|Canto 10: The Summum Bonum||Chapter 14: Brahmā's Prayers to Lord Kṛṣṇa|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.14.54
tasmāt priyatamaḥ svātmā
sarveṣām api dehinām
tad-artham eva sakalaḿ
jagad etac carācaram
tasmāt — therefore; priya-tamaḥ — most dear; sva-ātmā — one's own self; sarveṣām — for all; api — indeed; dehinām — embodied living beings; tat-artham — for the sake of it; eva — certainly; sakalam — all; jagat — the created universe; etat — this; cara-acaram — with its moving and nonmoving entities.
Therefore it is his own self that is most dear to every embodied living being, and it is simply for the satisfaction of this self that the whole material creation of moving and nonmoving entities exists.
The word carācaram indicates moving living entities, such as animals, and nonmoving living entities, such as trees. Or the word may also refer to moving possessions, such as one's family and pets, and nonmoving possessions, such as one's house and household paraphernalia.
