Krishna Reveals Himself to Arjuna

Still sitting in the chariot, Krishna (the avatar of Vishnu) reveals his true self to Arjuna (the reluctant warrior).

Arjuna is astounded by what he sees as he begins to understand his charioteer is far more than what he'd thought.

The scene is based on Chapter 11 of the Bhagavad-Gita, a Hindu Scripture.
