 9
