nato ’smy anantaya duranta-saktaye
visvasya sarga-sthiti-samyaman gunaih
sva-lilaya sandadhate ’vyayatmane
sri-brahma uvaca—Lord Brahma said; natah—bowed down; asmi—I am; anantaya—unto the unlimited Lord; duranta—very difficult to find an end to; saktaye—who possesses different potencies; vicitra-viryaya—having varieties of prowess; pavitra-karmane—whose actions have no reaction (even though doing contrary things, He remains without contamination by the material modes); visvasya—of the universe; sarga—creation; sthiti—maintenance; samyaman—and annihilation; gunaih—by the material qualities; sva-lilaya—very easily; sandadhate—performs; avyaya-atmane—whose personality never deteriorates.
Lord Brahma prayed: My Lord, You are unlimited, and You possess unending potencies. No one can estimate or calculate Your prowess and wonderful influence, for Your actions are never polluted by the material energy. Through the material qualities, You very easily create the universe, maintain it and again annihilate it, yet You remain the same, without deterioration. I therefore offer my respectful obeisances unto You.
The activities of the Lord are always wonderful. His personal servants Jaya and Vijaya were confidential friends, yet they were cursed, and they accepted bodies of demons. Again, in the family of one such demon, Prahlada Maharaja was caused to take birth to exhibit the behavior of an exalted devotee, and then the Lord accepted the body of Nrsimhadeva to kill that same demon, who by the Lord’s own will had taken birth in a demoniac family. Therefore, who can understand the Lord’s transcendental activities? Not to speak of understanding the transcendental activities of the Lord, no one can understand even the activities of His servants. In Caitanya-caritamrta (Madhya 23.39) it is said, tanra vakya, kriya, mudra vijneha na bhujhaya: no one can understand the activities of the Lord’s servants. Therefore, what to speak of the activities of the Lord? Who can understand how Krsna is benefiting the entire world? The Lord is addressed as duranta-sakti because no one can understand His potencies and how He acts.
