Bhagavad Gita -Sri Madhvacharya

(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 11
Vishvarupadarshana Yoga

5 – 6 – 7 – 8 - 9. The Resplendent Lord said: Behold My form, O Partha, which is hundredfold, thousand old and divine in diverse forms of various colours and forms. Behold with wonder, O Arjuna the Adityas, Vasus, Rudras, Ashvins and similarly Maruts, many never seen earlier. Behold the entire universe, moving and the unmoving in My body, O Arjuna, and also whatever you desire to see. You will not be able to see Me by these eyes of yours (therefore) I will grant you divine sight. Behold the brilliance of My Resplendence. Sanjaya said : Having spoken in this manner, O King, Hari, the Supreme Lord of Yoga revealed to Partha, His supreme and brilliant form.
Bhashya :- He is known as Hari, since he partakes the libations in all the sacrifices. “In the sacrificial hall, I partake share of the oblation called ida and in the households the offerings of the food given. Among the colours the best of the blue shade is Mine. Therefore, I am known as Hari”, thus, in Moksha Dharma.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- form of his Self, which was immutable and of supreme resplendence. wonderful was the form of the Lord, infinite and of universally extensive. Enumerating in this manner the various special forms the diversity of the manifest forms of the Lord‟s blissful consciousness is conclusively established. Having used the statement - In my body the difference between him and the forms like Aditya, sun and others is concluded. Aving used statements like My forms, entirely innumerable form, would like to see your forms, the fifference between the Lord and His forms is firmly established.
