Shloka Translation
BG – Ch. 10- Ver. 25:

Among the great seers, I am Bhrigu, and among the sounds, I am the transcendental Om. Know Me to be the repeating of the Holy Name among chants, and the Himalayas among immovable objects.


Everything in the universe is God’s glory, both manifest and unmanifest, but the most notable among them are singled out for notice as his richness. Bhrigu stands out among the sages of the cosmic planes of existence. Wisdom, splendour, and devotion are all attributes he possesses.

Worshippers of God in his formless aspect enjoy meditating on the vibration “Om,” which is another of God’s vibhtis. It is stated that the Gayatri mantra was revealed from the monosyllabic “Om,” and that the Vedas were disclosed from the Gayatri mantra. The Himalayas are a mountain range in India’s northwestern corner.

They have generated spiritual amazement and wonder in billions of believers for millennia. Their setting, seclusion, and atmosphere are suitable to the practise of austerities for spiritual advancement. As a result, many great sages live in their subtle bodies in the Himalayas, practicing penance for their own growth and the sake of humanity.

The act of committing ourselves to the Supreme is known as yajna. The chanting of God’s holy names is the most basic of all yajna. This is known as japa yajna, or the devotional repetition of God’s divine names as a sacrifice. A number of rules apply to the performance of ritualistic yajnas, all of which must be properly fulfilled. There are no regulations in japa yajna, however. It is more purifying than other types of yajnas and can be performed anywhere and at any time. The chanting of God’s names has become even more important in this age of Kali.

Verse & what we can learn

Ishvara’s incarnation, according to Shri Krishna, is the great sage Bhrigu, the greatest among the great sages. Shri Krishna then claims that the word Om, which is made up of only one letter, is the most important of all the utterances or uttered words. Shri Krishna claims that singing a mantra, also known as japa, is the most important practise.
