(Krishna and Arjuna)
ARJUNA: Krishna, I have a supreme desire.
KRISHNA: No true desire of yours will remain unfulfilled, Arjuna. Let me know what you want.
ARJUNA: My heart cries to see the Universal Form of God in you.
KRISHNA: Is that all. Behold!
(Arjuna, wonderstruck, sings.)
Pasyami devams tava deva dehe
Sarvams tatha bhutavisesasamghan
Brahmanam isam kamalasanastham
Rsims ca sarvan uragams ca divyan
[In Your Body, O Krishna, I see all the cosmic gods and numerous hosts of beings. I see Lord Brahma seated on his lotus throne and all the sages and celestial Nagas (snakes).]
Tvam adidevah purusah puranas
Tvam asya visvasya param nidhanam
Vetta ‘si vedyam ca param ca dhama
Tvaya tatarn visvam anantarupa
Vayur yamo ‘gnir varunah sasankah
Prajapatis tvam prapitamahas ca
Namo namas te ‘stu sahasrakrtvah
Punas ca bhuyo ‘pi namo namas te
[You are the Primal God.
You are the Ancient Purusha.
You are the Supreme Haven of the Universe.
You are the Knower.
You are the Knowable.
You are the Supreme Abode.
By You pervaded is the entire Universe,
O Being of infinite Forms.
You are Vayu, the wind god.
You are Yama, the cosmic destroyer.
You are Agni, the fire god.
You are Varuna, the sea god.
You are Shashanka, the moon god.
You are Prajapati, the grandsire of the Creation.
To You I offer my salutations,
To You I offer.
A thousand times, and again and again,
My salutations to You.]
