|Chapter 11||The Vision of the Universal Form||Verse 3|
Rudra Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Arjuna continues further confirming that all Lord Krishna has stated is verily the absolute truth and that he has no doubt about it; yet still out of curiosity he desires to see Lord Krishna's resplendent visvarupa or divine universal form endowed with all knowledge, all power, all majesty, all dominion and all splendor.
Brahma Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Sri Vaisnava Sampradaya:
Lord Krishna is addressed as paramesvara or the Supreme Sovereign Lord. Although Arjuna has fully accepted all that has been stated by Lord Krishna; he still desires that the Supreme Lord Krishna being the abode of all glorious attributes, out of compassion for His lieges and devotees show His resplendent, unparalleled visvarupa or divine universal form expressive of His divine, transcendental powers such as ruling, protecting, creating, maintaining, sustaining and destroying. Only the Supreme Lord Krishna, the ultimate reality of all realities, who is sublimely unique from everything else in existence is able to reveal this form.
Kumara Vaisnava Sampradaya:
The reality about the Supreme Lord Krishna is being confirmed to be precisely what He has declared it to be, the total repository of extraordinary, phenomenal power and majesty. The word evam means it is a certainty and denotes that it should not be construed that Arjuna has no faith in Lord Krishna because he desires to see His visvarupa or divine universal form possessed of full power, energy, glory, dominion and effulgence.
