|Canto 8: Withdrawal of the Cosmic Creations||Chapter 21: Bali Mahārāja Arrested by the Lord|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 8.21.21
yo no bhavāya prāg āsīd
sa eva bhagavān adya
yaḥ — the time factor, which represents the Supreme Personality of Godhead; naḥ — of us; bhavāya — for the improvement; prāk — formerly; āsīt — was situated; abhavāya — for the defeat; diva-okasām — of the demigods; saḥ — that time factor; eva — indeed; bhagavān — the representative of the Supreme Person; adya — today; vartate — is existing; tat-viparyayam — just the opposite of our favor.
The supreme time factor, which represents the Supreme Person, was previously in our favor and not in favor of the demigods, but now that same time factor is against us.
