The foolish think of Me, the Unmanifest, as having manifestation, not knowing My higher, immutable, and most excellent nature.
7.24 अव्यक्तम् the unmanifested? व्यक्तिम् to manifestation? आपन्नम् come to? मन्यन्ते think? माम् Me? अबुद्धयः the foolish? परम् the highest? भावम् nature? अजानन्तः not knowing? मम My? अव्ययम् immutable? अनुत्तमम् most excellent.Commentary The ignorant take Lord Krishna as a common mortal. They think that He has taken a body like ordinary human beings from the unmanifested state on account of the
force of Karma of the previous birth. They have no knowledge of His higher? imperishable and selfluminous nature as the Highest Self. They think that He has just now come into manifestation? though He is selfexistent? eternal? beginningless? endless? birthless? deathless? changeless? infinite and unmanifest.
