Bhagavad Gita Chapter 11 Verse 47

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 11 श्लोक 47

श्री भगवानुवाच
मया प्रसन्नेन तवार्जुनेदं
रूपं परं दर्शितमात्मयोगात्।
तेजोमयं विश्वमनन्तमाद्यं
यन्मे त्वदन्येन न दृष्टपूर्वम्।।11.47।।

English Translation - Swami Gambirananda

11.47 The Blessed Lord said Out of grace, O Arjuna, this supreme, radiant, Cosmic, infinite, primeval form-which (form) of Mine has not been seen before by anyone other than you, has been shown to you by Me through the power of My own Yoga.

English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

11.47 The Lord said The luminous form of Mine is a mass of luminosity. It is universal i.e., constitutes the Self of the universe. It is infinite, endless. This is illustrated by describing it as having no beginning, middle or end. It is primeval, namely, it constitutes the foundation of all beings other than Myself. It has nevr been seen before by any one other than you. Such a form is now revealed to you, who are My devotee, by Me who am gracious, by My own Yoga, namely, by the power of willing the truth associated with Me. Sri Krsna proceeds to say, It is not possible that I can be realised as I am, through any means except exclusive Bhakti.
