sadhyan ganan pitr-ganan
urjah-vantam—full of energy; manyamanah—recognizing; atmanam—himself; bhagavan—the most worshipful; ajah—Brahma; sadhyan—the demigods; ganan—hosts; pitr-ganan—and the Pitas; paroksena—from his invisible form; asrjat—created; prabhuh—the lord of beings.
Recognizing himself to be full of desire and energy, the worshipful Brahma, the creator of the living entities, evolved from his own invisible form, from his navel, the hosts of Sadhyas and Pitas.
The Sadhyas and Pitas are invisible forms of departed souls, and they are also created by Brahma.
