Sloka 31

In nature, wind performs the work of purification very effectively. It converts impure water into water vapor; it carries away the dirty smells of the earth; it makes fire burn by fuelling it with oxygen. It is thus the great purifier of nature.

Lord Ram was the most powerful warrior on the earth and his bow was the deadliest weapon. Yet, he never once abused his dominant superiority. Every time he utilized his weapon, it was only for good. He was thus the perfect wielder of weapons. Ram was also an Avatār of God, and thus Shree Krishna identifies with him.

The Ganges is a holy river that has its beginning from the divine feet of the Lord. It descended on earth from the celestial abodes. Many great sages have performed austerities on its banks, adding to the holiness of its waters. Unlike normal water, if water from the Ganges is gathered in a vessel, it does not putrefy for years. This phenomenon was very pronounced earlier, but has reduced in intensity in modern times because of the millions of gallons of pollutants being poured into the Gange

Sloka 32

Earlier in the twentieth verse, Shree Krishna had stated that he is the beginning, middle, and end of all living beings. Now, he states the same for all creation, “All that is created, such as space, air, fire, water, and earth, is called sarga. I am the Creator (ādi), Maintainer (madhya), and Annihilator (anta) of these. Therefore, the processes of creation, maintenance, and dissolution can be meditated upon as my vibhūtis.”

Sloka 33

In Sanskrit, all letters are formed by combining a half-letter with “a.” For example, क् + अ = क (k + a = ka). Hence, the letter “a” is the most important in the Sanskrit alphabet. “A” is also the first vowel of the alphabet, and since the vowels are written before the consonants, “A” comes at the very beginning.

Although Sanskrit is such an ancient language, it is highly refined and sophisticated. A common procedure in Sanskrit language is to combine words to form compound words. When, in the process of making one compound word, two or more words give up their case endings, it is called samāsa, and the resulting word is called samāsa pada, or compound word. There are primarily six kinds of samāsa: 1) dwandva, 2) bahubṛihi, 3) karm dhāray, 4) tatpuruṣh, 5) dwigu, 6) avyayī bhāv. Amongst these, dwandva is the best because both words remain prominent in it, while in the others, either one word becomes more prominent, or both words combine together to give the meaning of a third word. The dual word Radha-Krishna is an example of dwandva. Shree Krishna highlights it as his vibhūti.

Sloka 34
मृत्युः सर्वहरश्चाहमुद्भवश्च भविष्यताम्‌ ।
कीर्तिः श्रीर्वाक्च नारीणां स्मृतिर्मेधा धृतिः क्षमा ॥


I am the all-consuming Death. There are no distinctions after Death. Bhagavan is also the destroyer of all negative tendencies and thoughts.I am the origin as well as the end and what stays in the middle. Also I consume everything at the time of Cosmic dissolution. I am also the source of all new creations that are to come in future. Destruction is only a transformation or modification of the existing form of an object.

(a) कीर्तिः - Fame arising from Dharma, such a Kirti has beauty in it and alone is the Lord's glory itself.

(b) श्री = Prosperity, wealth that is again earned through right means and also spent for the right kind of activities. Wealth also means inner wealth, virtues and qualities.

(c) वाक्च = Speech that must be truthful, beneficial and sweet also, the Sattvik speech is referred here. Also what to speak- only Dharma and Jnana - that which is pure and purifies the speaker as well as others.

(d) स्मृति = Memory , the highest is rememberance of one's own true nature always.

(e) Medha - Intelligence, remembering the scriptures and knowing how to aptly apply them in our life. Therefore the power of the mind which enables one to hold om to the teachings of the scriptures is Medha.

(f) धृतिः (Dhriti) - Ability to hold on to spiritual practises at all times. Or the power of oneself to keep the body and the senses even amidst various kinds of sufferings. Also the power to keep onself unattached even when doing actions. It also means sometimes Courage.

(g) क्षमा - Means endurance, sometimes it is also used in the context of forgiveness.
These qualities when they manifest create such adjustments in the inner equipments of Man that we can perceive the Lord more clearly then in our lives.

Sloka 35
बृहत्साम तथा साम्नां गायत्री छन्दसामहम्‌ ।
मासानां मार्गशीर्षोऽहमृतूनां कुसुमाकरः॥


Among the hymns I am Brihat Saman, among the metres I am Gayatri, among the months I am Margizhi and among the seasons I am the flowery season.

"Samans" refer to songs of the Sama Veda. Of all the metres that are met with in the volume of the Sama Veda, the most difficult and complicated is the metre called 'Brihati'.

Of all the Meters I am Gayatri. I am that meter where Gayatri chanda is there. Or it could mean I am Gayatri Mantra.
Different Mantras are in different meters. Whoever chants the Gaytari Mantra is protected, that is my glory says the Lord.

Among the months I am Margizhi. Marga means path. 'Shirsha' means top or head. Or it means Highest Path. Highest path of reaching Bhagavan is by Bhakti. This Bhakti is exclusively to be practiced in Margizhi.

Of seasons I am the spring. Spring brings delight and thrill- it represents an air of celebration.

Hari Om

Shloka 34

I am that destroyer ( lord Yama) who takes away everything from a jeeva when death occurs. A person cannot take anything with him at the time of death other than the punya and paapa he accrues during his lifetime. I am the resource or source of all future prosperity. Amongst all the female devatas who are presiding deities over various aspects of creation, I am the devata for fame, prosperity,speech, memory, intelligence,fortitude and forgiveness.

Shloka 35

Among all the mantras in the Sama Veda, I am the Brihat Sama Mantra which is a very auspicious mantra glorifying the Lord, the infinite One. I am the Gayatri mantra among all Veda mantras. The greatness of the Gayatri mantra lies in the fact that it is the essence of the Vedas. If the Gayatri mantra is chanted, no other mantra needs to be chanted. Among the twelve months in the year, I am the Marga Shirsha. ( the period from the 15 th of December until the 15th of January). This is the time of year when the earth is ready with abundance of crops and produce. This month is also considered to be the time of dawn for the Devas and is the most auspicious time to perform all religious activities. Of all the seasons, I am spring,when all flowering plants blossom making everybody happy and beautifying the surroundings.

Shloka 36

Among those activities that rob us of our discriminative abilities, I am gambling. I am also the inner brilliance or intelligence found in the brilliant or intelligent people who are able to resist temptation to all gambling activities and all actions that bring about the downfall of a person. I am the Satva Guna ( spiritual inclination) in the Satvic people. Once this inclination is present, spiritual effort is required for spiritual fulfillment which will lead to spiritual success. I am all of the above.

HARI OM
VERSE-34
Of annihilators Lord Krishna's vibhuti is mrtyah or death which annihilates all memories and
remembrance. Of the six transformations of the body that lead up to death His vibhuti is birth

the first. Of women His vibhuti is kirti meaning excellent reputation. srir means lustrous

beauty, vak means articulate speach, smrtir means good memory, medha means discerning
intelligence, dhritih is patient fortitude and ksama is causeless forgiveness. These are the
seven qualities of a virtuous and by just possessing even a reflection of these qualities one
becomes praisworthy.

verse-35
In this verse Lord reveals that of all the hymns of all the vedas, His vibhuti is the brhad Sama.
This hymn is chanted at the conclusion of auspicious vedic ceremonies. Of chandasam or

Mantras composed in poetical meter His vibhuti is Gayatri mantra which is the best as by its

efficacy it confers Brahmin status on the qualified initiate. It is also sung at the time of picking

the soma plant by the demigods. Of months His vibhuti is Margasirsa when the grains are

harvested and of the seasons His vibhuti is the spring season.

verse-36
Of cheaters who defraud each other His vibhuti is gambling. Of the powerful His vibhuti is the valiant , of the victorious His vibhuti is victory, of the energetic His vibhuti is the endeavour
and His vibhuti is the strength of the mighty.

Sloka 34
There is a phrase in English, “as sure as death.” For one who is born, death is certain. All life inevitably ends in death, and thus the phrase, “dead end.” God is not merely the force of creation; he is also the force of destruction. He devours everything in the form of death. In the cycle of life and death, those who die are born again. Shree Krishna states that he is also the generating principle of all future beings.

Certain qualities are seen as adornments in the personality of women, while other qualities are viewed as especially praiseworthy in men. Ideally, a well-rounded personality is one that possesses both kinds of qualities. Here, Shree Krishna lists fame, prosperity, perfect speech, memory, intelligence, courage, and forgiveness, as virtues that make women glorious. The first three of these qualities manifest on the outside, while the next four manifest on the inside.

Besides this, the progenitor of humankind Prajapati Daksha had twenty-four daughters. Five of these were considered the best of women—Kirti, Smriti, Medha, Dhriti, and Kshama. Shree was the daughter of Sage Bhrigu. Vak was the daughter of Brahma. In accordance with their respective names, these seven women are the presiding deities of the seven qualities mentioned in this verse. Here, Shree Krishna enlists these qualities as his vibhūtis.


Sloka 35

Earlier Shree Krishna had said that of the Vedas he is the Sāma Veda, which is rich with beautiful devotional songs. Now he says that within the Sāma Veda, he is the Brihatsama, which has an exquisite melody. It is typically sung at midnight.

The Sanskrit language, like other languages, has distinctive systems of rhymes and meters for writing poetry. The poetry of the Vedas is in many meters. Amongst these, the Gayatri meter is very attractive and melodious.
The Gayatri mantra is a part of the sacred thread ceremony for young males, and is recited as a part of the daily rituals. The Devi Gayatri, the Rudra Gayatri, the Brahma Gayatri, the Paramhansa Gayatri, and several other Gayatri mantras are also found in the Vedas.

Margsheersh is the ninth month of the Hindu calendar. It falls in November-December. The temperature at that time in India is just right—neither too hot nor too cold. The crops in the field are harvested at this time of the year. For these reasons it is often the favorite month of the people.

Basant (spring season) is known as ṛitu rāja, or the king of seasons. It is a time when nature seems to be euphorically bursting forth with life. Many festivals are celebrated in spring, epitomizing the joy that pervades the atmosphere. Thus, amongst the seasons, spring manifests God’s opulence the most.




Sloka 36

Shree Krishna mentions not only virtue but also vice as his opulence. Gambling is a dangerous vice that ruins families, businesses, and lives. It was Yudhishthir’s weakness for gambling that led to the Mahabharat war. But if gambling is also God’s glory, then is there no harm in it, and why is it forbidden?

The answer is that God grants his power to the soul, and along with it, he gives the freedom of choice. If we choose to forget him, he gives us the power to forget. This is just as electric power can be used both to heat and cool a house. The user is free to choose how to utilize the power. However, the powerhouse that supplies the energy is not responsible for either the use or misuse of the power. Similarly, a gambler too possesses intellect and ability that is supplied by God. But if he decides to misuse these God-given gifts, then God is not responsible for the sinful deeds.

Sloka 37:
Sri Krishna son of vasudeva is a descendant of Vrishni of the Yadava clan. Among the Pandava's he is Dhananjaya ( giver of wealth) the unparalleled warrior . The Pandavas were victorious only because Bhagwan was on their side. One can say that the teacher enthused his student by praising him this way.

Among the munis He is Vyasa. Krishnadwipayana was later known as Veda Vyasa for his unique and elaborate style of writing. Vyasa authored the Puranas, which elaborated and made it possible for every body to understand the essence of the Vedas.

Kavi is one who is a seer of Vedic mantras according to the Upanishads.Usana here most likely refers to Sukracharya son of Bhrigu and Guru to the Asuras. The Upanishads mentions him to be a Vedic scholar. Bhagawan says amongst the Kavis he is Usana.

Sloka 38:

Bhagawan says he is the authority and the power behind those whose jobs are to punish people for their mis deeds.
The person is allowed to punish another , only because of this power of authority bestowed on him. Without this authority the person will not be able to execute his job .

Next Bhagawan says he is the silence of things that are kept secret. A secret remains a secret only when it is kept quiet. Hence to remain silent is the key to maintaining the secret. Knowledge of the self is often mentioned as a secret, because it is difficult to comprehend. The reason for this is because knowledge of the self can only be realizes when the mind is at total silence.

The knowledge that a person has makes him or her wise. To be a wise person means he has this Divine personality that is expressed because of the knowledge he has acquired . Bhagawan says he is that very knowledge that make a person wise.

Sloka 39:

Bhagawan once again emphasizes the main essence of the Gita- that self is the creator, sustainer and destroyer. The self is all pervading has no beginning or end. The self is the seed that contains within itself the sum total of all the universes. At the time of creation, everything emerges from this seed as all the things with names and forms as we know it. At pralaya, everything converges back into this seed. Nothing can exist without this seed, whether it is moving or non-moving.

Sloka 37:

Vrishni - A descendent of the Yadavas. Hence one of Bhagavan's name is "Vrishni". Lord says he is Vasudeva- one who stays everywhere , 'vas' dhatoo signifies this.
Among Pandavas I am Arjuna- whatever good qualities, virtues Arjuna has it is because of Bhagavan- this is the import.
Of the saints I am Vyasa- Vyasa should suggest all men of refelction. Vyasa also means 'vyasena' - one who can elaborate.
Among the Kavis I am Ushana. In the Upanishads Kavi means men of deep reflection, seers. Not much is known to us about Ushna to comment.

Sloka 38

Among the punishers I am the sceptre:
The law giver must see that he governs by the enforcing the laws.
दण्डो- a symbol of power, sovereignity. To rule over a kingdom there must be strict discipline, rules and regulations. One must be endowed with power. That power is Me.

Of conquerors I am the state craft
If one wants to win over an enemy one must have niti (statesmanship, strategy, planning). Bhagavan says this planning which is the secret of victory is Me.
The art of negation, planning and ability to put forward strategy in such a way that the nation gets benefit or for a greater cause, this type of नीतिर is Bhagavan.

Of things secret I am Silence
Just like secrecy is in silence (as long silence is maintained), the secret of the Self is also secret. It is enjoyed against only in deep silence. Indeed the Lord is the deep and unbroken silence.

The Knowledge of the Knowers am I
I am the Knowledge, source of all Knowledges - be it secular or spiritual.
