BG Chap 10 - The vibhūtis of Kṛṣṇa - 2 thru 10

(2): Kṛṣṇa is the cause of the creation, continuation and destruction of the bodies of all living entities or the beginning, middle and end of all living beings.
(3): Among the twelve Ādityas, Kṛṣṇa is Viṣṇu. The sun is given twelve names according to its position in the 12 zodiac signs throughout the year: Dhātṛ, Aryaman, Mitra, Varuṇa, Indra, Vivasvat, Pūṣan, Parjanya, Aṁśa, Bhaga, Tvaṣṭṛ and Viṣṇu. Among these, Kṛṣṇa is Viṣṇu.
(4): Among lights, He is the many-rayed sun.
(5): Among the winds, He is Marīci. Indra entered Diti’s womb and cut the embryo into 49 parts. In this way, the forty-nine kinds of air known as the Maruts appeared, and among them Kṛṣṇa represents Marīci.
(6): Kṛṣṇa is also the moon among stars. The moon is the lord of the constellations and thus here a relationship is indicated.
(7): Among the Vedas Kṛṣṇa is the Sāma Veda, because it is outstanding for its sweet songs.
(8): Among the devas, He is their king, Indra.
(9): Among the senses, He is the mind, which is difficult to conquer and which inspires the other senses to act.
(10): He is the jñāna-śakti, or power of consciousness in all living beings.
