Arjuna said :
Later on was Thy birth, and prior to it was the birth of Vivasvan (the Sun);
how am I to understand that you taught this Yoga in the beginning?
: your birth took place later in the house of Vasudeva;
Vivasvan or Vivasvat (the sun) was born earlier in the beginning of evolution.
How am I to believe that you taught this Yoga in the beginning to Vivasvan,
and that you, the self-same person, has now taught it to me?
I am not able to reconcile this. Be kind enough to enlighten me, O my Lord!
