SYNONYMS
tasmin—Him; brahmaṇi—the Supreme Brahman; advitīye—without a second; kevale—being one; parama-ātmani—the Supersoul; brahma-rudrau—both Brahmā and Śiva; ca—and; bhūtāni—the living entities; bhedena—with separation; ajñaḥ—one who is not properly conversant; anupaśyati—thinks.
TRANSLATION
The Lord continued: One who is not in proper knowledge thinks that demigods like Brahmā and Śiva are independent, or he even thinks that the living entities are independent.
PURPORT
The living entities, including Brahmā, are not independently separated, but are counted within the marginal potency of the Supreme Lord. The Supreme Lord, being the Supersoul in every living entity, including Lord Brahmā and Lord Śiva, is directing everyone in the activities of the material modes of nature. No one can act independently of the sanction of the Lord, and therefore, indirectly, no one is different from the Supreme Person—certainly not Brahmā and Rudra, who are incarnations of the material nature’s modes of passion and ignorance.
