BG Chap 10 - A spark of Kṛṣṇa's splendor

There is no end to the divine manifestations (vibhūtis) of Kṛṣṇa, and what He had described is but a mere indication to His infinite opulences, for He had spoken only one portion of the breadth of the topic. As stated in the Vedic literature, although the opulences and energies of the Supreme are understood in various ways, there is no limit to such opulences; therefore not all the opulences and energies can be explained. Simply a few examples are being described to Arjuna to pacify his inquisitiveness. All opulent, beautiful and glorious creations spring from but a spark of Kṛṣṇa’s splendor. Whatever object in past, present or future displays majesty, excellence or strength arises and gains its perfection from a fragment of His power. Anything extraordinarily opulent should be considered to represent Kṛṣṇa's opulence. All these forms and things are non different from Kṛṣṇa being under His control and being pervaded by Him.
