Chapter 11
Vishvarupadarshana Yoga

If brilliance of thousands Suns were to blaze forth all at once in the sky, that light might then resemble, (perhaps) the splendour of that Great Being.
Bhashya :- सहस means innumerable. Like the thousands of heroic deeds, for elucidation of the eternal power and eternal energy, resplendent splendor even exceeding the Sun, in Rig Veda, therefore no use to compare it with anything else.

Then, Arjuna struck with wonder and with his hair standing on ends, bowed down his head to the Lord, with folded hands and said: I see gods in your body, O Lord, and especially the multitude of beings and also Shiva on Brahma‟s lap settled on the lotus seat, seers as well as all the divine nagas. With innumerable arms, stomachs, faces and eyes I am seeing Your innumerable forms on all sides. I see neither the end not the middle nor again the beginning, O Lord of the universe, O universal form !
