The Yoga of the Universal Form:
On the confrontation with the complete of His reality.
Verses 5 to 13, 15 to 18, 38 & 39.
The Supreme Lord said: 'O son of Prthâ, behold the hundreds and thousands of the variegated divine of My diverse forms and colors.
Just see the [twelve] Âditiyas, [eight]Vasus, [eleven] Rudra's, [two] Asvins [demigods for the longevity] , [fourty-nine] Maruts as also the many of all the wonders you did not see before, o best of the Bhârata's.
See here and now the universe completely, all at the same time, with all that moves and not moves, in this body of Mine, o conqueror of sleep, and also whatever else you wish to see.
But certainly you will never be able to see Me with your normal eyes; divine eyes I give you to perceive My Divine Union.'
Sanjaya said: "O King, after having spoken thus, the Great Lord of Yoga, the Supreme Personality, showed Arjuna the beyond of the Universal Form.
Many mouths, eyes and many diverse wonderful sights, many divine ornaments, and a variety of uplifted weapons, heavenly garlands, the wear of dresses with divine fragrances and ointments, were all wonderful and shining, extending to all sides.
If there were the light of the simultaneous presence of many thousands of suns in the sky, such might resemble the effulgence of Him, the Greatness of the Soul.
There Arjuna then could, in the universal form of the God of Gods, see in one the complete universe divided in many.
Arjuna said: 'I see all the gods and all living entities assembled in Your body, o Lord; Lord Brahmâ seated on the lotus and Lord Shiva, and also the great sages and all serpents.
Many arms, trunks, mouths and eyes I see, on all sides I see an unlimited form with no end, no middle nor again Your beginning, o Lord of the Universe, o Universal Form.
With crowns, maces and discs and an effulgence on all sides I have difficulty seeing you glowing everywhere as the immeasurable blazing fire of the radiating sun.
You are to be understood as the Infallible Supreme of this universe, You are the basis of the beyond, You are the inexhaustible maintainer of all religion and the eternal Original Personality You are -that is what I think.
You are the original God and person, the oldest of this universe, the transcendental refuge and the knower; You are the knowable, the beyond and the abode, by You the universe is pevaded o infinite form!
You are the controller of the air, the fire, the water and the moon, You are the Brahmâ and the great grandfather, again and again I offer you my respects; a thousand times over and over I offer You My obeisances.
