Commentary called Jnaneshwari by Jnaneshwar:

Oh God, thou art indeed the Supreme Brahman, the haven of rest, where-unto return these primeval great elements of the world, and, Oh Lord of the world, Thou art the holiest of holies. Thou art the Supreme Deity of the triad (God Brahmadeva, Vishnu, and Mahesh). Thou art Thyself the Supreme Soul absolute, eternally standing behind the veil of Prakriti. Now, have I seen the truth that thou art the Master of the Universe, uncreate and self-existent, whom birth and decay touch not. Clearly indeed has the vision gleamed on my mind that Thou art the great Being that pulls the strings of past, present and future time, the guardian spirit of all that throbs with life, and of the entire sphere of the Universe.
