Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.86.44
nādya no darśanaḿ prāptaḥ
yarhīdaḿ śaktibhiḥ sṛṣṭvā
praviṣṭo hy ātma-sattayā
śrutadevaḥ uvāca — Śrutadeva said; na — not; adya — today; naḥ — by us; darśanam — vision; prāptaḥ — obtained; param — only; parama — the supreme; pūruṣaḥ — person; yarhi — when; idam — this (universe); śaktibhiḥ — with His energies; sṛṣṭvā — creating; praviṣṭaḥ — entered; hi — indeed; ātma — His own; sattayā — in the state of existence.
Śrutadeva said: It is not that we have attained the audience of the Supreme Person only today, for we have in fact been associating with Him ever since He created this universe with His energies and then entered it in His transcendental form.
