Bhagavad-gita As It Is Lectures

He knows everything, even within your heart, what you're thinking, what you are planning. It cannot be concealed to Kṛṣṇa. This is our foolishness, that we are doing something, concealing. You can conceal my eyes, other friend's eyes, but you cannot conceal the eyes of Kṛṣṇa. He is upadraṣṭānumantā (BG 13.23). That is explained in Bhagavad-gītā. Upadraṣṭā: He is seeing always what you are doing. You cannot play tricks with Kṛṣṇa; that is not possible.

īśvaraḥ sarva-bhūtānāṁ
hṛd-deśe 'rjuna tiṣṭhati
(BG 18.61)

So those who are anxious to become Kṛṣṇa conscious, sincere devotee of Kṛṣṇa, they should not try to play tricks. Kṛṣṇa will know everything. So Kṛṣṇa is abhijñaḥ; Kṛṣṇa is situated everywhere. He has no past, present, future (indistinct Sanskrit).

So Kṛṣṇa (Arjuna) is questioning this simply to clarify Kṛṣṇa's position. This is happening. (aside: read that purport) (break) ...a devotee, that he believes Kṛṣṇa:

sarvam etad ṛtaṁ manye
yan māṁ vadasi keśava
(BG 10.14)

Arjuna said. Just like modern scholars, they cut some portion, "Oh, this is not fact; this is some imagination." The devotee does not do that—ardha-kukkuṭī-nyāya (CC Adi 5.176). Ardha-kukkuṭī-nyāya—to accept some portion and reject other portion—this is not the business of the devotee. A devotee accepts each and every word of Kṛṣṇa. That is devotee. Not that..., not only Kṛṣṇa or Kṛṣṇa's devotee who is in the paramparā system. So devotee means who accepts everything in toto, either spoken by Kṛṣṇa or by His devotee. That is sarvam etad ṛtaṁ. Arjuna said this: "I accept whatever You have said."

paraṁ brahma paraṁ dhāma
pavitraṁ paramaṁ bhavān
(BG 10.12)

So if you simply follow these footsteps of Arjuna, that is paramparā. Don't... Why do we interpret Bhagavad-gītā otherwise? Kṛṣṇa says,

evaṁ paramparā-prāptam
imaṁ rājarṣayo viduḥ
(BG 4.2)
