11.7 Sri Abhinavagupta did not comment upon this sloka.

English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

11.7 Here, in this one body of Mine, and even there, gathered together in a single spot, behold the universe with all mobile and immobile entities. Whatever else you desire to see (i.e., Arjunas chances of victory), behold that also in one part of this single body.

Commentary - Chakravarthi Ji

On this occasion (iha), this universe, which is impossible for you to see completely even if you wander within it for millions of years, is situated in just one part of my body (ekastham). See that universe and whatever else you desire to see, such as your victory or defeat (yac ca anyat) in my body, which is the shelter of the universe, being its cause.

Rudra Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna is stating pasya behold now in His visvarupa or divine universal form, this very moment the entire creation with all its movable and immovable components all integrated together and united as different parts of a singular form in His transcendental universal form. This phenomenal form is impossible of being seen by demigods, humans and demons even in tens of millions of years wandering unobstructed throughout all creation. Everything that exists can be seen in this universal form as well as anything else that may be seen such as past and future along with different conditions in creation including victory and defeat. Also prakriti the material substratum as well as the brahman the spiritual substratum pervading all existence.

Brahma Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Shri Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Now Lord Krishna reveals that the whole creation consisting of unlimited moving and stationary things are all contained in ihaikastham meaning in only one part of His visvarupa or divine universal form and anything else that could be desired to be seen is in this location as well. This denotes that there are many other marvels and wonders in other parts that are undisclosed.
