Srimad Bhagavadgita Sadhaka Sanjivani -Swami Ramsukhdas
Appendix:—Arjuna, regarding himself as incapable (undeserving) requests the Lord to show him His cosmic divine form if He so wills. But the Lord asks him to behold His hundreds and thousands forms. It proves that, if something is left at God's will, it is more beneficial than what is desired with one's own will, and expected with one's own intellect. The reason is that a man may learn several sciences, arts and crafts etc., study several scriptures, yet his intellect is meagre and limited. The more simple (innocent), helpless and free from pride a striver is, the more he will know about God. Pride is an obstacle in the way of knowing God. The more sensible a man thinks himself to be, the more insensible he remains. By assuming himself sensible, he becomes a slave to sensibility. The more free from the pride of sensibility he is, the more sensible he is.
