Kumara Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishnas visvarupa or divine universal form is infinite being devoid of beginning, middle or end. The word ananta means unlimited and viryam means powerful so the visvarupa is unlimitedly powerful without any restrictions. Other qualities are also implied by ananta such as cognizance, dominion, might, strength, etc. The words ananta-bahum meaning unlimited arms also infers unlimited hands, chests, legs, feet, etc as well. Sasi-surya-netram means eyes like the sun and moon. The moons rays denote the cool gentle beaming look that gladdens as it shines upon the Supreme Lords servitors the demigods and His votaries the devotees with compasssion. The suns glowing rays denotes the hot, burning eye that scorches the inimical hosts of asuras or demons and raksasas or devils who are devoid of righteousness to others. Dipta-hutasa-vaktram meaning with fire emitting from their mouths denotes the fire of universal destruction contained within the bosom of time raged therein. Sva-tejasi means dazzling splendour and unprecedented radiance which illuminated everything around it. This glorious life giving energy flows unrestrictedly throughout all the universes. Arjuna is explaining that he has seen the reality of the visvarupa according to the manner in which Lord Krishna deigned to teach him by exhibiting the visvarupa in before him and practically demonstrating that He is the complete creator, the complete sustainer, the total refuge of all and the absloute destroyer as well as being the receptacle for all divine qualities and transcendental attributes such as omniscience, omnipotence and omni-presence. The question may arise as to how is it possible for unlimited bodily parts to be functioning all in one body. The answer to this would be that one can imagine a single bodily midsection of vast proportions with unlimited chests, arms, hands necks and heads branching upwards from it in every direction and with every head having two eyes, two ears, a nose and a mouth. Also branching downwards in every direction it is possible to imagine unlimited legs and feet as well. So this conception is clearly not an impossibility and seeing it along with choice demigods and exalted liberated beings they were all inspired with awe and reverence.
