Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.47.30
sṛje hanmy anupālaye
ātmani — within Myself; eva — indeed; ātmanā — by Myself; ātmānam — Myself; sṛje — I create; hanmi — I destroy; anupālaye — I sustain; ātma — My own; māyā — of the mystic potency; anubhāvena — by the power; bhūta — the material elements; indriya — the senses; guṇa — and the modes of nature; ātmanā — comprising.
By Myself I create, sustain and withdraw Myself within Myself by the power of My personal energy, which comprises the material elements, the senses and the modes of nature.
Although the Lord is the supreme entity, there is no absolute duality between Him and His creation, since the creation is an extension of His being. This oneness is here emphasized by the Lord.
