Bhashya :- Whatever was said in previous verses is further reiterated here. The objective is spoken here. The Self which is abiding in all the creatures is the Supreme Lord. All the creatures too exist in the Self, which is the supreme Lord. He sees the supreme Lord in Brahman as well as in the blade of grass equally in all their glory. He sees the supreme Lord abiding as self in all the creatures, and sees all the creatures in the Self of the supreme Lord. The Supreme Lord abides in all creatures in equal measure.
