Chapter 10: The Opulence of the Absolute

Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Bhagavad-gītā As It Is 10.40

nānto 'sti mama divyānām

vibhūtīnām parantapa

esha tūddeśatah prokto

vibhūter vistaro mayā


na — nor; antaha limit; asti — there is; mama — My; divyānām — of the divine; vibhūtīnām — opulences; parantapaO conqueror of the enemies; eshah — all this; tu — but; uddeśatahas examples; proktah — spoken; vibhūteh — of opulences; vistarah — the expanse; mayā — by Me.


O mighty conqueror of enemies, there is no end to My divine manifestations. What I have spoken to you is but a mere indication of My infinite opulences.


As stated in the Vedic literature, although the opulences and energies of the Supreme are understood in various ways, there is no limit to such opulences; therefore not all the opulences and energies can be explained. Simply a few examples are being described to Arjuna to pacify his inquisitiveness.
