yasminn idam yatas cedam
tisthaty apyeti jayate
mrnmayesv iva mrj-jatis
tasmai te brahmane namah
yasmin—in whom; idam—this (cosmic manifestation); yatah—from whom; ca—also; idam—this (cosmic manifestation); tisthati—stands; apyeti—dissolves; jayate—is born; mrt-mayesu—in things made of earth; iva—like; mrt-jatih—birth from earth; tasmai—unto Him; te—You; brahmane—the supreme cause; namah—respectful obeisances.
As pots made completely of earth are situated on earth after being created and are transformed into earth again when broken, this cosmic manifestation is caused by the Supreme Brahman, situated in the Supreme Brahman, and annihilated in the same Supreme Brahman. Therefore, since the Supreme Lord is the cause of Brahman, let us offer Him our respectful obeisances.
The Supreme Lord is the cause of the cosmic manifestation, He maintains it after creation, and after annihilation the Lord is the reservoir of everything.
