Thou art the Father of the world— of all that move and all that do not move. Thou art the object of its worship, its most venerable Teacher. There is no one equal to Thee; how then, in the three worlds, could there be another superior to Thee, Ο Thou of incomparable might?
The Lord has already declared that He is the Father, Mother, Grandsire, of the universe. Arjuna understands the truth now, and worhships the Lord as Father and Guru. He is the highest Guru, the Guru of Gurus, the Universal Master (Jagadguru). The Lord is the only reality, and all else is ‘asat’ non-existing illusion. This being so, how can there be anything equal or greater than the Lord? He is the final refuge for all beings.
