What is the supersensuous sight granted to Arjuna by Krishna? || Acharya Prashant, on Bhagavad Gita(2020)

October 28, 2020 | Acharya Prashant

Questioner (Q): What is the divine form of Shri Krishna? What is there for Arjuna to understand from it? How is this divine form different from the Truth that can't be seen or known?

What is meant by the divine sight given to Arjuna? Is there any way to experience the Supreme while being in this body through such sight usually referred to as siddhis (extraordinary powers), or some esoteric powers?

Acharya Prashant (AP): All forms of the Truth are divine. It’s just that we are not able to perceive the divinity in all forms. It is not so much about a particular form of Krishna being divine; it is actually about Arjuna’s inability to recognize divinity in the form of Krishna that he is habituated to.
