The eleventh chapter of the Gita records what may be termed a miracle.
Arjuna is enabled to see God as the all-embracing Universal spirit
before which the pairs of opposites, of good and evil, pleasure and
pain, light and darkness, and the like, disappear. This vision of
the Universal was too dazzling for Arjuna to see as a whole, and
even what he saw was too awful for sight to bear.
Literally, Arjuna was given the
divine eye to enable him to see the trans-dichotomous Viswaroopa,
which transcends the Relative and the Partial. The meaning of this
is that the aspiring soul may catch a glimpse of God, the Universal
Immanent Being, when by a pure and dedicated life, and by the
practice of serenity and constant meditation, the Yogi succeeds in
merging his self in the Universe and realizes the ultimate oneness
of all existence.
