srir vaksasah pitaras chayayasan
dharmah stanad itarah prsthato ’bhut
dyaur yasya sirsno ’psaraso viharat
prasidatam nah sa maha-vibhutih
srih—the goddess of fortune; vaksasah—from His chest; pitarah—the inhabitants of Pitrloka; chayaya—from His shadow; asan—became possible; dharmah—the principle of religion; stanat—from His bosom; itarah—irreligion (the opposite of dharma); prsthatah—from the back; abhut—became possible; dyauh—the heavenly planets; yasya—of whom; sirsnah—from the top of the head; apsarasah—the inhabitants of Apsaroloka; viharat—by His sense enjoyment; prasidatam—kindly be pleased; nah—upon us; sah—He (the Supreme Personality of Godhead); maha-vibhutih—the greatest in all prowess.
The goddess of fortune was generated from His chest, the inhabitants of Pitrloka from His shadow, religion from His bosom, and irreligion [the opposite of religion] from His back. The heavenly planets were generated from the top of His head, and the Apsaras from His sense enjoyment. May that supremely powerful Personality of Godhead be pleased with us.
