Bhagavad Gita Chapter 13 Verse 34

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 13 श्लोक 34

यथा प्रकाशयत्येकः कृत्स्नं लोकमिमं रविः।
क्षेत्रं क्षेत्री तथा कृत्स्नं प्रकाशयति भारत।।13.34।।

English Translation - Swami Gambirananda

13.34 As the single sun illumines this whole world, similarly, O descendant of the Bharata dynasty, the Knower of the field illumines the whole field.

English Translation of Ramanuja's Sanskrit Commentary

13.34 As the one sun illumines all this world by his radiance, so the knower of the body illumines the entire Ksetra, i.e., the body, by Its own knowledge, within and without and from head to toe, by conceiving This my body is of this nature. This self of the said nature is totally different from the body, because It is the knower of the body. The body is the object of Its knowledge and is therefore different from It, even as the illuminating sun is totally different from the illumined world.
