Vanisource - the complete essence of Vedic knowledge

CC Adi 5.81

From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


sṛṣṭy-ādi-nimitte yei aṁśera avadhāna
sei ta’ aṁśere kahi ‘avatāra’ nāma


sṛṣṭi-ādi-nimitte—for the cause of creation, maintenance and annihilation; yei—which; aṁśera avadhāna—manifestation of the part; sei ta’—that certainly; aṁśere kahi—I speak about that plenary expansion; avatāra nāma—by the name “incarnation.”


That fragment of the Supreme Lord, known as the Mahā-puruṣa, appears for the purpose of creation, maintenance and annihilation and is called an incarnation.
