The Universal form of Vishnu 11.51


Drst Vedam– seeing the divine philosophical knowledge

Manusam — in all of the human (Telugu)

rupam — forms (Telugu)

tava —  in thy (in you)

saumyam — we must be accepting and kind to each other is what is implied. The real meaning is we must learn to get along with one another [Telugu].

O’ Janardana — people ruler you are

Idamnim — show this from this min  (Idam is this and nim — nimushum means minute)

asmin — this

samvrttan — applys to all

sacetah — the good behaviors  (Telugu)

prakrtim — this is the own nature’s way

gatah — of telling the past (Telugu)

Iksvakave Meaning:

Seeing the divine philosophical knowledge, in all of the humans forms, in you, — we must learn to get along with one another, people’s ruler you are. Show this from this min (that you are learning to get along) this, applys to all, the (our) good behaviors. This is the own nature’s way of telling the past.

Meaning Isckon:

When Arjuna thus saw Krishna in His original form, he said: O Janārdana, seeing this humanlike form, so very beautiful, I am now composed in mind, and I am restored to my original nature.

The reason for this verse is to show that our reason here is Saumyam. Our relationships to each other, and our true purpose lies in this. And in the way we learn our lessons from each other, treat one another and also teach one another.
