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. If you give $25 or more, we'll email you a gift of the Bhagavad-gita audio book. How about that? Click here to donate.

BG Chap 13 - The Paramātmā's svarūpa - Undivided

Although the Supersoul appears to be divided in all the separate living entities, He is undivided. He is one not divided up within all the jīvas who are separate entities. But He appears to be situated as if separate like each jīva. Also it is said in Vedic literature that one Viṣṇu is present everywhere by His omnipotence, just as the sun appears in many places to many persons. He is the maintainer, destroyer and creator of all things. It can also be said that as the cause, He is situated in all the moving and non-moving entities undivided, and as the effect or product, He is situated separately as each one. As Nārāyaṇa, He is the protector of the living beings during the duration of kalpa, the destroyer at the time of pralaya, and the creator at the time of creation.
