Of letters I am the letter A. Amongst compound words I am the dual. I alone am the eternal flow of the time factor and I am the Creator, who gazes in all directions.
Bhagavad Gita - Chapter 10 - Vibhuti Yoga - The Yoga of Divine Splendor
I am death, the destroyer of all things. I am the manifestation of all things yet to be. Of women I am Kirti, Shri, Vak, Smriti, Medha, Dhriti and Kshama.
Of the songs of the Sama Veda I am the Brihat-Sama. Of Vedic rhythms I am the Gayatri. Of months I am Margashirsha and amongst seasons I am the flower-bearing spring.
I am the gambling of cheaters and of the splendid I am splendor. I am victory and determination. I am the might of the mighty.
I am Vasudeva amongst the Vrishni Dynasty. I am Arjuna amongst the Pandavas. Of philosophers I am Vyasa and amongst scholars I am Ushana.
I am the punishment enforced by those who chastise. I am the conduct of those that desire victory. I am the silence of secrets and I am the knowledge of the wise.
I am the seed of all living beings, O Arjuna. There is nothing moving or non-moving, that can exist without Me.
O conqueror of the enemy, My divine glories are unlimited. Only a fraction of their extent has been explained by Me.
Whatever exists that is wonderful, beautiful or glorious, know that it has manifest from but a particle of My power.
But what is the necessity of knowing all this, O Arjuna? I support the entire universe simply by a portion of Myself.
