मया प्रसन्नेन तवार्जुनेदं
रूपं परं दर्शितमात्मयोगात् |
यन्मे त्वदन्येन न दृष्टपूर्वम् || 47||
mayā prasannena tavārjunedaṁ
rūpaṁ paraṁ darśhitam ātma-yogāt
tejo-mayaṁ viśhvam anantam ādyaṁ
yan me tvad anyena na dṛiṣhṭa-pūrvam
śhrī-bhagavān uvācha—the Lord said; mayā—by me; prasannena—being pleased; tava—with you; arjuna—Arjun; idam—this; rūpam—form; param—divine; darśhitam—shown; ātma-yogāt—by my Yogmaya power; tejaḥ-mayam—resplendent; viśhwam—cosmic; anantam—unlimited; ādyam—primeval; yat—which; me—my; tvat anyena—other than you; na dṛiṣhṭa-pūrvam—no one has ever seen
The Lord said: By My grace, through My own yoga-power, Ο Arjuna, I have shown you this supreme form, resplendent, universal, infinite, and primeval, which none but you has ever seen.
Maya prasannena: It is clear that the Lord showers His grace on his devotees who worship Him with single-minded devotion.
Swami Vivekananda Says —
He who believes not, believes not even after seeing, and thinks that it is all hallucination, or dream and so on. The great transfiguration of Krishna — the Vishvarupa (form universal) — was seen alike by Duryodhana and by Arjuna. But only Arjuna believed, while Duryodhana took it to be magic! Unless He makes us understand, nothing can be stated or understood. Somebody comes to the fullest faith even without seeing or hearing, while somebody else remains plunged in doubt even after witnessing with his own eyes various extraordinary powers for twelve years! The secret of it all is His grace! But then one must persevere, so that the grace may be received.[Source]
