CC Madhya 18.114
- hlādinyā saṁvid-āśliṣṭaḥ
- sac-cid-ānanda īśvaraḥ
- svāvidyā-saṁvṛto jīvaḥ
hlādinyā—by the hlādinī potency; saṁvit—by the saṁvit potency; āśliṣṭaḥ—surrounded; sat-cit-ānandaḥ—always transcendentally blissful; īśvaraḥ—the supreme controller; sva—own; avidyā—by ignorance; saṁvṛtaḥ—surrounded; jīvaḥ—the living entity; saṅkleśa—of the threefold miseries; nikara—of the multitude; ākaraḥ—the mine.
“‘The Supreme Personality of Godhead, the supreme controller, is always full of transcendental bliss and is accompanied by the potencies known as hlādinī and saṁvit. The conditioned soul, however, is always covered by ignorance and embarrassed by the threefold miseries of life. Thus he is a treasure-house of all kinds of tribulations.’
