Vibhuti Yoga

9 – 10 – 11 -12 – 13 – 14 – 15- 16 - 17. With their thoughts on Me, their life given over to Me, enlightening each other, ever conversing about Me, they remain contented and rejoice Among them those who being ever composure worship Me lovingly, to them I grant the equanimity of intellect, by which they attain Me. Out of compassion, remaining in their Self as the lamp of Wisdom, I destroy the obscurity arising in them from non-awareness, whereby they may attain Me. Arjuna said: You are the supreme Brahman, the supreme Abode, the Pure. You are the eternal, the Divine Person, the Primal Divinity, the unborn, the allpervading.. All the Seers speak in this manner about you, the divine seer Narada as well as Asita, Devala, Vyasa and now even You Yourself also speak thus to Me. All this I consider to be true what You, O Keshava, have spoken to me. Not for nothing that gods and the demons have no knowledge of Your Divine manifestation. Even You, Best of the persons, have known yourself by Your Self, the source of beings, O Lord of Creatures, God of the Gods, Lord of the Worlds. You should speak, about your divine manifestations of Yours without leaving out anything , by which you abide pervading in all these manifest worlds. How may I be able to know You, the equanimous One, by constant reflection? In which various aspects are You to be thought of by me, O Lord ?
Bhashya :- Brahman is entirely complete. Why is Brahman called the supreme? Because, He is complete and makes others also complete, say the Scriptures. बृहं बूहि from these roots to suggest to expand. “Supreme is the Great Brahman”, thus it is said. Since it assumes various forms, it is said to be all-pervading, thus in Varuna section. “AlI pervading, Energiser the First among all. He, verily, expands to become the many”. “He willed, Let Me be many”. “विविधभूतयो विभूतय: |” विभूतय: means विविधभूतय: various manifest forms.
