Conclusion—The Perfection of Renunciation
Chapter 18: Verse- 77

tac ca samsmrtya samsmrtya rüpam aty-adbhutam hareh
vismayo me mahän räjan hrsyämi ca punahpunah[1]


O King, as I remember the wonderful form of Lord Krsna, I am struck with wonder more and more, and I rejoice again and again.


It appears that Sanjaya also, by the grace of Vyäsa, could see the universal form krsna exhibited to Arjuna. It is, of course, said that Lord krsna had never exhibited such a form before. It was exhibited to Arjuna only, yet some great devotees could also see the universal form of krsna when it was shown to Arjuna, and Vyäsa was one of them. He is one of the great devotees of the Lord, and he is considered to be a powerful incarnation of Krsna. Vyäsa disclosed this to his disciple Sanjaya, who remembered that wonderful form of Krsna exhibited to Arjuna and enjoyed it repeatedly.
