The Universal Form
Chapter 11: Verse-19

anädi-madhyäntam ananta-viryam ananta-bähum sasi-sürya-netram
pasyämi tväm dipta-hutäsa-vaktram sva-tejasä visvam idam tapantam [1]


You are without origin, middle or end. Your glory is unlimited. You have numberless arms, and the sun and moon are Your eyes. I see You with blazing fire coming forth from Your mouth, burning this entire universe by Your own radiance.


There is no limit to the extent of the six opulences of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Here and in many other places there is repetition, but according to the scriptures, repetition of the glories of krsna is not a literary weakness. It is said that at a time of bewilderment or wonder or of great ecstasy, statements are repeated over and over. That is not a flaw.



  1. anädi=without beginning; madhya=middle; antam=or end;
    ananta=unlimited; viryam=glories; ananta=unlimited; bähum=arms; sasi=the moon; sürya=and sun; netram=eyes; pasyämi=I see; tväm=You; dipta=blazing; hutäsa-vaktram=fire coming out of Your mouth; sva-tejasä=by Your radiance; visvam=universe; idam=this;
