Bhagavan Shri Krishna said: Listen to these supreme teachings once more, O mighty-armed one. Because I desire your welfare, I shall speak them to you because you are very dear to Me.
Bhagavad Gita - Chapter 10 - Vibhuti Yoga - The Yoga of Divine Splendor
The demigods and great sages do not know My origin. Indeed, I am the origin of the demigods and the great sages.
One who knows Me as the birthless, beginningless Supreme Controller of all worlds is not bewildered amongst mortals, and is free from all karma.
Intelligence, knowledge, freedom from delusion, tolerance, truthfulness, self-control, pleasure, misery, birth, death, fear and fearlessness, nonviolence, equanimity, satisfaction, austerity, charity, fame and infamy – all these various conditions of the living beings arise from Me alone.
The Seven Sages, the Four Kumaras and the Manus, from whom all the living beings of this world have descended, are all manifest from My mind.
One who knows the truth of My splendor and the process of yoga becomes resolutely united with Me. Of this there is no doubt.
I am the source of everything. All things emanate from Me. Understanding this, the wise who are endowed with love, worship Me with all their heart.
Those who are always thinking of Me, who have dedicated their lives to Me, enlighten each other and feel great satisfaction and joy by always speaking about Me.
To those who are constantly devoted to Me and worship Me with love, I continue to bestow upon them devotional inspiration by which they may come to Me.
Out of compassion for them, I appear in their hearts and destroy with the shining lamp of knowledge the darkness that is born from ignorance.
