CC Madhya 20.259
Śrī Caitanya-caritāmṛta - Madhya-līlā - Chapter 20: Lord Śrī Caitanya Mahāprabhu Instructs Sanātana Gosvāmī in the Science of the Absolute Truth
- māyā-dvāre sṛje teṅho brahmāṇḍera gaṇa
- jaḍa-rūpā prakṛti nahe brahmāṇḍa-kāraṇa
māyā-dvāre—by the agency of the external energy; sṛje—creates; teṅho—Lord Saṅkarṣaṇa; brahmāṇḍera gaṇa—all the groups of universes; jaḍa-rūpā—appearing dull; prakṛti—the material energy; nahe—is not; brahmāṇḍa-kāraṇa—the cause of the cosmic manifestation.
“By the agency of the material energy, this same Lord Saṅkarṣaṇa creates all the universes. The dull material energy—known in modern language as nature—is not the cause of the material universe.
