THE BOOK OF KOSMIC VISION

PROEM

THUS, in order to kindle affection for the Divine (bhakti) and inflame the same, the nature of Divinity as ensouling all things, accompanied with the expression of the multitude of blessed Divine attributes, —unique, and essentially characterising that Divine nature— was dwelt upon; and that contingent on such Nature, the relation to It as body, of all the differing natures viz., the sum of Intelligent (chit) and Non-intelligent (achit) entities, and their derivation from Divine Nature, of their very substance, being and movement, were also dwelt on.

Having heard thus from the Blessed Lord Himself, the singularity of Divine Nature, and the dependence of all things on Him for their very being, living and moving, Arjuna brought home to himself the conviction that such was the truth; but desirous of perceptually demonstrating to himself the same, Arjuna queries again:

[Conformable to Arjuna’s desire, he is going to sight Divinity, as will be apparent further on in verse:

‘All-wonderful, Resplendent, Infinite, All-faced (Gi: XI-II).

‘The whole Kosmos located There in a part, and diversifiedly manifold’ (Gi: XI-13).]

Simple Translation (based on puththUr krishNamAchArya swAmy’s thamizh translation)

Just as the moths enter flaming fire with great speed to die, the warriors enter your blazing mouths with great speed to die.

Rendering based on ALkoNdavilli gOvindhAchArya swAmy’s English translation of gIthA bhAshyam

‘Like unto the moths, precipitating into the
flaming fire, to die, so do these men hurl headlong into Your mouths.’

Like unto the rapid currents of river-waters speeding into the ocean, and like unto the moths fleeing into the blazing fire, so do these countless kings of men furiously rush into Your fiery mouths, to meet annihilation.
