What did Shri Krishna tell Arjuna About His Many Forms?

Shri Bhagwan said____ O great arms Arjuna, you still listen to My supreme word, which I will say with the desire of good luck to you who have a great love for me!

Neither the gods nor the Maharishi knows about my appearance because I am the origin of the gods and the great sages in all respects.

The man who knows Me as the unborn, eternal, and the great God of all the worlds, that is, firmly (without doubt) accepts him, he is the wisest of men and he becomes free from all sins.

Wisdom, knowledge, dissatisfaction, forgiveness, truth, sorrow, origin, destruction, fear, fear, fearlessness and non-violence, equanimity, contentment, austerity, charity, fame, and failure.

The seven Maharishis and the four sanakadis and the fourteen Manus who preceded them, all of them were born from my mind and are the ones who have devotion (reverence) in me, in whose world these whole subjects are!

A person who knows this divine and yoga (Samatrya) of mine from the essence, that is, accepts it firmly (without doubt), becomes full of unwavering devotional yoga, there is nothing in doubt about it!

Considering that I am only the influence of the world and the whole world is being influenced by me, that is, making efforts, keeping faith and love in me, intelligent devotees worship me in all respects, they are my refuge in every way!

Those with the mind in me and those who surrender their lives in me (devotees) knowing and narrating among themselves (my qualities, effects, etc.) are constantly satisfied and love in me.

To those devotees who are constantly engaged in Me and worship Me with love, I give that intellect yoga to them by which they attain Me.

In order to be kind to those devotees, I, who reside in their form (being-ness), destroy the darkness born of their ignorance with a lamp in the form of resplendent knowledge.

Arjun said____ Param Brahma, the supreme abode and the great holy You are the Eternal Divine Person, the Adi Dev, the unborn and all-pervading, all the sages call you, Devarshi Narada, Asit Deval, and Vyasa, and you yourself also say this to Me!

O Keshav, whatever you are saying to me, I believe it to be true, O Lord, neither the gods nor the demons know about your appearance!

O Bhoot Bhavan, O Bhutesh, O God Dev, O Jagatpate, O Purushottama, you know yourself from yourselves!

That is why you are capable of fully describing all your transcendental manifestations by which you are situated by pervading all these worlds.

O yogin, how can I know you by constantly meditating on the song, and in what ways can you be meditated upon by me, oh Lord, in what ways should I contemplate on you!

O Janardan, tell me again in detail about your yoga (power) and glories, because listening to your nectar-filled words, I am not satisfied!
Shri Bhagwan said____ Yes, well I will say my transcendental glories to you first (briefly) because O Kurukshetha there is no end to the expansion of my glories!

O Arjuna, I am the beginning, middle, and end of all the creations, I am the matter to be made in the disciplines of spiritual science (Brahmavidya) and those who argue with each other (for the principle of decision).

Among the oppressors, I am the policy of punishment and among those who seek victory, I am the silence in secret feelings and I am the knowledge among the wise.

And I am the seed (the root cause) of all beings, O Arjuna because that variable is not a constant being without Me, that is, I am everything that is constant.

Oh but Arjuna is not the end of my transcendental glories. The detail of my (my) glories that I have said in front of you, this is just a brief summary.

Whatever opulence-rich, graceful and powerful creature, and substance are, consider it to be born out of a part of my own effulgence (yoga i.e. power).

Or O Arjuna, why do you need to know so many things when I am situated in one part of me pervading the whole world, that is, the infinite universe is in one part of me!
