|Chapter 10||The Infinite Glories of the Ultimate Truth||Verse 38|
Rudra Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Of punishers Lord Krishna's vibhuti or divine, transcendental opulence is the rod of chastisement, the force by which the unruly are controlled. Of those desirous for success against opponents His vibhuti is diplomacy using the expedients of reconciliation, dissension, bribery and punishment. Of secrets with regard to esoteric and confidential matters His vibhuti is maunam or silence by maintaining nothing is revealed for verily the intention of one who keeps silent cannot be deciphered. Of the wise His vibhuti is wisdom.
Brahma Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Sri Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Lord Krishna reveals that of damayatam or chastisers His vibhuti or divine, transcendental opulence is the rod of punishment that punishes those who are infringement of the law. Of those who seek to succeed in conflict His vibhuti is the expedient policy of reconciliation, dissension, bribery and dominance. Of all matters concerning secrecy His vibhuti is maunam or silence.
Kumara Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Among the subduing power of rulers, Lord Krishna's vibhuti or divine, transcendental opulence is the power of punishment that keeps the wrongdoers in line. His vibhuti is that policy which leads to success. Of secrets His vibhuti is maunam or silence which is inviolable being the master of all secrecy and His vibhuti of the wise is the wisdom of those who are self-realised.
