English Translation - Swami Gambirananda

11.11 Wearing heavenly garlands and apparel, anointed with heavenly scents, abounding in all kinds of wonder, resplendent, infinite, and with faces everywhere.

English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

11.10 - 11.11 Divyam means resplendent. Anantam (boundless) means that form is not limited by time and space because of its being the foundation of the entire universe in the past, present and future. Visvatomukham means facing in all directions. This form is adorned with divine raiments, perfumes, garlands, ornaments and weapons appropriate to it. He explains the same resplendence expressed by the term Divyam:
