SB 6.18.61

From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada


labdhvā tad-antaraṁ śakro
diteḥ praviṣṭa udaraṁ
yogeśo yoga-māyayā


labdhvā—finding; tat-antaram—after that; śakraḥ—Indra; nidrā—by sleep; apahṛta-cetasaḥ—unconscious; diteḥ—of Diti; praviṣṭaḥ—entered; udaram—the womb; yoga-īśaḥ—the master of yoga; yoga—of yogic perfections; māyayā—by the power.


Finding this fault, Indra, who has all the mystic powers [the yoga-siddhis such as aṇimā and laghimā], entered Diti's womb while she was unconscious, being fast asleep.


A perfectly successful yogī is expert in eight kinds of perfection. By one of them, called aṇimā-siddhi, he can become smaller than an atom, and in that state he can enter anywhere. With this yogic power, Indra entered the womb of Diti while she was pregnant.
