Simple Translation

Whichever creature is having glories which are controlled by it, having radiance and is fixed on starting auspicious activities, you know that those creatures acquired that from a fraction of my controlling ability.

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

‘Whatever thing is beaming with glory, prosperous or brilliant, know you that as solely emanated from a scintilla of My glory.’

  1. Whatever things exist which manifest the glory of being under My direction (vibhūtimat) ;
  2. Whatever things exist which are splendid and grand, or prosperous in kind or coin;
  3. Whatever things are seen attended with enthusiasm and eclat in any undertaking;


Know them all as arising from but a fraction of My glory. Glory or tejas is irresistible Energy or Power. All the glories that are manifested, know, as springing from a fragment of My directive Power, out of My inconceivable Power.
