Chapter 11 Vishwaroopa Darshana Yoga Verse 7

Anekavaktra nayanam anekaadbhuta darshanam;
Anekadivyaabharanam divyaanekodyataayudham.

With numerous mouths and eyes, with numerous wonderful sights,
with numerous divine ornaments, with numerous divine weapons uplifted such a form He showed.

Interpretation

This shloka explains the divine form that the Lord is showing as His Vishwaroopam. There are four aspects that Lord is concentrating on. First are the numerous mouths and eyes that Lord was showing. Then the second aspect talks about the numerous wonderful sights that His body is presenting. It is wonderful in the way it looks. Third is the numerous ornaments that are appearing on he body of the Vishwaroopam. The last aspect is the numerous divine weapons that were on display on His body. With all this the divine form of Lord has appeared.

Extending Interpretation to Mankind’s Life!

One of the basic things that you have to understand is that numerous mouths and eyes doesnt mean that a body has multiple mouths. You have already read in the previous shlokas that Vishwaroopam is the combination of all the beings that exist in this Universe. So, what appears are the mirror images of those beings that Lord has created and sent to this universe. When we talk about the divine ornaments and weapons we are here talking about what man has created from the mind given by God. That is also the reflection of His Vishwaroopam.
