भगवद् गीता अध्याय 11 श्लोक 18

त्वमक्षरं परमं वेदितव्यं
त्वमस्य विश्वस्य परं निधानम्।
त्वमव्ययः शाश्वतधर्मगोप्ता
सनातनस्त्वं पुरुषो मतो मे।।11.18।।

।।11.18।।आप ही जाननेयोग्य परम अक्षर (अक्षरब्रह्म) हैं? आप ही इस सम्पूर्ण विश्वके परम आश्रय हैं? आप ही सनातनधर्मके रक्षक हैं और आप ही अविनाशी सनातन पुरुष हैं -- ऐसा मैं मानता हूँ।

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Since the Supreme Lord Krishnas almighty power is beyond the material conception it is correctly stated in Vedic scriptures that He the Ultimate destination and what is to be known for seekers of moksa or liberation from material existence. He alone is imperishable, the Supreme salvation for all living entities, the Supreme refuge without a second for all creation. Therefore Lord Krishna is eternal, immutable, the preserver, the protector and the sustainer of sanatan dharma or the eternal spiritual principles of righteousness for all times and He is absolutely without a doubt the original Supreme Lord of all lords and created beings.

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

The Vedic scriptures known as the Upanisads declare also that Lord Krishna is aksaram paramam the Supreme immutable ultimate reality and declared in the Vedic scriptures as that which is essential to be known. The word veditavyam means He is only to be know by the absolute authority of the Vedas. The word avyayah means that which is imperishable and can never be diminished for in whatever aspect or form or manifestation Lord Krishna wills to be that will eternally be existing. The phrase sasvata-dharma- gopta means the Supreme Lord Krishna is the eternal preserver of eternal righteousness embodied in the Vedic scriptures. This is done by Himself and by His authorised avatars o incarnations and expansions as revealed in Vedic scriptures such as Narayana, Rama, Vishnu, Narasimhadeva, Buddha etc. The words sanatanas tvam puruso means Lord Krishna is the eternal spirit and primal consciousness of all creation as affirmed in the Taittriya Upanisad III.XII beginning vedaham etam purusam meaning I perceive the magnificent Purusa. Also in the Mundaka Upanisad I.I.IV beginning dve vidye veditavye meaning: The Purusa is more sublime than the most sublime. All this is as the ornament of the complete cosmic creation Lord Krishna exhibited His visvarupa or divine universal form and is understood as such.
