Bhagavad Gita As It Is -
Chapter 10 Text 40
nanto 'sti mama divyanam
esa tuddesatah prokto
vibhuter vistaro maya
na--nor; antah--a limit; asti--there is; mama--My; divyanam--of the divine; vibhutinam--opulences; parantapa--O conqueror of the enemies; esah--all this; tu--but; uddesatah--as examples; proktah--spoken; vibhuteh--of opulences; vistarah--the expanse; maya--by Me.
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.
As stated in the Vedic literature, although the opulences and energies of the Supreme are understood in various ways, there is no limit to such opulences; therefore not all the opulences and energies can be explained. Simply a few examples are being described to Arjuna to pacify his inquisitiveness.
This purport reminds me that Srila Prabhupada accepted Jesus as the Son of God and the Catholic church as the true Christian church because of their "parampara" system of Popes.
