CC Madhya 20.249
- avatārā hy asaṅkhyeyā
- hareḥ sattva-nidher dvijāḥ
- yathā ’vidāsinaḥ kulyāḥ
- sarasaḥ syuḥ sahasraśaḥ
avatārāḥ—all the incarnations; hi—certainly; asaṅkhyeyāḥ—beyond counting; hareḥ—from the Supreme Personality of Godhead; sattva-nidheḥ—who is the reservoir of spiritual energy; dvijāḥ—O brāhmaṇas; yathā—as; avidāsinaḥ—containing a great reservoir of water; kulyāḥ—small rivulets; sarasaḥ—from a lake; syuḥ—must be; sahasraśaḥ—by hundreds and thousands of times.
“‘O learned brāhmaṇas, just as hundreds and thousands of small rivulets issue from great reservoirs of water, innumerable incarnations flow from Śrī Hari, the Supreme Personality of Godhead and the reservoir of all power.’
This verse is quoted from Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam (SB 1.3.26).
