TEXT 106
parama-tattva, para-brahma, parama-isvara
dekhi' prabhura murti sarva-jna ha-ila phanphara
parama-tattvathe Supreme Truth; para-brahmathe Supreme Brahman; parama-isvarathe Supreme Lord; dekhi'-seeing; prabhuraof the Lord; murtiform; sarva-jnathe all-knowing astrologer; ha-ilabecame; phanpharaconfused.
Seeing Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu to be the same Absolute Truth, the Supreme Brahman, the Personality of Godhead, the astrologer was confused.
Herein it is clearly indicated that the Absolute Truth, the Supreme Brahman, is, in the ultimate issue, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Therefore a person is the beginning of all things. As confirmed in the Bhagavad-gita (10.8), mattah sarvam pravartate: everything begins from the Supreme Personality of Godhead. The Supreme Lord is the supreme living entity. Therefore whatever exists, whether matter or spirit, is all but an emanation from the Supreme Person, or supreme life. The modern scientists' theory that life begins from matter is nonsense. Both matter and life begin from life. Unfortunately the scientists do not know this scientific fact; they are drifting in the darkness of their so-called knowledge.
