|Arjuna said: "I have heard your discourse on confidential spiritual matters which You have delivered unto me, and my illusion is now dispelled.|
O lotus-eyed one, I have heard from you in detail about the appearance and disappearance of every living entity, as realized through Your inexhaustible glories.
O greatest of all personalities, O supreme form, though I see here before me your actual position, I wish to see how You have entered into this cosmic manifestation. I want to see that form of Yours.
If you think that I am able to behold your cosmic form, O my Lord, O master of all mystic power, then kindly show me that universal self."
The Lord said: "My dear Arujan, O son of Partha, behold now My opulences, hundreds of thousands of varied divine forms, multicolored like the sea.
O best of the Bharatas, see here the different manifestations of Adityas, Rudras, and all the demigods. Behold the many things which no one has ever seen or heard before.
Whatever your wish to see can be seen all at once in this body. This universal form can show you all that you now desire, as well as whatever you may desire in the future. Everything is here completely.
But you cannot see me with your present eyes. Therefore I give to you divine eyes by which you can behold my mystic opulence."
Sanjaya said: "O King, speaking thus, the Supreme, the Lord of all mystic power, the Personality of Godhead, displayed His universal form to Arjuna".
Arjuna saw in that universal form unlimited mouths and unlimited eyes. It was all wondrous. The form was decorated with divine, dazzling ornaments and arrayed in many garbs. He was garlanded gloriously, and there were many scents smeared over His body. All was magnificent, all expanding unlimited. Ajuna saw this.
If hundreds of thousands of suns rose up at once into the sky, they might resemble the effulgence of the Supreme being in that universal form.
At that time Arjuna could see in the universal form of the Lord the unlimited expansions of the universe situated in one place although divided into many, many thousands.
