Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 10
Vibhuti Yoga

Tatparya Nirnaya :- In whatever things the form of Sri Vishnu appears effulgent or his attributes manifested, those are, verily His resplendence. Manifesting as (the four faced) Brahma, He becomes the reason for aggregation of divinities. Having established as the predominant goal in Saama Veda, He appears as साम, predominant in all vedic scriptures. Similarly established as the immutable अश्वत्थ, Hari elevates the wish-fulfilling अश्वत्थ tree. Thus the principle of manifestation.
Having been asked „in which various forms‟ it becomes clear that His manifestations are distinct forms from the forms of (four-faced) Brahma, Gods and Jivas. The splendour is experienced in two fold manner, either from direct perception or through supra-sensory experience. The resplendence as Kapila, Vyasa and Krishna are known through direct perception as distinct from the forms of (four-faced) Brahma, Jivas and other gross objects. However, abiding in such objects and energizing the distinctive nature in them, is the supra-sensory illumination (of the Lord).
