Gurudev, Lord Krishna revealed His Vishwaroopa form (the Supreme Universal form of the Lord) to Arjuna. When will you reveal your Vishwaroopa form and to whom?

Sri Sri Ravi Shankar:

See, the entire creation is the form of the Lord. This is what Vishwaroopa Darshan means. It means seeing the one Lord in everything around you, whether it is the rivers, the mountains, stones, people, or animals.

God is love. You must acquire this special vision first, only then will you be able to behold the Universal form of the Lord.

The narrow vision with which you perceive the world will not help. It is because you keep thinking, ‘Oh this person is like this, and that person is like that’. You cannot perceive the Universal form of the Lord when you vision is so clouded with cravings and aversions. First you must acquire this broad, all-encompassing vision of love, which I am anyway giving to you. Once you have this, you will automatically be able to see the Vishwaroopa form of the Lord.
