Whatever We See As Beautiful, Glorious, Or Powerful, It Is But A Spark Of Divine Splendour

यद्यद्विभूतिमत्सत्त्वं श्रीमदूर्जितमेव वा |
तत्देवावगच्छ त्वं मम तेजोंऽशसम्भवम् || 10.41||

yad yad vibhūtimat sattvaṁ śhrīmad ūrjitam eva vā
tat tad evāvagachchha tvaṁ mama tejo ’nśha-sambhavam|| 10.41||

Shloka Translation
BG – Ch. 10- Ver. 41:

You should comprehend that whatever entity has grandeur, prosperity, and vigour was born from a fraction of my strength.


When we see amazing grandeur anyplace, whatever captures our imagination, drives us into ecstasies, and fills us with joy, we should recognize it as a fragment of God’s brilliance. He is an endless source of beauty, majesty, power, wisdom, and luxury. He is the center of strength from which all creatures and things derive their beauty. As a result, we must make God the object of our adoration, as he is the source of all glory.

Verse & what we can learn

Ishvara’s expression is everything that appeals to our mind and senses, any object or person gifted with grandeur, perfection, knowledge, and power, anything that inspires awe and astonishment. As a result, we are free to choose anything that fits these requirements.

Even if we add together all of the world’s grandeur, they bear little resemblance to Ishvara’s glory. When we see or think of any of Ishvara’s expressions, we should constantly think of him. Arjuna had enquired as to how he could possibly know Ishvara. Shri Krishna has offered the solution in this shloka. The visible expression serves as a reminder of the unseen Ishvara.

We should remember that the glory comes from Ishvara, not from that object or person, whenever we witness something magnificent and glorious. Then we must keep in mind that Ishvara is far more powerful and wonderful than the object or person. We will be able to maintain a constant awareness of Ishvara in this manner.

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.
