From Vanisource

His Divine Grace A.C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupada



TEXT 51

sa eṣa bhagavān rājan
vyatanod vihataṁ yaśaḥ
purā rudrasya devasya
mayenānanta-māyinā


SYNONYMS

saḥ eṣaḥ bhagavān—the same Personality of Godhead, Kṛṣṇa, who is Parabrahman; rājan—my dear King; vyatanot—expanded; vihatam—lost; yaśaḥ—reputation; purā—formerly in history; rudrasya—of Lord Śiva (the most powerful among the demigods); devasya—the demigod; mayena—by a demon named Maya; ananta—unlimited; māyinā—possessing technical knowledge.


TRANSLATION

My dear King Yudhiṣṭhira, long, long ago in history, a demon known as Maya Dānava, who was very expert in technical knowledge, reduced the reputation of Lord Śiva. In that situation, Kṛṣṇa, the Supreme Personality of Godhead, saved Lord Śiva.


PURPORT

Lord Śiva is known as Mahādeva, the most exalted demigod. Thus Viśvanātha Cakravartī Ṭhākura says that although Lord Brahmā did not know the glories of the Supreme Personality of Godhead, Lord Śiva could have known them. This historical incident proves that Lord Śiva derives power from Lord Kṛṣṇa, the Parabrahman.
