मया प्रसन्नेन तवार्जुनेदं
रूपं परं दर्शितमात्मयोगात्।
यन्मे त्वदन्येन न दृष्टपूर्वम्।।11.47।।
।।11.47।।श्रीभगवान् बोले -- हे अर्जुन मैंने प्रसन्न होकर अपनी सामर्थ्यसे यह अत्यन्त श्रेष्ठ? तेजोमय? सबका आदि और अनन्त विश्वरूप तुझे दिखाया है? जिसको तुम्हारे सिवाय पहले किसीने नहीं देखा है।
Lord Krishna magnanimously expressed because He was prasannena tavarjunadam meaning very pleased by Arjuna and thus exhibited His visvarupa or divine universal form. The word tejo-mayam means resplendent and glorious, visvam means all pervasive, anantam means infinite without beginning, middle or end. The word adyam means first, the original, He who was before and prior to all else and the words atma-yogat means by His own infallible free will which manifests as His sakti or internal energy known as Yogamaya. Arjuna was the Supreme Lords devotee who by His grace bequeathed upon him the vision to see the visvarupa which had never been revealed on Earth before. Next will be explained that except by bhakti or exclusive loving devotion it is not possible by any means whatsoever to realise the Supreme Lord Krishna and attain communion with Him.
