|Chapter 11||The Vision of the Universal Form||Verse 53|
Rudra Vaisnava Sampradaya:
The same instructions that Lord Krishna declared in verse 48 about seeing His visvarupa or divine universal form apply also in being able to see His original two armed form which is pure spiritual sat-cid-ananda or eternal existence, unlimited cognizance and endless bliss.
Brahma Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Sri Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Kumara Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Now Lord Krishna is answering why His two-armed human form is so rarely seen. Although millions and millions of brahmins study the Vedas every day, that in itself is not enough to qualify themselves to see His enchanting human form. Likewise neither by executing severe penance, offering extravagant donations, or performing Vedic rituals perfectly is one able to see Lord Krishna in His human forms as Arjuna has seen Him.
