jagat-karana nahe prakrti jada-rupa
sakti sancariya tare krsna kare krpa
jagat—of the material world; karana—the cause; nahe—cannot be; prakrti—the material nature; jada-rupa—dull, without action; sakti—energy; sancariya—infusing; tare—unto the dull material nature; krsna—Lord Krsna; kare—shows; krpa—mercy.
Because prakrti is dull and inert, it cannot actually be the cause of the material world. But Lord Krsna shows His mercy by infusing His energy into the dull, inert material nature.
