Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 10 Text 12-13
arjuna uvaca
param brahma param dhama
pavitram paramam bhavan
purusam sasvatam divyam
adi-devam ajam vibhum

ahus tvam rsayah sarve
devarsir naradas tatha
asito devalo vyasah
svayam caiva bravisi me

arjunah uvaca--Arjuna said; param--supreme; brahma--truth; param--supreme; dhama--sustenance; pavitram--pure; paramam--supreme; bhavan--You; purusam--personality; sasvatam--original; divyam--transcendental; adi-devam--the original Lord; ajam--unborn; vibhum--greatest; ahuh--say; tvam--of You; rsayah--sages; sarve--all; deva-rsih--the sage among the demigods; naradah--Narada; tatha--also; asitah--Asita; devalah--Devala; vyasah--Vyasa; svayam--personally; ca--also; eva--certainly; bravisi--You are explaining; me--unto me.


Arjuna said: You are the Supreme Personality of Godhead, the ultimate abode, the purest, the Absolute Truth. You are the eternal, transcendental, original person, the unborn, the greatest. All the great sages such as Narada, Asita, Devala and Vyasa confirm this truth about You, and now You Yourself are declaring it to me.


I love the way Srila Prabhupada opens his purport; In these two verses the Supreme Lord gives a chance to the modern philosopher, for here it is clear that the Supreme is different from the individual soul. Arjuna, after hearing the essential four verses of Bhagavad-gita in this chapter, became completely free from all doubts and accepted Krsna as the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
