मया ततमिदं सर्वं जगदव्यक्तमूर्तिना।
मत्स्थानि सर्वभूतानि न चाहं तेष्ववस्थितः।।9.4।।
।।9.4।। यह सम्पूर्ण जगत् मुझ (परमात्मा) के अव्यक्त स्वरूप से व्याप्त है भूतमात्र मुझमें स्थित है? परन्तु मैं उनमें स्थित नहीं हूं।।
The complete cosmic creation constituted of variegated myriad of sentient and insentient beings is permeated by the Supreme Lord Krishna. The words avyakta-murttina mean His subtle form manifested as the brahman or spiritual substratum pervading all existence. It is indiscernible by the material senses and is unable to be perceived by the mind. Although secretly hidden, He is manifested internally in the unrivalled presence of paramatma the purely spiritual supreme soul in everything sentient and insentient. So in spirit He pervades everywhere. Lord Krishna does this in relation to universal creation as the Supreme Sovereign Lord manifesting it and also by maintaining and sustaining it. As stated in the Brihadaranyaka Upanisad V.VII.III beginning ya prithivyam tishtham or He who abides in earth but whom earth knows not and He to whom in the interior of earth is sovereign ruler and in verse V.VII.XXII beginning ya atmani tishtham meaning He who resides in the soul but the soul knows not and He to whom the soul is the body who from the interior of the soul is sovereign ruler. Both verses confirm His supreme presence and pervasive nature in everything which is sentient as well as insentient; but totally unperceived. By reference to earth, body, soul establishes complete compliance to His sovereign rulership and establishes the dependence of all things upon Him as they derive their very existence from Him. Hence all existences and everything existing in all existences have their abode within the Supreme Lord.
