कस्माच्च ते न नमेरन्महात्मन्
अनन्त देवेश जगन्निवास
त्वमक्षरं सदसत्तत्परं यत्।।11.37।।
।।11.37।। हे महात्मन् ब्रह्मा के भी आदि कर्ता और सबसे श्रेष्ठ आपके लिए वे कैसे नमस्कार नहीं करें (क्योंकि) हे अनन्त हे देवेश हे जगन्निवास जो सत् असत् और इन दोनों से परे अक्षरतत्त्व है? वह आप ही हैं।।
Here it is explained why it is appropriate to propitiate the Supreme Lord Krishna. As He is purna or complete He is known as the source of all atmas or souls. Here He is addressed as mahatma the greatest personality. The word atma has been explained in Mahabharta in this manner: The Supreme Lord is pervading everywhere in everything, because He is the controller of all, the dispenser of the results of all actions, abiding in each and every body and the first recipient of all sense enjoyments and because He is eternal He is known as atma the soul of all. The Bhagavat Purana states that the material worlds are a combination of sat or effect and asat or cause but the Supreme Lord is superior to both sat and asat.
