mrityuh sarva-haras caham
udbhavas ca bhavisyatam
kirtih srir vak ca narinam
smritir medha dhrtih ksama

"I am all-devouring death, and I am the generating principle of all that is yet to be. Among women I am fame, fortune, fine speech, memory, intelligence, steadfastness and patience."

The Lord mentions some more groups. Sarva- hara = among all bereavers [compulsorily taking away], mrityu = god of death. There are so many in this world who rob others' possessions. The Lord is Mrithyu or god of death among them. Bhavisyatam = among those to occur in future, udbhavas = active energy. That is the Lord is the action in those which are to develop or to happen. Narinam = among females, the Lord is, kirti = fame, sri = wealth, vak = speech, smriti = memory, medha = intelligence, dhriti = courage and ksama = patience. The Lord represents all these women characters like Kirti Devi, Sri Devi, Vak Devi, Smriti Devi, Medha Devi, Dhriti Devi and Kshama Devi. Why should these qualities attributed to women? Are not males with these qualities? Yes, both have these qualities. The Lord is not telling that He is the quality of fame, etc., in people. But each of these qualities are represented by a Devta or demi- goddess. Here we should note that the Lord mentions Three of His Consorts. Kirti Devi implies Sri Neela Devi. Ksama Devi implies Sri Bhu Devi. Of course, Sri Sri Devi is mentioned as such. In Srimad Ramayanam, Dasaratha had Three queens. While mentioning them the sloka in Ramayana says they were like Sri:, Hri: and Kirti:. This is in the same order as Sri Sri Devi, Sri Bhu Devi and Sri Neela Devi. Therefore, Kirti indicates Neela Devi. Why the order of mentioning has changed in the Gita sloka? Should it not be starting with Sri? In Sri Krishna Avatar, Sri Sri Devi was born as Sri Rukmini; Sri Bhu Devi as Sri Sathyabama; and, Sri Neela Devi as Sri Nappinnai. In Sri Krishna Avatar, Sri Nappinnai is considered important. In Thiruppavai, Her name is mentioned many times. Perhaps, that might be the reason for mentioning Kirti first. Earlier He had mentioned Yama, who judges on what punishment or honour to be conferred on the departed soul, and god of Kala, who decides on the duration of life for a soul to reside in a body. Now, Mrithyu is mentioned and who extracts life from the body.
