<< Chapter 10 verse 38


yac cāpi sarva-bhūtānāṁ
bījaṁ tad aham arjuna
na tad asti vinā yat syān
mayā bhūtaṁ carācaram

‘And what the seed of all things is, Arjuna! that
itself I am.[1. Cp. Bh: Gī: XIV-4 and Bhāg: XI-16.] Mutable or immutable, nothing exists that, without Me, can exist.[2. Cp. Bh: Gī: VII-6.5]’

What the seed (or soul) is in all things, in whatever condition they be, manifest or inferred (or immanifest) I am that.

Whatever sum of things may be deemed to exist, without Me as their ātma, it cannot so exist.

The purport throughout, thus, —from :—‘I am ātma, Gudākeśa! enthroned in the hearts of all beings’ (Gītā: X-20), up to, ‘Movable or immovable, nothing exists without Me but with Me’ (Gītā: X-39),—is that the Lord exists in all things as ātma (or Spirit). All things in all conditions are ever united with Me as ātma (Spirit). It is evident from this that what is intended to be shown by sāmānādhi-karaṇya, (or communal existence of substance and attribute as one object) is the fact of the Lord dwelling in all things as Spirit (ātma), (or that all things have only a relative existence with reference to the Absolute Spirit).
