(Bhashya and Tatparya Nirnaya)


Chapter 11
Vishvarupadarshana Yoga

37. Why should they not, indeed, pay you homage, O Exalted One, who is greater than Brahma, the original creator? O Eternal Lord of the gods, refuge of the worlds, You are the imperishable Being and non-Being and that which is beyond as well.
Bhashya :- In reply to the circumstances how the Lord is to be propitiated Sri Krishna clarifies the manner declaring that the Lord as the Supreme Self is completely energized. “Since He is pervading all, is the controller of all and dispenser of the fruits of actions, abiding in the body enjoys the sense objects and since His existence is eternal, He is known as आत्मा – the Self”, thus in Bhagavat Puraana - “He is superior to both Sat and a-sat in the world”. 38 - 39. You are the primal Lord, the ancient Person, the supreme Abode of the universe, the knower and that which is to be known, the supreme Goal. By Your infinite form is this universe pervaded.. You are Vayu, Yama, Agni, Varuna, Moo, Lord of creatures and the grandsire. Obeisance, obeisance to You, thousand times. Obeisance, obeisance yet again to you.
Tatparya Nirnaya :- वा symbolizes strength and Aya means wisdom; therefore, Vayu because of the association of strength and wisdom. Since the Lord is fully content, Moon becomes the symbol. Since He is resplendent, therefore Indra, the chief of the Gods is symbol. Thus the Lord is symbolized in many manners.
