<< Chapter 11 verse 46


śrī-bhagavān uvāca
mayā prasannena tavārjunedaṁ
rūpaṁ paraṁ darśitam ātma-yogāt
tejo-mayaṁ viśvam anantam ādyaṁ
yan me tvad anyena na dṛṣṭa-pūrvam

‘In graceful response, Arjuna! this Form of
Mine, transcendent, has by My will, to thee been unveiled; (Form) Glorious, all-Souled, Infinite, and First, and Such as not seen before by other than thee.’

Tejo-maya=Glorious=a mass of light or flood of brilliant light.

Viśvam=All-Soul, or pervading all things as Spirit.

Anantam=Endless=Infinite; meaning having neither beginning nor middle nor end.

Ādyam=First=He Who is Prior to all else besides Me.

Thou art My votary (bhakta). To thee therefore has been revealed, out of grace, a Spectacle never before been witnessed by any other.

Ātma-yoga=Own free-will=Immutable or Infallible will.

It is now shown that by no means whatever, except by exclusive Bhakti, is it possible to realize Me as I am:
