BG Chap 11 - The inconceivable powers of the Lord

Kṛṣṇa is the father of the world, of all moving and non moving beings. He is more venerable than all others being the supreme spiritual teacher of the scriptures. He is the spiritual master because He originally gave the Vedic instructions to Brahmā and presently He is also instructing Bhagavad-gītā to Arjuna. There is none equal to Him or greater than Him in all the worlds. He is the Lord with unsurpassed glory. Thus Arjuna bows down to the Lord touching the eight limbs – two hands, two feet, chest, head, voice and mind – of his body on the earth. Just as a father tolerates the offenses of his son, a friend that of his friend, and the husband tolerates the faults of his wife, Arjuna asked Kṛṣṇa to forgive his offenses.
