Chapter 10: The Opulence of the Absolute

Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Bhagavad-gītā As It Is 10.40

nānto 'sti mama divyānāḿ

vibhūtīnāḿ parantapa

eṣa tūddeśataḥ prokto

vibhūter vistaro mayā


na — nor; antaḥa limit; asti — there is; mama — My; divyānām — of the divine; vibhūtīnām — opulences; parantapaO conqueror of the enemies; eṣaḥ — all this; tu — but; uddeśataḥas examples; proktaḥ — spoken; vibhūteḥ — of opulences; vistaraḥ — the expanse; mayā — by Me.


O mighty conqueror of enemies, there is no end to My divine manifestations. What I have spoken to you is but a mere indication of My infinite opulences.


As stated in the Vedic literature, although the opulences and energies of the Supreme are understood in various ways, there is no limit to such opulences; therefore not all the opulences and energies can be explained. Simply a few examples are being described to Arjuna to pacify his inquisitiveness.
