nabhahsprsam diptamanekavarnam vyattananam diptavisalanetram
drstva hi tvam pravyathitantaratma dhrtim na vindami samam ca visno
When I see Your form, touching the sky, effulgent in many colours, with mouths wide open, with large shining eyes, my heart trembles with fear, I Iose courage and find no peace, O Visnu.24
[In the twentieth verse, Arjuna described the Lord's height and breadth, while here he describes His tremendous height, only.]
Visnu:- Arjuna says that it was the all-pervading Lord Visnu Himself, Who incarnated as Krsna, in order to lighten the burden of the earth.
Diptamanekavarnam:- The Lord's terrible cosmic form, was multicoloured and effulgent.
Nabhahsprsam:- His form was so tall, that it was touching the sky. It means, that as far as Arjuna could see he beheld the cosmic form of the Lord meeting the sky. It indicates, that even divine sight could not have access to the end, of the limitless cosmic form of the Lord.
Vyatlananadr diptavisalanetram:-Just like a wild beast, the Lord's mouth was wide open, to ingest the entire universe. His eyes were large, shining and fiery.
Drstva hi tvam pravyathitantaralmn dhrlim na vindami samam ca visno:- Arjuna says, that he was very much frightened at the sight of the Lord's cosmic form, and he lost his courage, self control and peace of mind.
Here a question arises, that Arjuna besides being a valiant warrior of extraordinary calibre, was blessed with divine eye by the Lord, yet he trembled with fear, while beholding the Lord's cosmic form, but Safijaya was not terror-stuck. Why?
The answer is, that saints say that Bhisma, Vidura, Safijaya and Kunti, knew the Lord in reality, while Arjuna did not know Him fully. Arjuna s, delusion was not completely destroyed (11/49). So, he trembled with fear. But Sanjaya, knew the reality, about the Lord viz., he had delusion. So Saiijaya was not terror-struck.
