Bhagavad Gita Chapter 11 Verse 8

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 11 श्लोक 8

न तु मां शक्यसे द्रष्टुमनेनैव स्वचक्षुषा।
दिव्यं ददामि ते चक्षुः पश्य मे योगमैश्वरम्।।11.8।।

हिंदी अनुवाद - स्वामी तेजोमयानंद

।।11.8।। परन्तु तुम अपने इन्हीं (प्राकृत) नेत्रों के द्वारा मुझे देखने में समर्थ नहीं हो (इसलिए) मैं तुम्हें दिव्यचक्षु देता हूँ? जिससे तुम मेरे ईश्वरीय योग को देखो।।

Kumara Vaishnava Sampradaya - Commentary

Lord Krishna is exclaiming to behold His cosmic glory as all existence is contained within a small space of His visvarupa or divine universal form. But He instructs Arjuna that with his physical eyes which are limited and only conditioned to see mundane material objects, he will not be able to have its transcendental vision which is fantastic, phenomenal and beyond measure and comparison. Because of this limitation Lord Krishna confers upon him divyam or spiritual vision making his eyes capable of seeing the universal form. Lord Krishna states pasya me yogam aisvaram or behold His almighty, transcendental mystic opulence. The word aisvaram means unparalleled, extraordinary opulence. The word yogam denotes the assemblage and conglomeration of all divine qualities and attributes such as omniscience, omnipotence, omnipresence, etc. It also denotes the refuge and embodiment of all displayed and as yet to be displayed magnificent opulence.
