yatha sasarja bhutani
retasa manasa caiva
tan mamavahitah srnu
yatha—as; sasarja—created; bhutani—the living entities; daksah—Daksa; duhitr-vatsalah—who is very affectionate to his daughters; retasa—by semen; manasa—by the mind; ca—also; eva—indeed; tat—that; mama—from me; avahitah—being attentive; srnu—please hear.
Sukadeva Gosvami continued: Please hear from me with great attention how Prajapati Daksa, who was very affectionate to his daughters, created different types of living entities through his semen and through his mind.
The word duhitr-vatsalah indicates that all the prajas were born from Daksa’s daughters. Srila Visvanatha Cakravarti Thakura says that apparently Daksa had no son.
