Shloka Translation
BG – Ch. 10- Ver. 12 & 13:

You are the Supreme Divine Personality, the Supreme Abode, the Supreme Purifier, the Eternal God, the Primal Being, the Unborn, and the Greatest; you are the Supreme Divine Personality, the Supreme Abode, the Supreme Purifier, the Eternal God, the Primal Being, the Unborn, and the Greatest. This has been declared by great sages such as Narada, Asit, Deval, and Vyasa, proclaimed this, and now You are declaring it to me Yourself.


After hearing the previous four verses, Arjun is completely convinced of Shree Krishna’s supremacy and expresses his deep conviction strongly. The legitimacy of information is established when renowned authority testify to it. Spiritual knowledge is dispensed by the great saints.

As a result, Arjun cites saints like Narada, Asit, Deval, and Vyasa, who have declared Shree Krishna to be the Supreme Divine Personality and the cause of all causes. Arjuna quotes these renowned sources and claims that Shree Krishna is now reaffirming their claims by declaring himself to be the supreme cause of all creation.

Verse & what we can learn

Ishvara’s true nature exists outside of time and space, and it is that which sustains time and space. All beings’ ultimate dwelling, the supreme objective. Ishvara is also the supreme purifier, as he eliminates all remnants of impurities, such as ignorance. Ishvara is divine because he is beyond the realm of impermanence produced by Maya. He is the divine immortal being who encompasses the entire universe. He is not only beyond birth, but he is also the cause of everyone else’s. He is “vibhum,” which means “all-pervading,” and he looks to be everything by himself.

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 is 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.

In the next Shloka Shri Arjuna continues to talk to Shri Krishna and about his real personality and how no one really knows him.
