Aham sarvasy prabhavo 10.8

Standard

10.8

ahaṁ sarvasya prabhavo mattaḥ sarvaṁ pravartate

iti matvā bhajante māṁ budhā bhāva-samanvitāḥ

ahaṁ -I am 

sarvasya -in the entire, all

prabhavo -seen in capacity/capability/influence in the

mattaḥ -oversight of the religion (mattam – Telugu for religion)

sarvaṁ -of the entire

pravartate -their behaviors

iti -thus

matvā -consider (matva/matram)

bhajante -worshiping to

māṁ -attain me

budhā -with that intellect 

bhāva-samanvitāḥ- emotion that shows (bhava) equal to being accompanied (with God).

Full meaning:

I am in the entire, seen in the capacity/capability/influence in the oversight of the religion of the entire, their behaviors, thus (as a result) consider worshiping to attain me with that intellect, emotion that shows equal to being accompanied (by God). 

Note: iti is “thus” and as with also the verses (Adhyesyate ca ya imam 18.70), (adhyatma-jnana-nityatvam 13.11), and (adharmam dharma iti ya 18.32). I have consistently used the same meaning for each word, and not interchangeably. For example, atma is always the soul, aham is always I am, ca is always also and so forth. 

What does it say in Gita?

 

This meaning is not entirely different. 

 

About Iksvakave

I am on a quest to understand my religion --- Hinduism. I have decided to keep a log of my discoveries, and experiences and what I have come to learn in the process. I like to travel through people vicariously. To observe the working of the mind, body and spirit. And heart. The soul infact is what our bodies have and what we are ultimately or in the end! The pricelessness of the soul is a soul is only potentially divine. Our journey here is therefore to understand that divinity in our lives. The ideals of societies, language, culture religion, and spirituality, is what interests me. what we know and don't know and outside of our four walls, maybe the priceless truth of that journey here on earth also, our yoga to be learned and equally perfected in life. What this blog is about is the values of the mother tongue India. And the values and culture of India and my nationality America. Pricelessness of it one will come to know you see. The forehead, is the center of the Hindu conscious. veena kodali
