<< Chapter 10 verse 7


ahaṁ sarvasya prabhavo
mattaḥ sarvaṁ pravartate
iti matvā bhajante māṁ
budhā bhāva-samanvitāḥ

‘I am the Origin of all; from Me operates everything. So do the wise comprehend Me, and with thoughts imbued with devotion, worship Me.’

I am the Origin, i.e., the Cause originating all the wonderful works displayed in creation, comprised of the Intelligent and Non-intelligent objects. And everything too derives its impulses, or energies required for action, from Me.

The wise are the illuminated sages (Jñānis). And they comprehend Me in My native character af the Independent Lord of Creation, and as Him Who is possessed of the illustrious attributes such as Condescending Simplicity (Sau-śīlya), Beauty (Saundarya), Affection ( Vātsalya) etc;

The wise worship Me in such aspects. They are bhāva-samanvitāḥ. Bhāva is a certain function or attitude of the mind, when it is directed to Me in loving devotion. The wise work their minds in order that it may enter into such a mood.
