ALL OF CREATION IS BUT A SPARK OF THE SUPREME

ALL OF CREATION IS BUT A SPARK OF THE SUPREME

10.39: Furthermore, O Arjuna, I am the generating seed of all existences. There is no being-moving or unmoving-that can exist without Me.
40: O mighty conqueror of enemies, there is no end to My divine manifestations. What I have spoken to you is but a mere indication of My infinite opulences.
41: Know that all beautiful, glorious, and mighty creations spring from but a spark of My splendor.
42: But what need is there, Arjuna, for all this detailed knowledge? With a single fragment of Myself I pervade and support these entire universes.
PURPORT
THE SUPREME LORD is represented throughout the entire material universes by His entering into all things as the Supersoul. The Lord here tells Arjuna that there is no point in understanding how things exist in separate grandeur. He should see all things as existing due to Krishna's entering them as Supersoul. From Brahma, the most gigantic material entity, on down to the smallest ant-all entities are existing because the Supreme Lord has entered each and is sustaining it. Worship of demigods is discouraged because even the greatest demigods, such as Brahma and Shiva, only represent a part of the Supreme Lord's opulence. The Supreme Lord is asamardha, which means that no one is greater than He, or equal to Him. By studying the opulences of Krishna, one can come to understand why one should worship Him. Pure devotees concentrate their minds in Krishna consciousness, in full devotional service; and so they worship Him Who sustains the entire cosmic manifestation by one fraction of His divine Yoga-power.
