Srimad Bhagavad Gita -Ramanujacharya

Chapter-10 Vibhūti Yogaḥ

Manifestation of Divine Glories


Summary of the Teaching

In order to generate and to foster the development of Bhakti Yoga, Krishna taught that He is the Over-Self of all beings. A narration of His unique characteristic auspicious attributes was given. Bhakti Yoga with its preparatory disciplines was taught. Now, in order to further cultivate and nurture devotion, it will now be taught that the totality of the Lord’s auspicious attributes are infinite, that His sovereignty over the whole universe is unrivalled, and that the universe is governed by His will as it constitutes His corporeal manifestation (śarīra), with Him for its Self.

śrī bhagavān uvāca

bhūya eva mahā-bāho śṛṇu me paramaṃ vacaḥ |
yatte’haṃ prīyamāṇāya vakṣyāmi hita-kāmyayā || 1 ||

The Blessed Lord said;

1. Further, O Arjuna, listen to My supreme teaching, which, desirous of your welfare, I shall impart
to you who love Me.


“Listen with rapt attention to these words which I shall speak — a consummate teaching which will give you a much broader understanding of My greatness. I shall teach you about the arising and development of devotion to Me, as you’re pleased with listening to My greatness and because I too love you.”
