TEXT 303
garbhodakasayi-dvara sakti sancari'
vyasti srsti kare krsna brahma-rupa dhari'
garbha-udaka-sayi-dvara—by Lord Garbhodakasayi Visnu; sakti sancari'-giving him special powers; vyasti—total; srsti—creation; kare—does; krsna—Lord Krsna; brahma-rupa dhari'-accepting the form of Lord Brahma.
"Such a devotee is empowered by Garbhodakasayi Visnu. In this way, an incarnation of Krsna in the form of Brahma engineers the total creation of the universe.
The Garbhodakasayi Visnu purusa-avatara expansion of Lord Visnu accepts the material modes-sattva-guna, rajo-guna and tamo-guna-and thus incarnates as Lord Visnu, Brahma and Siva. These are incarnations of the material qualities. Among the many superior living entities qualified with pious activities and devotional service, one, called Lord Brahma, is infused with the quality of passion by the supreme will of Garbhodakasayi Visnu. Thus Lord Brahma becomes the incarnation of the creative energy of the Lord.
