|Canto 12: The Age of Deterioration||Chapter 9: Mārkaṇḍeya Ṛṣi Sees the Illusory Potency of the Lord|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 12.9.19
sahasrāṇi śatāni ca
vyatīyur bhramatas tasmin
ayuta — tens of thousands; ayuta — by tens of thousands; varṣāṇām — of years; sahasrāṇi — thousands; śatāni — hundreds; ca — and; vyatīyuḥ — passed by; bhramataḥ — as he wandered; tasmin — in that; viṣṇu-māyā — by the illusory energy of Lord Viṣṇu; āvṛta — covered; ātmanaḥ — his mind.
Countless millions of years passed as Mārkaṇḍeya wandered about in that deluge, his mind bewildered by the illusory energy of Lord Viṣṇu, the Supreme Personality of Godhead.
