BG Chap 11 - Understanding the unlimited Lord

Addressing Kṛṣṇa as Yogeśvara, Arjuna said that if he is qualified to see the universal form, then he would like to see it. Arjuna believes by Kṛṣṇa’s mystic power (Yogeśvara), Kṛṣṇa would enable him to see that form, even if he is unqualified. Arjuna could understand that for a living entity it is not possible to understand the unlimited infinite. If the infinite reveals Himself, then it is possible to understand the nature of the infinite by the grace of the infinite. The word yogeśvara indicates the Lord has inconceivable power. If He likes, He can reveal Himself by His grace, although He is unlimited.
