Slow and steady wins the race! Only $12,000 $5,221 more is needed to keep alive and vibrant for the next six months. A big THANK YOU to those who've contributed to our Fall Fundraiser so far. If everyone gave a few dollars (say, between five and fifty) we could get rid of this banner and go back to doing what we love most: helping people all over the Internet discover Krishna.

BG Chap 10 - The vibhūtis of Kṛṣṇa - 51 thru 60

(51): Among creators, Kṛṣṇa is the four-headed Brahmā.
(52): Among all types of deaths happening at every moment, Kṛṣṇa is death which takes away all memory. SB 11.22.39 says death is extreme forgetfulness. (This implies that there are not various kinds of deaths but that we die at every moment, and when we leave the body, it is total forgetfulness). Kṛṣṇa is all-devouring death.
(53): Among the transformations of the body that will take place for the living beings in the future, Kṛṣṇa is the first one, the birth. He is the generating principle of all that is yet to be.
(54): Among women, He is Kīrti (fame),
(55): Śrī (fortune),
(56): Vāk (fine speech),
(57): Smṛti (memory),
(58): Medhā (intelligence),
(59): Dhṛti (steadfastness), and
(60): Kṣamā (patience).
These seven are considered among the wives of Dharma. Just by possessing a reflection of their qualities men become praiseworthy. Kīrti means fame because of good qualities like religiosity. Śrī means wealth in the areas of dharma, artha and kāma. It also means effulgence of the body. Vāk means cultured language which can express anything. Smṛti is the power of remembering things which have been experienced. Medhā is the power of understanding the meaning of many scriptures. Dhṛti is the power to extinguish agitation when it appears. Kṣamā is the power to remain with unchanging heart on receiving either joy or sorrow.
