maya prasannena tavarjunedam rupatis param darsitamatmayogat
tejomayam visvamanantamadyam yanme tvadanyena na drstapurvam
The Blessed Lord said:-
Arjuna, being pleased with you, I have shown you through My power of Yoga, this supreme, shining primal and infinite Universal Form, which none but you, has ever seen. 47
Maya prasannena tavarjunedam rapam darsitam:- O Arjuna! You are time and again, saying "Be kind to me" (11/25, 31, 45). But I have neither revealed to you this terrible cosmic form out of anger, to frighten you nor because of your qualifications, deserving nature, or devotion. It was because of your desire to behold My universal form, that I by My grace bestowed upon you divine eyes to have a vision of this form. It means, that it was only out of compassion, that being pleased with you, I enabled you to behold My cosmic form. Your desire was merely an instrument.
At the end of the tenth chapter in the forty-first verse, I told you wherever any excellence is seen, that is My glory. Thus, I completed My reply to your question. In the last verse of the tenth chapter, of my own initiative I told you, "You need not know much, whatever is seen or heard or grasped in the world, that comes from within a fragment of My body." Further, I told you, "You need not know My glories and divine power, when the base of all glories and divine power, I Myself am standirg before you." I told you all these things, out of My special divine grace. Then you expressed your desire, to behold the cosmic form and I revealed it to you, by blessing you with divine eyes. This is out of My pleasure and grace only. Therefore you need not fear at all.
Atmayogat:- I have revealed to you this universal form, through My own power of Yoga.
Param:- This cosmic form is supreme.
Tejomayam:- This form is glittering and effulgent. So, you said that it was hard to look at, even with divine eyes (11/17).
Visvam:- This universal form of Mine is all-pervading and you yourself have addressed Me as Visvarupa' and Visvamurte' (Universal Form).
Anantamsdyam:- This universal form of Mine, is without beginning and an end, because it is primal and without cause.
