|Chapter 11||The Vision of the Universal Form||Verse 23|
Rudra Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Having seen Lord Krishna's almighty omnipotent visvarupa or divine universal form of terrible visage with unlimited faces, arms, bodies and mouths looking extremely fierce all the worlds are awe struck with fear and Arjuna states that he is also.
Brahma Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Sri Vaisnava Sampradaya:
The words bahu-damstra-karalam mean innumerable terrible teeth which was terrifying in appearance. The word lokah or worlds refers to the three types of beings inhabiting these worlds. Those who are benevolent, those who are inimical and those who are neutral. Almost all of them just like Arjuna were trembling in fright at the ferocity of Lord Krishna's visvarupa or divine universal form.
Kumara Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Lord Krishna's visvarupa or divine universal form was so colossal it extended beyond the sky into all the spaces between the galaxies and even unto the universes. Having unlimited feet, legs, arms, heads, faces mouths and teeth it was terrible to behold and caused the beings of all the worlds great trepidation and fear and Arjuna was feeling this as well.
