God Is Infinite And Manifested In The Universe In Countless Forms Despite The Fact That He Governs The Cosmos, He Remains The Non-Doer

श्रीभगवानुवाच |

हन्त ते कथयिष्यामि दिव्या ह्यात्मविभूतय: |
प्राधान्यत: कुरुश्रेष्ठ नास्त्यन्तो विस्तरस्य मे ||10.19||

śhrī bhagavān uvācha

hanta te kathayiṣhyāmi divyā hyātma-vibhūtayaḥ
prādhānyataḥ kuru-śhreṣhṭha nāstyanto vistarasya me||10.19||

Shloka Translation
BG – Ch. 10- Ver. 19:

The Lord said, “I will now briefly convey My glorious splendour to you, O finest of the Kurus,” for they are endless.


God’s wealth and might are limitless. In fact, he is limitless in every way. He has an infinite number of forms, titles, abodes, descensions, pastimes, devotees, and so on. As a result, the Vedas refer to him as anant.

God is limitless, and the pleasures he performs in his limitless Avataras are limitless as well. Those who believe they can count God’s splendour have a childish mind. We may be able to count the particles of dust on the pinnacle of the world, but we will never be able to tally God’s infinite splendour.” As a result, Shree Krishna declares that he will only describe a small portion of his vibhtis here.

Verse & what we can learn

Shri Krishna was overjoyed and anxious to speak about Ishvara’s splendours, therefore the implication here is one of delight. Because Ishvara’s grandeur and manifestations are boundless, it would be impossible to mention them all. He would, however, be able to name the most important ones.

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.

If a list of Ishvara’s expressions is required, it cannot be brief and concise. It should be detailed. In the next shloka, Arjuna asks for this.
