"Everything in the cosmic manifestation emanates from the Absolute Truth. It remains in the Absolute Truth, and after annihilation it again enters the Absolute Truth.
PURPORT
In the Taittiriya Upanisad (3.1) it is said, yato va imani bhutani jayante: "The entire material cosmic manifestation is born of the Supreme Brahman." Also, the Brahma-sutra begins with the verse janmady asya yatah: "The Absolute Truth is that from whom everything emanates." (Brahma-sutra 1.1.2) That Absolute Truth is Krsna. In the Bhagavad-gita (10.8), Krsna says, aham sarvasya prabhavo mattah sarvam pravartate: "I am the source of all spiritual and material worlds. Everything emanates from Me." Therefore Krsna is the original Absolute Truth, the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Again, Krsna states in the Bhagavad-gita (9.4), maya tatam idam sarvam jagad avyakta-murtina: "By Me, in My unmanifested form, this entire universe is pervaded." And as confirmed in the Brahma-samhita (5.37), goloka eva nivasaty akhilatma-bhutah: "Although the Lord always stays in His abode, Goloka Vrndavana, He is still all-pervading." His all-pervasive feature is understood to be impersonal because one does not find the form of the Lord in that all-pervasiveness. Actually, everything is resting on the rays of His bodily effulgence. The Brahma-samhita (5.40) also states:
yasya prabha prabhavato jagad-anda-koti-
kotisv asesa-vasudhadi-vibhuti-bhinnam
"Due to the rays of the Lord's bodily effulgence, millions of universes are created, just as planets are created from the sun."
