अहं सर्वस्य प्रभवो मत्तः सर्वं प्रवर्तते।
इति मत्वा भजन्ते मां बुधा भावसमन्विताः।।10.8।।
।।10.8।।मैं संसारमात्रका प्रभव (मूलकारण) हूँ? और मेरेसे ही सारा संसार प्रवृत्त हो रहा है अर्थात् चेष्टा कर रहा है -- ऐसा मेरेको मानकर मेरेमें ही श्रद्धाप्रेम रखते हुए बुद्धिमान् भक्त मेरा ही भजन करते हैं -- सब प्रकारसे मेरे ही शरण होते हैं।
This confirms that Lord Krishna is the generating cause and origin of the all the wonderfully, marvellous and fascinatingly phenomenal displays of activity found abounding in all creation comprised of intelligent and non- intelligent beings and objects. He alone energises all of creation and manifests the impulses required for all actions. The spiritually intelligent are the mahatmanas or great illuminated beings who matva or realise His Supreme Absolute position as the ultimate controller of all existence. Who possesses all illustrious attributes such as compassion, affection, reciprocity, friendship, etc. These great beings are bhava- samanvitah or endowed with a wonderful way of serving Lord Krishna in bhakti or exclusive loving devotion according to their internal mood. The spiritually intelligent cultivate their minds in such a way as to acquire this mood and deeply immerse themselves in it. How this is accomplished Lord Krishna reveals next.
