स्थाने हृषीकेश तव प्रकीर्त्या
जगत् प्रहृष्यत्यनुरज्यते च।
रक्षांसि भीतानि दिशो द्रवन्ति
सर्वे नमस्यन्ति च सिद्धसङ्घाः।।11.36।।
।।11.36।।अर्जुन बोले -- हे अन्तर्यामी भगवन् आपके नाम? गुण? लीलाका कीर्तन करनेसे यह सम्पूर्ण जगत् हर्षित हो रहा है और अनुराग(प्रेम) को प्राप्त हो रहा है। आपके नाम? गुण आदिके कीर्तनसे भयभीत होकर राक्षसलोग दसों दिशाओंमें भागते हुए जा रहे हैं और सम्पूर्ण सिद्धगण आपको नमस्कार कर रहे हैं। यह सब होना उचित ही है।
11.36 Sthane, it is proper; -what is that?-that the jagat, world; prahrsyati, becomes delighted; tava prakirtya, by Your praise, by reciting Your greatness and hearing it. This is befitting. This is the idea. Or, the word sthane may be taken as alifying the word subject (understood) : It is proper that the Lord is the subject of joy etc. since the Lord is the Self of all beings and the Friend of all. So also it (the world) anurajyate, becomes attracted, becomes drawn (by that praise). That also is with regard to a proper subject. This is how it is to be explained. Further, that the raksamsi, Raksasas; bhitani, stricken with fear; dravanti, run; disah, in all directions-that also is with regard to a proper subject. And that sarve, all; the siddha-sanghah, groups of the Siddhas-Kapila and others; namasyanti, bow down-that also is befitting. He points out the reason for the Lords being the object of delight etc.:
11.36 Sthane etc. By high glory : by highly singing the glory.
11.36 Arjuna said: Sthane means rightly or it is but proper. It is but proper that the whole world of gods, Gandharvas, Siddhas, Yaksas, Kinnaras, Kimpurusas, etc., who have foregathered with a desire to see the battle, should be delighted with You and love You after beholding You by Your grace. You are the Lord of all. Rightly after beholding You, the Raksasas flee in fear on all sides, and rightly all the host of Siddhas, namely, the host of Siddhas who are favourable to You, pay their homage to You. The connection with what was said earlier is that all this is as it ought to be. He further proceeds to explain how all this is right:
Arjuna Uvaacha: Sthaane hrisheekesha tava prakeertyaaJagat prahrishyatyanurajyate cha; Rakshaamsi bheetaani disho dravantiSarve namasyanti cha siddhasanghaah.
