10.19. The Bhagavat said Yes. O the best among the Kurus ! I shall expound to you, only the chief auspicious manifesting powers of Mine. For, there would be no end to My details.

Shri Purohit Swami

10.19 Lord Shri Krishna replied: So be it, My beloved fried! I will unfold to thee some of the chief aspects of My glory. Of its full extent there is no end.

Sri Ramanuja

10.19 The Lord said O Arjuna, I shall tell you My auspicious manifestations - those that are prominent among these. The term ‘Pradhanya’ connotes pre-eminence. For it will be said, ‘Know Me to be the chief among family priests’ (10.24). I shall declare to you those that are prominent in the world. For it would not be possible to tell or listen to them in detail, because there is no limit to them. To be a Vibhuti, the manifestation referred to should be under the control of the Lord; because it is stated: ‘He who in truth knows this supernal manifestation and the seat of auspicious attributes’ (10.7), after listing the various kinds of mental dispositions like intelligence etc., of all beings. Similarly it has been stated there that ‘being the creator etc.,’ is meant by the term Yoga, and that their ‘being actuated,’ meant by the term Vibhuti. Again it is stated: ‘I am the origin of all; from me proceed everything; thinking thus, the wise worship Me with all devotion’ (10.8).

Sri Krsna clearly declares that he rules over all creatures by actuating them from within as their Self. He also declares His being the creator, sustainer and destroyer of everything, as connected by the term Yoga.

Sri Shankaracharya

10.19 Kuru-srestha, O best of the Kurus; hanta, now; since, on the other hand, it is not possible to speak exhaustively of them even in a hundred years, (there-fore) pradhanyatah, according to their importance, according as those manifestations are pre-eminent in their respective spheres; kathayisyami, I shall described; te, to you; atma-vibhutayah, My own glories; which are (hi, indeed) divyah, divine, heavenly. Na asti there is no; antah, end; me, to My; vistarasya, manifestations. ‘Of those, now listen to the foremost:’

Swami Adidevananda

10.19 The Lord said Indeed I shall tell you, O Arjuna, My auspicious manifestations (Vibhutis) - those that are prominent among these. There is no end to their extent.

Swami Gambirananda

10.19 The Blessed Lord said O best of the Kurus, now, according to their importance, I shall described to you My onw glories, which are indeed divine. There is no end to my manifestations.

Swami Sivananda

10.19 The Blessed Lord said Very well! Now I will declare to thee My divine glories in their prominence, O Arjuna; there is no end to their detailed description.
