Shloka Translation
BG – Ch. 10- Ver. 37:

I am Vaasudeva among the Vrishnis, and Dhananjaya among the Paandavas. Also, I am Vyaasa among the sages and Ushanaa the seer among the seers.


As the son of Vasudev, Lord Krishna was born on the earth during the Vrishni kingdom. He is the most glorious personality of the Vrishni dynasty since no soul can surpass the Lord. Yudhishthir, Bheem, Arjuna, Nakula, and Sahadeva were the Pandavas’ five sons. Arjuna was one of them, and he was a master archer as well as a devoted follower of Shree Krishna. He regarded the Lord as a close friend.

Among the sages, Veda Vyasa is unique. He disseminated Vedic knowledge in a variety of methods and authored numerous scriptures for the benefit of the people. Veda Vyasa was an Avatara of Shree Krishna himself.

Shukracharya was a wise man who was well-known for his knowledge of ethics. He was kind enough to welcome and guide the demons as his followers. He has been declared a vibhuti of God as a result of his knowledge.

Verse & what we can learn

Shri Krishna is known by several names, one of which is Vaarshaneya, which means “born in the clan of Vrishni.” King Yadu is claimed to have founded the principal branch of the Chandravanshis, the lunar dynasty, and the Vrishnis are said to be his descendants. Shri Krishna, the most powerful of the Vrishni clan, declares himself to be Ishvara’s manifestation.

The Bhagavad Gita would not exist if Arjuna had not posed the questions and Sage Vyaasa had not written the Mahaabhaarata epic. Shri Krishna declares both of them to be divine manifestations of Ishvara in this regard. In addition, Arjuna and Vyaasa were both well-known in their own right.

Arjuna was the Mahaabhaarata war’s lone unbeaten warrior and the greatest archer of his day. Vyaasa is credited with dividing the Vedas into four branches, as well as composing the major Puranas and the Brahma Sutra.
Shukraachaarya, is regarded as one of India’s most important gurus or instructors. Lord Shiva, taught him Sanjeevani vidya, how to revive the dead. He later became the demons’ guru, but he never adopted any of their characteristics. Shukraachaarya is declared to be Ishvara’s expression by Shri Krishna.
