CHAPTER 11

• Arjuan said : By my hearing the instructions you have kindly given me about these most confidential spiritual subjects, my illusion has now been dispelled.

• If you think that I am able to behold your cosmic form, O my lord, O master of all mystic power, then kindly show me that unlimited universal self.

• The supreme personality of Godhead said: My dear Arjun, O son of Pritha, see now my opulences, hundreds of thousands of varied divine and multicolored forms.

• But you cannot see Me with your present eyes. Therefore I give you divine eyes. Behold My mystic opulence.

• Arjun said: My dear Lord Krishna, I see assembled in your body all the demigods and various other living entities. I see Brahma sitting on the lotus flower, as well as lord siva and all the sages and divine serpents.

• As the many waves of the rivers flow into the ocean, so do all these great warriors enter blazing into your mouths.

• The supreme Personality of Godhead said: Time I am, the great destroyer of the worlds, and I have come here to destroy all people. With the expection of you, all the soldiers here on both sides will be slain.

• Therefore get up. Prepare to fight and win glory. Conquer your enemies and enjoy a flourishing kingdom. They are already put to death by My arrangement, and you, O Savyasachi, can be but an instrument in the fight.

• You are the original Personality of Godhead, the oldest, the ultimate sanctuary of this manifested cosmic world. You are the supreme refuge, above the material modes. O limitless form! This whole cosmic manifestation is pervaded by you.

• Yor are air, and You are the supreme controller! You are fire, you are water, and you the moon ! You are Brahma, the first living creature, and you are the great-grandfather. I therefore offer my respectful obeisances unto you a thousand times, and again and yet again!

• My dear Arjun, only by undivided devotional service can I be understood as I am, standing before you, and can thus be seen directly. Only in this way can you enter into the mysteries of my understanding.

• My dear Arjun, he who engages in My pure devotional service , free from the contaminations of fruitive activities and mental speculation, he who works for me, who makes me the supreme goal of his life, and who is friendly to every living being- he certainly comes to Me.
