|Chapter 11: The Universal Form|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Bhagavad-gita As It Is 11.19
pasyami tvam dipta-hutasa-vaktram
sva-tejasa visvam idam tapantam
anadi -- without beginning; madhya -- middle; antam -- or end; ananta -- unlimited; viryam -- glories; ananta -- unlimited; bahum -- arms; sasi -- the moon; surya -- and sun; netram -- eyes; pasyami -- I see; tvam -- You; dipta -- blazing; hutasa-vaktram -- fire coming out of Your mouth; sva-tejasa -- by Your radiance; visvam -- universe; idam -- this; tapantam -- heating.
You are without origin, middle or end. Your glory is unlimited. You have numberless arms, and the sun and moon are Your eyes. I see You with blazing fire coming forth from Your mouth, burning this entire universe by Your own radiance.
There is no limit to the extent of the six opulences of the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Here and in many other places there is repetition, but according to the scriptures, repetition of the glories of Krishna is not a literary weakness. It is said that at a time of bewilderment or wonder or of great ecstasy, statements are repeated over and over. That is not a flaw.
