Bhagavad Gita Chapter 7 Verse 7

भगवद् गीता अध्याय 7 श्लोक 7

मत्तः परतरं नान्यत्किञ्चिदस्ति धनञ्जय।
मयि सर्वमिदं प्रोतं सूत्रे मणिगणा इव।।7.7।।

English Translation - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

7.7. There exists nothing beyond Me, O Dhananjaya; all this is strung on Me just as the groups of pearls on a string.

English Translation of Commentary - Dr. S. Sankaranarayan

7.6-7 Etadyonini etc. Mattah etc. Keep them nearby : You should place them in your neihbourhood following the method of experience augmented by practice. Or [it may mean that] You should bear in mind that I, the Vasudeva, am both the origin and destruction of all beings. What is indicated by I is this : Even though [it is viewed that] the Absolute (Isvara) is distinct from the Prakrti, Soul and Supreme Soul, It remains by all means immanent in all; hence there is no room for the theory of dualism of the Sankhya and the Yoga schools. Just as the pearls on the string. Just as the string does exist unobserved in the interior [in a necklace] though its form remains undetected, in the same fashion I remain in all.
