|Canto 12: The Age of Deterioration||Chapter 11: Summary Description of the Mahāpuruṣa|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 12.11.50
evaḿ hy anādi-nidhano
bhagavān harir īśvaraḥ
kalpe kalpe svam ātmānaḿ
vyūhya lokān avaty ajaḥ
evam — thus; hi — indeed; anādi — without beginning; nidhanaḥ — or end; bhagavān — the Personality of Godhead; hariḥ — Lord Hari; īśvaraḥ — the supreme controller; kalpe kalpe — in each day of Brahmā; svam ātmānam — Himself; vyūhya — expanding into various forms; lokān — the worlds; avati — protects; ajaḥ — the unborn Lord.
For the protection of all the worlds, the Supreme Personality of Godhead Hari, who is unborn and without beginning or end, thus expands Himself during each day of Brahmā into these specific categories of His personal representations.
Thus end the purports of the humble servants of His Divine Grace A. C. Bhaktivedanta Swami Prabhupāda to the Twelfth Canto, Eleventh Chapter, of the Śrīmad-Bhāgavatam, entitled "Summary Description of the Mahāpuruṣa."
