His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


dṛṣṭo 'ṅguṣṭha-śiro-mātraḥ
kṣaṇād gaṇḍa-śilā-samaḥ
api svid bhagavān eṣa
yajño me khedayan manaḥ


dṛṣṭaḥ—just seen; aṅguṣṭha—thumb; śiraḥ—tip; mātraḥ—only; kṣaṇāt—immediately; gaṇḍa-śilā—large stone; samaḥ—like; api svit—whether; bhagavān—the Personality of Godhead; eṣaḥ—this; yajñaḥ—Viṣṇu; me—my; khedayan—perturbing; manaḥ—mind.


First of all this boar was seen no bigger than the tip of a thumb, and within a moment He was as large as a stone. My mind is perturbed. Is He the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Viṣṇu?


Since Brahmā is the supermost person in the universe and he had never before experienced such a form, he could guess that the wonderful appearance of the boar was an incarnation of Viṣṇu. The uncommon features symptomatic of the incarnation of Godhead can bewilder even the mind of Brahmā.
