One Who Knows The Divine As The Master Of The Universe Is The Wise One

यो मामजमनादिं च वेत्ति लोकमहेश्वरम् |
असम्मूढ: स मर्त्येषु सर्वपापै: प्रमुच्यते || 10.3||

yo māmajam anādiṁ cha vetti loka-maheśhvaram
asammūḍhaḥ sa martyeṣhu sarva-pāpaiḥ pramuchyate|| 10.3||

Shloka Translation
BG – Ch. 10- Ver. 3:

He is wise among all humans and free of all faults who knows me as birthless, causeless, and master of the universe.


Shri Krishna implies that no one can know God through their own efforts, but if God bestows his grace on someone, that fortunate individual gets to know him. As a result, all who come to know God do so via his divine grace. Shree Krishna declares in this verse that those who recognise him as the Supreme Lord of All Lords are not deceived. Such privileged beings become free of all emotions to their previous and current deeds, and develop genuine devotion to him.

Shree Krishna says that he is loka mahehwaram in order to distinguish himself from the souls. The Supreme Lord is the God of all gods and the Controller of all controllers. He is the Beloved of All Beloveds, the Ruler of the World, and the Source of All Energy.

Verse & what we can learn

Shri Krishna claims that one whose devotion to Ishvara has reached its summit, one who recognizes Ishvara as the eternal lord of the universe, has this capacity for discrimination and wisdom spontaneously. He is also cleansed of all his misdeeds. The eventual effect of devotion is this.

The Gita places a specific focus on viveka, or discriminating, as a trait. It’s the ability to tell the difference between what’s real and what’s not. This comes naturally to certain people, but not to the majority of us. Devotion is the answer. As we learn more of Ishvara’s glory, our perception and comprehension of his genuine nature expands. We begin to understand that, whereas everything else in the world has a beginning and an end, Ishvara is eternal. We begin to see that he is not bound to a specific space or location, but rather that he is everywhere.

So, once we realise that Ishvara is present everywhere and at all times, beyond the realms of time and space, we comprehend that all else is secondary. We also comprehend that Ishvara is in charge of the universe after hearing these marvels. When we identify with Ishvara, the universe’s controller, our ego, sense of doership, and enjoyership all vanish because we understand that we are doing nothing and that it is all Ishvara’s doing. All of our crimes are erased in an instant when the sinner, which is nothing more than the sense of doership and enjoyership, is dropped.

To acquire knowledge and to implement that knowledge in life one needs to be mentally and physically active and healthy and for that daily meditation is a great tool.

There are various types of meditation like Buddhist meditation, heartfulness meditation, mindfulness meditation, meditation for stress, and each meditation benefits are countless. There are also numerous meditation techniques for beginners which help in practicing daily meditation so go ahead and start your journey towards a peaceful and balanced life.

Shri Krishna initially analyses Ishvara’s inner, subtle expressions in the following shlokas. Later on, he discusses his more evident exterior expressions.
