So "the true yogi observes Me in all beings. And also sees every being in Me." How, "in Me"? Because everything what you see, that is Kṛṣṇa. You are sitting on this floor so you are sitting on Kṛṣṇa. You are sitting on this carpet, you are sitting on Kṛṣṇa. You should know it. How this carpet is Kṛṣṇa? Because carpet is made of Kṛṣṇa's energy. There are different kinds of - parāsya śaktir vividhaiva śrūyate (CC Madhya 13.65, purport). The Supreme Lord has various energies. Out of those various energies, three divisions are primary. Material energy, spiritual energy and marginal energy. We living entities we are marginal energy. The whole material world is material energy. And there is spiritual energy. The spiritual world. And we are marginal. So we are sitting either in the material energy… Marginal means this way or that way. You can become spiritual or you become material. No third alternative. Either you become materialistic or become spiritualistic. So, so long we are in the material world, you are sitting on the material energy, therefore you are sitting in Kṛṣṇa. Because energy is not separated from Kṛṣṇa. Just like this light, this flame, there is heat and there is illumination. The two energies. The heat is not separated from the fire and the illumination is not separated from the fire. Therefore in one sense the heat is also fire, the illumination is also fire. Similarly this material energy is also Kṛṣṇa. So we are thinking that we are sitting on this floor but actually we are sitting in Kṛṣṇa. This is philosophy. So, "…and also sees every being in Me. Indeed, the self-realized man sees Me everywhere." That is seeing everywhere. To see every being, everything in relationship with Kṛṣṇa, that means you see Kṛṣṇa everywhere. As it is taught in the Bhagavad-gītā, raso 'ham apsu kaunteya (BG 7.8): "I am the taste of water." Why water is drunk by all living entities? The animals, the birds, the beasts, the man, human being, everyone drinks water. Therefore water is needed so much. And Kṛṣṇa has stocked water so much. You see? Water is needed, so much. For agriculture, for washing, for drinking. So if one does not get a glass of water in due time he dies. That experience, one who has got in the war field... How much valuable is water they can understand. In fighting when they become thirsty and there is no water, they die. So why water is so valuable? Because there is nice taste. You are so much thirsty you drink one sip of water, "Oh, thank God." So Kṛṣṇa says, "That taste I am. That life-giving taste of water, I am." Kṛṣṇa says. So if you have learned this philosophy, whenever you drink water you see Kṛṣṇa. And when do you not drink water? This is Kṛṣṇa consciousness. Raso 'ham apsu kaunteya prabhāsmi śaśi-sūryayoḥ. "I am the light of the sun and the moon." So either in the night or in daytime, you have to see either sunlight or moonlight. So how can you forget Kṛṣṇa? Either you drink water, or see the sunlight, or see the moonlight, or hear some sound… Śabdo ‘ham (SB 11.16.34). There are so many things, you have read it in the fourth chapter, how Kṛṣṇa is all-pervading. So one has to see Kṛṣṇa in that way. Then you'll get perfection of yoga. Here it is stated: "A true yogi observes Me in all beings and also sees every being in Me. Indeed, the self-realized man sees Me everywhere."
