Bhagwat Geeta, Class 152 – Chapter 11 Viśvarũpa Darshana Yogaha, Verses 51 to 55

Viśvarũpam is a mixture of positive and negative; As long as we are in the relative world, everything has an opposite.  If Lord is Srishti kariyam, the same lord will also be laya karanam.  Lord will give both punyam and pavam.  We should see them as complementary and accept or reject them both.  But immature […]

Bhagwat Geeta, Class 151 – Chapter 11 Viśvarũpa Darshana Yogaha, Verses 44 to 46

Lord Krishna pointed out that he is kala tattvam – time principle.  Time and space are inseparable; when you appreciate lord as kalaha you also appreciate the lord as desaha.  Then everything existing in time must also be Eeswara.  We won’t be able to answer questions like when the time was created or where was […]

Bhagwat Geeta, Class 149 – Chapter 11 Viśvarũpa Darshana Yogaha, Verses 33 to 34

Acting according dharma is surrendering individual will to Dharma.  Dharma is the will of God, surrendering to dharma is surrendering to the will of the god.  When you act according to your will without regard to Dharma, then the individual will is not in alignment with Dharma or the will of God.  Arjuna’s will based […]

Bhagwat Geeta, Class 148 – Chapter 11 Viśvarũpa Darshana Yogaha, Verses 33 to 34

Seeing the Viśvarũpa darshanam, Arjuna goes through two emotions.  The first emotion was wonder and the second was fear, because he saw Lord destroying everything.  Arjuna had a question whether the Lord was compassionate.  He asked Krishna who are you and what are your functions.  From the standpoint of time, the Lord is called kala […]

Bhagwat Geeta, Class 147 – Chapter 11 Viśvarũpa Darshana Yogaha, Verses 30 to 33

Viśvarũpa consists of everything including time.  Time and space are an integral property of creation.  Time and space can never be separated from creation, they arise along with creation.  When Arjuna experiences the viśvarũpa, he also experiences time principle.  This invisible all-pervading time principle or kala tattvam is symbolized by the mouth of the lord.  […]

Bhagwat Geeta, Class 146 – Chapter 11 Viśvarũpa Darshana Yogaha, Verses 23 to 29

Blessed by Dhivya Chakshu, Arjuna is having viśvarũpa darshanam of the Lord.  He goes through three stages and his reaction to each stage is different.  First stage is wonder.  Anything in mass scale results in wonder, similar to seeing water in a huge waterfall.  Verse 23 Oh Lord! People are frightened by seeing your huge […]

Bhagwat Geeta, Class 145 – Chapter 11 Viśva Roopa Darshana Yogaha, Verses 18 to 22

To have viśvarũpa darshanam, we require physical eye to see the universe as the body of the eye.  We are all gifted with physical eye.   But this is not enough, we also need the attitude by which we look upon the universe as the body of the Lord.  Lord is the material cause of the […]

Bhagwat Geeta, Class 144 – Chapter 11 Viśva Roopa Darshana Yogaha, Verses 14 to 18

For viśvarũpa darshanam in addition to regular eye, we need a special attitude which is born out of study of scriptures as well as a prepared mind.  Without the prepared mind, we can see viśva but it will not be seen as viśvarũpa Eeswara.  Knowledge, cognitive factors, and a pure mind all required for viśvarũpa […]

Bhagwat Geeta, Class 143 – Chapter 11 Viśva Roopa Darshana Yogaha, Verses 7 to 13

Lowkiga sakshu (presence of lord) and divya sakshu (prepared mind) are both needed for Eeswara darshanam. Divya sakshu is a refined mind and not a physical mind.  Eeswara darshanam is possible only when both lowkiga sakshu and divya sakshu are present.  Lord’s universal form is available for everyone, but not everyone gets the same impact […]

Bhagwat Geeta, Class 142 – Chapter 11 Viśva Roopa Darshana Yogaha, Verses 4 to 6

Scriptures and puranas describe the vision of Eeswara darshanam as a thrilling and fulfilling experience.  Any experience involves two things.  One if the object of experience which should be available.  It is not enough that the object of experience is available, we require a subject of experience is also available.  Object of experience should be […]
