The Universal Form
Chapter 11: Verse-6

pasyädityän vasün rudrän asvinau marutas tathä
bahüny adrsta-pürväni pasyäscaryäni bhärata[1]


O best of the Bhäratas, see here the different manifestations of Ädityas, Vasus, Rudras, Asvini-kumäras and all the other demigods. Behold the many wonderful things which no one has ever seen or heard of before.


Even though Arjuna was a personal friend of krsna and the most advanced of learned men, it was still not possible for him to know everything about Krsna. Here it is stated that humans have neither heard nor known of all these forms and manifestations. Now krsna reveals these wonderful forms.



  1. pasya=see; ädityän=the twelve sons of Aditi; vasün=the eight Vasus; rudrän=the eleven forms of Rudra; asvinau=the two Asvinis; marutah=the forty-nine Maruts demigods of the wind; tathä=also; bahüni=many; adrsta=that you have not seen; pürväni=before; pasya=see; äscaryäni=all the wonders; bhärata=O best of the Bhäratas.
