|Chapter 11||The Vision of the Universal Form||Verse 29|
Rudra Vaisnava Sampradaya:
The metaphor of helplessly propelled was given in the previous verse. Now in this verse the metaphor of the warriors consciously entering by their own volition into the mouths of Lord Krishna's visvarupa or divine universal form is given by the example of a moth entering into a blazing fire with great speed only to be destroyed.
Brahma Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Sri Vaisnava Sampradaya:
As inanimate currents of rapid rivers are helplessly propelled into the ocean as given in the previous verse and like animate moths speedily flit into a blazing fire and are destroyed. The mighty warriors of the Kaurava and Pandava armies are propelled helplessly as they speedily rush to their deaths on the battlefield and into the fiery mouths of Lord Krishna's visvarupa or divine universal form.
Kumara Vaisnava Sampradaya:
After the illustration of currents of water which are inanimate in the previous verse, Lord Krishna gives an illustration of animate beings referring to moths rushing into a blazing fire and being destroyed is the same as the mighty warriors of the Kaurava and Pandava armies rushing to their destruction on the battlefield as depicted by speedily entering the flaming mouths of Lord Krishna's visvarupa or divine universal form.
