nato ’smy aham tvakhila-hetu-hetum
narayanam purusam adyam avyayam
brahmavirasid yata esa lokah
Sri Akrura said: I bow down to You, the cause of all causes, the original and inexhaustible Supreme Person, Narayana. From the whorl of the lotus born from Your navel, Brahma appeared, and by his agency this universe has come into being.
bhus toyam agnih pavanam kham adir
mahan ajadir mana indriyani
sarvendriyartha vibudhas ca sarve
ye hetavas te jagato ’nga-bhutah
Earth; water; fire; air; ether and its source, false ego; the mahat-tattva; the total material nature and her source, the Supreme Lord’s purusa expansion; the mind; the senses; the sense objects; and the senses’ presiding deities — all these causes of the cosmic manifestation are born from Your transcendental body.
naite svarupam vidur atmanas te
hy ajadayo ’natmataya grhitah
ajo ’nubaddhah sa gunair ajaya
gunat param veda na te svarupam
The total material nature and these other elements of creation certainly cannot know You as You are, for they are manifested in the realm of dull matter. Since You are beyond the modes of nature, even Lord Brahma, who is bound up in these modes, does not know Your true identity.
God is transcendental to material nature. Unless we also transcend the limited consciousness of material existence, we cannot know Him. Even the greatest living entity in the universe, Brahma, cannot understand the Supreme unless he comes to the platform of pure Krsna consciousness.
