The Opulence of the Absolute
Chapter 10: Verse-29

anantas cäsmi nägänäm varuno yädasäm aham
pitinäm aryamä cäsmi yamah saàyamatäm aham[1]


Of the many-hooded Nägas I am Ananta, and among the aquatics I am the demigod Varuna. Of departed ancestors I am Aryamä, and among the dispensers of law I am Yama, the lord of death.


Among the many-hooded Näga serpents, Ananta is the greatest, as is the demigod Varuëa among the aquatics. They both represent Krsna. There is also a planet of Pitäs, ancestors, presided over by Aryamä, who represents Krsna. There are many living entities who give punishment to the miscreants, and among them Yama is the chief. Yama is situated in a planet near this earthly planet. After death those who are very sinful are taken there, and Yama arranges different kinds of punishments for them.



  1. anantah=Ananta; ca=also; asmi=I am; nägänäm=of the many-hooded serpents; varunah=the demigod controlling the water; yädasäm=of all aquatics; aham=I am; pitinäm=of the ancestors; aryamä=Aryamä; ca=also; asmi=I am; yamah=the controller of death; samyamatäm=of all regulators; aham=I am.
