Image for Lessons for Bhagavad Gita 10.1 - God's Gift

Chapter 10 - Vibhooti Yoga

In this section, we will continue with the 8th Shloka.  Please refer to the earlier posts in Part 1 and Part 2.

अहं सर्वस्य प्रभवो मत्तः सर्वं प्रवर्तते

इति मत्त्वा भजन्ते मां बुधाः भाव समन्विताः

अहं  — I;  सर्वस्य — of everything;  प्रभवो — origin, starting point, source

सर्वस्य प्रभवो — am the origin / source of everything

मत्तः — from me; सर्वं — everything; प्रवर्तते — originates

मत्तः सर्वं प्रवर्तते —  everything (in Creation) originates from within me

इति मत्त्वा —  by knowing this, by realizing this cosmic truth

भजन्ते मां –>  मां भजन्ते — sing my praise

बुधाः — the wise people, the enlightened ones, those who are attracted to the spiritual path

भाव समन्विताः  — those who abide by noble virtues and values

बुधाः भाव समन्विताः मां  इति मत्त्वा भजन्ते  —  the wise, the enlightened people , the ones who are attracted to the spiritual path,  sing my praise  and worship me with full knowledge of this Truth.


मच्छित्ताः  मद्गतः प्राणाः बोधयन्तः परस्परं

कथयन्तश्च मां नित्यं तुष्यन्ति च रमन्ति च  

मच्छित्ताः  — those who focus their mind in me all the time, those whose thoughts are always centered around ME (that is, GOD)

मद्गतः प्राणाः —  whose energy is spent in the Service of ME (GOD)

बोधयन्तः — (they) teach, propagate

परस्परं — among themselves, to one another

कथयन्तश्च मां नित्यं —   (they) narrate, discuss my Glory regularly, all the time

तुष्यन्ति च रमन्ति च– they take pleasure by involving in such activities & by spending their time and energy in this manner — meaning, they have no other recreation or entertainment 

Such spiritually oriented devotees harbour thoughts about ME (GOD) all the time (that means, whenever they have some spare time), devote all their energy in activities connected with talking about my Glory, singing my Praise and any conversation that they would have would be around spiritual topics (and NOT on gossip mongering) — these activities form the central purpose of life, with no other recreations or forms of entertainment.

I will cover Shlokas 10 and 11in the next edition
