TEXT 250

prathamei kare kṛṣṇa ‘puruṣāvatāra’
seita puruṣa haya trividha prakāra


prathamei—in the beginning; kare—does; kṛṣṇa—Lord Kṛṣṇa; puruṣa-avatāra—the incarnation of the three Viṣṇus (Mahā-Viṣṇu, Garbhodakaśāyī Viṣṇu and Kṣīrodakaśāyī Viṣṇu); seita—that; puruṣa—Viṣṇu; haya—becomes; tri-vidha prakāra—three different manifestations.


“In the beginning, Kṛṣṇa incarnates Himself as the puruṣa-avatāras, or Viṣṇu incarnations. These are of three types.


Up to this verse, the many types of expansions have been described. Now the manifestations of the Lord’s different potencies will be described.
