<< Chapter 18 Verse 45


yataḥ pravṛttir bhūtānāṁ
yena sarvam idaṁ tatam
sva-karmaṇā tam abhyarcya
siddhiṁ vindati mānavaḥ

Whence all beings evolve,[1. ‘Activity’ may also be used to translate pravṛitti or ‘Poteny’ meaning ‘power for action’ as contrasted with latency.] by Whom all this is pervaded. Him doth man, worshipping by his acts, attain.’

Man attains perfection, i.e., attains Myself by My grace granted, when he worships Me as the Inner Soul abiding in Indra etc., —Me, from whom all beings originate, move etc., and by Whom all this is pervaded. That everything originates from Me alone, and that by Me is all pervaded, has already been declared in such Stanzas as:

‘I am the Origin as well as the End of all the Kosmos’: (Gi: VII-6); ‘There is naught else higher than I, Dhanañjaya!’ (Gi: VII-7); ‘By Me is all this Kosmos filled —by My subtle form’: (Gi: IX-41); ‘By Me the Supervisor, matter begets all mutables and immutables’ (Gi: IX-10); ‘I am the Source of all, from Me all operates’: (Gi: X-8), and so on.
