6.“See in me, O Bharat, the sons of Aditi,
the Rudr, theVasu,
the Ashwin brothers,
and the Marut,
as well asnumerous other marvellous forms that have not been seenbefore.”7.‘Now, O Gudakesh, see in my body at this one place thewhole animate and inanimate world, and whatever elseyou desire to know.”
Thus the Lord continues to manifest his form through threeconsecutive verses, but the poor Arjun cannot see anything. Hecan only rub his eyes in bewilderment. Krishn notices Arjun’spredicament, stops abruptly, and says:
8.“But since you cannot see me with your physical eyes, Igrant you divine vision with which you may behold mymagnificence and the might of my yog.’’
Arjun is blessed with spiritual vision by Krishn’s grace. And, inan exactly similar fashion, Sanjay, the charioteer of Dhritrashtr, isalso blessed with divine sight by Yogeshwar Vyas’ compassion.
Therefore, what is visible to Arjun is also seen in precisely thesame form by Sanjay, and by virtue of sharing the vision he alsoshares the good that accrues from it.

Chapter I, in which Sanjay, the epitome of self-control, is represented asthe medium through which the blind Dhritrashtr sees and hears. The mindenveloped by the pall of ignorance perceives through one who has masteredthe mind and the senses.
