Chapter 10


Lord Krishna said: O Arjuna, listen once again to My supreme word that I shall speak to you, who is very dear to Me, for your welfare.


Neither the celestial controllers, nor the great sages know My origin, because I am the origin of celestial controllers and great sages also.

One who knows Me as the unborn, the beginningless, and the Supreme Lord of the universe, is considered wise among the mortals, and becomes liberated from the bondage of Karma.

Discrimination, Self-knowledge, non-delusion, forgiveness, truthfulness, control over the mind and senses, tranquillity, pleasure, pain, birth, death, fear, fearlessness; nonviolence, equanimity, contentment, austerity, charity, fame, ill fame ¾ these diverse qualities in human beings arise from Me alone.

The great saints, sages, and all the creatures of the world were born from My potential energy.

One who truly understands My manifestations and yogic powers is united with Me by unswerving devotion. There is no doubt about it.

I am the origin of all. Everything emanates from Me. The wise ones who understand this adore Me with love and devotion.

My devotees remain ever content and delighted. Their minds remain absorbed in Me, and their lives surrendered unto Me. They always enlighten each other by talking about Me.


I give the knowledge and understanding of the metaphysical science ¾ to those who are ever united with Me and lovingly adore Me ¾ by which they come to Me.

I, who dwell within their inner psyche as consciousness, destroy the darkness born of ignorance by the shining lamp of transcendental knowledge as an act of compassion for them.

Arjuna said: You are the Supreme Being, the Supreme Abode, the Supreme Purifier, the Eternal Being, the primal God, the unborn, and the omnipresent. All saints and sages have thus acclaimed You, and now You Yourself are telling me.


O Krishna, I believe all that You have told me to be true. O Lord, neither the celestial controllers nor the demons fully understand Your real nature.

O Creator and Lord of all beings, God of all celestial rulers, the Supreme person, and Lord of the universe, You alone know Yourself by Yourself.

Therefore, You alone are able to fully describe Your own divine glories ¾ the manifestations ¾ by which You exist pervading all the universes.

How may I know You, O Lord, by constant contemplation? In what form of manifestation are You to be thought of by me, O Lord?

O Lord, explain to me again in detail, Your yogic power and glory; because I am not satiated by hearing Your nectar-like words.


Lord Krishna said: O Arjuna, now I shall explain to you My prominent divine manifestations, because My manifestations are endless.

O Arjuna, I am the Supreme Spirit (or Supersoul) abiding in the inner psyche of all beings. I am also the creator, maintainer, and destroyer ¾ or the beginning, the middle, and the end ¾ of all beings.

I am the sustainer, I am the radiant sun among the luminaries, I am the controller of wind, I am the moon among the stars.

I am the Vedas, I am the celestial rulers, I am the mind among the senses, I am the consciousness in living beings.

I am Lord Shiva, I am the god of wealth, I am the fire god, and the mountains.

I am the priest, and the army general of the celestial controllers, O Arjuna. I am the ocean among the bodies of water.

I am the monosyllable cosmic sound, OM, among the words; I am the chanting of mantra among the spiritual disciplines; and I am the Himalaya among the mountains.


I am the holy fig tree among the trees, Narada among the sages, and I am all other celestial rulers.

Know Me as the celestial animals among the animals, and the King among men. I am thunderbolt among the weapons, and I am the cupid for procreation.

I am the water-god, and the manes. I am the controller of death. I am the time or death among the healers, lion among the beasts, and the king of birds among birds.

I am the wind among the purifiers, and Lord Rama among the warriors. I am the crocodile among the fishes, and the holy Ganges river among the rivers.

I am the beginning, the middle, and the end of all creation, O Arjuna. Among the knowledge I am knowledge of the supreme Self. I am logic of the logician.

I am the letter "A" among the alphabets. I am the dual compound among the compound words. I am the endless time. I am the sustainer, and I am omniscient.

I am the all devouring death, and also the origin of future beings. I am the seven goddesses or guardian angels presiding over the seven qualities ¾ fame, prosperity, speech, memory, intellect, resolve, and forgiveness.

I am the Vedic and other hymns. I am the mantras, I am November-December among the months, I am the spring among the seasons.

I am gambling of the cheats; splendor of the splendid; victory of the victorious; resolution of the resolute; and goodness of the good.

I am Krishna, Vyasa, Arjuna, and the power of rulers, the statesmanship of the seekers of victory. I am silence among the secrets, and the Self-knowledge of the knowledgeable.

I am the origin of all beings, O Arjuna. There is nothing, animate or inanimate, that can exist without Me.


There is no end of My divine manifestations, O Arjuna. This is only a brief description by Me of the extent of My divine manifestations.

Whatever is endowed with glory, brilliance, and power; know that to be a manifestation of a very small fraction of My splendor.

What is the need for this detailed knowledge, O Arjuna? I continually support the entire universe by a very small fraction of My divine power.
