srsty-adi-nimitte yei amsera avadhana
sei ta' amsere kahi 'avatara' nama
srsti-adi-nimitte—for the cause of creation, maintenance and annihilation; yei—which; amsera avadhana—manifestation of the part; sei ta'-that certainly; amsere kahi—I speak about that plenary expansion; avatara nama—by the name "incarnation."
That fragment of the Maha-purusa who appears for the purpose of creation, maintenance and annihilation is called an incarnation.
