Welcome to our Fall Fundraiser. It takes money and manpower to run Krishna.com. Our staff of enthusiasts tinker tirelessly to bring you the website all about Krishna, delivering Krishna conscious content to over 4000 people a day in 195 countries. That's more than a million people each year. Help us help more people. We still need to raise $12,000 $10,241 to keep Krishna.com alive and vibrant for the next six months. Thank you to those who've contributed $1759 so far. Please help. If everyone reading this gave five dollars—the equivalent of two gallons of gas at current US pump prices—we'd be done with this fundraiser and could go back to doing what we love most...

BG Chap 11 - Sañjaya's description of the universal form

Sañjaya was also empowered to see the universal form of the Lord. He describes what Arjuna saw, when Kṛṣṇa revealed His universal form. Arjuna saw in that form unlimited mouths, eyes and wonderful visions. The form was decorated with many wonderful ornaments, holding many wonderful weapons. The form wore celestial garlands and dress, astonishing ointments and fragrances. It was shining, greatly amazing, beyond compare, with faces in every direction. If thousands of suns rose simultaneously in the sky, that effulgence would be similar to the effulgence of this universal form. What Arjuna saw was indescribable, yet Sañjaya is trying to give a mental picture of that great revelation to Dhṛtarāṣṭra. Neither Sañjaya nor Dhṛtarāṣṭra was present, but Sañjaya, by the grace of Vyāsa, could see whatever happened. Thus he now compares the situation, as far as it can be understood, to an imaginable phenomenon (i.e., thousands of suns).
