CC Adi 5.64
- kṛṣṇa—kartā, māyā tāṅra karena sahāya
- ghaṭera kāraṇa—cakra-daṇḍādi upāya
kṛṣṇa—Lord Kṛṣṇa; kartā—the creator; māyā—material energy; tāṅra—His; karena—does; sahāya—assistance; ghaṭera kāraṇa—the cause of the earthen pot; cakra-daṇḍa-ādi—the wheel, the rod, and so on; upāya—instruments.
Lord Kṛṣṇa is the creator, and māyā only helps Him as an instrument, just like the potter’s wheel and other instruments, which are the instrumental causes of a pot.
