harvasyrryvi.tk/map8.php I am victory, I am adventure, and I am the strength of the strong. Of the sages I am Vyasa, and among great thinkers I am Usana. Among punishments I am the rod of chastisement, and of those who seek victory, I am morality. Of secret things I am silence, and of the wise I am wisdom. Furthermore, O Arjuna, I am the generating seed of all existences.
There is no being-moving or unmoving-that can exist without 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. But what need is there, Arjuna, for all this detailed knowledge? With a single fragment of Myself I pervade and support this entire universe. We Respect Your Privacy! Copyright c by His Divine Grace A. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada. Home Gallery.

Bhagavad Gita, Chapter The Opulence of the Absolute All wondrous phenomena showing power, beauty, grandeur or sublimity, either in the material world or in the spiritual, are but partial manifestations of Krishna's divine energies and opulence. Chapter 10, Verse 1 The Supreme Lord said: My dear friend, mighty-armed Arjuna, listen again to My supreme word, which I shall impart to you for your benefit and which will give you great joy. Chapter 10, Verse 2 Neither the hosts of demigods nor the great sages know My origin, for, in every respect, I am the source of the demigods and the sages.
Chapter 10, Verse 3 He who knows Me as the unborn, as the beginningless, as the Supreme Lord of all the worlds-he, undeluded among men, is freed from all sins. Chapter 10, Verse Intelligence, knowledge, freedom from doubt and delusion, forgiveness, truthfulness, self-control and calmness, pleasure and pain, birth, death, fear, fearlessness, nonviolence, equanimity, satisfaction, austerity, charity, fame and infamy are created by Me alone.
Chapter 10, Verse 6 The seven great sages and before them the four other great sages and the Manus [progenitors of mankind] are born out of My mind, and all creatures in these planets descend from them. Chapter 10, Verse 7 He who knows in truth this glory and power of Mine engages in unalloyed devotional service; of this there is no doubt. Chapter 10, Verse 8 I am the source of all spiritual and material worlds.
Chapter 10, Verse 9 The thoughts of My pure devotees dwell in Me, their lives are surrendered to Me, and they derive great satisfaction and bliss enlightening one another and conversing about Me. Chapter 10, Verse 10 To those who are constantly devoted and worship Me with love, I give the understanding by which they can come to Me. Chapter 10, Verse 11 Out of compassion for them, I, dwelling in their hearts, destroy with the shining lamp of knowledge the darkness born of ignorance.
Chapter 10, Verse Arjuna said: You are the Supreme Brahman, the ultimate, the supreme abode and purifier, the Absolute Truth and the eternal divine person. Chapter 10, Verse 16 Please tell me in detail of Your divine powers by which You pervade all these worlds and abide in them.
Chapter 10, Verse 17 How should I meditate on You? In what various forms are You to be contemplated, O Blessed Lord? Chapter 10, Verse 18 Tell me again in detail, O Janardana [Krsna], of Your mighty potencies and glories, for I never tire of hearing Your ambrosial words. Chapter 10, Verse 26 Of all trees I am the holy fig tree, and amongst sages and demigods I am Narada.
Chapter 10, Verse 27 Of horses know Me to be Uccaihsrava, who rose out of the ocean, born of the elixir of immortality; of lordly elephants I am Airavata, and among men I am the monarch. Chapter 10, Verse 28 Of weapons I am the thunderbolt; among cows I am the surabhi, givers of abundant milk. Chapter 10, Verse 30 Among the Daitya demons I am the devoted Prahlada; among subduers I am time; among the beasts I am the lion, and among birds I am Garuda, the feathered carrier of Visnu.
The first sort by thir own suggestion fell, Self-tempted, self- deprav'd : Man falls deceiv'd [ ] By the other first: Man therefore shall find grace, The other none: in Mercy and Justice both, Through Heav'n and Earth, so shall my glorie excel, But Mercy first and last shall brightest shine. Thus while God spake, ambrosial fragrance fill'd [ ] All Heav'n , and in the blessed Spirits elect Sense of new joy ineffable diffus'd : Beyond compare the Son of God was seen Most glorious, in him all his Father shon Substantially express'd , and in his face [ ] Divine compassion visibly appeerd , Love without end, and without measure Grace, Which uttering thus he to his Father spake.
O Father, gracious was that word which clos'd Thy sovran sentence, that Man should find grace; [ ] For which both Heav'n and Earth shall high extoll Thy praises, with th' innumerable sound Of Hymns and sacred Songs, wherewith thy Throne Encompass'd shall resound thee ever blest.

For should Man finally be lost, should Man [ ] Thy creature late so lov'd , thy youngest Son Fall circumvented thus by fraud, though joynd With his own folly? So should thy goodness and thy greatness both [ ] Be questiond and blaspheam'd without defence. To whom the great Creatour thus reply'd.
O Son, in whom my Soul hath chief delight, Son of my bosom, Son who art alone My word, my wisdom, and effectual might , [ ] All hast thou spok'n as my thoughts are, all As my Eternal purpose hath decreed: Man shall not quite be lost, but sav'd who will, Yet not of will in him, but grace in me Freely voutsaft ; once more I will renew [ ] His lapsed powers, though forfeit and enthrall'd By sin to foul exorbitant desires; Upheld by me, yet once more he shall stand On even ground against his mortal foe, By me upheld, that he may know how frail [ ] His fall'n condition is, and to me ow All his deliv'rance , and to none but me.
Some I have chosen of peculiar grace Elect above the rest; so is my will: The rest shall hear me call, and oft be warnd [ ] Thir sinful state, and to appease betimes Th' incensed Deitie while offerd grace Invites; for I will cleer thir senses dark, What may suffice, and soft'n stonie hearts To pray, repent, and bring obedience due. And I will place within them as a guide My Umpire Conscience, whom if they will hear, [ ] Light after light well us'd they shall attain, And to the end persisting, safe arrive. This my long sufferance and my day of grace They who neglect and scorn, shall never taste; But hard be hard'nd , blind be blinded more, [ ] That they may stumble on, and deeper fall; And none but such from mercy I exclude.
But yet all is not don ; Man disobeying, Disloyal breaks his fealtie , and sinns Against the high Supremacie of Heav'n , [ ] Affecting God-head, and so loosing all, To expiate his Treason hath naught left, But to destruction sacred and devote, He with his whole posteritie must dye , Dye hee or Justice must; unless for him [ ] Som other able, and as willing, pay The rigid satisfaction, death for death. Say Heav'nly Powers, where shall we find such love , Which of ye will be mortal to redeem Mans mortal crime, and just th' unjust to save, [ ] Dwels in all Heaven charitie so deare?
He ask'd , but all the Heav'nly Quire stood mute , And silence was in Heav'n : on mans behalf Patron or Intercessor none appeerd , Much less that durst upon his own head draw [ ] The deadly forfeiture, and ransom set.
And now without redemption all mankind Must have bin lost, adjudg'd to Death and Hell By doom severe, had not the Son of God, In whom the fulness dwells of love divine, [ ] His dearest mediation thus renewd. Thou at the sight Pleas'd , out of Heaven shalt look down and smile, While by thee rais'd I ruin all my Foes, Death last , and with his Carcass glut the Grave: Then with the multitude of my redeemd [ ] Shall enter Heaven long absent, and returne , Father, to see thy face, wherein no cloud Of anger shall remain, but peace assur'd , And reconcilement; wrauth shall be no more Thenceforth, but in thy presence Joy entire.
His words here ended, but his meek aspect Silent yet spake, and breath'd immortal love To mortal men, above which only shon Filial obedience: as a sacrifice Glad to be offer'd , he attends the will [ ] Of his great Father.
Admiration seis'd All Heav'n , what this might mean, and whither tend Wondring ; but soon th' Almighty thus reply'd :. O thou in Heav'n and Earth the only peace Found out for mankind under wrauth , O thou [ ] My sole complacence! As in him perish all men, so in thee As from a second root shall be restor'd , As many as are restor'd , without thee none. His crime makes guiltie all his Sons, thy merit [ ] Imputed shall absolve them who renounce Thir own both righteous and unrighteous deeds, And live in thee transplanted, and from thee Receive new life.
So Man, as is most just, Shall satisfie for Man, be judg'd and die, [ ] And dying rise, and rising with him raise His Brethren, ransomd with his own dear life. So Heav'nly love shall outdoo Hellish hate, Giving to death, and dying to redeeme , So dearly to redeem what Hellish hate [ ] So easily destroy'd , and still destroyes In those who, when they may, accept not grace. Nor shalt thou by descending to assume Mans Nature, less'n or degrade thine owne.
Then all thy Saints assembl'd , thou shalt judge [ ] Bad men and Angels, they arraignd shall sink Beneath thy Sentence; Hell her numbers full, Thenceforth shall be for ever shut. Mean while The World shall burn, and from her ashes spring New Heav'n and Earth, wherein the just shall dwell [ ] And after all thir tribulations long See golden days, fruitful of golden deeds, With Joy and Love triumphing, and fair Truth. But all ye Gods , Adore him, who to compass all this dies, Adore the Son, and honour him as mee. No sooner had th' Almighty ceas't , but all The multitude of Angels with a shout [ ] Loud as from numbers without number, sweet As from blest voices, uttering joy, Heav'n rung With Jubilee, and loud Hosanna's filld Th' eternal Regions: lowly reverent Towards either Throne they bow, and to the ground [ ] With solemn adoration down they cast Thir Crowns inwove with Amarant and Gold, Immortal Amarant , a Flour which once In Paradise, fast by the Tree of Life Began to bloom, but soon for mans offence [ ] To Heav'n remov'd where first it grew, there grows, And flours aloft shading the Fount of Life, And where the river of Bliss through midst of Heavn Rowls o're Elisian Flours her Amber stream; With these that never fade the Spirits elect [ ] Bind thir resplendent locks inwreath'd with beams, Now in loose Garlands thick thrown off, the bright Pavement that like a Sea of Jasper shon Impurpl'd with Celestial Roses smil'd.
Thee Father first they sung Omnipotent, Immutable, Immortal, Infinite, Eternal King; thee Author of all being, Fountain of Light, thy self invisible [ ] Amidst the glorious brightness where thou sit'st Thron'd inaccessible, but when thou shad'st The full blaze of thy beams, and through a cloud Drawn round about thee like a radiant Shrine, Dark with excessive bright thy skirts appeer , [ ] Yet dazle Heav'n , that brightest Seraphim Approach not, but with both wings veil thir eyes, Thee next they sang of all Creation first, Begotten Son, Divine Similitude, In whose conspicuous count'nance , without cloud [ ] Made visible, th' Almighty Father shines, Whom else no Creature can behold; on thee Impresst the effulgence of his Glorie abides, Transfus'd on thee his ample Spirit rests.
Hee Heav'n of Heavens and all the Powers therein [ ] By thee created, and by thee threw down Th' Aspiring Dominations: thou that day Thy Fathers dreadful Thunder didst not spare, Nor stop thy flaming Chariot wheels, that shook Heav'ns everlasting Frame, while o're the necks [ ] Thou drov'st of warring Angels disarraid.
Back from pursuit thy Powers with loud acclaime Thee only extoll'd , Son of thy Fathers might, To execute fierce vengeance on his foes, Not so on Man; him through their malice fall'n , [ ] Father of Mercie and Grace, thou didst not doome So strictly, but much more to pitie encline : No sooner did thy dear and onely Son Perceive thee purpos'd not to doom frail Man So strictly, but much more to pitie enclin'd , [ ] He to appease thy wrauth , and end the strife Of Mercy and Justice in thy face discern'd , Regardless of the Bliss wherein hee sat Second to thee, offerd himself to die For mans offence.
O unexampl'd love , [ ] Love no where to be found less then Divine! Thus they in Heav'n , above the starry Sphear , Thir happie hours in joy and hymning spent. Mean while upon the firm opacous Globe Of this round World, whose first convex divides The luminous inferior Orbs , enclos'd [ ] From Chaos and th' inroad of Darkness old, Satan alighted walks: a Globe farr off It seem'd , now seems a boundless Continent Dark, waste, and wild, under the frown of Night Starless expos'd , and ever- threatning storms [ ] Of Chaos blustring round, inclement skie ; Save on that side which from the wall of Heav'n Though distant farr some small reflection gaines Of glimmering air less vext with tempest loud: Here walk'd the Fiend at large in spacious field.
The Stairs were such as whereon Jacob saw [ ] Angels ascending and descending, bands Of Guardians bright, when he from Esau fled To Padan - Aram in the field of Luz, Dreaming by night under the open Skie , And waking cri'd , This is the Gate of Heav'n [ ] Each Stair mysteriously was meant , nor stood There alwayes , but drawn up to Heav'n somtimes Viewless, and underneath a bright Sea flow'd Of Jasper, or of liquid Pearle , whereon Who after came from Earth , sayling arriv'd , [ ] Wafted by Angels, or flew o're the Lake Rapt in a Chariot drawn by fiery Steeds.
The Stairs were then let down, whether to dare The Fiend by easie ascent, or aggravate His sad exclusion from the dores of Bliss. Satan from hence now on the lower stair [ ] That scal'd by steps of Gold to Heav'n Gate Looks down with wonder at the sudden view Of all this World at once.
