English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

11.13 There, in that unie and divine body of the God of gods - infinite in length and breadth, with innumerable hands, stomachs, faces and eyes, of immeasurable splendour, eipped with innumerable divine weapons, adorned with innumerable divine ornaments appropriate to itself and with divine garlands and raiments, fragrant with celestial perfumes and full of wonders , there Arjuna beheld with the appropriate divine eyes granted by the grace of the Lord, the entire universe consisting of Prakrti (material Nature) and the selves, all remaining in one single spot, namely, at one single point. He beheld the whole universe with all its sub-divisions, differentiated into varied and wonderful classes of experiencing beings like Brahma, gods, animals, men, immovables etc., and the places, objects and means of experiences such as earth, ether, Rasatala, Atala, Vitala, Sutala etc. He beheld thus the entire universe as depicted in such texts as those starting with I am the origin of all; from Me proceed everything (10.8), Indeed I shall tell you, O Arjuna, My glorious self-manifestations (10.9), I am the Self, O Arjuna, dwelling in the hearts of all beings (10.20), and Of Adityas, I am Visnu (10.21), and ending with Nothing that moves or does not move exists without Me (10.39), and I remain, with a single fraction of Myself sustaining this whole universe (10.42).
