Chapter 15: The Yoga of the Supreme Person

Bg 15.18
TEXT 18
yasmat ksaram atito 'ham
aksarad api cottamah
ato 'smi loke vede ca
prathitah purusottamah
SYNONYMS
yasmāt—because; kṣaram—the fallible; atītaḥ—transcendental; aham—I; akṣarāt—from the infallible; api—better than that; ca—and; uttamaḥ—the best; ataḥ—therefore; asmi—I am; loke—in the world; vede—in the Vedic literature; ca—and; prathitaḥ—celebrated; puruṣottamaḥ—as the Supreme Personality.
TRANSLATION
Because I am transcendental, beyond both the fallible and the infallible, and because I am the greatest, I am celebrated both in the world and in the Vedas as that Supreme Person.
PURPORT
No one can surpass the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Kṛṣṇa-neither the conditioned soul nor the liberated soul. He is, therefore, the greatest of personalities. Now it is clear here that the living entities and the Supreme Personality of Godhead are individuals. The difference is that the living entities, either in the conditioned state or in the liberated state, cannot surpass in quantity the inconceivable potencies of the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
