न च मत्स्थानि भूतानि पश्य मे योगमैश्वरम्।
भूतभृन्न च भूतस्थो ममात्मा भूतभावनः।।9.5।।
।।9.5।।यब सब संसार मेरे अव्यक्त स्वरूपसे व्याप्त है। सम्पूर्ण प्राणी मेरेमें स्थित हैं परन्तु मैं उनमें स्थित नहीं हूँ तथा वे प्राणी भी मेरेमें स्थित नहीं हैं -- मेरे इस ईश्वरसम्बन्धी योग(सामर्थ्य)को देख सम्पूर्ण प्राणियोंको उत्पन्न करनेवाला और उनका धारण? भरणपोषण करनेवाला मेरा स्वरूप उन प्राणियोंमें स्थित नहीं है।
Lord Krishna states unequivocally na bhuta-stah meaning that He does not derives any support whatsoever from the myriads of unlimited created sentient and insentient beings. He is supremely independent and He specifically states that He is not upheld by them in any manner like that of a vessel upholding water. It is by His will alone that He supports and energises all existence. Just marvel on the wonder of His yoga aisvaram or divine supernatural power which is so fantastic and phenomenal and which there is no comparison in any form any where else in the past, present or future. What is this divine, supernatural power which is so mysterious that it controls, organises and directs all of creation with natural perfection. The word mamatma means by His own soul being for Him paramatma the Supreme Soul residing in all beings and this opulent of abundance constitutes the power of His will which alone is the cause of all existence. So He is bhuta- bhrt or the support of all existence and bhuta-bhavanah the protector of existence or that by which an order of existence is established. In the next verse an example will be given to emphasise how all things depend upon Lord Krishnas will for their existence.
