CC Madhya 21.56
- tri-pād-vibhūter dhāmatvāt
- tri-pād-bhūtaṁ hi tat padam
- vibhūtir māyikī sarvā
- proktā pādātmikā yataḥ
tri-pāt-vibhūteḥ—of the three fourths of the energy; dhāmatvāt—because of being the abode; tri-pāt-bhūtam—consisting of three fourths of the energy; hi—certainly; tat padam—that abode; vibhūtiḥ—the energy or potency; māyikī—material; sarvā—all; proktā—said; pāda-ātmikā—only one fourth; yataḥ—therefore.
“‘Because it consists of three fourths of the Lord’s energy, the spiritual world is called tri-pād-bhūta. Being a manifestation of one fourth of the Lord’s energy, the material world is called eka-pāda.’
