Sri Krishna - Supreme Personality of Godhead - Manifestations

Prominent Splendorous Manifestations of Supreme Personality of Godhead, Shri Krishna

(from Chapter 10 of Bhagavad Gita)

In Chapter 10 of the Bhagavad Gita, Arjuna enquired Shri Krishna about His various mystic opulences; His various manifestations, etc. Arjuna was deeply immersed in the divinity of Shri Krishna. He wanted to taste the nectar of Shri Krishna’s words by hearing more and more about Shri Krishna’s Divine Opulences. Shri Krishna knows that Arjuna is His keen disciple, and His devoted friend, and above all Arjuna has accepted wholeheartedly, Shri Krishna as the Absolute Truth, the Eternal, the Transcendental, the unborn, the Summum Bonum ~ The Supreme Personality of Godhead; so Shri Krishna explained a mere of His Limitless Opulences to Arjuna.

Arjuna asked in Bhagavad Gita Chapter 10 Sloka 16:

Please tell me in detail of your divine opulences by which You pervade all these worlds.
Shri Krishna replied in Bhagavad Gita Chapter 10 Sloka 19
Yes, I will tell you of My Splendorous Manifestations, but only of those which are prominent, O Arjuna, for My opulence is Limitless.
