A Summary of the Srimad Bhagavata Mahapuranam-3.10.



Chapter-3: Kapila’s Instructions to Devahuti - 10.


The beauty should be perfect, as incomplete, imperfect beauty cannot attract. But we have not seen perfect beauty anywhere in the world.

Every beauty is imperfect; it has a flaw behind it, which we always ignore for the time being, for practical purposes; and that which is ignored will come up one day or the other and tell us that our concept of the beautiful object is not complete. But here, it is not like that. Nothing is hidden; it is open beauty.

Thus, Maharishi Kapila takes us gradually from the various parts of the Supreme Person to every other part.

We can look at His head, His eyes, His nose, His hands, His chest, His whole person. What do we see there? We see the whole cosmos embedded in Him.

We are not looking at an extra-cosmic Person standing on the top of the world, with His feet on the Earth as if the Earth has no connection with Him.

This Mighty Person, called the Visvarupa, includes all the creation that He is supposed to have made.

In the Visvarupa-darsana we find all the worlds rolled up in one mass.

"Ihaikastham   jagat   krtsnam   pasyadya   sacaracaram (B.G. 11.7) : -

“You can see the whole universe here,” says Bhagavan in his Visvarupa.
