Shloka Translation
BG – Ch. 18- Ver. 77:

And as I think back on that most amazing and glorious cosmic form of Lord Krishna, I am continually amazed and filled with delight.

Even the greatest yogis rarely view the cosmic form of the Lord, therefore Arjuna was fortunate to see it. Arjuna was his disciple and buddy, making him very precious to him, according to Shree Krishna, who informed him that he was displaying the global form to him.
Because he was lucky enough to participate in the heavenly pastimes as the narrator, Sanjay also had the opportunity to glimpse that cosmic form. There are times when a grace comes our way without warning. If we make the best use of it, we can advance in our sadhana quickly. Sanjaya is continually reflecting on what he witnessed and moving with passion.

Verse & what we can learn

Sanjaya was likewise able to observe Krishna’s universal form being displayed to Arjuna thanks to Vyasa’s kindness. Of fact, it is claimed that Lord Kirshna has never before displayed such a form. Arjuna was the only one to view it, but several other great devotees, like Vyasa, were able to see Krishna’s universal form at the same time. He is regarded as a potent avatar of Kirshna and one of the greatest devotees of the Lord. This was revealed by Vyasa to his student Sanjaya, who recalled and continually delighted in Krishna’s magnificent form as it was shown to Arjuna.
