O Soul of all that be, the creation, maintenance and destruction of the universe are all carried out by a fraction of an expansion of an expansion of Your expansion. Today I have come to take shelter of You, the Supreme Lord.




Srila Sridhara Svami explains this verse as follows: The Lord of Vaikuntha, Narayana, is but one expansion of Sri Krishna. Maha-Vishnu, the first creator, is Lord Narayana's expansion. The total material energy emanates from Maha-Vishnu's glance, and of that total material energy the three modes of nature are divided portions. Thus it is Sri Krishna, acting through His expansions, who generates, sustains and dissolves the universe.

That amazes me, I thought Maha-Vishnu is expansion of Lord Krishna The Orginal Personality of Godhead. Is that right I'm not sure if I read the above right.

So one of the expansions of Bhagavän is Mahä-Viñëu. Yasya kalä-viçeño viñëur mahän sa iha yasya kalä-viçeñaù. Kalä-viçeñaù means... Kalä means part of the expansion, not direct expansion, but part of the expansion. That is called kalä. Amsa-kalä. Amsa means direct expansion, and kalä means expansion of the amsa. So the Mahä-Viñëu is described as kalä-visesah, an expansion of the amsa, secondary.




Brahmä and other lords of the mundane worlds, appearing from the pores of hair of Mahä-Visnu, remain alive as long as the duration of one exhalation of the latter [Mahä-Viñëu]. I adore the primeval Lord Govinda of whose subjective personality Mahä-Visnu is the portion of portion


Brahma Samhita 5.48
