Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 11 Text 38
tvam adi-devah purusah puranas
tvam asya visvasya param nidhanam
vettasi vedyam ca param ca dhama
tvaya tatam visvam ananta-rupa

tvam--You; adi-devah--the original Supreme God; purusah--personality; puranah--old; tvam--You; asya--of this; visvasya--universe; param--transcendental; nidhanam--refuge; vetta--the knower; asi--You are; vedyam--the knowable; ca--and; param--transcendental; ca--and; dhama--refuge; tvaya--by You; tatam--pervaded; visvam--the universe; ananta-rupa--O unlimited form.


You are the original Personality of Godhead, the oldest, the ultimate sanctuary of this manifested cosmic world. You are the knower of everything, and You are all that is knowable. You are the supreme refuge, above the material modes. O limitless form! This whole cosmic manifestation is pervaded by You!


Srila Prabhupada opens his purport with this beautiful statement; Everything is resting on the Supreme Personality of Godhead; therefore He is the ultimate rest. I find my late evening japa takes on this quality of rest very nicely.
