Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.74.20-21
yad-ātmakam idaḿ viśvaḿ
kratavaś ca yad-ātmakāḥ
agnir āhutayo mantrā
sāńkhyaḿ yogaś ca yat-paraḥ
eka evādvitīyo 'sāv
aitad-ātmyam idaḿ jagat
sṛjaty avati hanty ajaḥ
yat-ātmakam — founded upon whom; idam — this; viśvam — universe; kratavaḥ — great sacrificial performances; ca — and; yat-ātmakāḥ — founded upon whom; agniḥ — the sacred fire; āhutayaḥ — the oblations; mantrāḥ — the incantations; sāńkhyam — the doctrine of philosophic investigation; yogaḥ — the art of meditation; ca — and; yat — at whom; paraḥ — aimed; ekaḥ — one; eva — alone; advitīyaḥ — without a second; asau — He; aitat-ātmyam — founded upon Him; idam — this; jagat — universe; ātmanā — through Himself (i.e., His energies); ātma — Himself alone; āśrayaḥ — having as His shelter; sabhyāḥ — O members of the assembly; sṛjati — He creates; avati — maintains; hanti — and destroys; ajaḥ — the unborn.
This entire universe is founded upon Him, as are the great sacrificial performances, with their sacred fires, oblations and mantras. Sāńkhya and yoga both aim toward Him, the one without a second. O assembly members, that unborn Lord, relying solely on Himself, creates, maintains and destroys this cosmos by His personal energies, and thus the existence of this universe depends on Him alone.
