‘More and more do I joy, King! the oftener and
oftener I recollect this Marvellous and Holy Colloquy between Keśava and Arjuna.’

Inasmuch as this wondrous and sanctifying Dialogue between Keśava and Arjuna was directly (through the power of distant hearing) heard by me, my joy, the more passes measure, the more I bring it (Dialogue) to my memory.

Simple

vyāsa-prasādāc chrutavān
etad guhyam ahaṁ param
yogaṁ yogeśvarāt kṛṣṇāt
sākṣāt kathayataḥ svayam

‘What, direct by Krishna Himself —the Lord of
Yoga,— was narrated, that most Mysterious and Exalted Yoga, I did, by Vyāsa’s blessings, hear.’

By Vyāsa’s blessings = By Vyāsa’s grace, obtaining the divine (or spiritual) eyes and ears.1

That or the Mystery known by the denomination of Yoga:

The Lord of Yoga (Yogeśvara): The Lord, Who is the Treasury of Wisdom, Prowess, Empire, Energy and Power,2 —LORD KṚISHṆA.

What He (Kṛishṇa) in person did discourse, I directly heard (by means of the boon of the clairaudient faculty conferred on me by Vyāsa for the time being).

  1. These are the preternatural faculties of clairvoyance and clairaudience developed in adepts etc.
  2. Vide verses 6 and 18, Bk. X, where ‘Yoga’ was explained by Rāmānuja as meaning the ‘union’ of divine attributes with Divinity (= the God of Perfect Qualities).
