Making it passed the infantile stage
of being dependent on the
material mind of the world,
Bhagavan Sri Krishna elevates Arjuna
into a higher understanding of His Esoteric Nature.
Beginning with just the awareness
of how he was an ensouled being
within matter and how he was destined
for greatness, Arjuna peered into
the Luminous Grandiosity of
Bhagavan Sri Krishna's Love
and from within the recesses
of his heart, Arjuna heard
the following words of advice.
Through being born again
into My Cosmic Vision,
the most pure realm of knowledge
is directly perceived by your unfettered soul.
Perfecting your sense of Self,
you have become the perfect conclusion of religion.
All that you have done for your royal kingdom
is nothing in comparison to all that I have done for you.
Having you as My Witness,
you are fortunate enough to be put under
My Divine Protection.
So long as I Am here,
so too shall you be with Me.
Carrying this Universe of Mine
as effortlessly as a grown man
carries a child, all living souls
descend into Me only to re-ascend back into Me.
Having no place to go where I Am not,
those who are as faithful as I Am
return all of the Love that streams forth
from My Being into the areas of the world's
soul in which My Love is most absent.
Constantly glorifying My Esoteric Nature
with the Ecstasy of Newly Bound Lovers,
the Self within your Self bows down
to that which is able to bring you closer to My Sacred Consciousness.
When I Am Personally Present
in this world in the form you see before you,
the foolish and misled minds of many nations
looks for something other than My Relational Prowess.
Wanting gross material pleasures over the sublime
laughter of My Cosmic Soul,
the fortune of interacting with My Devotees
is completely neglected in favor of a second rate conception of Life.
Though I Am Equal to all living souls
and impartial to the negative manifestations
of the world's soul,
My Devotees Never Leave My Side
for even one instance while they are in combat with their lower nature.
By humbling yourself and offering Me Gifts
that come from your heart,
I will hand all of you over to My Esoteric Nature.
I Am the goal of all goals
and the master of all masters.
More importantly, I Am your Love
for Me and I Am the sword of Devotion
that you ever so tightly cling to.
Being the beginning and the end
of your Cosmic Cycle of Perfecting your Essence,
this science of God-Realization is as precious as I Am.
By worshiping Me as you would this divine science,
the results of innumerable lifetimes of searching
will come to a Completion.
