TRANSLATION
As soon as Lord Visnu was visible, all the demigods—Lord Brahma and Lord Siva, the Gandharvas and all present there—immediately offered their respectful obeisances by falling down straight before Him.
PURPORT
It appears that Lord Visnu is the Supreme Lord even of Lord Siva and Lord Brahma, what to speak of the demigods, Gandharvas and ordinary living entities. It is stated in a prayer, yam brahma varunendra-rudra-marutah: all the demigods worship Lord Visnu. Similarly, dhyanavasthita-tad-gatena manasa pasyanti yam yoginah: [SB 12.13.1] yogis concentrate their minds on the form of Lord Visnu. Thus Lord Visnu is worshipable by all demigods, all Gandharvas and even Lord Siva and Lord Brahma. Tad visnoh paramam padam sada pasyanti surayah: Visnu is therefore the Supreme Personality of Godhead. Even though Lord Siva was previously referred to in prayers by Lord Brahma as the Supreme, when Lord Visnu appeared, Siva also fell prostrated before Him to offer respectful obeisances.
