Translation of Bhagavad Gita 11.6

O best of the Bharatas, see here the different manifestations of Adityas, Vasus, Rudras, Asvini-kumaras and all the other demigods. Behold the many wonderful things which no one has ever seen or heard of before.

Commentary by Sri A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada of Gaudiya Sampradaya:

Even though Arjuna was a personal friend of Krishna and the most advanced of learned men, it was still not possible for him to know everything about Krishna. Here it is stated that humans have neither heard nor known of all these forms and manifestations. Now Krishna reveals these wonderful forms.

Commentary by Sri Vishvanatha Chakravarthi Thakur of Gaudiya Sampradaya:

Commentary by Sri Ramanuja of Sri Sampradaya:

11.6 Behold in My single form (i.e., the many forms in the one form revealed to Arjuna), the twelve Adityas, eight Vasus, eleven Rudras, the two Asvins and forty-nine Maruts. This is just illustrative. Behold all those things directly perceived in this world and those described in the Sastras, and also many marvels, not seen before in all the worlds and in all the Sastras.

Commentary by Sri Sridhara Swami of Rudra Sampradaya:

Some of these diverse and divine expansions being manifested within the visvarupa or divine universal form are enumerated here by Lord Krishna. Phenomenal forms of wonder and marvel that were never before seen anywhere in the universe by anyone.

Lord Krishna states pasya or behold enumerating a few of His vibhutis that have been described previously such as the Adityas, Rudras, etc. and all the demigods also which are able to be perceived within His visvarupa or divine universal form. Besides these there are other unlimited forms of marvel and wonder that have never before been seen by anyone.

11.6 Pasya, see; adityan, the twelve Adityas; vasun, the eight Vasus; rudran, the eleven Rudras; asvinau, the two Asvins; and amarutah, the Maruts, who are divided into seven groups of seven each.
