Canto 10: The Summum BonumChapter 10: Deliverance of the Yamala-arjuna Trees

Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.10.29

kṛṣṇa kṛṣṇa mahā-yogiḿs

tvam ādyaḥ puruṣaḥ paraḥ

vyaktāvyaktam idaḿ viśvaḿ

rūpaḿ te brāhmaṇā viduḥ


kṛṣṇa kṛṣṇaO Lord Kṛṣṇa, O Lord Kṛṣṇa; mahā-yoginO master of mysticism; tvam — You, the exalted personality; ādyaḥ — the root cause of everything; puruṣaḥ — the Supreme Person; paraḥ — beyond this material creation; vyakta-avyaktam — this material cosmic manifestation, consisting of cause and effect, or gross and subtle forms; idam — this; viśvam — whole world; rūpam — form; te — Your; brāhmaṇāḥ — learned brāhmaṇas; viduḥ — know.


O Lord Kṛṣṇa, Lord Kṛṣṇa, Your opulent mysticism is inconceivable. You are the supreme, original person, the cause of all causes, immediate and remote, and You are beyond this material creation. Learned brāhmaṇas know [on the basis of the Vedic statement sarvaḿ khalv idaḿ brahma] that You are everything and that this cosmic manifestation, in its gross and subtle aspects, is Your form.


The two demigods Nalakūvara and Maṇigrīva, because of their continuing memory, could understand the supremacy of Kṛṣṇa by the grace of Nārada. Now they admitted, "That we should be delivered by the blessings of Nārada Muni was all Your plan. Therefore You are the supreme mystic. Everything — past, present and future — is known to You. Your plan was made so nicely that although we stayed here as twin arjuna trees, You have appeared as a small boy to deliver us. This was all Your inconceivable arrangement. Because You are the Supreme Person, You can do everything."
