The Cosmic Body (Vishwarupa) :Wisdom Stimulus 102: Bhagvad Gita for Self Management

Arjuna was describing Krishna cosmic form and while describing he see that all his enemies ( who are his opponents ) in Kauravas are actually eaten up by Krishna .

Everything in this world gets dissolved or eaten up after some time. Arjuna here metamorphically talks about one of the very fundamental understanding of life, that everything which gets created , gets again dissolved .

Arjuna was having a lot of fear about his opponent like Drona ( who is teacher ) , Bhisma ( who is a great warrior and grandfather of Arjuna ) after seeing that they are all getting consumed into Krishna’s mouth throught the teeth, he becomes free from fear. He now start realizing the inevitable truths of the world .

The Cosmic Body (Vishwarupa) : Wisdom Stimulus 101 :Bhagvad Gita for Self Management

Arjuna describes the force of cosmic dissolution, which is there in the cosmic form . Arjuna, says the certain portion of the cosmic form is blazing with the fire of cosmic dissolution. We can ask yourself, that what is cosmic dissolution . The whole universe is being created every moment, and at the same time, getting dissolved every moment . That in itself brings fear and also brings us out of fear after further reflection.

The Cosmic Body (Vishwarupa) XV : Wisdom Stimulus 100 : Bhagvad Gita for Self Management

Here we again see a interesting description of cosmic form of Lord Krishna. He has number of mouths and eyes, and he has also number of arms , thighs and feets . There are many thighs and feet’s , with many stomachs and with many teeth’s . It also says, that we are all a part of this cosmic expression.

It again shows, somehow that we are a one body and we are created out from that single body. Then why don’t we closely associate with that single body awareness. It is just because, most of us are two limited to our own body consciousness. Not, only that we are limited to the extent of our awareness of body in the parts of the body where we either we feel pleasure or we feel pain . It is limited concept of body is a hurdle for us to see a wider cosmic body which expands from individual to family to organizations , industry , state , nation and the world and also universe . Stepping out from body consciousness, limited to our body is the first step towards an expanded cosmic consciousness . Arjuna subtlety, put up this message when describing the cosmic form of Krishna.

The Cosmic Body ( Vishwarupa) XIV :Wisdom Stimulus 99 : Application of Bhagvad Gita in Self Management

The 22nd verses on cosmic vision of cosmic body, basically points out , that different gods , and also different kinds of beings, are all part of the cosmic body . This cosmic body is source of all that you see in the world . So contemplating on it , helps you to go to the plane of oneness . As when you move ahead, with the verse, you feel that somehow all these differences you see , of religion , caste , gods , and different community gets eliminate to one single cosmic form ,which is beyond the time and space .

Rudras , Adityas , Vasus , Viswadevas they all exsist in this form . At the same time , maruts ( warrior gods ) , Celestial singers ( Gandharvas) , Yakshas , demons and the perfected one the siddha they are all part of this great and gigantic cosmic form of Krishna . He somehow through this forms brings you to the oneness. This is what Arjuna was describing about Krishna with heart filled with bliss, and experience of the cosmic form . He is emanating, actually a deeper understanding of the unity of the world .

Arjuna now sees a host of Gods which are present in the Krishna Cosmic form and who are spontaneously surrendering to Lord Krishna’s cosmic form . To understand and go beyond metaphor , Arjuna here gives hints that how different natural forces ( whose principles are referred as Gods is a part of the cosmic form) and becomes one with it. He also mentions about sages chanting hymns out there on the praise of the gods which are the principle behind the grand creatrix of the world .

The Cosmic Body ( Vishwarupa) XIII - Wisdom Stimulus 97 - Bhagvad Gita for Self Management

Arjuna description of the cosmic form of Krishna continues . This Cosmic form is the expression of cosmic consciousness . It fills the space between heaven and earth and at the same time , the all quarters . Not only that , it is the base of three worlds and seeing the cosmic form which expands through the three worlds of waking – dream and deep sleep. It express this all pervading one consciousness into the three world . That makes it one of the terrible and at the same time a wonderful form . This wonder and terriblity of the form makes all beings trembling at fear.
